To help people working from home during the Covid-19 crisis keep learning, stay entertained and up to date with the latest news and insights from the global shipping sector, Hanseaticsoft, a leading provider of maritime software has compiled a list of seven of the best podcasts focused on the maritime industry.
Podcasts are one of the best ways to keep a finger on the pulse of the industry. They provide valuable insights from some of the world’s most influential experts and introduce new ideas to the listener.
Unlike reading blogs and magazines or watching videos, listening to podcasts is more time-efficient: people can listen to them while doing other things at work or home.
Alexander Buchmann, Managing Director of Hanseaticsoft says, “Many people around the world are self-isolating, working from home or spending longer than planned on ships due to cancelled crew change-overs. As people slowly get used to this new way of working during the Covid-19 shutdown, listening to podcasts can be a great way to break up the day while learning something new, being inspired by industry experts and supporting professional growth.”
Here the Hanseaticsoft team recommend their favourite maritime industry podcasts:
