Following on from my post last week on podcasts, I thought I would share some other resources and blogs which I find interesting and useful for my career.

Fact check and Full fact
In this time of ‘fake news’ it is so important that being able to check what’s being reported.

A must for all PR professionals.

Behavioural insights team blog
So many interesting articles around the ‘nudge’ theory and much more.

PR moment
Another must for PR professionals. I love the good PR/bad PR stories

Harvard Business Review
Lots of great articles on business, marketing and comms. Recently read this article which is a really clear explanation of the difference of vision, mission and values and purpose.

Business Insider
Lots of interesting articles on business and life generally.

Interesting articles on work, well-being and more.

What am I missing? What are your favourites?

I read this article recently by Richard Fogg of CCGroup, on why curiosity is so important for PR professionals – and how to feed it. It inspired me to think about my favourite career-related podcasts. I love to stick a podcast on while I am working so, in no particular order, my recommended listening includes:

Beyond Today

Bills itself as “News built to last”. It takes a news story and then looks at it more depth and considers what it means for the future etc.

Political thinking

Nick Robinson talks about what’s really going on in British politics. Nick Robinson is one of my favourite journalists. His insight is great. His interviews are brilliant. He always seems to ask the right question.

The Disrupters

A really interesting podcast interviewing entrepreneurs by Kamal Ahmed and Rohan Silva.

Fortunately pod cast

I love this behind the scenes insight into radio. Jane and fi are engaging, the guests are interesting which all adds up to a captivating podcast.


Who doesn’t love a TED talk?! Thousands of talks on wide ranging themes.

This all seems like a lot of BBC podcasts. What am I missing? What else is good?
