“Turn That Thing Up” Part 2 : Eclectic Boogaloo

Ready for another installment of great podcasts you should check out? Awesome!

(Thinking these are filler posts for when I’m behind schedule? Bosh.)

Here we go:

  1. The Art of Manliness Podcast: If you’re a guy and you’ve never checked out Brett McKay’s website, “The Art of Manliness,” you need to do so immediately.  If you’re a lady, and you’re worried that I’m recommending some sort of base, titillating, lad-mag type website, you should check it out, too, and prepare to be pleasantly surprised. The vibe behind AoM is more of a traditional, classic manliness with a modern twist. Virtues of responsibility, loyalty, hard work, and classic masculinity are lifted up throughout the content of the site. The podcast features McKay interviewing folks from various fields of interest that relate to AoM. Recent episodes include discussions of what it means to be “gifted,” the history of John Sullivan and boxing, discussions about fitness and health, and many other useful topics. Have I sold it enough? I really like AoM. You should too.
  2. The Dave Ramsey Show: Ramsey provides what every one of us needs–common sense advice about money, insurance, retirement, and debt. If you don’t know who Dave Ramsey is, just check him out. He’s sometimes often a bit snarky, and his advice will often go against the prevailing wisdom–but the “prevailing wisdom” is spread around by broke people with huge debt loads.  I wanna get debt-free, so Dave’s my guy.
  3. Quick and Dirty Tips: Despite the scandalous-sounding name, this network of podcasts provides a lot of useful information in bite-sized portions. I listen to the Get Fit Guy, the Nutrition Diva, and the Get-It-Done Guy, and have gained some useful stuff from each.
  4. This is Your Life: This podcast by NYT best-selling author Michael Hyatt is focused on leadership, personal growth, and building a “platform” for your writing/marketing. Sometimes his content is a little more inside-baseball than I need, but a lot of his general commentary on leadership and personal development has been good for me. If you’ve ever thought about growing in these areas, and especially if you want to grow your “brand” online, this is the guy to listen to.

That’s all I have time for now. Happy listening!
