5 Podcasts To Binge Listen All Weekend Long

There’s nothing like a good podcast to jam to while you’re working, commuting, or if you’re a podcast junkie like me, simply walking your dog.

When it comes to podcasts, there are a few go-to ones that I keep on rotation to fit my different listening moods. Like a good book or a favorite recipe, I love sharing my favorite podcasts and why I think they’re great — so here are just a few of the podcasts I’m loving at the moment, and hopefully, they will add some entertainment to your next commute too:

For the Love

For the Love is hosted by The New York Times best-selling author and star of HGTV’s “My Big Family Renovation,” Jen Hatmaker. This podcast is only one week old, but based off of Jen’s first episode with her galpal and New York Times best-selling author Shauna Niequist, I know it’s going to be a good one.

For the Love is soul food. Jen’s first series of her podcast is for the girls, with 5 episodes focused on the importance of girlfriends: “what we love about them, where it can get sticky, how to make and keep them, and why we love them.”

Off the Vine

If you want to feel like your always having mid-morning drinks with your girlfriends, you will love Off the Vine. This podcast is hosted by ABC’s season 11 Bachelorette star, Kaitlyn Bristowe.

If you follow Kaitlyn on Instagram or Snapchat, then you know she loves her red wine. Every Tuesday Kaitlyn sits down with a guest, pours a glass of wine, and chats with well-known musicians, celebrities, and even her best friend (one of my favorite episodes), giving behind the scenes details from The Bachelor, the importance of self love in the online age, and basically whatever else they feel like discussing.

I love how laid back and entertaining this podcast is. It’s impossible not to laugh and be in a good mood when listening to Off the Vine.

The GaryVee Audio Experience

If you’re an entrepreneur, have aspirations of being an entrepreneur, or just want a podcast to get you absolutely pumped for the day, you need to give The GaryVee Audio Experience a listen. This podcast is hosted by business expert himself, Gary Vaynerchuk.

Gary Vaynerchuk left college and went to work for his family’s wine business, where he grew the business from $4M to $45M in only five years. Gary now runs VaynerMedia, one of the world’s most creative digital and social media agencies, and was also an investor in Twitter, Tumblr, Facebook, Uber, and Birchbox.

On his podcast Gary provides life and business advice applicable for anyone in their teens to their 60's, branding tips, interviews with famous hip-hop musicians and athletes discussing social media branding, and shares a mix of: fireside chats, keynote speeches on marketing and business, as well as any current thoughts that he records for the podcasts.

These episodes are released daily and all I can really say is that they are FIRE, and will prepare you for life and work domination.

How I Built This

How I Built This provides constant inspiration by sharing success stories of innovators, entrepreneurs, and idealists who followed their dreams and created successful businesses and movements from scratch.

Host Guy Raz interviews founders from some of the world’s most well-known companies and brands. You’ll hear interviews from the co-founder of the Rolling Stones, the founder of Spanx, the founder of Toms, and lots lots more.

Hearing the beginnings of these huge empires shows how before they became the influential businesses and brands they are today, they were an idea. For anyone who has their own idea that is beginning to morph into a dream, check out How I Built This.
