A few of my favorite things | Podcasts

Vacation ends soon—I’m slipping in another quickie post before I run out to enjoy the end of it!

If you’ve been following me for a while, you know that I’m a big fan of podcasts. I listen to them when I’m driving, when I’m walking, when I’m cleaning house, and over the past few years, I’ve settled on a few favorites, which I thought I’d share with you.

Good Life Project

Jonathan Fields conducts in-depth, unscripted, conversations with acclaimed artists, entrepreneurs, makers, and world-shakers as he explores the question, “What does it mean to live a good life?” He occasionally does shorter “riffs” about what’s on his mind. I come away from each episode knowing something about a topic I’ve often never even considered and feeling generally positive about life.

Over it and on with it

Christine Hassler is a life coach who has a background in spiritual psychology and a lot of personal experience with overcoming anxiety. Her weekly podcast alternates between “Coach’s Corner,” in which she presents either monologues or interviews with other coaches who focus on related topics and recorded coaching calls with clients who have specific questions about an issue they want to get over and move on from. I have learned a lot from this podcast—not just the content of her calls but her coaching approach as well.

Not your mother’s menopause

Dr. Fiona Lovely (love her surname!) is trained in restorative endocrinology, functional neurology, and functional medicine and is also a of Doctor of Chiropractic. She covers all things menopause and perimenopause with an eye on the science, an ability to explain it in plain English, and the determination to give manageable action steps to make this life stage less overwhelming. She also has a bawdy sense of humor that really tickles my funny bone.

I’ve got a number of podcasts saved for my drive home the next two days….
