The Confused Millennial Podcast

After you read my favorite podcasts for 20 somethings & the confused millennials at heart, make sure to check out this post of her's on her 4 favorite podcasts for heart-centered entrepreneurs!

How I Built This with Guy Raz

This was the first podcast I ever started listening to regularly. Guy Raz could read me the phone book and my ears would be happy. Aside from him having the best radio voice ever, he always has the most amazing guests on. The interviews are always packed with relatable takeaways, tons of nuggets of wisdom, and loads of inspiration for entrepreneurs. Listen here.

That's So Retrograde

This was the second podcast that drew me into this whole podcasting world. The girls from TSR are engaging, funny, and you'll basically want to be their new BFF. They have a wide variety of guests, but all under the “wellness” umbrella.

My favorite episodes: Manifest Guestiny with Lacy Phillips, Tantric Numerology with Remington Donovoan, and of course, Shaman Durek ep 1 and 2.

The Balanced Blonde Podcast

If you've been a reader of mine for a while, you know Jordan was a huge source of courage for me to launch TCM! Her podcast focuses on health, wellness, and all things woo-woo. She has some really amazing guests that have led to some of the most beautiful moments I've had this past year, from applying to shaman school, meeting Shaman Durek, and so much more! My personal favorite episodes of hers are always the out there “woo-woo” one's particularly these: Jenna Zoe, Biet Simkin Shaman Durek, all things crystals with Energy Muse,  and sooo many more! Listen here.

As Told By Nomads

Tayo Rockson is the host, and this was actually the first podcast I was ever a guest on over two years ago now (listen to it here!!)! Plus, Tayo is literally one of my favorite people on this planet! He's unbelievably inspiring, down to earth, has a clear message, and honestly just has the most infectious energy! He's been podcasting for a really long time (like way before it became super trendy) and has had SUCH a diverse range of guests. Listen here.

Your Own Magic

AHH this is – as the name would infer – pure magic! Allie and Raquelle are fantastic co-hosts and I just love their ethereal vibe. I have a lot of similar views/practices as them, so it basically feels like they are my long lost friends that I've never met and I love it! They do have guests on, but generally my favorite episodes are just the two of them talking. There have been a couple of guests I've loved which have been (of course) Shaman Durek and a psychic medium.

Ancient Wisdom Today

Is Shaman Durek's podcast! Before he launched the podcast, I was actually recording a lot of his Insta-lives on my laptop to go back and re-listen too, so I love that I can subscribe and reference his empowering words whenever I want now! Listen here.

The Skinny Confidential Him & Her

Honestly, TSC is SUCH a case study for me! Her business acumen astounds me and I am always dissecting the strategy in EVERYTHING she does (shout out to Katherine from Slightly Savvy (ep 4 of TCM podcast!) for answering all my questions on timelines of TSC's brand development). Lauryn and her husband host the podcast and have regular guests on who are all experts.

It's generally a pretty interesting show and the things that end up sparking inspiration for me are always really bizarre. For instance, Michael was talking about the history of toothpaste and the positive rewards system the creators built in (minty fresh breath) which actually is what led me to the idea of doing regular weekly giveaways on my Instagram. I can't direct you to a particular “favorite” episode, since I don't listen to all of them, and really will just choose one at random to have on in the background while cooking. Check it out here.

Armchair Expert with Dax Shepard

AH I've always loved Dax! And I love his podcast! It's not justtt because he's had some of my all-time favorite guests on in his first 10 episodes (seriously, Ellen Degeneres, Zach Braff, Lauren Graham, Kristen Bell, and Ashton Kutcher?!? UGH) It's also because it's such a personal look into these people's lives. You know, they all play so many different roles in the entertainment world, but it's fascinating to see what makes them into the people they truly are unscripted. Plus listening to Dax's life is always just SO relatable to me. Check it out here.

Masters of Scale with Reid Hoffman

Hoffman chats with famous founders of some of the world's largest companies! Somewhat similar to Guy Raz, there's just tons of nuggets of wisdom, inspiration, and lots to learn from each interview with insanely successful people! Personally, I LOVE the Sara Blakely episode on Spanx.


In the last year I've explored loads more podcasts and wanted to add a few to the list:

Swipe Up

Hosted by Katherine from Slightly Savvy. She covers all things related to growing your digital business today with a heavy focus on influencer marketing and organization. Whether you're wondering how people make money on Instagram, a creative entrepreneur, or a brand, there will definitely be loads of tidbits for you to take away! Listen here.

Don't Keep Your Day Job

Hosted by Cathy Heller, this podcast is a great mix of inspiring guests, solo episodes, and coaching sessions with listeners! It comes out twice a week and is really designed to help you figure out your greatest passion and turn that into a full-time profitable career. Check it out here.

Growth Now Movement

Hosted by Justin Schenck, it comes out twice a week. One episode is a longer guest/interview format, and the other is a quick kick in the butt of motivation and inspiration. This podcast will definitely inspire you to overcome obstacles and reach your goals. I was also a guest on this one, listen here (we talk about finding your passion and learning to live it each day)
