We’re obsessed with podcasts, we binge on them, thrive on them and can’t get enough of them. We’ve even covered our favourite podcast series before. This is podcast blog 2.0 which is frankly way more in-depth!
These are the individual podcast episodes we listen to often - more than once and usually more than twice! Read on to add a pile of great listens to your list.
1. Your Creative Start - #22 and# 23 - Money Management series with Cash.
We loved this two-part series so much that we even wrote this blog post about it. Money is often quite an intimidating thing, especially when you’re thinking about starting a business! There’s so many things to start thinking about - tax, pricing, retirement funds…yada yada yada. These podcasts from Jaharn and Chelsea stop made us calm down, stop freaking about money, and start making it work for us. It’s amazing how much easier it all seems once your money mindset changes.

2. Stop, Collaborate and Listen - #3 Humanising your brand with Bonjoro
We are all about humanising brands through personality and authenticity. Sometimes it feels like companies forget that at the end of the day we’re just people talking to people, ya know? This podcast with Jess and Matt is all about adding that little extra touch that will delight your customers, giving you a much better first impression. It’s little details that take you from ‘customer satisfaction’ to ‘customer mind blowing.’ They use Bonjoro as an example but it’s totally applicable to any way you can connect with your customer and show you are human.
Fav quote “It’s showing that I’m willing to take time with every single customer. That is turning my customers into higher converters and also bigger advocates.”

3. Oprah’s Super Soul Conversations - #50 and #51 - Life’s calling series with Elizabeth Gilbert
First of all, Oprah. Second of all, this dual episode is what gave Alarice that final push to go and live in Bali for three months, and run Brand Babes Studio from her villa. This podcast with Oprah and Liz talks about finding your purpose, dealing with some of the less fun parts of transformation and advice on how to go follow your own calling. It’s pretty much ‘eat, pray, love’ only better and quicker!
