5 Favorite Podcasts for Fun and Business

We have to share our 5 favorite podcasts for fun and business. We had such an awesome time during our Idea Factory, Jelly! Chattanooga event sharing a quick fly over experience with podcasting. Wish you could have attended the live event? Well, here are some highlights.

What’s a podcast? It’s a digital audio file made available on the Internet for listening.


If you’re looking for an alternative to listening to music, try a podcast. You’ll be entertained. You’ll learn all kinds of things. You’ll get inspired! Pick a topic. There probably is a podcast about it.

Many podcasts can be heard through iTunes podcasts. I use the Podcast Republic app on my Samsung phone. Our five favorite podcasts for fun and business can be heard through both iTunes and Podcast Republic in addition to going directly to the web pages. We’ve linked to the web pages for our blog post so it doesn’t matter whether you are Mac, PC, or mobile. Just click to choose an episode and listen.

Some podcasts are just a few minutes, some are an hour. The great thing is you can stop the episode and pick up where you left off. We had a hard time trying to decide which podcasts we liked the most, so we listed them in alphabetical order. Happy listening!
