My last favorite podcasts post dates back to 2018. So I thought it’s time to share some new recent favorites with you.
They are ideal for when you have a some time to spare, while driving to work, while waiting at the doctors or the bus stop.
They are a great learning opportunity, can teach you about new things, can help you understand certain topics, give you tips and tricks or simply tell a wonderful short story.
Also, if you have any podcasts to share, please do so in the comments below!
I listen to the below podcasts via the Podcast app from Apple. You can find it on the app store.
I am sure these podcasts are available elsewhere. There are apps for Androids as well as podcast websites.
I’m sure you will find the below in your preferred app or site.
If you don’t know Brené Brown yet, I suggest you start with her Ted Talks on vulnerability and shame.
In her Unlocking Us podcast she has conversations that unlock the deeply human part of who we are, so that we can live, love, parent, and lead with more courage and heart.
In her other podcast, she has conversations with change-catalysts, culture-shifters and more than a few troublemakers who are innovating, creating, and daring to lead.
Live Awake podcast – episode: Permission to living your truth out loud
The Live Awake podcast helps bring you back to your grounded center through reflection and guided meditation.
This episode in particular spoke to me because it is about taking small steps toward weaving more truth into all the places we are not living it already. We learn the importance of taking care of the peace within, and discover the value of becoming more whole in being and life.
My friend Laura (the one on the right in the picture), and her friend Nikki have recently launched the Startist Society, a podcast and community inspiring you to stop getting in your own way and start building an art biz and life that you love.
They are artists who believe strongly in the power of community, accountability, following your intuition, taking small actionable steps, and breaking down the barriers of fear and procrastination that keep you stuck.
Their weekly episodes are great for us creatives out here!
My first coach Christine Kane, brings unconventional business advice for highly creative, secretly sensitive and wildly ambitious entrepreneurs. And her podcast is valuable even if you’re note an entrepreneur. Topics range from procrastination, realignment, making decisions, boundaries etc and those are oh so useful in life as well as in business. She has the talent to put concepts into words so that you ‘get it’. She helped me over the years to change the HOW I do things, not the WHAT. So go on, have a listen!

Step into iconic couples therapist Esther Perel’s office and listen as real couples anonymously bare the raw, intimate, and profound details of their story. From infidelity, to sexlessness, to loss, it’s a space for people to be heard and understood. It’s also a place for us to listen and feel empowered in our own relationships. So.. where should we begin?
Esther also has a new podcast called ‘How’s work?‘ where she brings new perspective to the invisible forces that shape workplace connections, conflict and dynamics through one-time therapy sessions with coworkers, cofounders and colleagues — touching every work environment from start-ups and family businesses to corporations and service industries.
Sabrina Ward Harrison is an artist, creator and writer and now also podcast maker about living life as a creative person. From being weird, to cozy hard, from loving the drama to being brave, she and her guests cover many diverse, creative and artistic topics.

Call Your Girlfriend is a podcast for long-distance besties everywhere. Every week, Aminatou and Ann call each other to discuss the intricacies of pop culture and the latest in politics. Since launching in 2014, they’ve built an audience of hundreds of thousands of listeners per episode. They’re highbrow and lowbrow, fiercely opinionated, and not afraid to realtalk each other about everything from menstrual cycles and body shaming to the Cheeto in Chief and workplace drama. They highlight women who are agents, creators, movers, and shakers who have smart, interesting things to say. They also care deeply about the lived experiences of non-famous women who are just trying to get through the week. They’re here for every facet of women’s humanity.
I came across Darin Olien when I watch him co-host with Zac Efron on the widely popular Netflix docu-series called “Down to Earth with Zac Efron” and and of course had to find out more about this superfoods guru. That’s when I found his #1 Health & Wellness podcast The Darin Olien Show.
On every episode of The Darin Olien Show, after a thrilling conversation with an amazing guest, he dedicates some time to dig into some uncomfortable truth. He gets into society’s Fatal Conveniences™, the things we may be doing because the world we live in makes us believe we have to. These things save us time and trick us into thinking they’re actually good for us. But it’s those same things that are breaking down our health, and the health of the environment around us.
Heather Chauvin was dying to be a good mother. Literally. She tried desperately to make sure her kids were happy and kept telling herself, “It’s only a phase – this will get better with time,” all while continuing to pour from an empty cup at the expense of herself. The internal pressure she felt spilled out into her whole life. she was a tense and exhausted mom, partner, businesswoman, and friend. In the end, spinning my wheels almost killed her. A year after her youngest son was born she was diagnosed with stage 4 cancer, and the illusion of control she held so tightly to came crashing down.
She consciously began to reparent herself and say no to her old excuses. What happened next blew her away.
Her podcast is about conscious parenting for the ambitious, overwhelmed woman who dreams of MORE.
I discovered The Goop through their Netflix Series The Goop Lab with Gwyneth Paltrow, which I found fascinating.
In her Podcast, Gwyneth Paltrow and Elise Loehnen take their questioning further as they chat with leading thinkers, culture changers, and industry disruptors about shifting old paradigms and starting new conversations.
