recent podcast favorites

October 16, 2014

Over a year ago I wrote about some of my favorite podcasts. Since then I’ve added a bunch more to my listening queue and wanted to share some new favorites.

From the original list, I still listen to (and love):

>Joy the Baker
>Book Riot
>The Art of Simple (formerly Simple Mom)

Now some recent favorites:

>Elise Gets Crafty: One of my favorite bloggers started a weekly podcast about blogging, small business, inspiration, motivation, and creativity. Even if you don’t have a blog or small business, it’s pretty interesting to hear how all that works.

>Books on the Nightstand: This is the personal project of two employees of Random House so they have plenty of insider knowledge. They usually talk about one or two subjects related to books & publishing, and then each recommend a book.

>How They Blog: As I keep trying to improve my own blog, I’m seeking out some resources and this podcast has been super helpful and inspiring.

>One Bad Mother: Disclaimer that there are lots of swears in this one, but the hosts are so dang funny and likable that I just know we would be friends in real life. They give updates from their lives, discuss a particular subject regarding motherhood, do genius/fails, and usually do an interview as well.

>Sarah R. Bagley: Sarah is a recovering perfectionist and interviews lots of interesting people about what living a B+ life means to them. Whenever I listen I’m always nodding along the entire time!

>The Lively Show: Jess is known for her work on living with intention and her podcast is full of inspiring interviews on everything from fashion to spirituality.

I don’t know if I have time for any more podcasts, but I’m always up for trying a new one! What are your favorites?

    Another Mother Runner is a good running-themed podcast. I also like the American Patchwork & Quilting podcast. Other than that, I listen to 4 of the 6 you listed here…so that’s 6 in all and I can barely keep up with them. If i picked up a new one, I’d have to drop one!

    Thanks for those recs, obviously we have similar taste so I will check them out for sure! The quilting one might go over my head (as does most of the content at the guild meetings, haha) but that’s how to learn, right?

    I’ve still yet to listen to a podcast; I’m not very hip…. (I still don’t have any music on my iPhone, I own CDs that i listen to in my car and I guess I’m old school. I suppose that’s ok!)

    From Kathleen:

    Totally fine! I feel uncool because I’ve had to come to grips with the fact that I’m not really a music person. I used to think I was, and sometimes it can really affect me, but I honestly hardly ever listen to it!

    From Sarah @ Beauty School Dropout:

    Wow, I don’t know how you listen to so many without a long commute! ;-) My current favorites are Pray As You Go and The Marriage Start-Up Podcast. I’m definitely checking out The Lively Show — that sounds right up my alley!

    I’m kind of behind on a lot of them, but my commute is 10-20 minutes and I usually listen both ways, so it ends up knocking them out. I also listen when I’m able to run outside, or doing housework. Somehow I sort of keep up!

    I hadn’t heard of the podcasts you mentioned, but they look awesome! Thanks!

    I subscribed to Inspired to Action and have started listening to a few! Most likely it will be included in my next round of podcast faves. :) Read Aloud Revival looks right up my alley, so thanks for that!

    I listen to Elise Gets Crafty sometimes and I’ve been meaning to try How They Blog. I just don’t seem to find the time to listen to podcasts very often!
