I am so late to the game here – but I am OBSESSED with podcasts lately. My husband actually started listening to them a few years ago and (sorry babe!) I thought podcasts were a weird concept.
However, here I am – obsessed and eager to take trips in the car just to finish my podcasts.
What is a podcast? Well, it is an audio file available on the internet or on your phone. Podcasts are usually part of a series and subscribers receive a new podcast automatically each week. Best part – podcasts are free!
For example, one of my favorite podcasts is Soul on Fire by The Balanced Blonde. Her podcast comes out every Wednesday. So I downloaded the podcast app on my phone and subscribed to Soul on Fire by The Balanced Blonde. Now when I wake up on Wednesday mornings, her podcast is already downloaded on my phone and all I have to do is hit play when I get in the car.
Another great feature about podcasts is the ability to hit pause and listen to the podcast later on or listen to podcasts from 7 months back – unlike the radio where it is one and done type of situation.
Like I said before, I LOVE listening to podcasts in the car. I initially didn’t think I would like it because I love blasting my music and getting lost in the lyrics on the way to work. However, I feel like the biggest multi-tasker ever and so accomplished when I drive and listen to podcasts. I typically listen to health and wellness podcasts – some make me laugh and others are just SO INFORMATIVE.
So without further ado, let me share with you favorite podcasts right now.
- The SKINNY CONFIDENTIAL – This podcast is hosted by Lauryn & Michael Bosstick, a dynamic duo. Lauren has a kick ass vibe that demands your attention and Michael surprisingly always has some great input on the topic at issue. They chat about their personal success and lifestyle hacks including marital advice, sex life, health tips, and LOTS of guidance on creating your own brand success. They are relate-able, hilarious and I definitely recommend you replace your morning radio show with some Lauren and Michael every Tuesday.
- Soul on Fire by The Balanced Blonde : This wonderful soul talks about everything wellness and health. She is the girl next door who everyone wants to be friends with because she is just so kind. Jordan Younger has already had such an incredible wellness journey before hitting age 30 and is wise beyond her years. Her podcast is more of a conversation with guests such as Jeanette Odgen (Blogger @ShuttheKaleUp), Girls from HighVibeLiving, Sophie Jaffe (Philosophie) and many many more. This is one of my most favorite podcasts – I highly recommend this to anyone looking to tap into their health, wellness, yoga or spiritual side.
- Mr. and Mrs. Guinea Pig: You all know Heather Debrow from Real Housewives of Orange County and Terry Debrow from Botched right?! Well these characters have their own podcast and it is downright HILARIOUS. Listeners call in and ask the couple advice on marriage, health and anything lifestyle. I love the variety and diversity of each and every episode.
- Bulletproof Radio: If you haven’t heard of Dave Asprey then maybe you have been living under a rock….This health guru has spent over $1 million hacking his own biology. He goes over the steps to hacking your bio and explains how it is done – full disclosure, some of the information is pretty intense. Sometimes I have to rewind and listen to parts of the podcast again. But honestly, his podcasts are SO interesting and informative. I highly recommend this podcast while you sip on your Bulletproof coffee (See my post next week on my variations of Bulletproof coffee!).
What podcasts are you all listening to? I love hearing podcast recommendations to add to my repertoire. Till next time, sip on that BOOCH! xx Erica
