10 essential podcasts that all driving instructors should be listening to:
(In no particular order!)
Project EDWARD - Every Day Without A Road Death. Surely that’s the goal for every driving instructor? It’s a great show by James Luckhurst that’s highlights some real issues on our roads.
Back Bedroom to Big Business - a great show by Dino Tartaglia and Simon Hartley that delves into some of the fundamentals of running/growing a business and talks about some of the common mistakes business owners make.
Dipod Adi - the granddaddy of all instructor podcasts, a source of news and some excellent guests, including me.
Fitter Food - thoughtful and insightful conversations around a huge variety of health and fitness topics. I’ve been listening for years and always pick up great advice.
Selling Without Sleaze Podcast - as instructors, we’re often anxious about things such as price increases and up selling, Sarah Jolley-Jarvis offers invaluable help around these and more.
The DID Podcast - Mick Knowles brings a wealth of knowledge and a great variety of guests to his show.
Richard Nicholls - the psychotherapist with the most calming voice in the world address some key mental health issues. As instructors we can become quite isolated and this show has certainly helped me in the past.
The DITC - short news features in bite sized audio form. Chris Bensted keeps us updated with relevant news.
Boss It - Carl Reader brings us his thoughts on good business practice and a whole host of topics, and has some excellent interviews. While not aimed at the industry, there’s plenty we can take away.
The Instructor Podcast - of course. Fantastic guests and a mediocre host, holding a mirror up to the industry.
