Favorite Podcasts

Happy Wednesday, friends!

I have been obsessed with podcasts for about the past year or so. I still love listening to music in the car, at work, or while cooking dinner…but podcasts have been such a fun thing to add to my runs (and walks, too!), especially the long ones. Today I’m sharing 5 of my favorite podcasts, and I hope you’ll enjoy them!

I’d love to know if you’ve got any favorite podcasts that you’d recommend for running or just for life in general – I’m always looking for something new! If so, please share in the comments section. 🙂

The Happy Hour with Jamie Ivey

Jamie’s podcast has to be hands down, my all-time favorite, ever, ever, ever. I’ve been listening since the beginning and have been hooked since day one! On the Happy Hour, she sits down with girlfriends from all over the world, doing all sorts of different things – and just chats with them about the big things in life, the little things in life, and everything in between. It really is just like eavesdropping on someone’s happy hour. The episodes are always encouraging, upbeat, positive, and eye-opening. There are so many women on the show who are at a different life stage than I am or who have experienced things beyond my wildest dreams (like living in Africa, adopting as a single mom, starring on television, marrying a football player)…so it’s really fun to hear about other people’s experiences. This podcast really makes runs fly by because it just feels like hanging out with girlfriends for an hour. Where did those miles go?

Chris Brown’s True Stewardship

If you know me and my husband at all – you know Chris Brown is our favorite. We’ve been listening for over a year and met Chris at a conference in LA a few months ago. His radio show helped us to get out (and stay out!) of debt and overall, he’s changed the entire way that I think about stewardship and view money. This podcast has been a tremendous blessing to our little family and the 30 minute episodes are great doses encouragement for shorter runs. Bonus: he’s a marathoner, too! 🙂

There’s a new episode every weekday – start listening!

Marathon Training Academy

Trevor and Angie are seasoned marathoners and encouraging experts. Their advice, humor, and positivity really helped me on my first cycle of marathon training. I’ve gotten a few friends hooked on Marathon Training Academy already and I know you’ll love them too.

No Meat Athlete

I’m a new listener, but a big fan! Matt and Doug have shared wonderful advice, tips, and tricks that have helped me on my journey to transitioning to a fully vegan and plant-based diet. Their episodes always make me laugh and are the perfect length for most runs!

That Sounds Fun with Annie F. Downs


Another new favorite – somehow, I always end up both giggling and sobbing during most of her episodes. Especially the one with Tim Shaw – whoosh. Pass the tissues. Her podcast enriches my day with faith-filled fun, and helps the miles fly by!

 Do you have any favorite podcasts? I’d love to try them!

Have a great Wednesday, my friends. May you (and your coffee) be strong today. 🙂


One thought on “Favorite Podcasts

  1. Great post! Thanks for sharing. Will certainly check out Happy Hour, as well as the others. For what it’s worth, I’m a tried and true fan of The Moth Podcasts. Real stories told by real people without notes.
