From 30 minutes to a whole hour, you want to listen to a podcast that will give you accurate SEO information for your website and won’t put you to sleep while driving home or out for a walk.

After a few months of following Dan on Twitter, I was really happy to find his podcast on digital marketing. He interviews industry leaders like Wil Reynolds, Annie Cushing, and Ronell Smith on topics like featured snippets, AMP pages, and branding. This is by far my favorite SEO podcast right now because he shares really accurate information and actionable tips.
