Yes, it’s true. I’m a podcast junkie. I listen to podcasts all throughout the week – in my car, while I walk my dog, when I’m cleaning or making dinner.
To be honest, though, I never really understood the whole “podcast thing” until I stumbled across one episode that intrigued me. That episode lead me to another great podcast, which introduced me to another podcast that opened me up to a whole world of other podcasts. And by then I was hooked.
For me, listening to a podcast is like sitting around a campfire with people I’ve never met. I laugh. I cry. I learn. I grow.
I’m not sure if listening to podcasts is for everyone, but I can honestly say it has been instrumental for me as I try to blossom into my best, truest self. So, I wanted to share with you my top five favorite podcasts of 2017, in case you’ve been looking for something new to massage your mind and feed your soul.
- The Robcast with Rob Bell
- You Made It Weird with Pete Holmes
- Ask Science Mike with Mike McHargue
- The [De]Constructionists with Adam Narloch & John Williamson
- SuperSoul Conversations with Oprah Winfrey
P.S. I listened to many other excellent podcasts this year, which made it very hard to narrow my list down to five favorites. But if you drop a comment below with one of your favorites, I’ll share with you an additional one of mine!
