Podcasts have had a renaissance recently, as we recently blogged about, and many agencies, startups and businesses have created them to share their knowledge and content with their audiences. During a recent twitter chat, ThinkSEM mentioned listening to podcasts as a way to increase our knowledge about SEO, conversion rate optimization, and PPC and several people asked what the best podcasts were to listen to.

We’ve thought it over and picked out some of our favorites. Here are 13 podcasts that we recommend (in no particular order — you can click the image for the iTunes link).
