Entrepreneurs are always on the go, but that doesn’t mean we don’t have downtime. From transcontinental travel to your daily commute and from the treadmill time to bedtime, this collection of business podcasts and books for entrepreneurs is perfect to keep you entertained, educated and, most of all, inspired.
Team Alice also got in the recommendations game with this list of our favorite 2018 podcasts that we think you’ll love, too.
Here are some of our favorites:
Podcast: Slow Burn
Suggested by: Courtenay Siegfried, VP of Communications, Alice (If you can’t find the right words, she’s your gal.)
I’m currently obsessed with Slow Burn, a podcast digging deep into the soap opera dish of Watergate, which satisfies both my political and tabloid cravings.
Podcast: True Crime Obsessed
Suggested by: Sara Staffaroni, Content Manager, Alice (She loves words as much as she loves dogs…which is A LOT!)
This is the perfect podcast for anyone who is a true crime junkie and looking for a good laugh. The hilarious co-hosts of this podcast take you through some of the most popular (and often bizarre) true crime documentaries. I listen to True Crime Obsessed while commuting to work, and it makes the time fly.
Podcast: The Observatory
Suggested by: Kate Muelle, Lead Designer, Alice (She’s better known among her peers as the Queen of Pixels.)
Michael Bierut and Jessica Helfand take on current events from a designer’s point of view. They’re blunt, thoughtful and funny — it makes me feel like I’m back in art school, talking about both the history of design and where it has to go next, based on what’s happening in the world.
Podcast: How I Built This
Suggested by: Sandra Crawford, Event Coordinator, Alice (If anyone could get a real unicorn to attend your event, it would be her.)
I love hearing about entrepreneurs who went from zero to a million (or more!) and what they had to face along their journey. These amazing tales from founders about overcoming obstacles and growing their companies inspire me and keep my commute interesting.
Podcast: World News Tonight With David Muir
Suggested by Jillian Benvenuti, Associate, Alice (She wears many hats at Alice, and they all look fabulous on her!)
My never miss is World News Tonight with David Muir. When I can’t catch his episode or forget to set my DVR, I listen to the podcast version. I’m a news junkie who thrives on being informed.
Podcast: Super Soul Sunday
Suggested by Sarah Engel, VP of Customer Experience, Alice (She’s our resident Customer Love Doctor.)
These interviews with thought-leaders, spiritual gurus, authors and entrepreneurs will inspire you to live your best life and seek fulfillment through wisdom from the greats, like Deepok Chopra, Eckhart Tolle and others. It feels good and is really motivational! Oprah’s book summarizing many quotes from these sessions is also a great soulful read.
