I’m really into podcasts right now. I listen while I’m alone cooking dinner or folding clothes (the pseudo-downtime of a Mom). On days I don’t seem to have time to read, these help keep my brain happy:
The Fizzle Show
A “podcast for creative entrepreneurs and honest business builders”, this is basically three smart dudes shooting the shit for an hour. It may not seem like it at first, but there is a lot of great business information packed into each episode. This Q&A episode has good insights into making the most of your job early on.
This newish podcast from two Lady Bosses is also targeted at creative entrepreneurs. I like the conversational style and insight into how these business owners get it all done. This episode offers some nice perspective on being a working Mom.
Books on the Nightstand
This weekly podcast is a great source of print and audiobook recommendations, as well as “a behind-the-scenes look at the world of books, bookstores and publishing”. I usually add at least one book to my reading list after each episode. This episode is particularly interesting if you’re curious about a career in publishing.
The Portfolio Life
This is “the show that helps you pursue work that matters, make a difference with your art and discover your true voice.” Primarily focused on writing, this podcast explores how we shift from having a single career to creating body of work. This interview with Seth Godin is good.
How about you? What are you listening to these days?
P.S. Here are three Books on the Nightstand recommendations that I’ve read recently and thought were excellent:
