Five on Friday - Podcasts

A (sometimes) weekly feature here on my blog sharing five FRESH random photos (or thoughts or interesting tidbits).

When I'm driving long distances or out for an exercise walk alone, I enjoy listening to podcasts. It's amazing the number of podcasts available these days, so I thought I'd share five of my favorites today.

1. What Should I Read Next with Anne Bogel of Modern Mrs Darcy. Each week Anne interviews readers about the books they love, the books they hate, and the books they are reading now. Then Anne does a little "literary matchmaking" and recommends three books they should read next. The problem with this podcast is that it has the potential to greatly increase the length of my books-I-want-to-read list!

2. Live Happy Now from the editors of Live Happy magazine shares ideas and research on how to live a happy life. I enjoy listening to the interviews with a variety of people about living a positive and healthy life, practices that increase happiness, and ideas for thriving and creating a meaningful life.

3. Getting Things Done provides tips and real-life stories from individuals using the GTD method outlined in David Allen's book, Getting Things Done (which I reviewed HERE).

4. Elise Gets Crafty is a weekly podcast that talks "mostly about creative small business." Elise Blaha Cripe shares her own creative small business adventures and interviews other business owners about their journey and tips for starting and running a creative business.

5. Do It Scared is a new podcast that Ruth Soukup (of Living Well Spending Less) began on April 1 of this year. Each episode is designed to help you "face your fears, overcome adversity, and create a life you love."

Do you listen to podcasts? Please share your favorites in the comments and let me know if you're adding any of these to your playlist.


  1. So what's your favorite app to listen to podcasts? I listen to Power of Moms sometimes. I just put GTD on my book list. See ya soon.:)

  2. My favorite podcast is "On Being." I never have time for any others since my list of interviews to listen to there is so long.


Thanks so much for your comment - it's like a ray of sunshine in my day!
