What Tarbish Is Currently Diggin': Podcasts!
Every so often, we at Tarbish find ourselves all talking about the same things that we have been loving and cannot keep ourselves away from. We all know that as Tarbish squad members, you probably feel pretty similarly to us in that when you find something you love you want to share it with everyone! Thus, here on The Tarbish Take, in our segment “What Tarbish is Currently Diggin’”, we will do just that, focus on something that we are totally obsessing over! Hopefully we can help you discover your new fave or leave a comment below and help us find something we should check out!
Podcasts have been around forever, but we have rediscovered our love for them this month! Not sure if its the change of seasons or just feeling that weird slump at the moment, but gaining some key advice and productively distracting ourselves through podcasts has been our way of helping us keep our sanity and just feel good about life. Personally, I used to think that I was a visual learner, that unless I was reading the words right in front of me, it wouldn’t sink in. There is something about hearing a strangers voice dole out some sage advice or retelling a hilarious story that we really connect with. Podcasts are our new alternative to listening to background music and we have found makes us overall feel more productive and inspired.
Here are some of our picks for podcasts, mainly inspired by our entrepreneurial, female team. (Side note: we listen to all these on the Overcast app)
The Life Coach School Podcast with Brooke Castillo
Brooke Castillo feels like our virtual mentor when we need that extra push or motivation to get sh*t done! She breaks down so many high and low aspects of life and explains them in an easy, relatable way. As an emerging brand and business, we get super inspired by Brooke and this podcast makes us feel like we can conquer anything that we put our minds to. We really find something we love in every episode, but especially love #180: Lessons from My Business.
At Home With...
Lily Pebbles and Anna Newton are two of our favorite lifestyle bloggers (and definitely check out their YouTube channels for even more inspiration!) and so when they announced their podcast earlier this year we were soooo excited about it! Each week they go through the homes of different female creatives (from huge editors to skincare founders) and talk about their lives. We love their down-to-earth, hilarious personalities and how calm, cool, and collected they stay while talking to some of the biggest names in the creative world.
Crash On My Couch
Like its name, this podcast literally makes us feel like we’re hanging out with two friends at home. Arden Rose and Will Darbyshire are a couple that cover everything from relationships to conspiracy theories to treasure hunting with side tangents that keep us laughing and nodding our heads along with them. They are both so relatable, humble, and hilarious that this podcast flies by every time we listen to it. We love this podcast just for its easy listening that spans so many different topics that you would cover with your closest friends.
Sophia Amoruso is someone we have had the biggest girl crush on since her early years forming Nasty Gal, one of the biggest e-commerce start-ups of all time. Since stepping away from Nasty Gal, Amoruso has expanded into her new empire, Girlboss Media, which includes the Girlboss podcast. Every week Amoruso interviews a Girlboss and talks about how they got their start, where they are now, and everything in-between. We love that Amoruso asks all the pressing questions that we all wonder, but are too afraid to ask, in an honest and open conversation that shows us that even our idols had their start somewhere.
How I Built This with Guy Raz
In this super popular podcast, Guy Raz interviews everyone and anyone from some of the biggest, most well-known companies in the world. Its such an inspiring and humbling podcast for really anyone, but especially those of us with an entrepreneurial spirit. Raz has an open conversation with these founders from the beginning of their journey, how they built their empire, their struggles, and their successes. We love learning from other peoples journeys and stories and seeing how some of our favorite brands were built.
(Pro tip: We especially love Sara Blakely's episode)
Affirmation Pod with Josie Ong
We love this podcast for waking up in the morning and starting our day off on a positive note. Ong covers all different types of situations, topics, and affirmations to help you understand, acknowledge, and get through anything. We also find this podcast helpful if we’re struggling through the day or as a way to reflect at the end of the day. Basically, whatever time of day or however you’re feeling, good or bad, Ong is our go-to girl.
