I love podcasts.
I have done for a few years now.
I found them at a time I frustrated by the radio stations that were on offer in Melbourne.
The radio stations in Melbourne are terrible.
The conversations just filling air time.
Having to wait so long for a good song.
The amount of ads.
I found that podcasts were a great alternative.
You could choose the conversation you listen to.
You could skip the ads.
It was a beautiful alternative.
Since discovering the wonderful world of podcasts, I have barely touched a radio station.
Right now, if you click my podcast app on my phone, these are the podcasts you would see.
MY PODCAST PLAYLIST
- Alan Watts: Alan Watts was a British philosopher, writer and speaker. He is well known today for his videos on YouTube like this. Originally he was known for introducing Eastern philosophy to a Western audience. His podcast are a series of recordings of him speaking about real human issues. Finding purpose, meaning, hope etc. His mind is on another level.
- JocX Podcast: The JocX Podcast is hosted by one of my best mates on the planet, James O'Connor. He's a leadership and team success coach who started this podcast to learn about the habits, routines, tips, tricks and strategies from those who are the best in their fields. In this show, James picks the brains of those who have done it before to give his listeners a better idea of what those who are great at what they do, have experienced along the way.
- Revisionist History: A new podcast from Malcolm Gladwell and Panoply Media. Each week for 10 weeks, Revisionist History will go back and reinterpret something from the past: an event, a person, an idea. Something overlooked. Something misunderstood.
- Rich Roll Podcast: Rich Roll is most well known as a vegan Ultra Endurance athlete. His podcast has a broad range of guests, but always comes back to high performance and diet. Rich has been a huge influence on my life and the food choices I currently make. I've never felt better in my body since implementing much of Rich's advice into my own life.
- Rob Bell Podcast: Rob Bell explores the divine. Sometimes he has a guest, sometimes he just speaks, but all the time, he's delving into the spiritual world and pulling out incredible thoughts, stories and ideas that we can apply to our lives. Incredible.
- The Joe Rogan Experience: This is my favourite podcast. Joe is a comedian, UFC commentator and self described psychedelic adventurer. His podcast doesn't seem to have a 'theme' like so many others. He simply organises a guest, and lets the conversation go where it may. But it nearly always goes somewhere incredible. I love Joe's ability to challenge opinions but also be challenged, and his incredible skill of putting his thoughts into words. If you haven't heard of Joe Rogan, definitely take the time to have a listen.
- The Tim Ferriss Show "Each episode, I deconstruct world-class performers from eclectic areas (investing, sports, business, art etc) to extract the tactics, tools and routines you can use. This includes favourite booking, morning routines, exercise habits, time management and much more" - Tim Ferriss
- Waking Up: In 2015 Sam Harris' Podcast was selected by Apple as one of the iTunes best. Sam is a neuroscientist and philosopher who looks at the important and controversial questions about the human mind, society and current events. I've only just recently subscribed to his channel, but really enjoy hearing his thoughts.
