You can tell a lot about a person by the books that they read and the same can be said about the podcasts they enjoy.
Here are my favourite podcasts.
1.Myleik Teele My Taught You
Growing up, I had no blueprint for success.There was no one who looked like me to show me the ropes, so I vowed that if I ever became successful, I would help others. MyTaughtYou.com is an inspiring space for young, multicultural women. This is a truthful, honest space where I’m going to delve out my best advice, quotes, stories and podcasts for YOU! Some women have no idea how to navigate office politics. You will learn that here. Some women haven’t mastered their style. You will learn that here. Some women don’t have a mentor to encourage them to follow their dreams. You will GET that here. Thanks for visiting. Let the journey begin.
Myleik Teele gives me LIFE! I am a huge fan however, I can’t compete with Rhianna’s navy or the Beyhive. She provides business coaching, book recommendations and honest advice on personal issues. I love her honesty and she is very open with her own experiences. She is prepared but unscripted and unedited which I enjoy. She is that girl friend or sister that you go to when you want the truth and nothing but the truth, even if you can’t handle it!
2. AOC The Art of Charm
You’ll learn our top strategies to improve your career, confidence, lifestyle and love-life from top experts like life and business-hackers Tim Ferriss, Ramit Sethi and Noah Kagan to Seth Godin, Simon Sinek, Olivia Fox, The Art of Charm team and more.
I get so much from this podcast-professional and personal development, life hacks and interviews from very successful people. At first, I thought, this podcast is great but I wish they had content geared towards women and in fact, they do! The link above directs you to their podcasts geared towards the ladies.
3. Behind the Brilliance
BEHIND THE BRILLIANCE
Is a weekly podcast that blends Lisa’s inspiring and funny musings with conversations with some of the world’s most creative and inspiring people. New episodes go live every Thursday.
Lisa Nicole Bell interviews some of the most interesting people ever! I adore that she showcases the brilliance of people of colour. She is candid and speaks at length about emotional maintenance, mental health and productivity. She provides content on a weekly basis so she is consistent which is great.
4. Dear Sugar
“The universe has good news for the lost, lonely and heartsick. Dear Sugar is here, and speaking straight into your ears. Hosted by the original Sugars, Cheryl Strayed and Steve Almond, the podcast fields all your questions — no matter how deep or dark — and offers radical empathy in return. New episodes are released weekly.”
Cheryl Strayed and Steve Almond cover juicy topics about love, sex and relationships. The podcast has a bit of a soap opera appeal. People share very intimate and at times embarrassing details about their lives, but Strayed and Almond contain the drama in a constructive, objective and feminist frame work. This podcast curbs my guilt of enjoying the spilled tea by appealing to my intellectual side.
5.The Small Business Express
Discovering the AHA Moments
Mike Monroe and Gary Shouldis provide actionable business strategies for small businesses. I enjoy the casual and relaxed banter within their pointed discussions. Polished but not overly produced, they make the content easy to digest and they provide a cheat sheets.
6. Guys We Fucked
Welcome to GUYS WE F****D: THE ANTI SLUT-SHAMING PODCAST. They spread their legs, now they’re spreading the word that women should be able to have sex with WHOEVER they want WHENEVER they want and not be ashamed or called sluts or whores.
Surprisingly, this podcast isn’t as raunchy and as shocking as the title and description suggests. Each show is a healthy conversation about sex with humour from a sex-positive viewpoint.
7. 2 Dope Chicks
Phoebe Robinson and Jessica Williams, along with their favorite comedians, for stories about sex, romance, race, hair journeys, living in New York, and Billy Joel. Plus a whole bunch of other s**t. Produced by WNYC Studios.
I discovered 2 Dope Chicks after listening to Guys We Fucked. I really appreciate having the perspective of two black women in the comedic space. I also enjoy that the content is not limited to sex and relationships. I love the diversity and range of perspectives. There is one downside to this podcast which is very subjective criticism. I find that some of the comedians are outstanding and some are not as seasoned so I enjoy some episodes a lot more than others.
My list of my favourite podcasts should tell you that I am sappy and sarcastic at the same damn time. I want to be the best woman I can be and I aspire to be an entrepreneur. Check out these podcasts and please let me know your thoughts.
