This last six weeks have been a whirlwind of production: press checking, lining, tying, stuffing, wax sealing. Just in the last 5 days, my fantastic assistant Cara and I got 6 HUGE jobs out the door. I can't wait to share them with you! (but let's let their guests receive them first) This week I'm out of the office, road tripping again, this time to North Carolina, where we'll visit family from the west to the beach. What do lining envelopes and road trips have in common? Podcasts! At least for me. They are the perfect thing to listen to when your mind is not otherwise engaged. I'm completely addicted. It's become sort of a problem- my phone can't hold anymore- as this is by far my favorite way to learn about EVERYTHING, from business to spanish; health to marketing. Let me share my favorites, in order of discovery. (and , that's the thing with podcasts, as you listen, you get exposed to more, as many are interview style. Someone interesting gets interviewed, and POOF, you have another podcast to listen to). My first love: THIS AMERICAN LIFE. This one has it's own app, which is great- you can access every show since their inception 20 years ago. This should be grouped with it's NPR sisters, Fresh Air, of course, great interviews, and Invisibilia, another interesting story telling podcast.
Then, probably the podcasts I look most forward to, and when they are all in season, come out on Thursdays. After The Jump is Grace Bonney of Design Sponge, and is filled with interviews and great information about being a small business owner. You will definitely fall down a rabbit hole once you find her on Heritage Radio. This was really the podcast that started my current obsession, as it introduced me to The Lively Show last spring. The Lively Show is a show really close to my heart. You will Love Jess Lively! Her show has changed my life. You must listen. Another Jessica, this one Jessica Murnane of One Part Plant, has fantastic, real life interviews with influencers on One Part Podcast, and you will love her style! Check her out.
I do have MANY more favorites, but I have to get on the road! Tell me some you like- I'm always looking for more. If you're not following me on instagram, please head over there and follow along while we're on the road.
