5 New to Me Podcasts that I Think You Will Love!

Blogging, Debt Repayment, Fitness

I’m a huge music fan, and listen to it basically all day long at work. I pay for the Spotify Premium plan so that I don’t have to hear the commercials. (They sucked me in with one of those “three months for only 99 cents” promos and I’ve never been able to go back!) But when I’m in the car, going for a run, or sometimes even when I’m cleaning my house, I listen to podcasts.

In April 2015, I told you guys about my four favorite podcasts for working out and commuting. The top two podcasts on that list, Listen Money Matters and Around the Table are still my two absolute favorites and I listen to them all the time. I still like Joyce Meyer’s and the Ted Talks’ podcasts, but they update so frequently that it overwhelms me. I had to unsubscribe from both of them.

I didn’t realize it had been so long since I shared my favorite podcasts with you guys! So today seemed like a great day for that.

5 Podcasts I think You will Love - Perfect for bloggers, debt repayment and making your commute and run go by faster!

Being Boss

site // subscribe with iTunes // Facebook group

I can’t believe I’ve never told you guys about Being Boss! I’ve been subscribed to this Podcast for over a year. I love it! It was the first “boss” titled business I’ve come across. I don’t sign up for new things called “boss [anything],” because I’m so sick of it. But Emily and Kathleen are true Bosses, who are out to build everyone else up, too. Being Boss has an eclectic set of topics and guests. I listened to one of my favorite episodes last summer. It was about roles and communication with your business partner. If you’ve ever considered going into business with a friend or colleague, or you’re in a partnership now, check out that episode.

My favorite part about Being Boss is that episodes aren’t only about the technical aspects of certain types of businesses. Episodes discuss blogging, but also being a soloprenuer, an artist, a freelance writer, a business coach, and then also the heart-stuff. You’ll find really helpful episodes about getting through negative feedback, avoiding burnout, and a recent one that I loved, called F*ck Fear.

If you’re looking for guidance and two new friends, Being Boss is for you.

ProBlogger Podcast

site // subscribe with iTunes // Facebook group

I was really late to the ProBlogger train. I know he’s been blogging for roughly the same amount of time as I have, and he was making money well before most people did. But for some reason, I never got on board with his 30 Days to a Better blog e-book or other challenges. I regret that now!

Thankfully, on sort of a dare when someone asked what he wanted to do that year and he finally vocalized that he wanted to start a Podcast, he began recording episodes! I LOVE this Podcast. I listen to almost every single episode. Darren does a fantastic job giving the basics, but also sharing professional level tips that I had not considered trying myself. The only problem is that I listen to his episodes in the car a lot, and I can’t get to my computer and immediately start blogging! One episode I really liked was called 5 Tips from Full Time Bloggers, which was based on research from a survey Darren had done with professional bloggers.

If you’re ever in a rut, turn to the ProBlogger Podcast and soak it all up. You’ll be ready to start writing or making technical updates to your blog IMMEDIATELY.

Her Money Matters

site // subscribe with iTunes // Facebook group

Jen Hemphill is a money coach who talks about the real life impact our money mindset has on our life. She interviews incredibly inspiring experts and people with experience in tough money situations, but also shares episodes where it’s just her, discussing her real-life money goals, plans and pain points. Her Money Matters is the only Podcast that inspired me to go buy a book written by one of the guests. The Work Your Way to Wealth episode was chock full of useful information that I could understand even though I’m not a financial planner and I’ve made money mistakes.

The down-to-earth approach of this podcast makes it really easy to listen to and walk away feeling motivated to keep my financial goals. If you’re in need of a judgment free girlfriend to keep you on track with your short term and long term financial goals, subscribe to HMM now!

(As far as I know, Her Money Matters and Listen Money Matters are not affiliated in any way.)

Blog Fuel

site // subscribe with iTunes

There is so much wisdom and real life knowledge behind each episode of Blog Fuel that I feel like I’ve learned a ton every single time I listen. Kirsten and her guests can be pretty opinionated, and I don’t always agree with their hard stance on certain things, but I LOVE this podcast. More often than not, I’m thinking, “amen, sister!” while I’m driving along! I think it’s fantastic that no one holds back because you know you’re getting the honest truth about what she and her guests think about the world of blogging right now.

There was an episode recently about knowing whether or not to take a blog course and OMG you guys… it was fantastic. It was especially in my mind this weekend when I was going through the courses in the Genius Blogging Toolkit. That bundle was $97 and I’ve finished a couple of courses that made it totally worth the $97. This weekend, however, I took one of the ones that allegedly retails for $147. It hit several of the marks toward “don’t buy this course” that they discussed. It was about two years old (decades in blog years!) but hadn’t been updated; was full of information you could get for free anywhere; didn’t say it was a beginner course, but it absolutely was; each video was only about 5 minutes long; and outside of those videos, it had no new information, hand outs, guides or resources, except for an excel schedule on how they handled a certain part of their editorial calendar. It was basically just regurgitated information that you could find with a super simple google search. And people were paying nearly $150 for it?!

That Blog Fuel episode alone would have helped me make the determination that it was not the course for me. Because I already owned the course, I didn’t do much research into it. Afterward, I felt like I wasted an hour of my life (that’s how long it took for me to start and finish the course because nothing was new to me). There are other awesome episodes like myths that are going around, networking before blog conferences, and the truth bomb that: You are not Beyonce.

If you’re a new or experienced blogger, seriously check out the Blog Fuel Podcast.

Women Taking the Lead

site // subscribe with iTunes

The Women Taking the Lead Podcast with Jodi Flynn is very new to me. She was a Podcast Guest on Her Money Matters and I found her methods to beat FOMO super inspiring. I subscribed to her podcast right away. I’m so new to it that I don’t have any favorite episodes yet, but I’m sure I will!

If you’re into inspiring stories about women conquering life as a single gal, married woman, mom, business owner, side hustler or just all around extraordinary human, check out her podcast. You won’t be disappointed!

Do you subscribe to any of these podcasts already? Do you have any suggested alternatives for me to check out?!

    I have yet to start listening to podcasts. I don’t seem to have enough time to write my blog promote and learn all at once. When I do have time, I will keep these in mind.

      It’s good to make sure you don’t put yourself into information overload! There’s tons of info out there about blogging and it’s easy to get sucked into learning without doing. Good job keeping boundaries in your blogging process :)

    My husband loves podcasts. I haven’t quite got on board – maybe because I rarely have a chance to ride in the car by myself and I enjoy listening to music…but the ProBlogger one has my interest piqued

      Yea I definitely get most of my listening done in the car so it would be hard to listen to if I didn’t ride alone a lot. Could you listen while you’re doing household chores? I admit that without kids, I’m not super in tune with how moms get anything done for themselves!
