Hello, Monday Morning!
With what seems like less and less time to read, I’ve become a huge fan of podcasts. I’m not sure how fond Kayce is, but on the commute to her daycare and then to work that’s all we listen to. And it’s awesome! It helps get my mind going, especially on Mondays, and opens doors to new ideas every day.
So in today’s quick post, I wanted to share my favorite podcasts that I listen to regularly. They range from simple living, to thought leaders, to fiction. If you get a chance, check them out! Also, I’m always on the hunt for new things to listen to so let me know your favorite shows in the comments below!
The Slow Home Podcast with Brooke McAlary: If you read my about page, you probably noticed Brooke’s name. She’s a brilliant author/blogger/podcast host from Australia. This is the podcast I cannot miss an episode of. Her dynamics with both her husband, Ben, and her guests are charming and so endearing. My number one “poggie.”
The Minimalists: Jason and Ryan were the ones who introduced me to minimalism and got me started down the rabbit hole. They are authors, mentors and all around good guys spreading a great message: “Love people. Use things. The opposite never works.”
The Rich Roll Podcast: Want to hear from amazing thinkers throughout the planet? This is the place to go. From pro athletes to yoga gurus, Rich interviews them all. From a crazy past of alcoholism to an amazing life of ultra races and plant-based living, Rich is a wealth of interesting information. Even if you’re not a plant-based person (which I am currently not) check this one out.
Cohesive Home: Melissa and Kate are awesome! They host a podcast which focuses on real-life slow living from the eyes of moms. I’ve really enjoyed listening to their perspective on things and how they implement slow living in their homes.
Myths and Legends and Fictional: And I’ve left my all time favorite for last. Jason Weiser is an incredible storyteller. The amount of time he spends on research alone is a mighty feat. I’ve always been a big fan of mythology but he takes it to a whole new level. In Myths and Legends, Jason explores traditional myths and folklore most of us think we know but shines new light on their origins which are often times a lot different than what we’ve come to know. He covers the globe from Greek Mythology to Japanese folklore. And now he’s started a second podcast called Fictional. It follows the same premise as Myths but he now covers fictional literature like Sherlock Holmes and Dante’s Inferno. There have only been a couple of episodes so far, but I’m really excited to see where it goes!
There are more podcasts in my playlist but I wanted to highlight my favorites for you. Again, please leave comments with your top podcasts and I’ll check them out!
