For this post, I want to share my most favourite podcast series that I have grown to fond over the course of mmmmmaybe …. the last 2 years.
I love listening to podcast. I love listening to it so much, I can definitely say, it has changed my life.
My morning rituals involves a dose of at least, 1 episode of a podcast series.
And so I dedicated this post to all my Gen-X friends. This is for you guys. For your next 20 years. I hope these podcast could give as much learning, inspiration and support that you need.
So here are my Top 5.
- Without Fail by Alex Blumberg, Founder Gimlet Media
Gimlet Media is a podcast company that provides a full range of different kinds of serials podcast. Without Fail is Alex’s premier podcast, and a reflection of what Gimlet Media stands for right from the start.
Series of interviews who’s either won big or loose big time. Sharing how they risked or never thought they could ever achieved. People who we thought, looked like had it all, only to have fail spectacularly. Stories and lessons on success, failures from really famous people. The beauty of Podcast is that people become more loose and easier to open up their stories.
For those who never listened to Without Fail, I would recommend to start from the beginning. 1st episode starts here.
- Akimbo, a Podcast from Seth Godin.
Yes ! The Marketing Guru, once again teaches us new ways to understand through these series of podcast. Not only in a simple way he could open our minds but also share a very practical sample cases and stories narrated on each episode, in just a very short time.
The philosophy. Akimbo taken from an ancient word, means “the bend in the river or an archer’s bow. Akimbo has become a symbol for strength, a posture of possibility, that the idea that Seth wanted was when we stand tall, arms bent, looking right at it, we can make a difference.
Akimbo’s podcast is about culture and about how we can change it. About seeing whats happening and choosing to do something. Philosophical and yet poetic.
The uniqueness of his podcasts is that each episode provides a chance for listeners to ask questions and yet what I understood was it has become a way for Seth to make sure the understanding that he want to get across was the way he wanted listeners to.
It is also a great way, to engage, teacher to students, grow the relationships, strengthen the bond of Seth as leader of his community, listeners, followers, learners, by giving the guidance they need, every step of the way. Great !
- In Progress from GirlBoss
In Progress: An Imperfect Journey, Navigated. In Progress Podcast claim to be a crash course in living a purposeful life. Guided by a millennial, Noor Tagouri. For those who are open to level up your own self like me. It could also be used as a reflection to your own true self.
However this came from a younger generation’s perspective, this has truly helped me. Read.
- The GaryVee Audio Experience
I’ve been following Gary Vee for quite some time now. And both he and Seth Godin has been my personal therapist for self-care and personal growth. Without them knowing of course ^_^.
From time to time, whenever I need to get a good amount of personal boost, I would go to any of his channel. And then I would feel better. Life saver.
The GaryVee Audio experience is a mixture of everything that Gary have done adapted on audio. From his episodes of #AskGaryVee Show, a mix of the best highlights from his DAILYVEE documentary video series, keynote speeches on marketing and business, interviews, fireside chats, and any of his up to date and current thoughts.
- Ctrl Alt Delete by Emma Gannon
Another millennial that suits my generation-X mind. Emma Gannon, author, blogger, and host of Ctrl Alt Delete podcast is the spokesperson for millennials as she started her podcast series in 2016. Previously working as a social media journalist for publications like The Debrief and Glamour, the podcast was inspired and started from blogging and writing her first book, also named Ctrl Alt Delete about her life growing up online.
Following the success of her book and its partner podcast, Gannon has created a huge community online full of clever and interesting women. And she was named on 2019’s Forbes 30 Under 30 list for media and marketing. Taken from ES article.
Hope you will enjoy as much as I do.
