There’s a gargantuan amount of podcasts available — 750,000 worth to be exact — at the tap of a finger. Whether you’re into art, business, even facts, it can be a little overwhelming when trying to find something new to listen to. If that wasn’t enough, trying to figure which of those podcasts is actually worth listening to would be some kind of task.
It’s time to update your library and while you could dabble in the “You Might Also Like” section of your podcast app or go by word of mouth, it would take listening to know if they are a hit or miss. But, fret not for I’ve made a lineup of a few podcasts that you can listen to while sifting through emails or lounging at the beach.
I don’t know about other folks, but I found a real sisterhood with this podcast.

If you need a solid dose of girl power, perk your ears for this pod.

Every few episodes, I’m always saving their recommendations on good books, and useful tools to make my work life/space more efficient.
The Creative Pep Talk is basically inspiration through your headphones. Expect deep dives into which paintbrush might make a better stroke on canvas or what makes a good story, really good. No matter if you need life advice or just want to celebrate art, the solution is right here in this pod.
In each episode, Conan interviews some of the people he enjoys the most, inducing some celebrity giants and lesser-known up and coming talent. While you may laugh more times than you can count on one hand, the comedian and entrepreneur takes a real-talk approach that may surprise and lead you to think deeply. Woot, woot for Team Coco — if you know, you know.
