I don’t know about you, but work and life keep me on the go constantly. Not much time to relax or for keeping up with the latest trends, news, or business leaders. Whether you’ve got a commute, or just travel a lot for your work, let me tell you, podcasts can be your best friend! While music is always good, and audiobooks are also great, there is something about a podcast that you can’t beat. There is a podcast for any interest, truly! Not to mention they’re generally shorter than an hour; much less of a commitment than an audiobook. Use that commute or travel time to learn something new, or stay up-to-date on current events. And the lovely thing is, they’re right there on your phone, so you’ve always got a bit of entertainment for unexpected downtime. It’s also worth noting that your favorite radio shows may also be released as a podcast - perfect for those times you miss the live airing!
Here are some of my current favorite podcasts:
Glambition Radio with Ali Brown: This bi-weekly podcast features the ultra-successful Ali Brown, interviewing other powerful business leaders. I absolutely love Ali’s energy; she’s just so motivational. Her backstory is also really incredible.
Get a Street Smart MBA with Sarah Shaw: Sarah interviews such inspirational business people! I really enjoyed her interview with Marcus Lemonis, star of The Profit. I love him and how he uses his own money to turn failing businesses around!
Spirit of 608: This podcast’s tagline is, “We are hellbent on one thing: elevating women in FEST”. (FEST being Fashion, Entrepreneurship, Sustainability, and Tech… so basically all the things I’m about!)
I asked the rest of my team what they’re listening to lately, since I realized I’m pretty focused on my fashion + entrepreneurship podcasts…
Heather from my marketing team says she loves the Stuff You Should Know podcast for in-depth discussions of sometimes unexpected, but always fascinating topics. She also recommends the TED Radio Hour, which is based on some of the most popular TED talks.
Jillian from the marketing team recommended America’s Test Kitchen podcast, which is no longer being produced but still has a ton of episodes from the past to listen to; and The Splendid Table, which absorbed some of the ATK segments when it was canceled.
I hope these podcast recommendations gave you something new to listen to! We’re always on the lookout for new shows to listen to ourselves, so let us know your current favorites down below in the comments!
Can we talk about Moms a little bit this week? Moms are awesome, right? And sometimes, because they’re just there, doing their thing, all the time, we can take them for granted.
