I’ve been a huge fan of podcasts for some time now, so I thought it would be fun to share some of my favorites with you. While I typically load up on them any time I’ll be making a long drive, lately I’ve also loved listening to them while doing more menial tasks like data entry. Music is fantastic, but sometimes it’s fun to break things up and learn something new!
Here are some of my current favorites (clockwise from top left):
The Lively Show
This show is so fantastic, and always inspires me to live and work more intentionally. Jess consistently brings on amazing guests and I’ve been exposed to so many phenomenal entrepreneurs, bloggers and individuals. She recently took a break to prepare for the second season, and I’m so glad to have these episodes back in rotation!
Perfect for: business owners, anyone looking to live life more intentionally
Stuff You Missed in History Class
Another favorite of mine (and Kate’s!) that we’ve been listening to for several years at this point. I was a history major in college, so I’ve loved getting refreshers on topics we discussed and learning about other historical events for the first time. The hosts really go out of their way to do thorough research, but make sure the episodes are lively and interesting instead of dense. They also have a very extensive archive, so you can find episodes on almost any time period or topic you’re looking for!
Perfect for: history lovers, lifelong learners
NPR’s TED Radio Hour
Many of NPR’s podcasts are in heavy rotation here, but I’ve really been enjoying the TED Radio Hour. It takes TED talks, shares excerpts from them and then does in-depth interviews with the speakers. Each episode is thematic, with recent topics ranging from getting organized to why we lie, so you’ll hear the stories of several different speakers each time.
Perfect for: conference junkies, Brene Brown fans
This podcast is both informative and fun! Emily and Kathleen make me feel like I’m having a fun, informal and informational conversation with some of my favorite #girlboss friends. I always get so many great ideas from their episodes and take comfort in hearing from other business owners who have been in similar situations!
Perfect for: business owners, solopreneurs, anyone with a side hustle
