Community Talks! Vol. 1, ep. 4
Written by: Mariana Cañavera H.
Are you like me when it comes to listening to music every day because “one day without music is a day lost”? Well, to be honest, I don’t know if it will be a lost day without music, but at least music keeps my good vibes up!
However, sometimes I feel like I want to listen to something else. Most of the time when I go for a walk to relax my mind but keep moving the body, I choose to listen to podcasts instead of music. Even when I feel like I can’t sleep I choose to listen to a podcast and not relaxing music. Well, to be fair I like podcasts not just to relax, but because they are a way of learning from others. So here are 3 podcasts I think you should be listening to right now!
- A bit of Optimism – Simon Sinek
I love this podcast and the message around it. Put simply, every episode is an interview with people who have inspirational stories about love, leadership, life, business, happiness, and more. If you aren’t familiar with Simon Sinek, I hope you look for his inspirational speeches on how to be more optimistic about work and life. Trust me it is worth it!

- Think Fast, Talk Smart – Stanford GSB
In my opinion, one of the best skills someone can improve is their ability to communicate It doesn’t matter if it is for business or in life, when you know how to communicate your message clearly and effectively, misunderstandings can be avoided, and a lot can be achieved. This podcast is conducted by Matt Abrahams, a lecturer of Strategic Communication at Stanford Graduate School of Business. So, if you want to learn new communication techniques and be more effective in your communications, this podcast is for you.

- On Purpose with Jay Shetty – Jay Shetty
I couldn’t leave these top 3 podcasts without having one on mindfulness. But no worries, it is not a meditation podcast—it is more than that. In this podcast, Jay Shetty does explore the benefits of meditation and how it can positively impact your life, but that is not all. He talks about how we can be more present in our daily life, how to improve our relationships with ourselves and others, and shares with us some of the wisdom he has learned through his life experiences. Furthermore, in some episodes, he has conversations with other people sharing their experiences and learnings.

Do you listen to podcasts? What are your top 3?
thanks for sharing! I am usually the "I only listen to music" guy, but you made me curious to test the Think Fast, talk smart podcast1
Mariana, thank you so much for the inspiration, you've just added an extra task to my to-do list this weekend, ha! I am not usually a pod-listener but I'll give it a go. Do you think that never having been the radio-listening type failed to ever convert me to the pod-listening type?
The multiplicity of media available for messages continues to amaze me--there seems to be something for everyone these days. My husband is a fan of Simon Sinek and currently there are some of his books circulating at home. I have watched some recordings of his talks and found him an amazing speaker.0
