Some other ones I’m a fan of, which are worth a mention, are The CPG Guys, Hearts & Carts, and Brand Start Goes Healthy—all great podcasts.

“The Skinny Confidential”: Clean Product Focus

I love listening to “The Skinny Confidential.” Lauren has her own line of CPG products, but she also hosts other CPG founders. They focus on clean, toxic-free products so that you can minimize your exposure to heavy metals. She also does a great job asking juicy questions and spills all the tea. There is no holding back when it comes to “The Skinny Confidential” podcast, and I highly recommend it.

“The Shopper’s Mind”: Imparting Consumer Behavior Insights

The Shopper’s Mind podcast explores consumer psychology and behavior, uncovering insights to influence purchasing decisions. It offers valuable perspectives for brand managers and marketing directors in the CPG industry. 

In one episode, they discussed how color psychology impacts product packaging. This helped me understand the subconscious effects of color and make informed decisions for our packaging design to better resonate with our target audience.

“Consumer Goods Forum”: Innovation and Trends

One podcast that’s an absolute staple for me is “The Consumer Goods Forum Podcast.” It’s packed with insights on the latest trends and challenges in the CPG industry. 

Each episode offers a deep dive into topics that shape our market, from sustainability efforts to digital transformations. I find the blend of expert interviews and case studies particularly valuable for staying ahead in the fast-evolving consumer goods space. It’s not just informative; it’s a source of inspiration for innovation and strategic thinking.

 The podcast provides valuable updates on the CPG landscape and helps professionals stay informed about the latest developments in their product categories. It covers a wide range of topics relevant to CPG brands, making it a valuable resource for those looking to stay up to date and gain insights into their specific industry.
