Episode 095 How to Cultivate a Positive Vibe with Podcasts

If you want to have a positive feeling about you you need to cultivate it.  You can't simply soak up all the negative, vapid noise that pollutes the airwaves.  You have to go out and select the things to listen to that will add to your positivity and peace of mind.

In order to be the best you can be you need to make sure each day has you:

  • Learning
  • Laughing
  • Finding peace
  • Being introspective

Do you want to know the best way to achieve all four?  That's easy, podcasts.

I am about to show my age kids.  There used to be nothing but radio to listen to when you were in your car.  Then came 8-track tapes, cassette tapes and eventually CD's.  Now there is none of that, but there still are things to listen to in your car.  Better yet, you can listen absolutely anywhere.  The best thing is that you can choose what to listen to.

Of course you can listen to music (without commercials!) or you can listen to literally ten of thousands of podcasts that can help you grow.

What is a podcast?  Let me pull out a pithy definition online.


a digital audio file made available on the Internet for downloading to a computer or portable media player, typically available as a series.

So what can you learn on a podcast?  How about everything. There are podcasts that cover anything from crocheting to world politics, comedy to learning a language.

You can be entertained or learn, or best of all, both!

Today I want to demonstrate how I use my drive and wait time for something productive.  I want to share with you the top four podcasts I listen to as well as the rest of my playlist.

I don't receive anything from any of these podcasters for letting you know about their great shows.  In fact, none of them know I am letting you know about their shows.  However, I will let them know how much they help me
