I was really excited and flattered because I was asked by my friend Patrick O’Keefe to be a guest on his podcast Community Signal this week. Community Signal is one of my favorite podcasts because it’s one of the only one’s that goes in depth into my field of Community Management every week.
Podcasts have exploded and there are so many out there now. I get overwhelmed when I search for new Podcasts to listen to. In addition to Community Signal, I wanted to suggest six other Podcast that I think are worth checking out.
- Magic Lessons with Elizabeth Gilbert: I can’t wait for season three to come out! I loved Ms. Gilbert’s book Big Magic and this podcast is an extension on her lessons in creativity and empowering others to conquer fear and live their passions.
- Her Money with Jean Chatzky: This podcast makes a topic that I usually find boring or stressful, personal finance engaging and approachable. It’s geared towards everyone regardless of where you are in your career if you have debt, and what your financial goals are.
- Call Your Girlfriend: The tagline is “A podcast for long-distance besties everywhere.” As someone who’s closest girlfriends live in a different state that is something I can relate to. It’s two besties who call each other each week to catch up on what’s happening in politics, pop culture, and everything in between. Hosts, Aminatou Sow and Ann Friedman are so engaging that you forget they’re not in the same room and that you aren’t there with them.
- NHS Choices This is a British Health site which may seem weird for me to suggest but of all of the running podcasts, I’ve tried this one is my favorite. If you’re thinking about trying Couch25K or any other running program, this is the one I’d recommend.
- Dear Sugar : Cohosted by authors Cheryl Strayed and Steve Almond I think this is the best podcast on relationships. I like it because they don’t limit their conversations around romantic relationships. Their subscribers write in with their struggles with parents, friends, and siblings in addition to romantic partners.
- RadioLab: When I get ready in the morning I’m typically either watching TED talks on Roku or listening to Radio Lab. I’ve been listening for years and it’s one of my favorite sources on science and obscure stories that I become riveted with.
