For the longest time I’ve been a fan of listening to music while I work out, but lately I’ve switched from Team Music to Team Podcast. I find podcasts to be fun and engaging, so much that I’ll actually exercise longer if it means getting to listen to the end of a show. Always a good thing, right? Here’s a roundup of my current favorite podcasts, in no particular order.
Serial - Technically the first season is over, but if you haven’t listened to this yet, give it a go. Host Sarah Koenig tells one story over multiple weeks, the first of which is a true crime story.
StartUp – A podcast about the starting of a podcast company, giving a behind-the-scenes look at starting and running a business. This is very well done and the same serialized type of format as Serial.
The Lively Show – Host Jess Lively is all about living with intention, and each week she interviews amazing guests to talk about where they are and how they’re living intentionally.
Fresh Rag – The Show - A podcast about creative ventures that discusses everything from business to marketing and media strategy. Host Dave Conrey interviews expert creatives about their businesses and secrets to success.
Smart Passive Income – This show is all about discovering passive income streams so you can have more time and freedom to do what you love.
I’ve also heard I should be listening to Stuff You Should Know. Any other awesome listening suggestions?
