I am more than the sum total of the religious podcasts I listen to. There are other podcasts too. *chuckles* That makes the sum total.
They’re good, and I think you’ll like them.
I used to be a runner, and I enjoyed it a lot. I still lift weights. These podcasts were in my rotation.
- Diz Runs—host Denny Krahe gives running advice with a bit of sarcasm and wit.
- Running for Real—Tina Muir hosts, and it’s a bit more holistic.
- Run to the Top—different coaches giving different running advice. It’s like magazine articles being read to you with occasional interviews.
- The Dan John Podcast—the dude is a renaissance man of fitness, and people send him questions that he answers on health and fitness. I reviewed his book from Dad to Grad. Of the four podcasts I had to pick from, I chose this as the most recommended.
I like history, especially in story format with some behind-the-scenes stuff.
- Dan Carlin’s Hardcore History—the history behind the history. Dan takes a topic (currently Japan in WWII) and talks about it for literally a day. Seriously, each podcast is over three hours and part of a series. Good for road trips.
- 5 Minutes in Church History—the opposite of the previous podcast in length. It was recommended by a friend and is only five minutes. Earlier this year, they covered Augustine. Its tagline is: This is our family history.
- Jocko Unraveling—this podcast is like a shorter version of Hardcore History. Jocko actually likes that podcast. Jocko’s podcast, co-hosted with Darryl Cooper, covers the recent history and past history. Like Sadaam Hussein and the Iraq War and the links to the Cold War. Their goal is to show how situations unraveled to pop off these historical events. Like the often-repeated yet never-heeded phrase, those who don’t know history are doomed to repeat it.
I’m a big fan of self-improvement podcasts.
- Jocko Podcast—Jocko, retired Navy SEAL who I mentioned above and often review, and Echo Charles discuss discipline and leadership in business, war, relationships, and everyday life. Interviews and going through different books. They run long. I listen to select ones of this one.
- The Art of Manliness—Brett McKay interviews different people on topics to help make you a better, more well-rounded man. It hits twice a week, and I usually listen to all of them.
- The Tim Ferriss Show—Tim talks to successful people and tries to reverse engineer what makes them successful. The topics and people are varied but hit and miss for me. He’s covering a lot about psychedelics now.
These are some of the podcasts I like to listen to. I’m constantly stuffing my head with as much information as I can. So if you see one you like, give it a shot.
