5 Podcasts I Can’t Live Without

“My name is Kristi, and I’m a podcast-aholic.” 

Please don’t be offended by my dark humor.

But seriously, podcasts are ADDICTING. Like, it’s basically impossible to listen to just one, am I right?! 

If you’re like me, you’ve got a whole list of podcast subscriptions that entertain your eardrums and educate your brain. Popping in your headphones and tuning in to a podcast episode during a morning run or listening during a long commute to work always makes the time go by faster!

Amongst the myriad of podcasts that I listen to, here are the five podcasts that I cannot live without.

1. The Goal Digger Podcast

This podcast was created by Jenna Kutcher. She’s a photographer, Pinterest guru, and an AMAZING marketing and social media strategist. Jenna turned her $300 camera that she found on Craigslist into a multimillion dollar brand. 

I LOVE listening to this gal. She offers practical advice and has some really great girl bosses guest-starring on her show. I always learn something new, and I literally take notes so I can remember all of the great content! 

No matter how successful her business has become, she has remained super down-to-earth and relatable. She’s a Christian woman who loves her husband, dogs, and mac & cheese (see, totally relatable!).

2. The Angie Lee Show

OH. MY. GOSH. I’m OBSESSED with Angie Lee!

If you’ve tuned in to my podcast before, chances are good that you’ve heard Angie Lee’s name mentioned a time or two. This girl is AMAZING. She has the personality that makes you feel like she’s your best friend, even though you’ve never met.

Angie was previously a health coach, and she’s all about overcoming money blocks in your life and your business. She serves up business content in bite-size pieces that can be easily applied to any business.

She sprinkles in some curse words throughout her episodes, which I think is hilarious. Seriously, she cracks me up!

3. School of Greatness Podcast

This podcast is hosted by Lewis Howes, a former professional athlete turned lifestyle entrepreneur. It’s been around for over five years, so there’s TONS of amazing content to soak up.

Lewis keeps things interesting by rotating between solo shows and having guest speakers. Again, get out your notebooks because you’ll want to write down all of the great takeaways and insight that this podcast contains!

Lemme tell ya, this guy is so optimistic and down-to-earth. Do yourself a favor and follow Lewis Howes on all social media, and tune in to his TV show on Facebook Watch called The Inspired Life. You won’t regret it!

4. Tribe of Mentors Podcast

Hosted by Tim Ferriss, this podcast is basically a spin-off of his SUPER popular, bestselling book, The 4-Hour Workweek. Tim is a really cool guy.

The men and women that are interviewed in this podcast are absolutely incredible. I’ve found myself listening to episodes multiple times, and still learning something new each and every time.

The cool part is that all guests are asked the same 11 questions, and they each give such wildly different answers. It’s interesting to hear the different opinions.

5. The GaryVee Audio Experience Podcast

Ohhhhh, Gary Vaynerchuk (AKA GaryVee). This podcast host is extremely high energy, amazingly insightful, and SO DAMN SMART. 

At the age of 14, the Belarusian American entrepreneur started working at his dad’s liquor store in New Jersey. Fast forward about twenty-two years later, and he turned his father’s store into a multimillion dollar business.

Taking his entrepreneurial skills a step further, he started a communications company called VaynerX, and became a public speaker. He also hosts the AskGaryVee Show on Facebook and Youtube. 

His podcast episodes are all recordings of speeches from conferences, questions from the AskGaryVee Show, and even conversations he has with random people out in public. I PROMISE you will learn something from him every time you listen.

If you don’t know who GaryVee is, you’ve got to get a dose of him. And by that, I mean that he’s a lot to handle. I can’t promise that you’ll love him as much as I do, but I really think this guy is a genius.

Whether you’re an entrepreneur or just a fan of listening to podcasts in your spare time, there is so much that can be learned from these leaders and bosses. My list of favorite podcasts could go on and on, but these five have made a huge impact on me.

Honestly, I can’t go a day without listening to at least one podcast episode. I’m sure many of you can relate.
