Podcasts to Get You Ready for #heweb19


by J.S. Stansel

Headed you the HighEdWeb Annual Conference in Milwaukee? Before you get on the plane, download these higher ed podcasts for your trip to get yourself ready for #heweb19.

Higher Ed Social:

Hear from some of the top folks working in higher education. Guests are not just limited to social media, but come from all over higher education. From admissions to student services, this podcast has it all. Lougan is a great host with a passion and unbridled enthusiasm for what he does.

Josie and the Podcast:

Just starting its fourth season, it’s a great time to pick up this podcast if you haven’t already. Featuring interviews with university leadership, marketers and educators, Josie’s interview style is thoughtful and insightful. 

Super U:

Hosted by #heweb19 keynote speaker, Erik Qualman, each episode of this podcast gives you seven supertips from the top thought leaders from Warren Buffet to Lady Gaga. Be sure to give this a listen before Qualman’s High Ed Web keynote.


Exploring the challenges that higher education institutions face, this podcast from the Up & Up agency explores a number of topics vital to higher ed marketers. I HIGHLY recommend the most recent episode featuring Erica Boltz from the University of Florida Health covering accessibility in social media.

The Drunken UX Podcast:

Hang on to your seats (and drinks) for this one. Michael Fienen and Aaron Hill’s rants are epic and their thoughts on the issues facing web developers and creating a better web are always spot on.

This only scratches the surface of some of the great podcast content for higher ed marketers and web folks out there. Do you have any recommendations? Share them in the comments!
