I have been slightly obsessed with 3 podcasts lately…okay…it’s full on obsession, let’s be real. I sometimes get tired of the same songs over and over on the radio and I don’t want to pay for satellite radio. Also, during the school year (I am a teacher), my ride home can be anywhere from 25 minutes to an hour, depending on traffic. This is my PERFECT time to listen to podcasts. **Warning/Disclaimer or Whatever You Want to Call It**…these 3 podcasts do use explicit language so they are not what you want to listen to when you’re picking the kids up from school or carpooling.
OMG…this is the best podcast ever!!! Jolenta Greenberg and Kristen Meinzer read different self-help books and then LIVE them for 2 weeks. The follow the rules, activities, mantras…whatever the book tells them to do. They then talk about their experiences and then recommend whether to read the book or not. The podcast is interspersed with conversations with each of their husbands along with other family members. As it states, it’s half self-help show, half comedy show. Some explicit language in this podcast. They also have a Facebook group that you can join called By The Book Community. ABSOLUTELY LOVE THIS PODCAST!!
This podcast is all about female empowerment. Their tagline is speaking our truth and daring to change. The two millennials who host the show are Allie Van Fossen and Carly Talbot. Even though they are young, they have old souls and they talk about issues and problems that women of various age groups can relate to. This podcast has a lot of explicit language so if that sort of thing bothers you, I’m giving you fair warning. Allie has an Facebook group called Live Your Journey and it is wonderful, especially if you are a yogi, like daily inspiration, enjoy meditation, etc. It is an extremely supportive and welcoming group.
This is a podcast hosted by Andrea Owen. She is a life coach and she discusses many issues and self-help strategies that women of many ages face. This podcast can also have its fair share of explicit language. Andrea often has guests on the podcast that talk about different areas, such as therapy, finances, books they’ve written, etc. She also offers her life coach services if you are on the lookout for one. When you see her picture, you may think…how can this beautiful blond know anything about what I’ve gone through in my life? She looks like she has it all together and then some. Actually, she has had a pretty tough life, which makes her more relatable and she really doesn’t take herself too seriously. I really like her:)
