Favorite Podcasts

These days I’m finding audiobooks and podcasts way more interesting than what I can pull up on TV! Whether I’m in the car, on a walk, or working there is something playing in the background. This summer I’ve discovered several new podcasts that have quickly become new favorites.

Here are My Favorite Podcasts:

Personal Growth

Lisa Whittle  Jesus Over Everything Join Lisa every Tuesday and Thursday for short devotional teachings and great interviews.

Your Enneagram Coach: The Podcast  The mission of the podcast is to help individuals and couples dive deeper into the Enneagram from a Biblical perspective. Leading the way in teaching the Gospel-centered Enneagram, Hosts Beth and Jeff McCord want to make personal awareness and growth accessible to everyone, everywhere so they can experience freedom in every area of their lives. 

Holy Post Podcast  Phil Vischer who is best known as the creator of Veggie Tales and the voice of Bob the Tomato and Skye Jethani who is an author, editor, speaker, consultant, and pastor have teamed up to produce one of the most culturally relevant podcasts of our time. Their conversations are blunt, nuanced, and honest but they will always keep Christ at the center and that’s the most important point.

Current Events

Armchair Expert with Dax Shephard: Dax Shephard is humble and kind. He swears a lot, so this one might not be for everyone, but besides that, I have appreciated how open Dax is about why he thinks the way he thinks. Dax says this is “a podcast that celebrates the messiness of being human.”

Pantsuit Politics: They say “We’re Beth and Sarah of Pantsuit Politics, a podcast for real conversations that help us understand politics, democracy, and the news – while still treating each other like thoughtful human beings. We’re here to create an informative and grace-filled space by respecting each other as people who are sharing insights into the issues and our hearts. Grace is something that everyone deserves, and it allows for greater depth in our conversations and connections.”

The Daily  by The New York Times They say:  This is what the news should sound like. The biggest stories of our time, told by the best journalists in the world. Hosted by Michael Barbaro. Twenty minutes a day, five days a week, ready by 6 a.m.

Content Marketing (My Day Job)

Akimbo: A Podcast from Seth Godin Seth speaks on a subject from his years of experience and then also answers listener questions. For me, this podcast is the chance to sit under an industry expert and just glean wise ideas.

Mixtus Media – They say: “Book Marketing Simplified is a podcast to help authors save time with their marketing so they can spend more valuable time writing.” Their methods aren’t just for book marketing though. Are you launching a podcast or small business? Totally transferable.

Bonus Listens

The Next Right Thing– This is another short podcast that is packed with a thoughtful perspective focusing on decision making. 

That Sounds Fun– Annie Downs is all about fun and her podcast reflects this every week. Her laugh is contagious, but I also appreciate how vulnerable Annie gets with her guests. She asks unique questions other hosts don’t think to ask because she’s willing to be vulnerable and transparent.

Unlocking Us with Brene Brown– Brene says her podcast is about “Conversations that unlock the deeply human part of who we are, so that we can live, love, parent, and lead with more courage and heart.”

Football season is just around the corner and you know what that means…road trips! Download some of my favorite podcasts to keep you company this fall.
