I feel like I was pretty late to the game listening to podcasts. Devin introduced me to a few back in 2015 while we were doing home improvement projects, but I didn’t really start listening to them until last year. I tend to listen to a lot of music in my home, but I found that sometimes listening to music couldn’t hold my attention while I was cleaning. I started asking for suggestions and my list of my favorite podcasts kept growing after that. I’m excited to be able to share the podcasts that make commutes and cleaning a lot shorter for me and I’d love your suggestions if you see any that you think I’d like too 🙂 .
- Bold New Mom
I can’t say enough good things about this podcast! Some of the ideas that Jody Moore puts out there are really out there, but after I think about them for a while (and listen to the podcast episode again) I always find there is a lot there for me to learn. I’ve recommended this podcast so many times and will continue to do so.
- Awesome with Alison
I love Alison! She is so down to earth, hilarious, and then I always end up learning so much listening to her. Alison and her husband have such a great energy when they’re talking on the podcast together and I feel that Alison really breaks the self-help mold with her quirky personality.
- Good Life Project
This podcast sounds like exactly what it is- a podcast about how to have a good life! Topics range from mental health to creativity. Some of my favorites like Brene Brown and Gretchen Rubin have been interviewed.
- The Anxiety Coaches Podcast – Relief from Anxiety, Panic, and PTSD
I love this podcast because it breaks down different aspects of anxiety and makes it much more easier to understand.
- Sounds Good with Branden Harvey
Branden is a story teller with a knack of finding a variety of people who bring real life + good lessons to the table. I have several of his episodes that are on my “to listen” list. I love his upbeat attitude and how heavy topics are always balanced with optimism.
- Love Rice
I was introduced to this podcast after following the creator’s blog for several years. This podcast is always so insightful in helping me figure out different ways I can improve from how to be happier to how to improve my relationships.
- Explore Your Enthusiasm
Tara Swiger covers creative business, gives great self-help tips about life, and produced this episode that I’ve listened to several times about Happiness and Radical Responsibility.
- Raise Your Hand. Say Yes.
I always feel inspired after listening to this podcast by Tiffany Han. She has a knack at finding creatives that always make me think of things in a new way. I really enjoyed this episode about intuition.
- Chasing Creative
I love this podcast because it is just down to earth people sharing how they make creativity a part of their every day life. My first episode was with Rachel Dawson whose blog I have followed for a long time.
- Young House Love Has A Podcast
I’ve been following this blog forever and I was excited when they made a podcast! John and Sherry are a married couple that love to fix up their house + tackle other random home projects. I’ve been loving hearing about the beach house they’re fixing up too!
- A Slob Comes Clean / A Slob Comes Clean
Slob Comes Clean shares detailed information usually 30-45 minutes about organization strategies. Daily Deslobification BlogCast shares clips that are usually 10 minutes and under that are the host’s read blog posts.
- Stuff You Missed in History Class
This was the first podcast I ever listened to! Devin and I love to listen to this when we’re on road trips. The history the hosts discuss ranges from the interesting to the macabre.
- What Should I Read Next? Book Talk
I have been following Anne Bogel’s blog for a long time because I found her posts on MBTI. In this podcast, Anne interviews a different person every episode and talks to them about their favorite books. She then ends the podcast with suggestions she has based on their conversation.
Each episode is a story with one person or a topic with several people who relate to it. I love the variety of topics and people on this podcast. People’s stories really matter a lot from the sad to the beautifully happy and I’m so happy for this podcast to remind me of that.
- Stuff You Should Know
Want really random trivia or conversation fillers? This is your podcast.
- Mormon Channel Daily
While I am Mormon and listen to this, there have been many times my phone flipped to this podcast while I was doing something else and I tried to figure out what self-help podcast I was listening to. The topics are uplifting and the episodes are usually around 10 minutes.
- BYU Classic Speeches
This is a variety of classic LDS speeches.
- BYU Speeches
Every Tuesday BYU campus shuts down for one hour for a devotional. While Devin and I were dating, we’d always watch devotional at one of our apartment’s or in one of the classrooms on campus together; this is such a fond memory. I love listening to the devotional still 🙂 .
I think you can understand after this list why my phone keeps on filling up so quickly. I don’t listen to every single episode of these podcasts because there simply aren’t enough hours in the day, but I want to make sure what I do listen to helps me learn, grow, and improves my life in someway. Do you have any suggestions based on my favorite podcasts?
