The Best Podcasts
The Joe Rogan Experience
Whatever you think of Joe Rogan, you’re wrong. I put off listening to any of his podcasts due to a number of pre-conceived notions – and the fact that the interviews are usually nearly 3 hours long. Driving across Australia gave me the opportunity to sit and listen, and I was blown away. Three of my favourite episodes are Dave Rubin (someone else I’ve avoided for erroneous notions) Donnie Vincent and Jordan Peterson.
A podcast by Basecamp about a better way to work and run a business. A particularly favourite episode of mine is Culturati Summit where you hear from the CEO of the Obama Foundation and Dave Carter of Patagonia.
Masters of Scale
Masters of Scale is an original podcast hosted by Reid Hoffman, Co-founder of LinkedIn and Investor at Greylock. In each episode, Reid shows how companies grow from zero to a gazillion, testing his theories with legendary leaders. All of the episodes are amazing, but start with Howard Schultz from Starbucks. Because… well, just because.
WorkLife with Adam Grant
You spend a quarter of your life at work, so shouldn’t you enjoy it? Organizational psychologist (yes, that’s a thing apparently) Adam Grant takes you inside some of the world’s most unusual workplaces to discover the keys to better work in this TED original podcast. Give “The Problem with All-Stars” a go.
Lore is an award-winning, critically-acclaimed podcast about true life scary stories. Each episode examines a new dark historical tale in a modern campfire experience. With more than 16,700 5-star reviews on Apple Podcasts and over 126-million listens, that’s clearly a good thing. Literally every episode is fantastic and fascinating, and for the analytical amongst us a masterclass in story-telling, so give any of them a try! Start with Road Trip. I adore this podcast.
