Listen up! The top 10 employee experience podcasts

A list of the top 10 employee experience podcasts that cover lessons, ideas, and experiments.

We love podcasts at Atomicwork. From learning the latest updates on GenAI, to understanding Yuval Noah Harari's take on the meaning of life, podcasts are probably the most efficient portals to take a trip to another world and back in a 30-minute train commute to work.

We're equally, if not more, passionate about employee experience (EX). Which also means that we consume heaps of content around this subject day in and day out, podcasts being an important medium in that regard.

All this is to say that we have an above-average taste in employee experience podcasts, and content in general. We have pooled our favorite EX podcasts and episodes, and put together this handy list for you, in no particular order. So this way, you too can join us on this auditory journey to EX-cellence.

Dive in, enjoy, and let us know your pick(s).
