1. Optimal Living Daily

I just discovered Optimal Living Daily, which is great. Host Justin Malik finds and narrates a blog post every day from a top blogger in the personal development, productivity, or minimalism space. Each episode is only 7¬–10 minutes, which is the perfect length of time for me, and it’s nice to get exposure to a broad range of blogger content without having to read. -Raphael Burnes, CTO at iPhone Life

2. Pod Save the People

Pod Save the People is one of my favorites, because I love activism-geared news and listening to interviews with people involved in education, health, and criminal justice policy. -Suzannah Kingsbury, Student at Northwestern University

3. Waking Up with Sam Harris

When it comes to intellectual content, I really like Waking Up with Sam Harris, who explores topics such as politics, human behavior, and the future of society from as objective of a standpoint as I have found. I love the way he challenges identity politics. -Sara Estrin, Resident Doctor in Las Vegas

4. Where Should We Begin? with Esther Perel

This podcast lets you peek inside real therapy sessions with psychotherapist Esther Perel and hear stories of the undercurrents in real couples’ relationships and see how she navigates these dynamics. -Alea Lobdell, Birth and Postpartum Doula at Doula Bloom

5. WTF Am I Doing With My Life? with Kristy Arnett

Kristy’s podcast gives me the opportunity to grow every time I listen to an episode. She asks powerful questions, tells personal stories, and brings on guests who are amazing individuals. This show makes me reflect on important topics and provides support for whatever I am dealing with at the time. It’s a really inspiring way to start my day! -Olga Moreno, Account Director at Crowe PR

6. Heavyweight

Heavyweight sparks feelings of nostalgia and is sentimental, sweet, and very cleverly written and executed. -Nicholas Naioti, Owner and Manager at the Arbor Bar

7. Strange Fruit

I also like Strange Fruit from WFPL News for a black queer perspective on pop culture and current events. -Suzannah Kingsbury, Student at Northwestern University

8. Bad With Money With Gaby Dunn

Gaby Dunn is one of my favorite internet personalities. She’s interviewed a lot of pretty well-known people and isn’t afraid to ask the hard-hitting questions about money that most people avoid like the plague. -Samm Wechsler, Administrative Assistant at Massage by Mary
