My Top 5 Podcasts For Commuting

My Top 5 Podcasts For Commuting


If you’re like me where you can only listen to so much music before you want something that engages you, or if you simply want to spice up your commute game, this article is for you! Sifting through various podcasts, I’ll be upfront to say that I tend to get bored of most podcasts and may veer off after 1 or 2 episodes. However, in the past year or so, I’ve given a handful a try and ended up falling in love with them. Fair warning that all of these, for the most part, revolve around personal growth, entrepreneurial thinking, or personal health. Here are my top 5 podcasts for commuting.

1. Impact Theory with Tom Bilyeu

“Make it your daily obsession to make the most of your potential.”

-Tom Bilyeu

Ever since seeing snippets or motivational compilations on YouTube, Impact Theory has been one of my favorite podcasts. Focusing on business, personal growth and a positive mindset, Tom Bilyeu hosts some of the most renowned and intelligent individuals to bring you content from various backgrounds and industries. If you head to their site’s About page, their mission is “to pull people out of the Matrix, at scale, by giving them an empowering mindset”.From interviewing Les Brown, and Ray Dalio, to celebs like Steve Aoki and Tony Hawk, Bilyeu conveys a versatile knowledge plethora for his viewers. If you like to better your mentality and most importantly, yourself, give this podcast a listen.

2. Masters of Scale with Reid Hoffman

“An entrepreneur is someone who jumps off a cliff, and builds a plane on his way down.” Reid Hoffman

-Reid Hoffman

With a passion on starting a personal fitness brand as well as graduating with an Entrepreneurship degree, you could say entrepreneurial and growth thinking is “pretty cool” to me. With host Reid Hoffman – LinkedIn cofounder – at your ears, listeners get valuable startup advice from CEOs and founders from various ventures and industries. You’ll be able to indulge on the stories and strategies that helped them build their organization, as well as the struggles and failures they had to endure through. Guests have included the founders of Starbucks, Dropbox, Spotify, and much more. If you have a vision to start up a business or enjoy listening to the inception and growth of an organization, this podcast is for you.

3. Mindvalley

Outside the rules of physics, outside the rules of law, all other rules are meant to be challenged.

-Vishen Lakhiani

Ever since I uncovered Vishen Lakhiani and his organization Mindvalley just this past December, I must have watched every episode except a handful. If, like Impact Theory, you cherish self-improvement and personal growth focused teachings, this podcast is for you. From dissecting the real world around you, to teaching you how to turn anxiety and shyness into meaningful connection, Vishen’s podcast delivers the ‘feels’. Meditation and mind connection is very prevalent in this podcast as well which I enjoy as it brings a different perspective to play. I personally can say, that I have taken away the most real-time application traits from this podcast than any I’ve ever listened to. Give it a listen and let me know what you think!

4. The Gary Vee Audio Experience

“The best marketing strategy ever: care.”

-Gary Vee

If you want a podcast that delivers an ensemble of entrepreneurial thinking, self development and an ecstatic “no bullsh*t” attitude, then Gary Vaynerchuk is for you. Probably being the only podcast host I know that curses like no tomorrow, Gary Vaynerchuk, or Gary Vee for short, employs a full-fledged blatant and straight to the point mentality. He tries to get listeners to stop making excuses and “just get up and do it”. His podcast revolves around keynote speeches, segments from his various video series, as well as interviews and fireside chats he’s done. Subjects cover marketing/business talk, self improvement, personal growth and building a positive mindset. This one is a must; even if you’re not into the given topics.

5. Mind Pump: Raw Fitness Truth

This one is more personal as it relates more to fitness and health. However, I would urge everyone to give this podcast a shot. While the name may come off scary to some, it is what it says it is; pure unfiltered fitness and health truth. The podcast is run by 3 hosts Sal Di Stefano, Adam Schafer, & Justin Andrews, who are all certified trainers that give their knowledge and experience in an array of topics. These can include general health, nutrition, the relation on mind and muscle, and my favorite, debunking famous fitness and health mythology. I’ve been listening to these guys for almost a year now and even as a trainer myself, I continue to learn new grasping details. Even if you are not a hardcore fitness enthusiast, I’d definitely recommend watching an episode or two as you could definitely take something away for your personal life.
