I try to squeeze in a podcast whenever I have a minute to spare. There is plenty to choose from and I am sure that we all can find pods that cover our very special interest. This includes the packaging industry which is covered in the quite impressive and completely overwhelming flow of pods.
And here I mean pods, not webinars, that are reasonably regularly occurring broadcasts and here are a few to bookmark to the pod platform of your choice.
Below I have listed a few English speaking pods that are focused on the packaging industry and current packaging issues.
Packaging Strategies, the American trade magazine, is running a pod under the name Packaging Perspectives. They are interviewing industry experts and are covering industry news to keep us “up-to-date, informed, and entertained.” Not very frequent but in total 6 episodes during 2019.
Flexible Packaging is a related magazine who are offering the Flexible Packaging Podcast. The same concept as above but a bit less frequent, 3 shows during last year. And with a focus on flexible packaging.
People of Packaging Podcast is also an American podcast where people in the packaging industry are discussing current issues with Adam Peek and Ted Taitt and is a part of the Business and Bourbon network.
Shelf Impactors is about branding and packaging design. Blue Nectar Design, a British design agency is behind the show. It might have a slightly sporadic schedule but there are interesting things to dig out from archives.
FoodBev Media are behind the FoodBev podcast. Focus is more on news updates rather than interviews and is a weekly podcast, at least until November last year. It has been quiet since, but we hope for a soon return.
Packaging Europe, the magazine, is distributing a podcast every now and then. 7 shows were recorded last year and already two are available for this year. Various topics and interviews.
Turn up the volume and enjoy. Or why not make a pod of your own!
