Podcasts: My New Love

by Stacey

Over the summer, I discovered Podcasts. I know I’m a bit late to the party but I am having a lot of fun with this new way of learning and listening.


The first podcast I discovered was The Art of Simple. Anne Bogel, (a.k.a. Modern Mrs. Darcy) one of my favorite bloggers, was interviewed over the summer at Tsh Oxenreider, The Art of Simple. It was so fun to hear Anne talk about her all of her favorite books after reading about them for so long.


Read Aloud Revival. Sarah Mackenzie from Amongst Lovely Things hosts one my favorite children’s literature blog. Her tag line is “build your family culture around books’ and what’s not to love about that. Sarah is a mother to six children and a homeschooler. Her book tastes trend much more classical than mine do but I love her passion and knowledge around reading aloud. She interviews a reading expert on each episode and I learn a ton each time I listen.


TED Radio Hour. This is my favorite of NPR’s many podcasts. Each episodes focuses on a topic and curates snippets from various TED talks. There are then interviews with each of the speakers. Examples of titles include, “The Next Greatest Generation” and “The Source of Creativity.”


Dan Pink Office Hours. This great podcast seems to have disappeared. I have my fingers crossed that it will return because there were always great interviews. Some of my favorites included Amanda Ripley author of The Smartest Kids in the World and Malcolm Gladwell whose recent release is titled David and Goliath.

So… are you a podcast listener? If so, what are your favorites? I would love to add to my list.

    I had a post planned about my new podcast addiction but you beat me to it! My favorites: The Lively Show, The Portfolio Life, Raise Your Hand & Say Yes, and This American Life.

    Very cool! I totally get why you like podcasts. I like them, too, and I also love listening to audio books on my iPhone.

      I like audio books too but I find I can only listen to them when I on long car trips. Not sure why I can’t get them to transfer to the ‘real world’!

  4. I just started listening to podcasts a couple of months ago too, so you’re not alone! 🙂 My very, very, very favorite is also The Read-Aloud Revival. It is fantastic and continually inspires me!

      I love Read Aloud Revival too. We read aloud a lot in our family but when I finish listening I just want to read more!
