Who isn’t on the hunt for the best motivating podcasts?! Podcasts have added so much value to my life and they definitely are a part of my regular routine.
I listen to podcasts…
when I’m in the car
while I clean up my house
as I’m doing laundry + folding
when I get ready in the morning
as I walk out of the gym
on walks/during cardio
at my desk when I need a spark of creativity
Podcasts are such a part of my day-to-day routine that I even have specific ones I listen to as certain times depending on the mood I am trying to elicit. I’ll save that for an entire other blog post!
Today, I want to share the best podcasts to motivate you to reach new heights. Years ago, you had to pay $10,000+ to listen to some of the top personal development leaders speak and now, you can listen to them for free thanks to podcasts.
Here is what I am listening to right now. I would also love to read your suggestions, so please comment those below!
I cannot believe I didn’t discover this gem of a podcast sooner. This podcast features hosts Gweneth Paltrow who you probably know is about all things health and wellness as well as Elyse Lunan. They have an amazing interview style and I am so intrigued by their guests who range from highly insightful medical doctors to relationship experts and professional chefs.
Favorite Episode: What Our Anxiety Is Telling Us
This podcast has been a favorite for a very long time and if you follow me on social media, you’ve likely seen me share some of these. Ed Mylett is at the top of the personal development game. He’s smart yet sensible… he may fly private and have mansions that are legit #goals yet he understands the Average Joe + Jane. He also has an energy that I find is nurturing and gentle. Kind of odd to say but I’m someone who can get intimidated by very strong, aggressive energy. If you want to elevate your life, you need to be listening to this one! And he is now starting to feature a lot of amazing guests!

The Skinny Confidential Him + Her Podcast
If you haven’t listened to any of these podcasts, you’re missing out. Especially if you’re in your 20s or 30s. Lauryn + Michael (the hosts) are so darn real and relatable (on a deep level). They cut through boring chit chat and provide valuable nuggets. They have one of the most engaging interview styles I’ve ever come across that even guests I don’t think I would care about- I end up loving! They’re OUT THERE – sex, addition, business, relationships, everything is covered. And, you’ll love it all!

The Marie Forleo Podcast
Marie is the total female entrepreneurial package. She is funny and understands women yet she’s a total boss and so intelligent. If you’re someone who runs his or her own business, would like to or just enjoys that type of talk… give this a listen. I’ve listen to Marie in various formats for over 5 years and I ALWAYS leave with an idea to apply.

Oprah’s SuperSoul Conversation
How could this one not make this list?! This podcast unlocks parts of me I did not know existed. Oprah, her guests and these conversations get deep into your soul. Her guests are outstanding and with each podcast, you’ll leave with some huge takeaway (or 20).
