I LOVE podcasts!
If you know me in real life, you probably already know this and I’ve probably texted you at some point, with the words, “you have to listen to this” and a link to a podcast episode. Or worse, I may have even “made you” listen to one.
I listen to podcasts while cleaning, while cooking, while driving, and sometimes while in the shower. It’s not that I’m looking for a distraction. I just love listening to inspiring people tell inspiring stories.
I also love smiling and podcasts make me smile. EVERY. SINGLE. TIME. Now onto the list.
It’s THE most popular podcast around. I’ve both ugly-cried and ugly-laughed during SO many episodes of this show because it’s SO darn good. Hosted by Ira Glass.
This podcast blows my mind every time. So much so I don’t even know how to describe it. This is from the On Being website “On Being opens up the animating questions at the center of human life: What does it mean to be human, and how do we want to live?” Hosted by Krista Tippett.
Elise’s shows are about blogging, small-business, goal-setting, motivation, and inspiration. I love her point of view on SO many things and her podcast doesn’t disappoint. Hosted by Elise Blaha Cripe.
Currently in production on Seasons 2 & 3 and not currently airing. This was the podcast that launched a thousand podcasts. Season 1, about The Murder of Hae Min Lee, while a bit intense, was just such good storytelling. Hosted by Sarah Koenig.
Jess interviews really interesting people who are going to inspire you to live a life with intention and get you moving towards those dreams of yours. Jess infuses her own, very mindful, ideas and questions throughout each episode as well. Hosted by Jess Lively.
If you’re a parent, were a parent, thinking about becoming a parent in the future you must listen to this podcast. Funny and heartwarming all rolled up into one. Hosted by Hillary Frank.
