I listen to podcasts on the daily – they are my news, my inspiration, my education. Two years ago, I wrote about my favourite podcasts, and looking back, I still agree those are great podcasts, but I now subscribe to a whole new list of podcasts that I think are worth sharing.

Here are some of my favourites broken up into categories:

News & Learning

  • Hidden Brain – you’ll learn the theory behind so much of human behaviour, in an intriguing story-telling manner
  • Revisionist History – Malcolm Gladwell rocks my world with all he does, and often blows my mind with the findings in this podcast
  • The Current – to get all that Canadian news
  • The Daily – and for the American news


Birth & Being a Parent

  • 3 in 30 Takeaways for Moms – to the point and just as the title says, 3 quick lessons on a particular subject that will impact your parenting
  • The Birth Hour – I could listen to all these very different and very beautiful birth stories all day
  • Pregnancy Podcast – very textbook like in format, but it gives you all the facts


A Little Bit of Everything




Shock & Awe

  • Family Secrets with Dani Shapiro – you might binge listen to this one once you get going. Finding out your biological father is actually a Catholic Priest?…that’s the kind of stories you hear about in this podcast
  • Dirty John – this awful, and true story, is so sickening, yet I still feel like I now need to go watch the Netflix series
  • Dr. Death – another one that’s hard to listen to knowing there are humans like this in the world, but still, go listen…
  • The Dropout – and the list of shock and awe just keeps going



  • Our Hockey Life – you may spot me on Episode 13, and all their episodes give you a behind the scenes of hockey life and much more
  • Off Ice with Ida & Julie – two wives of the Nashville Predators talk hockey, family, and all that goes along with having a travelling spouse

Hope you find some new podcasts that make you want to hit “subscribe”!
