Since starting to listen to podcasts, I have been introduced to a new form of media that is massively different from any other kind I had been so used to consuming. They can entertain while also informing and educating, and they don’t require you to stare at a screen.
You can listen while exercising, driving around or just cleaning your room. Podcasts give you a way to occupy yourself with something meaningful.
There are plenty of podcasts available allowing everyone to find something they enjoy. From shows about business, or crime and mystery, to lifestyle shows giving advice and tips, there is a podcast for every occasion.
Here are two I recommend to turn you into a podcast lover and draw you into a new world of entertainment.
The first is “How I Built This with Guy Raz” by NPR. This podcast is for future entrepreneurs, innovators and creators. Every episode Guy Raz interviews the founders of some great businesses including BirchBox, Ben & Jerry’s, Rent the Runway, Airbnb and more. It is perfect for learning the ins and outs of creating and running a business and how to turn it into an empire.
Entrepreneurs give some really helpful insights on following your instincts, trusting the process and steps you can take to make your ideas come to life. If you’re looking to start the next movement which sweeps the nation, listening to this podcast is a great way to start.
The second podcast I highly recommend is “@Lexi” by Lexi Lombard. If you want to feel like you are listening to the cool older sister you never had, then give this a try. Lexi’s podcast is truly a diary of a Gen Z figuring it all out in the real world.
Every concern, fear, and worry that a young adult has regarding body image, money, beauty standards, social media, and growing up, Lexie shares and addresses in her podcast.
Giving personal anecdotes and advice from her experiences, this friendly listen makes you feel less alone in a world that can be stressful to navigate.
Try out these two shows to ease your way into the world of podcasts.
See how they add some excitement to activities you would complete mindlessly. You may find your new favorite pastime.
