Podcasts I'm Loving These Days - Newbies and Oldies

I love me some podcasts. 
Like a lot.

I feel like I am constantly editing what I subscribe to and am always on the hunt for new ideas.

So here is just a sampling of what is new that I am enjoying (plus a couple favorites I cannot seem to do without!)

For The Love with Jen Hatmaker  I have seen this one recommended in a few Facebook groups I am in right now. Jen does a 4 guest series rotation on a different topic. She has a variety of guests and discussions on everything from race, culture/spirituality, creative entrepreneurs, speakers, writers, etc. This is one I enjoy having in the background while I am making dinner or getting ready for work in the morning.

The Gathering Place  A brand-new podcast put on by Blessed is She. This has such a cozy, homey feel for me. It is only about 30 minutes, but it feels deep and leaves me thinking about the topic without dragging on too long. I love the conversational style and flow, and Jenna and Beth (the co-hosts!) have a different guest on each time to talk on a topic together.

What Should I Read Next? Okay, confession time. I listened to a few episodes of this when it first came out, but I didn't love it. Sorry Anne. BUT, about month ago I gave it another try and this time I am hooked. What I love most?

The crazy, good book recommendations I get and such a wide variety! I lvoe Anne's blog and giving this podcast another try was a good call for me, not to mention my read list continues to grow and grow.

Abiding Together This is a new-ish one to me. I actually heard about the first time from Debbie Herbeck last Fall when she and a team of young adults led the Confirmation retreat at the parish I used to work at. 

Led by three women (two married and 1 religious sister), I like the conversational style of this one as well. My favorite episodes so far have been the book study they did over Lent on Henri Nouwen's Life of the Beloved
SO.good.


Here are two of my favorite oldies:

Up First This one is my companion as I stumble into my kitchen each morning, ground my coffee beans, and get my French Press moving and grooving. Usually around 10 or 12 minutes, it gives a brief recap of the last 24 hours of world news.

Since I do not have a TV (I actually love not having one!), this is a simple way for me to be aware of what the heck is going on in the world these days.

On Being THIS is the podcast I tell everyone and their brother about. I love it. Krista Tippett is the host and has a wide variety of guests and conversations: religion, science, art, creative dreamers and doers, poets, movers and shakers of culture, etc.
This one always leaves me thinking and helps broaden my perspective of people and the world.


What are your favorite newbie or oldie podcasts?

Listening to anything particular good these days?

  1. Thanks for the recommendations! I love podcasts a lot, but I haven't listened much to podcasts lately just because I'm spending less and less time with technology out (I listen to podcasts with my laptop). These sound like some great ones! I haven't listened to the Abiding Together Podcast, but I did subscribe to it so it hits my iTunes feed and eventually maybe I'll get around to it! One podcast that I've listened to off and on is Upside Down podcast, with blogger Shannon Evans-I really love how that podcast is a group of women with different faith backgrounds, and how they tend to talk about important topics that aren't always popular in mainstream circles. I think one of my favorite podcasts at the moment is the Catholic Feminist, because it covers a great range of topics and has pretty awesome guests on it. And I also really like the Simple Show, because it's short, sweet, and I enjoy the focus it has on simplicity.
