2018’s most-listened-to podcast interviews

Business Live 2018 top ten shows2018 was a super year for the Business Live radio show.

Over the course of 40 or so shows, broadcasting live on Friday mornings throughout the year, I got to pick the brains of a diverse range of business leaders, social entrepreneurs and self-employed creative folk.

Guests generously shared their experiences, advice, ups and downs, top tips and formative moments.

You can see details of all the shows in chronological order on the show page here or via the interviews category here. I very much appreciate the involvement of all my guests and all the comments from listeners.

The show is broadcast live on FM radio and through Sheffield Live!’s internet livestream.

It’s also available as a podcast afterwards and thanks to the magic of analytics I can tell you which Business Live show podcasts were listened to the most in 2018.

As you’ll see, this top 10 list (of the most listened to podcasts during 2018) includes one show from 2016 and one from 2017. A diverse and eclectic bunch of topics, with fascinating guests:
