I was never really a podcast girl because I avoid being in the car for long periods of time. But now I think it was partly because I never found one that really stuck with me! In the last month, I’ve been addicted to a certain few and will pop them on even when I’m only in the car for 15 minutes at a time. If you know me in real life, you know I’m constantly trying to learn as much as I can, so if I’m being forced to drive without texting and literally can’t do anything but drive, I gotta listen/learn as much as I can! These are my top picks for podcasts that motivate, inspire and educate.
Getting Curious with Jonathan van Ness
This should be a no brainer for all of you Queer Eye fans (and who isn’t?). I relate a lot to Jonathan’s curiosity and I love that each episode is about something completely different, yet completely interesting. It’s very rare that I get bored with one of these episodes because JVN’s personality is just so lovable. My favorite episodes are the ones that he has the other Queer Eye castmates on!
What We Said with Jaci Marie and Chelsey Jade
If you’re the type of person who likes to check in on your friends during long car rides, you’ll love listening to these girls. I honestly feel like I’m just chatting with friends when I listen. The podcast isn’t frou frou or fancy and it’s very down to Earth. Simply just girls talking about interesting topics and sharing their opinions on hot topics! I’ve followed Jaci Marie’s YouTube channel and Instagram for awhile but I really love listening to this side of her with her best friend.
Goal Digger Podcast with Jenna Kutcher
This is THE most informative, inspirational podcast I listen to. It’s an incredibly helpful resource for blogging and small business marketing while also being incredibly motivational. This is the podcast that jump started my podcast love and it’s the OG I always turn to first. A lot of the reasons I’ve been so inspired to blog and do better on Instagram lately is because of the inspiration I get from this podcast. Jenna is so positive and I love that she openly shares the wealth of knowledge with everyone, for free!
Influencer Podcast with Julie Solomon
I also found the Influencer Podcast after realizing how much I loved the Goal Digger Podcast. The Influencer Podcast is similar in that it features tips and tricks to dealing with social media and increasing your success on multiple platforms. My favorite episodes though are the ones that feature other bloggers. I just love getting different perspectives and hearing success stories! They always motivate me and have introduced me to new people to follow in the process.
I’ve also really enjoyed listening to true crime podcasts in the past. A few of my other favorite podcasts I’ve finished or pick up every once in awhile in order of how much I enjoy them are:
- Up & Vanished (need to start the newer season!)
- Off the Vine with Kaitlyn Bristowe (I don’t watch the Bachelor, but I love her)
- Missing Richard Simmons
- My Favorite Murder
