I’m a bit of a podcast junkie and have several that I like to check in with from time to time. When I’m not with boys I usually have ear buds in listening to podcast or the occasional audio book (I just finished the audio version of “Where’d You Go Bernadette” so so good!). Having a little audio entertainment is the perfect fit for the season I’m in as I’m able to be productive during those kid moments while still getting a bit of a mental escape.
In a previous post (you can find it here) I shared my favorite variety podcast. There’s a little bit of something for everyone on that list but today I want to focus on some of my favorites that are centered around motherhood.
Most of these podcast are formatted very closely (host + co host + guest being interviewed on various topics). I’m not going to go into too much detail about each podcast since they are so similar format wise but I will note the ones that are a touch different in my description below.
Coffee + Crumbs:
Bloggers and now podcasters these mamas are so fun to listen to as they chime in on different topics centered around motherhood and lifestyle. I always feel like I’m sitting with some of my girlfriends having a chat when I tune in. Their honesty and realness about topics such as miscarriage, marriage and motherhood make this one of my most favorite motherhood podcast.
The Longest Shortest Time:
I love the variety of the topics on this podcast from family planning, to kids views on politics to how friendships change when babies are born. If you love to learn about diversity in families and the different paths people take to become parents I have a feeling you’ll love this podcast as much as I do.
The Thrifty Little Mom:
A variety of topics all with a thriftiness in mind.
Motherhood in Hollywood:
This is a bit hard for me to explain but let me try…..
Heather the host interviews people in “the business” such as musicians, reality stars, actresses to name a few. During their interviews they chat about the ins and outs of the business and share how they are handling motherhood. I really enjoyed the recent interview with Lisa Loeb. I love her yet I had no idea she’s now writing children’s music or that she’s from Dallas. Ummm I live in Dallas HOW DID I NOT KNOW THAT!?! The host is a bit chatty in the begging but I promise the interviews are fun and interesting.
I love Melanie’s fun personality!
This is one I could have saved for my parenting podcast list but it really helps on my hard mama days so I figured I would toss it in with the motherhood list. Janet’s podcasts are short and to the point. I love hearing what she has to stay about the different struggles in parenting. A viewer writes in a parenting question and Janet dives deep into ways to support. It’s usually on those days that I’m struggling to find patients for the boys that I tune into this podcast. Janet’s voice is so calm and her views on parenting are just what I need to hear on those rough mama days.
This is the part where I’m going to start getting a bit redundant if I continue with podcast descriptions (remember what I mentioned above about similar formatting).
I will say that each of the podcast below bring their our flair and personality which is why I so enjoy listening to them but as far as formatting (host, co host, occasional guest) the post cast below are delivered in a similar style.
The Mom Hour:
Host Megan and Sarah are so fun. I find myself binge listening to this one from time to time.
I always enjoy her guest who are usually mamas doing awesome things through motherhood!
That was some list huh?
I sure hope you found a few new to you podcast. f you haven’t seen my other podcast post be sure to check that out as there’s a little something for everyone on that list.
