Do you listen to podcasts? A recent USA Today article says ‘The land of podcasting, once an esoteric outpost devoted to heavily tech-oriented chats, is booming.’ There are podcasts in every niche – something for everyone – and whether you are a listener, or one of the growing band of podcast producers you’ll be able to find an episode to interest you, or an audience for your home-grown presentation, and podcasts for vacation rental owners are no exception.
My own podcast, Vacation Rental Success is a lot of fun to put together, uncomplicated to produce on minimum equipment, and even easier to upload to a WordPress blog. I was blown away with the number of downloads from the first episode and they continue to be listened to, months after the first upload. I also subscribe to many other podcasts that keep me company in the car, on an airplane, while out running or at the gym and thought I should share my 4 favorites that deliver terrific information and resources that are great podcasts for vacation rental owners, and will help you succeed in the business.
Erik Fisher – Beyond the To-Do List
I’ve learned a lot from Erik’s interviews with many people about how they have managed their time, prioritized their tasks, and taken steps to avoid burnout. Given that we vacation rental owners juggle so many things to keep our properties maintained, bookings managed, and guests happy, every little helps on the organization front.

Pat Flynn – Smart Passive Income
Pat’s podcasts are my top of the line favorites. If you are interested in going beyond the finite vacation rental income your place is generating, then subscribe to this one. Focused on entrepreneurial activities, the interviews and resource tips that Pat offers are some of the most valuable content on the web.
