4 Podcasts You Should Listen To



I read somewhere that the average American listens to over two hours worth of radio each day. I don't know about you, but I would way rather be learning something during that time instead of listening to three different radio stations play the same ten songs on repeat. Podcasts are such a great way to learn something new and listening to podcasts is a lot more productive than listening to the radio (unless it's NPR or something). Here are four of the podcasts I've been listening to the most lately. 

1) That's So Retrograde
This is my new podcast addiction! It is a wellness podcast where each week Elizabeth Knott and Stephanie Simbari interview wellness gurus to learn about their practices. They've had everyone on the show from Ashley Tisdale to Sarah Silverman and Amanda Chantal Bacon. If you're at all interested in new wellness practices such as juicing, meditation, cleansing, then this is a good place to start. 

2) Ladies Who Lunch
This podcast is the brainchild of two youtubers, Ingrid Nilsen and Cat Valdes. Ladies Who Lunch is different from the other podcasts because there's no set theme. Each week covers a different topic relating to life with the two co-hosts sharing their experiences on the topic. This podcasts really just feels like girl talk and while it's definitely not educational on the same level as the other three, you still walk away learning something new. 

3) The Minimalists Podcasts
This podcast is all about minimalism. I will admit, of the four listed, this is the podcast that I listen to the least because I found that it gets a bit repetitive. A lot of the episodes are question and answer format where Joshua Fields Milburn and Ryan Nicodemus answer questions about how to lead a more minimal life. If you're new in to minimalism or interested in the theory behind it, this is a good listen. 

4) Open Sky Fitness
This podcasts does all things fitness and diet related. Some podcast episodes are interviews with people in the field while others are question and answer. The thing about this podcast is that unless you're really into fitness, you'll find some episodes don't resonate as much as others. For me, I only listen to the episodes that sound interesting to me because I don't think it's a good use of time to learn about crossfit when that's just something that I'm not interested in. 

Let me know in the comments what podcasts you like to listen to and if you have any recommendations for me! I'd also like to mention that I enjoy the AOL Build Series podcasts for more pop culture related interviews and that the Beta Sandwich podcast (while not currently producing new episodes) was my favorite for science news.
