After Serial was all the rage during the end of 2014, podcasts have found themselves having a serious moment in the online community. Not that they haven't been around and popular for a long time now, but more and more of us are starting to turn to them as ways to learn, grow, and be inspired and entertained. I've been seriously hooked on podcasts recently; working from home alone most days means things can get a little too quiet for my liking, and I seriously crave for the company of fellow creatives and entrepreneurs who dream as big as I do. I've stumbled across five awesome podcast shows recently that I really want to share with you guys today as I think you'll love them as much as I do.
After The Jump: Grace Bonney's podcast show After The Jump has recently just hit its 100th episode, and it's well loved amongst the creative online community as a resource for interviews and insights into the creative industries. The blogger behind Design Sponge, Grace's show explores everything from overcoming fear, to the future of print magazines, to creative funding and getting paid as a creative.
Being Boss: This podcast show has only just started but I am so excited as it's created by Kathleen Shannon from one of my favourite ever blogs, Braid Creative, alongside her friend Emily from Indie Shopography. Being Boss is a show for creative entrepreneurs all about being your own boss and everything that plays a part in running your own business, and after their first episode I'm already hooked.
Creating Your Own Path: If you're a creative forging your own path and dreaming seriously big, this is the podcast show for you. A weekly interview series with change-makers from various creative industries, Creating Your Own Path is great for a weekly burst of inspiration.
Dear Sugar: Not exactly for creatives, this one is for anyone who is a fan of advice columns and exploring life and all the things that makes us human. I'm a huge fan of Cheryl Strayed, her book Tiny Beautiful Things, a compilation of some of her best Dear Sugar advice columns, is one of my favourite reads and I'm so excited she's arrived in audio form now. I'm also currently reading Wild so I'm having a serious Cheryl Strayed moment. Hosted by Cheryl and fellow Dear Sugar advice columnist Steve Almond, you can listen to their first episode here.
The Lively Show: I think Jess Lively's The Lively Show is my favourite from this bunch and I've already binged through the majority of her archive of episodes. Jess is an awesome coach and writer helping people build lives and businesses that focus on values based intention, and through her weekly podcast shows she interviews bloggers, creatives, business owners and inspiring people who share their stories and lessons learned along the way. Two of my favourites have to be her episodes with Danielle Moss from The Every Girl and Erin Loechner from Clementine Daily - as an editor of an online magazine it was awesome to hear more about their experiences of doing something similar.
