More Inspiring Podcasts!

Just when I thought I had subscribed to my podcast favorites, I discovered more! As usual, I enjoy uplifting, educational messages about physical and mental health and wellness. I think it’s important to keep listening and learning to inspire us and keep our mental health in check, especially during this pandemic.

At first, I wondered how I was going to find time to listen to all these podcasts I was interested in. They range in length from 10 min. to an hour and more! I have found ways to incorporate them into my day while I’m working (on routine tasks), cooking , nature journaling or driving. It helps make the journey productive and enjoyable!

Here are the new podcasts I am listening to now:

Darin Olien Show: This amazing collection is on all things holistic health and some of the products that we are told are safe to use, but might be harmful. Darin is the co-host of the inspiring Netflix series, Down to Earth with Zac Efron which was a fantastic series about our incredible planet and how to use renewable resources in a healthy way. He wrote the bestseller book “Superlife – The five fixes that will keep you healthy, fit and eternally awesome” and worked with fitness-company Beachbody to formulate “Shakeology” super food shake supplement.

The Lucas Rockwood Show: Mental and physical health experts join Lucas for no-nonsense discussions. Lucas is very knowledgeable, down-to-earth and has interesting stories about experiencing living in different countries in the world. He has a few exercise programs from his studio in Barcelona available via zoom and video – his 21-Day Hip Opening Challenge is excellent!

Clear + Vivid with Alan Alda: Alan Alda explores his curiosity on science and health topics that are so interesting and enjoyable! He revealed recently that he has been diagnosed with Parkinson’s Disease, but hasn’t let that dampen his enthusiasm for learning with a positive attitude!

TED Talks Daily: A range of topics from technology to education to wellness! Most of these episodes are short (13 – 30 min.) so it’s convenient to listen to if you only have a pocket of time to be inspired.

On my radar:

Shut Your Monkey: This one sounds so interesting! Trying to combat that voice in your head that nitpicks all your creative ideas is a constant struggle. This podcast claims to give practical advice in an intelligent and humorous way to shut that monkey down! Hosted by Danny Gregory who is an author of more than a dozen books, a creative teacher for the Sketchbook Skool.

Art for All: Danny Gregory’s new and improved podcast for creative inspiration and advice.

Next Level Human with Dr. Jade Teta: This integrative physician has straight talk about in-depth health and fitness topics.

See my first list of podcast favorites!

  1. Karen, I don’t think I had heard of a single one of these. I have added the Alan Alda one and the one with Dr. Jade Teta to my list to try. Thank you so much.


    • That’s great! The first 4 that I listed are top notch! If you get Down to Earth Netflix special, take a look, it was super interesting! I am still evaluating the ones “on my radar”. Let me know what you learn!
