7 Podcasts I’m Listening To Right Now

August 2, 2016

If you’re looking to improve your wellness and up your business, these 7 top wellness and business podcasts will help motivate you to make big changes in your life!

If I could somehow figure how to either a) clone myself or b) add an extra 50 hours to a day, I would 100% start a podcast. I am totally and completely podcast obsessed. I fall into the “pre-Serial” podcast crew who’s been listening to podcasts before Adnand Sayed stole our hearts (but really…did he do it?!), which means I’ve amassed quite a list of podcasts I follow. And even though I would absolutely love to have a THM podcast, I’m probably better off just staying a loyal listener.

If you're looking to improve your wellness and up your business, these top wellness and business podcasts will help motivate you to make big changes.

I got into podcasts when I was living in NYC and had the long commute on the A train up to Washington Heights from Chelsea. Podcasts entertained me, they educated me and they only made me miss my stop twice after falling asleep while listening. These amazing hosts and storytellers have been with me through moves, flights, dog walks, road trips and long days in the kitchen. Many of them feel like my friends even if most of them don’t know I exist…

My list of must-listen to podcasts has changed over the years as my interest and passions have changed. Once full of nutrition podcasts, I eventually starting using meditation podcasts to keep me from jumping off the train during my commute to work in Toronto. These days my list is full of wellness, self-development and business podcasts with some hilarious and entertaining ones thrown in for fun.

As I begin to delve into other topics I’m passionate about, I thought it would but fun to share with you some of the podcasts I’m listening to right now. I always love getting recommendations for podcasts so I’m hopefully you can find some new ones from this list as well!

Pop in those earbuds and open your podcast app. Here are my top wellness and business podcasts I’m loving.

Let It Out with Katie Dalebout

Katie is actually a dear from of mine, whose podcast I’ve been listening to for a few years now. I love the diverse range of topics she talks about with her interviewees (generally under the umbrella of wellness) and explores with her listeners. I feel like I’m constantly in a state of exploration and I know without fail I will learn something new from Katie and her guests when I turn on “Let it Out”. It also helps that she is the most genuine person I know.

The Lively Show

The Lively Show also explores health and wellness but more within the business sphere. She interviews successful entrepreneurs and digital businesses that are inspiring and encouraging wellness or an innovative perspective within their domains. She covers everything from self-worth, productivity, and relationships and anything in between. She’s currently taking a few months off to travel through Europe and has been sharing her journey on the podcast. One of my favorites to tune into!

The One Part Plant Podcast

While we’re on the topic of wellness podcasts, I had to mention the OPP podcast with Jessica Mernand. Jessica is a blogger who interviews other bloggers, online influencers and authors on health and wellness. What I love most are her mini podcasts called “the things that freaked my week” where she brings on a guest blogger and they talk about awesome things happening in the world. There are times when I can feel pretty bummed out about things that are happening around the globe, but I love knowing I can turn on the OPP podcast and it will without fail make me think about the positive.

Startup

Start-up came out around the same time as Serial and quickly became a podcast sensation. For good reason too because it is probably the best produced podcast out there. The content focuses on chronicling the starting of a business. The first season is all about starting a podcasting business and then it changes from season to season. Admittedly, I was late to the game in terms of listening but I’m so happy I finally found the time. If you’re interested in business and the work that goes in to building one, this podcast is for you.

Online Marketing Made Easy with Amy Porterfield

Also for my business junkies out there, if you love marketing, business tips and building a profitable business, you will love Amy Porterfield. I listen to a lot of business podcasts (feel free to comment below if you want to hear more of them), but I find that Online Marketing Made Easy is by far the most approachable and relevant. Things like building your email list, apps for productivity and goal setting that will leave you motivated and excited, not confused and overwhelmed.

Girlboss Radio

Sophia Amoruso is the power force behind Nasty Gal clothing and her best-selling book, “Girl Boss”. She interviews badass female entrepreneurs about anything and everything. If I’m being totally honest, I don’t love the first 20 minutes where she’s chatting with her friend, so sometimes I skip right to the interview but maybe you’ll like it. It’s cool to hear the journeys of various women in business doing kick-ass things.

Blissful Bites Podcast

This podcast generally focuses on business within the food sector. From bloggers to product developers and start-up food brands, Nicole Culver asks the questions you’ve been dying to hear the answer to from the bloggers and businesses whose brains you’d like to pick. If you’re interested, I stopped by the Blissful Bites podcast and answered all your questions on how to quit your full-time job to run a blog. You can listen to it HERE.

If you're looking to improve your wellness and up your business, these top wellness and business podcasts will help motivate you to make big changes.

And while we’re on the topic of podcasts, I wanted to share with you guys that my friend Katie from Let it Out Podcast will be in Toronto filming a LIVE podcast recording of her show. Yours truly will be in the hot seat answering all of her questions and I would LOVE for you to be there! My friend Nikky from Health Nut Nutrition (who you may remember from Avocado Week) will also be there! You are all welcome to join in on the fun so we can meet, podcast and have some fun all for a good cause.

    I found out about Blissful Bites from another blogger and really enjoyed listening to some of the interviews! I didn’t know you were also featured on there. I’ll be sure to check it out along with Girl Boss. I loved the book so I can only imagine how great the podcast is!

Some of my fave podcasts are Let it Out with Katie Dalebout, The Skinny Confidential Him and Her Podcast, Ladies Who Lunch, Balanced Bites, Ladygang, Mind Body Musings with Maddy Moon, The Bitch Bible, and Earn Your Happy Podcast with Lori Harder!

    OMG Davida, I didn’t know you lived in Washington Heights!! I grew up there and just recently moved out of the neighborhood! So crazy! I recently became obsessed with podcasts but I am loving Radio Cherry Bombe, Black Girls In Om, and Dean & Deluca’s Prince Street.
