Try swapping out your daily playlist for a few episodes of a great podcasts.
I love music, but sometimes my playlists feel stale. Sometimes I feel as if my song choices aren't contributing anything of value to my daily life; thus, I have started to listen to podcasts more frequently throughout my day. Here are my current faves:
1. How I Built This with Guy Raz
This NPR-sponsored podcast interviews top entrepreneurs and focuses on "how they built" their empires. Some notable guests include Whole Foods founder John Mackey and Glossier founder and CEO Emily Weiss.
2. Conan O'Brien Needs a Friend
Comedic legend Conan O'Brien's podcast offers a fun escape from mundane reality. In this podcast, Conan interviews a variety of starlets and significant people about their lives, values, and goals. A great recent episode that you should catch is his talk with Michelle Obama.
3. The Skinny Confidential: Him & Her
This podcast was introduced to me by a few of my friends and can be best described as "quintessentially LA." I am not a frequent listener, but hosts Lauryn Evarts and Michael Bosstick focus on interesting health developments and career-boosting motivation that leave anyone ready to "get after it."
4. And That's Why We Drink
For true crime fanatics and supernatural enthusiasts, this podcast melds both worlds together. Each podcast focuses on a true crime story and a ghost experience--all with some wine and milkshakes.
5. More Perfect
My favorite political podcast is "More Perfect." This podcast looks at constitutional law and some of the biggest Supreme Court cases that have significantly impacted our world today.
