6 Podcast Recommendations To Enhance Life

Since of late I’ve been using my commute time for podcasts. While there are many podcasts I listen to, a few standout. I have benefited immensely from these, and I thought of sharing some of them with you.

1. Grammar Girl

When I was in school, I absolutely hated learning grammar! As the years progressed I realized that there was no escape from it! As a result, I was skeptical when I first heard about Grammar Girl podcasts. The fact that I can just listen to it (and not read grammar!) made me listen to that first Grammar Girl podcast. I was surprised because what I heard was definitely far from the "orthodox" way of teaching grammar!
Grammar Girl provides short, friendly tips with good examples. Whether English is your first language or your second language, these grammar, punctuation, style and business tips will make you a better and more successful writer.

2. Boagworld

is a long running web design podcast. They offer great interviews with experts from the field of web design. The content is well organized, nicely presented and it is funny, too. The banter between Paul and Marcus is often the best part!

3. Money, Mission and Meaning: Passion at work, Purpose at play

Everyone has the sense that there is a deeper level of satisfaction to be had, no matter how happy they are. Everyone wants greater meaning from work, more freedom around money and deeper connections in relationships. Mark Michael Lewis, Author and CEO and his guests explore the insights and practices that integrate money, mission and meaning to experience a more profound relationship to the mystery and miracle we call life.

4. Start Up Studio

I was introduced to this podcast by one of my colleagues. Start Up Studio explores how successful entrepreneurs reach the top. Betsy Flanagan interviews extraordinary entrepreneurs to find out how they made their idea, a finished product. These interview are very inspirational and the entrepreneurs offer advice for the rest of us as well.

5. Smarter by the Minute

is an easy, motivational and practical way to learn new ideas. These quick tips are presented by Doug Smart, CSP, an award-winning, international motivational speaker and author/co-author of more than 20 books.

6. Manager Tools

This is a weekly business podcast that teaches specific skills to help improve management performance. It is focused on helping business professionals achieve their desired management and career objectives. (It has won the best business podcast award in both 2006 and 2007)

Hi Shamelle, Thanks for recommending my blog, SmarterByTheMinute.com. I know because the cyber world has less than 6 degrees of separation. One of your fans who also listens to my podcast sent your Top 6 List to me. You know how to pick quality! And it shows there are only 2 degrees of separation between us. Doug Smart

Hi Shamelle,

Thank you so much for recommending my podcast Startup Studio! And what a great blog. I absolutely love the idea of "incidental gleanings.' I get them and often want to share so I'm glad you are doing just that!
