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.

This American Life-forever one of my favorites

Serial-seriously, please hurry because my life has been forever changed by this podcast

Radiolab-science meets culture

Planet Money-economic talk makes me want to scratch my eyes out, this is totally different

Joy the Baker-get ready to laugh your ass off and then hope they will just be your friends for god sake

Radio Diaries-real people talk

After the Jump-Grace Bonney interviews—love!

Elise Gets Crafty-interviews with creative people

Love & Radio-Real people, real talk

Creative Start-weekly interviews with creative entrepreneurs

Invisibilia-all about invisible forces that control human behavior

AIM with Kari Chapin-all about running a business

Being Boss-a podcast for creative entrepreneurs

I mean, there are even more, but these are my constant. What are some podcasts that you listen to?
