My favorite podcasts as of late

2743534799_86bcea8475_o copyI wrote a post a while back about podcasts and how important they are to me throughout the day and since then, podcasts have taken over the world. Okay, I’m exaggerating a bit, but the popularity of podcasting has really taken off and now so many of my favorite bloggers are also podcasting – which makes me happy dance all the way to the studio everyday. I follow blogs because they entertain me, they educate me, they help me learn about trends and popular ideas, they show me an “insiders view” into some of my small business idols and I learn so SO much as a business owner. Now I get to actually listen to their stories, their hurtles and struggles, their accomplishments, their days and their goals. It’s a whole new world and I love it. Recently, I’ve heard rumors and mumbles that blogs are going to be a thing of the past and podcasts are the new, up and coming thing, but I hope not. I think there is a place for both of these in the world. Here are a few of my favorite podcasts that I listen to all the time and “patiently” wait for a new episode to go live.
