Awesome creator podcasts
Whenever I am doing chores or walking my dog, I am listening to podcasts. They have been my favorite source of education and entertainment for the last decade. Right now, I am subscribed to 110 podcasts across genres like tech, business, music, and video games.
I particularly enjoy the format of “founders talking about their businesses”. These are usually done by individuals or friends who update each other on their progress. In each episode, these founders share the challenges they are facing on their journey.
It is fascinating to follow them as they “work in public”. The hosts share details of their professional lives you don’t normally hear. Following their path to making a living on their own terms is fascinating. It shows you that this kind of work doesn’t come easy to others either. These podcasts make me feel like it is okay to try many paths and fail repeatedly until something works.
Of the podcasts following this format, these are the ones I am subscribed to (and caught up on) right now. I can 100% recommend you check them out if those kinds of conversations are your jam.
