I <3 Podcasts

About a year ago I started consuming podcasts on a regular basis and have absolutely fell in love with this awesomesauce medium.

There are so many topics out there to choose from. I learn SO MUCH from my podcasts of choice, both in my line of work as a blogger and other topics I enjoy.

You can do the same.

Podcasts are convenient. I take in a podcast while driving, showering, walking…even in bed through the night. (I did that for several months.)

So this month I want to mix things up and instead of offering ten awesomesauce blog posts you can read, I’m going to share the top 10 podcast episodes I enjoyed the most in May, 2016.

Not included are some that may not interest you. I’ve stuck to one’s for the most part that BYOB followers will either find useful or perhaps interesting or entertaining.

#9 may not be your cup o’ tea. If you don’t like philosophy or history, that’s cool. I’ll occasionally include one or two of those.

Hey, there’s still 9 others that are pretty cool.

I’m also big into the Myers-Briggs personality test. If you are curious or like that topic, check out #8.

Most of this month’s list are practical topics any blogger will find beneficial if they will do what is on the podcast 😉

Before we dive into these treats, let’s look at this month’s treat from Chef Dennis…

Alright, now let’s dive in to my favorite podcasts from last month! These are all shows I listen to regularly as time allows.

3 Beautiful Anarchy with Jeffrey Tucker: What We Can Learn from Rice Pudding 

Tucker’s podcast format has changed and can now be found at I found his earlier version of Beautiful Anarchy on iTunes and the original twenty episodes are succinct and quite good. This one has a great message for entrepreneurs: The highly successful New York City restaurant called Rice to Riches can teach us a lot about the free market, simple ideas for business (and blogging) and how meeting a need the public wants is a beautiful thing. Sometimes we don’t even know we want it until a creative entrepreneur comes along…
