MDM recorded nearly one podcast every week during 2022, and earlier this week we continued the trend with our first podcast of the new year. And while we and our guests kept a steady pace of churning out insightful, actionable audio content each week, there was one particular news item that held our audience’s attention early in the year. MDM’s coverage of Motion’s acquisition of Kaman Distribution Group resulted in a lot of page views and podcasts listens from late 2021 through early 2022. Last year, our most-listened-to podcast was MDM CEO Tom Gale’s conversation with Motion President Randy Breaux about the $1.3 billion acquisition. What was the most-read podcast recap? Our summary of that podcast, which published Feb. 9. The deal made huge waves in the industrial distribution industry, and our numbers show it.

But there were many other podcasts our audience also seemed to enjoy. Here are the most popular MDM podcasts from 2022, based on the number of listens:

1) Motion Industries President Randy Breaux breaks down the Kaman Distribution Group acquisition.

If you didn’t see our email announcement about it, Breaux is part of MDM’s upcoming Virtual M&A Conference, held Feb. 22-23. We’ll have a fireside chat with him where we get an update on Motion’s integration of KDG, what both sides learned during the deal process and Breaux’s general insights into what makes a successful acquisition.

2) Grainger’s CFO Talks Tech Stack, Pricing Strategy and More
