  1. What I like about podcasts is that you can listen to them no matter what you are doing.

  2. Thanks for the comprehensive list, I can see why business owners listen instead of read. I will have to check some of these out. What are your tips on being included in a podcast?

  3. Great round up up of pods 🙂 A few of my favorites here, and a few new ones to add to my list! Thanks.

  4. Entrepreneurs on Fire is definitely one of my favorites as well and I interviewed John Lee Dumas for my podcast as well! Hoping I can rank among these one day too 🙂
