A Few of My Thoughts

A Few of My Favourite (Podcasts)

The popularity of podcasts is increasing[1]. Not only are more people listening to podcasts, but they’re listening to more podcasts. The beauty of podcasts is their accessibility. They’re free, they’re available through many different apps and programs, and you can listen anywhere at any time. I enjoy listening to podcasts while I’m driving or walking the dog. My family listens to together when we’re on road trips. (And it’s a great alternative to screen time.)


Podcasting is becoming an increasingly important part of the Canadian conversation.

Most podcasts put out new content on a regular basis, usually weekly or monthly. And I usually anticipate the release of a new podcast. I love hearing interviews with successful business owners who are willing to share their struggles and victories. These are real life stories of well-known people and businesses. I find I am encouraged to persevere and always take away some new knowledge or best practice suggestion. The podcasts provide links and additional content regarding the topic being discussed in the show notes.  With so many podcasts available, I thought I’d share my list of favourite business and leadership podcasts. If you find one you really like, be sure to subscribe to it so you don’t miss an episode. Most of them are about 30 minutes long, so the time commitment is minimal, but you won’t regret it!
