Podcasts: Everyone seems to have one and everyone seems to love them.

The insurance industry is no different. With so many independent agencies releasing their own podcasts, it can become a cyclone of information and podcasts to search through. So in honor of #InternationalPodcastDay we’ve compiled a list of podcasts we’ve found helpful and entertaining.

They’re real. They’re honest. They’re fun to listen to. Insurance Agency Intelligence is all about “real data from real agents in real agencies.”

If you go to their website and look at a post of their episodes, they offer so much information. You can take something from more than the episode itself. They offer key quotes, resources they mentioned, and key takeaway points.

What draws you in most is the empowering energy that Jason Cass offers his listeners along with guests who offer so much information.

Hosted by Joey Giangola, as with everything that Agency Nation provides, their podcast doesn’t disappoint. In a way that few podcasts lead by insurance industry members, they create the engaging and (dare we say, typical) podcast listening environment. They’re creative with their introduction sequences, they let the guests provide their knowledge, and they treat the podcast as more than a way to get their word out there.

If you’re looking for a place to discover new (and even old)‌marketing and sales tools and strategies in the insurance industry, then look no further.

What makes this podcast so wonderful is how simple the episode format is. With episodes that last between 5-10 minutes long, each of them discusses on topic or comparison. The titles don’t lie with this one, each episode focuses on explaining insurance definitions and situations.

Plainly put, host and creator Matt Dietz simply explains insurance.
