MY FAVORITE PODCASTS
Im so into podcasts right now. In the times where everyone has a smartphone and a laptop, podcasts are flourishing. You can find a podcasts for just about everything these days right down to where is Richard Simmons has been hiding. I started listening to podcasts a few years back and have grown to listen to some on a weekly basis. I throw my headphones in and refresh the feed on my iPhone during my commute to work and enjoy a variety of podcasts from chefs, business owners and I even get in some church when I need it. Here are just a few of my favorite podcasts.
Eater Upsell - being in the restaurant industry I read Eater.com everyday to keep up with the ever changing restaurant scene. I started listening to their weekly podcast with chef's, restauranteurs and popular food people and instantly became a regular listener. I had lost the food/restaurant bug for a while but listening to the Eater Upsell podcast makes me excited for the restaurant industry again. Check out some of my favorite interviews with Chef Wolfgang Puck, Chef Mario Batali, Chef JJ Johnson and more.
The Read - I came across The Read with Kid Fury and Crissle a few years ago via a recommendation from a friend and have been an avid listener ever since. With everything ranging from pop culture, politics and personal "reads" Kid Fury and Crissle talk about everything we are thinking in our heads. I have to be conscious of laughing out loud whenever I listen to The Read while on my commute but I never miss a episode. Whenever I'm having a bad week, The Read always provides me with a extremely good laugh.
Myleik Teele - I started following Myleik Teele, the founder and CEO of Curlbox a few years back on social media. I love how open she is about working hard, owning a successful company and staying fabulous in the midst of it all. I started listening to her podcast and Im HOOKED on the candid advice she gives her listeners. From love to business to handling your finances and even going to therapy, Myleik will help get your life together in a fabulous way.
Joel Osteen & Creflo Dollar - Everyone needs the word and some uplifting messages. Creflo Dollar and Joel Osteen are both of my favorite pastors and I listen to them when I need to get centered. One of Creflo Dollar's podcasts, "Defeating Emotional Turmoil" even helped me when my father passed unexpectedly a few years ago. Along with TD Jakes, these 3 pastors podcasts put my mind in focus whenever I need to be leveled out and reassured in my faith.
Brutally Honest - Karlie Hustle is the epitome of dope. I had her on the blog a few years ago and Im still obsessed to this day. Karlie had this brilliant idea to create a podcast talking about a range of issues including becoming a mom in the workplace, daddy issues and white privilege all in 20 minutes. Its raw, its straight from the hip and honestly its exactly what we are all thinking and discussing.
