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:
Lisa Whittle – 5 Word Prayers I store these up and listen to several at a time but each 5-minute episode is PACKED with information and or tips.
Alli Worthington Podcast Alli has been a favorite author of mine for years, so it’s not surprising I love her podcast except not ever author transitions well to other mediums. Alli’s podcast structure is different than others I listen to in that half the time is spent interviewing someone and the other half is spent answering 3 questions. Alli always has great strategies for saving time and keeping a healthy perspective.
HER with Amena Brown I loved Amena’s first book and her podcast is great too. This first season is focusing on body image and she’s done a great job of highlighting authors and speakers I’m not hearing any other place.
Katie Couric: I love Katie’s interview style and how respectful she is of her guests. Brian, Katie’s co-host does an excellent amount of research so interviews are thorough and well rounded.
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.
Pantsuit Politics: I had to stop listening to this one for awhile, but true to their word Sarah and Beth continue to aim for civility and nuance in politics.
Content Marketing (My Day Job)
Christy Wright’s Business Boutique: Christy is measured and thoughtful. Her podcast highlights a variety of areas of owning a business. I appreciate her insights even when they don’t directly apply to my work.
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.
Write Now with Sarah Werner Inspiration from writers for writers.
Typology-The Enneagram has been so helpful to me in learning about myself as well as learning how to better communicate with my friends and family. Ian Cron does a great job of giving people space to flesh out why they say and do what they do within the context of their number.
The Next Right Thing– This is another short podcast that is packed with thoughtful perspective. I often listen to this one twice to make sure I didn’t miss anything the first time around.
That Sounds Fun– Annie Downs is all about fun and her podcast reflects this every week. Her laugh is contagious, but I also appreciate SO much how vulnerable Annie gets with her guests.
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.
