OK, I know. I’m late.
Podcasts are a thing and they’ve been a thing for a while now.
I’m not sure why, but I’ve always been a little resistant to Podcasts and thus, I was late to join the party.
I guess it’s because I’m a reader and writer before anything and the thought of just sitting there and listening to someone speaking slowly about a certain topic always seemed to give me some anxiety. With reading and writing I’ve always felt as though I have the control to turn the page or change the topic, etc.
What if I got bored?
What if I couldn’t make time to listen?
What if I didn’t understand what they were saying?
These were some of the questions swirling around my brain – that is, until I realized how game changing they can actually be.
And when I realized you could speed up the pace of each podcast to 1.5x or even 2x?!
At first, my podcast playlist consisted of a lot of self-help and news titles, until it dawned on me that I should also be using it to boost my professional development.
And I’m not even going to lie – trying to find a hip, useful and knowledgeable career podcast for someone like me – an urban professional who gets bored easily and also likes to be entertained – was hard as hell.
I kept finding podcasts that were about pop culture and celebrity gossip – and while that’s all good in moderation (I’m OBSESSED with The Read) solely listening to these types of podcasts wasn’t going to help my balance, my growth or my coins…just saying.
So, here’s a list of the top 11 podcasts that will completely change the game and transform the way you work (and therefore, the way you live).

Do you listen to any of them?
Drop me a note in the comments and let me know what you think or if I’m missing any. Even though my un-listened to list is out of control right now, I’m not afraid to add some more!
