In the past year, I’ve discovered the magic of podcasts.
I know, I’m a little late to the podcast party, I guess, but better late than never! It’s amazing how listening to these shows has truly improved my life. Commutes are less stressful, exercise isn’t as boring, and I don’t spend my evening downtime watching lame TV shows. Instead, I’m using my extra time to learn something, be it a life lesson, a new way to meditate, an awesome vegan recipe or how to solve a really pressing problem.
Here are my ten absolute favorite podcasts, described in their own words. Click on the titles for links so you can easily add these great shows to your playlists.
This Podcast Will Change Your Life-–-Hosted by Ben Tanzer: Ben Tanzer describes himself as a “Strategist. Storyteller. Lecturer. And lover of all things taco and doughnut.” His podcast covers a variety of fascinating topics. Check out his recent interview with Jennifer Pastiloff, founder of The Manifestation.
The Tim Ferriss Show by Tim Ferriss: “Tim Ferriss is a self-experimenter and bestselling author, best known for The 4-Hour Workweek, which has been translated into 40+ languages. Newsweek calls him “the world’s best human guinea pig,” and The New York Times calls him “a cross between Jack Welch and a Buddhist monk.” In this show, he deconstructs world-class performers from eclectic areas (investing, chess, pro sports, etc.), digging deep to find the tools, tactics, and tricks that listeners can use.
