If you have not listened to podcasts before, go ahead and give it a try. Like me, it might become a positive part of your weekly routine.

Last week I talked about how awesome reading is and recommended a number of books I had read recently as “good reads.” I realized that this last year, however, I have also gotten into listening to podcasts and thought I should follow up my article about books with one about podcasts.

Until recently I had not engaged in listening to podcasts. Last year as we headed into multiple Covid lockdowns, I decided to start walking more. As this become more of a habit, I had a few colleagues talk about listening to podcasts while they walk, and so decided to give it a try. After a few tries I got hooked and was excited at this new way to learn and interact with the world while also out in nature getting some exercise.

Like last week I figured I should end this short article with some simple podcast recommendations. If you have not listened to podcasts before, go ahead and give it a try. Like me, it might become a positive part of your weekly routine. Here are some podcast that I subscribe and listen to:

  1. Your Undivided Attention: is a podcast that focuses on the media and technology and its impact on our lives.
  2. How To with Charles Duhigg: is a podcast that tries to answer how to questions, such as how to survive a shark attack, how to sleep better, how to write a book, how to stop procrastinating.
  3. Work Life with Adam Grant: is a podcast that focuses on how to make work better which is important as we spend 25% of our entire lives at work.
  4. The Knowledge Project: is a podcast about better thinking, problem-solving, and decision-making.
  5. The 5AM Miracle: is a podcast dedicated to dominating your day before breakfast.


I hope that you will enjoy podcasting as much as I have.
