You don’t listen to these Podcasts?

Here are some recommendations — good list for you to get started with the World of Podcasts!

There are many people who say — I would love to hear a great podcast! But there are few who really get on listening to it. For me, honestly, this world of podcasts has been very exciting and addictive. I listen to podcasts while working, cycling, or commuting! <No, I don’t hit the gym to run on treadmill and listen to podcasts>

SO! Here I am with a sort of long list of podcasts and some recommendations of episodes which i have liked. These include various types of shows and varied topics.

Most of these recommendations revolve around startups, remote working, medicine, history, minimalist journey, crazy experiments which Tim Ferriss does etc. Essentially, I have been hooked on to longish casts. Yes! For many, they dont like long duration podcasts.

I LOVE following casts which are more than an hour and so on. Podcasts are great source for learning new things, getting to know about different books, various subjects and blogposts which people read.

Do not miss on checking out the show notes of podcasts you like. Mostly, every podcast will have detailed show notes with relevant links and references mentioned during the show.

Let us begin…

Tim Ferriss— Tim is one that guy who is super interesting, for various reasons. His podcast show is diverse in terms of guests, topics and also has some short episodes where Tim reads out lessons. Newsweek has called him “the world’s best human guinea pig,” which he takes as a compliment. His experiments can be found at www.fourhourblog.com

Here are some of the links of podcasts from his show —

Maria Popova , Brain Picking , extensively speaks about how she reads, writes and what does her routine look like
Alexis talks about startups, his story of Redditt and more. Yes, some YC stuff too

Tony is absolutely inspiring guy, big name in the coaching landscape, often termed as motivational speaker / coach, though he is not exactly that! His new book is up for sale on Amazon — go check it out!
