039 – My Top 9 Favorite Podcasts

Podcasts are such a great way of learning and consuming content. You can learn so much from them and are perfect while walking or doing other tasks, making you feel like you can multitask productively. 

There are so many podcasts out there, and the number keeps growing, and it isn’t always the easiest to discover new ones. My favourite way to discover new ones is when they get recommended by others. Today I just wanted to share with you some of my favourite podcasts with a little description so you can tell if they might interest you. I recently released my own podcast The ANAK Creates Podcast, and these are some of my favourites to listen to that constantly inspire me.

In no particular order, just how I saw them on my podcast player.

  • Smart Passive Income Podcast with Pat Flynn – I am a big supporter of Pat Flynn and everything he does. His Smart Passive Income (SPI) brand is something every entrepreneur can aspire to build. He is a pro in the podcasting space and has been doing this for more than 10 years. He gives all types of insight into building a brand, a business, and an online presence. Everything he teaches, you can see in practice with his own business.

  • Ask Pat 2.0 with Pat Flynn – Another Pat Flynn podcast, where you listen to coaching calls with different clients where he gives them direction and advice on how to build and grow their business.

  • The Darkroom – This podcast is a great listen for anyone in a creative field dealing with social media. They tell stories and interview some of the best photographers, internet filmmakers and social media creators out there, talking about their journey, struggles and lessons learned.

  • This Remote Life with Darren Cronian – Darren is working on building his online business HiveVine, where he wants to help people who have a desire to work remotely and get away from their 9-5 job. He has a lot of insight into travelling while working, how to work remotely, and tips to help grow a freelance or location independent source of income.

  • A Couple of Creatives with Chris Hau & Lizzie Peirce – Chris and Lizzie are engaged, live together, run a media company together, and both run their own successful YouTube channels. They are incredibly entertaining and talk about what it’s like to be in a relationship with another creative person and dealing with work and personal life separation. They interview other creative couples as well for their experiences.

  • When’s Food – This is just a purely entertaining podcast with 4 friends who get together, eat (obviously), and chat about whatever comes to mind that week. I got introduced to the show because Becki from the YouTube channel “Becki and Chris” is one of the 4, and have since got hooked to all their personalities and entertaining random lighthearted topics that brighten up my week.

  • DIY Musician Podcast – Great insight on this podcast for anyone starting out as an artist, working on building their own musical brand, or looking to release their single or album. It’s created by CD Baby, so a lot of the tools they use have to do with their platform, but they do have great knowledge and ideas to pull from.

  • Accidental Tech Podcast – This is for tech people who like computers, programming, app creation or anything with tech news. I always love hearing these guys banter over the latest Apple news or their complaints about new computer releases. Always great insight, info and entertainment.

  • The GaryVee Audio Experience – For those of you who don’t know Gary Vaynerchuk, he is a business and marketing monster and owns Vayner Media. He has so much to say about building a business, what you should focus on, and how to stay on top of your marketing and social media. He puts out an impressive amount of content, but the podcast has become one of my favourite ways to listen to him.

Let me know if you listen to any of these, or if you check them out and what you thought! Let me know what your favorite podcasts are. Also, don’t forget to also check out The ANAK Creates Podcast where post my weekly thoughts about the music industry and creativity related topics.

Until next time, always be creating.
