Modern Sales Podcast

A sales podcast that’ll help you sell more by understanding how people buy.

Your New Favorite Sales Podcast

At the heart of all sales is people. It doesn’t matter if you’re a business owner, solo consultant, or frontline seller – it all comes down to people. And the most important question you can answer about people is how they buy and make decisions.

Modern Sales is a sales podcast that’ll help you build sales skills by understanding how people buy. Every week we publish two episodes: one solo (with just Liston, the host), and one interview episode. In every episode, you’ll get actionable advice based on the psychology, behavioral economics, neuroscience, and first-hand experience behind how people buy.

If you’ve never heard the show before, here are some of our favorite episodes:
