My favorite podcasts about happiness and living a good life.

About a year ago when we moved from one side of town to the other my commute went from 15 minutes to 30 minutes. A 30 minute commute really isn’t that long when compared to the national average but it’s all relative, right? I was worried about my longer commute time, hoping it wouldn’t be a total drag on my day (or life) or make me regret our move.

Enter podcasts. And the miracle that is Bluetooth.

I got a new (used) car this past fall with built in Bluetooth. I theoretically knew what Bluetooth was before I got this car but didn’t ever really understand how nice of a feature it was. I discovered it accidentally when I hopped in the car and my iTunes playlist I had listened to earlier, with headphones during a run, starting playing over my car’s speakers. Magic!

I started listening to podcasts on my commutes to and from work and it has made a huge difference. No more annoying morning DJs. I felt like a multi-tasking, productive genius by the time I got to work.

Here are my go-to podcasts related to living an awesome life:

Happier with Gretchen Rubin
The One You Feed podcast
The Lively Show
The Smart Passive Income podcast

Here are some of my other favorites on a variety of subjects:

HBR IdeaCast
Startup Podcast
Reply All
Call Your Girlfriend
Freakanomics
Invisibilia
Planet Money
The Moth Podcast

These are the podcasts for which I’m willing to give up precious storage space on my phone by subscribing and downloading them automatically. There are a few others on my list currently that I’m trying out. I’ll update this post as I figure out new favorites!
