Podcast Roundup: My Current Favorites


April 30, 2020

I have become quite the podcast junkie over the past couple of years. Considering I pretty much listen to music for a living, it’s nice to get lost in something other than the Top 40 Hits on my commute to and from work. As a gal continuously looking to grow personally and professionally, I have found the podcasting realm to be the perfect medium for me to learn more, dive deeper or (more often than not) distract me from mundane day-to-day activities (ie: folding laundry and unloading the dishwasher).

If you, like myself have found yourself on the couch, or maybe out on a run/walk looking for something to indulge your ears in, I have the perfect list for you! I put together a list of my most-listened to podcasts and a few of my favorite episodes. Enjoy.

The Goal Digger Podcast {Business | Personal Development}

Jenna Kutcher is an online-marketing expert and will teach you how to make a living doing what you love. Her podcast covers all things business, body love and personal development. Her platform focuses on women in the industry that have upscaled their life and journey that got them there. This is my go-to business podcast! Jenna knows her stuff and I get excited to virtually pick a piece of her brain every time I plug into another episode.

Crime Junkie {True Crime}

If you’re not a self-proclaimed crime enthusiast like myself then you can close this page and go listen to some highly informative, much less graphic content. But if you’re into binge-worthy true crime, this is the podcast for you! I’ll refrain from listing my favorite episodes for fear of being labeled something absurd and let you have a taste for yourself. The storytelling is straightforward and free of rabbit holes so the cases stay suspenseful and are easy to follow. 

What’s your favorite podcast to listen to!? I’d love to know in the comments below.

XX, Paige
