We’ve put together some of our favourite podcasts for writers that focus on practical tips and storytelling for editorial teams who want to submerge themselves further into the written word.
For practical advice: Hot Copy Podcast
Delivered by successful Australian copywriters Belinda Weaver and Kate Toon, the Hot Copy Podcast’s main focus is to help freelance copywriters with their craft and their businesses, but it is packed full of useful advice for publisher’s editorial and marketing teams too. Episodes are lighthearted and fun, and focus on different elements of web copy, SEO, writing resources, time management, and interviews.

Creator of Grammar Girl Mignon Fogarty delivers this podcast, which provides writing advice on punctuation, grammar, style and voice within episodes of 5 to 35 minutes in length. The podcast has been around for ages and is hugely popular, but also super nerdy, so best for only the most engaged members of your editorial team.
For storytelling: The Tip Off
A great podcast for inciting passion for digging a little deeper to produce the most informative content, The Tip Off interviews investigative journalists about how they collected the facts for their best stories. The storytelling is gripping, and draws the listener in to feel like an accomplice.
