4 retail podcasts to keep you ahead of the game

If you can’t get enough of what’s happening in retail today - and it is hard to keep up with so much change - we’ve put together this source of retail podcasts.

Covering technology, eCommerce, news and interviews, these podcasts will keep you up to date with trends and hopefully inspire ideas you can bring to your own business.

Each podcast below is from the US because we couldn’t find any from Australia or New Zealand that were truly retail focused or published with any regularity. If you know of any good podcasts that we’ve missed, please contact us and we’ll share them as well.
