Hidden Brain– The calming voice of host Shankar Vedantam takes a social science perspective of the human condition through stories and research. I believe staying curious makes us resilient. I was an advertising major and sociology minor at University, so that’s probably why I like this podcast. The variety of episodes, research and interesting human interest keeps me coming back.
Chase Jarvis Show – The host Chase Jarvis lives in Seattle. He has a California quality that I can relate to as that’s where I grew up. He has amazing guests on his show and a common thread of every episode is encouraging people to find their passion.
Hello Monday– I am not sure how I found this podcast, but I am glad I did. Don’t let that this podcast is produced by LinkedIn fool you to think it’s a commercial in any way. I love the authentic nature the host Jessi Hempel brings to every conversation. about the changing face of leadership and the workplace. My Mondays are a whole lot better having her in my ears.
Marie Forleo — This woman is a top notch leadership business coach. She has interesting guests who share everything from being a better communicator to tackling fear, each episode taking on the tone of her book, “Everything is Figureoutable”. I feel recharged and ready to go after I have listened to an episode.
Cy to Eye– This podcast is targeted to leaders working in art nonprofits. I find learning about different nonprofit industries gives me a deeper connection to my work. I find the episodes are applicable across any nonprofit, it’s how the application is being shared, which helps me grow in so many ways.
