I became quite addicted to podcasts recently so I wanted to share some of my 2016 favourites. I thought about doing it thematically but it might be more useful to divide them into “when to listen”, since that is how I organize them!
So, let’s start with my favourite podcasts for longer runs.
I love these four as they tend to talk about empowered people & overcoming challenges for more then an hour.
Is hard to stop running when a dude is telling a story of how he almost lost his hand in the Everest…
1. Rich Roll – Rich has a really inspiring story himself. He also has a really calm and clear voice and interviews all sorts of crazy, interesting, limitless people such as #ShalaneFlanagan, #ColinO’Brady and #AnthonyErvin. Rich’s podcast is my number 1 choice for longer runs because they are often around 2 hours, so its great company!
2. #GirlBoss Radio – on a different spectrum but as inspiring Sophia Amoruso (the #NastyGal legend) and the women she interviews are kick-ass entrepreneurs and inspiring. My favourite by far was the interview with #ClassPass founder Payal Kadakia. Sophia is funny and brutally honest so it makes for good company,. They are not as long so I recommended adding 2-3 episodes on an “up next” loop.
3. No Meat Athlete – similar in style to Rich’s, this is more focused on running and vegan life but with some really cool guests as well such as the inspiring #BaggioHusidic and #RobertCheeke . The hosts Matt and Doug sound like your old friends chatting over beer so it makes for a long but gentle run. Easy going, informative and super informal.
4. Real Talk Radio – These episodes are also extra long so if you need to do 18-21km (and you are slow like me) this is a good option. Nicole had an alcohol abuse problem; she quit drinking and started running on the same day. She talks A LOT (I feel like she is the female version of No Meat Athlete haha). And sounds super nice. Her interviews are quite eclectic but include #LacyDavis, #SarahRobinson and #LaurenFleshman.
Which ones are your favourites?
