I'm Loving: Podcasts

Sometime in November, I decided to become a podcast person. It stemmed from rediscovering the podcast that now is my only connection to some of my favorite bloggers ever, John and Sherry from Young House Love. YHL was the first blog I ever read, after my friend Katherine showed it to me. We even went to their book signing in 2012 and met them!


Anyways, I rediscovered their podcast and began listening. It quickly became addicting and I was catching up on all of the previous weeks when I was folding laundry, unloading the dishwasher, and driving in the car. Let's be honest, Beau is now probably thinking "hmm.. what are John and Sherry up to this week?" From there my love of podcasts kind of spiraled. I found another, and another.

So far I've been listening to: 


And I just downloaded Serial, which I know is a different style of podcast, but I remember hearing loads of buzz about it.

Do y'all listen to podcasts ever? Do you have any recommendations? I actually got asked to be interviewed by a podcast a while back, I can't really remember what happened with it, but I clearly didn't do it. Now I love asking myself questions in my head after listening to these awesome interviews. I love that it's a different way to glean information. I especially love hearing from awesome, inspirational women on their businesses, their faith, and being mamas. If you have any podcasts that you listen to regularly, what are they? I'd love to hear your recommendations! My friend Meredith just recommended another one to me today!

  2. I agree with Natalie- Serial season 1 was amazing, but season 2 wasn't as great. I've heard great things about The Happy Hour too!

  3. I'm SO all in on the podcasts! Love the Happy Hour, I went back to the beginning and listened to like 90% of them haha
    Others I like: The Perfect Wife (Jessie was a guest on the Happy Hour but I've been listening to her and her husband on their podcast, Marriage is Funny, for a couple years now. My husband and I listen together on road trips and such, Highly recommend both!), Real Life, Real People, The Podcast and Arc Stories.
    I also love listening to my home church, Houston's First Baptist messages or the Village Church in Dallas.
    Clearly, I've become quite obsessed with podcasts too.

  4. The Simple Show and Marriage is funny. really enjoyed Serial too. I think you'd really enjoy the simple show because she has done lots of extended international travel with her kids so her tips are great. It's my favorite! I love having podcasts to listen to in the morning when I'm drinking coffee and when out on walks with the kids. :)

  5. I love listening to The Popcast, What Should I Read Next and Here to Make Friends.

    The couple episodes that were made of Life At the Speed of Kids were great too!

  7. I too am a late arriver to the podcast trend! I started listening to the Happy Hour with Jamie Ivey over Christmas break and am totally obsessed-I am going to her live event in a few weeks in Austin!

    I also went to the Young House Love book signing back in 2012! Such fun memories- I haven't listened to their podcast yet, but I am going to try it now!

    Thanks for the recommendations!

  8. If you like season 1 of Serial, try Undisclosed next. It is so much longer, but it delves into the details of the case and I liked it so much better than Serial (and I loved Serial!).

    Also, if you like YHL's podcast, you should try Chris Loves Julia. They are also home bloggers and the format is really similar. They have even been guests on each other's podcast!

  9. Serial is interesting and engaging! I love listening to Watermark Community Church (my home church), The Village Church, and Tim Keller. I am looking for podcasts to listen to while I work out, so I will definitely have to try out YHL!

  10. Love many of these! It's different than the ones you mentioned here, but the first podcast I always recommend is Freakonomics. Fun to listen to, thought-provoking, great fodder for conversation! :)

  11. I love podcasts! Most of the ones I listen to are about military life or blogging as a business. But One Extraordinary Marriage is one I like and think you will too!

    (PS I love reading your blog! I rarely comment, but I do love reading it! Your little Beau is too precious!)

  12. The YHL live here in Richmond -- they're the best! I see them at lots of local events and it's so fun to have such famous people close by, and even more fun seeing them renovate the kind of house my family lives in! :) You have a great list going here! Annie F. Downs also has a fun one, and The Liturgists is a great one too!

  14. I'm sure you already know about this because ya'll go to the same church as them-- but the Wilkin's have an INCREDIBLE parenting podcast!! My husband and I thoroughly enjoyed listening to them together and took tons and tons of notes!! The link is on her website!

  16. I've recently been venturing into the podcast world too! Love Young House Love, and I've listened to a handful of Creative Empire episodes too. I've also enjoyed a few of Jenna Kutcher's Goal Digger podcast episodes, especially her interviews with Ashlyn Carter and Jen Olmstead!
