Podcasts Worth a Listen

The Ground Up Show– The host, Matt D’Avella, is a minimalist. He directed the film Minimalism. Matt has an incredible story that can improve almost everyone’s life. Even if you do not consider yourself to be a minimalist, the people Matt invites to his podcast have unique outlooks on life and how you should live. He sums up his podcast as “a weekly podcast that inspires creatives to make shit happen.” Honestly, there is no better way to describe it. The episodes are around an hour in length and the conversations vary depending on the guest. The one element that remains constant is Matt’s unique ability to encourage people to share their stories.

Hodinkee Radio– Discussing the world around watches, cars, design, influencers, and trends, Hodinkee Radio is a great way to start your day. The world of watches has some pretty incredible and interesting people. Listening to Hodinkee Radio you get to hear each person’s story on why they collect and what drew them to watches in the first place. The podcast is more than just watches though. The host Stephen Pulvirent does an incredible job including some traditions. Each guest is asked for a cultural recommendation at the end of the episode. The recommendations range from a good restaurant to try, to books, art, or fun things to do.

The Grey NATO– James and Jason started the podcast as a side gig. The Grey Nato is now a part of Hodinkee Radio. However, the content on this podcast is vastly different. These two talk about fast cars, cold dives, and a whole slew of other crazy cool things. The conversations can change quickly and often get extremely interesting. Since James and Jason have such different interests the show is always reading new topics and introducing new perspectives.

99% Invisible– Anything and everything that may have once crossed your mind is discussed on this podcast. Random topics, every couple of days are discussed in excruciating detail on the show. To quote 99% Invisible’s website, “Ever wonder how inflatable men came to be regular fixtures at used car lots? Curious about the origin of the fortune cookie? Want to know why Sigmund Freud opted for a couch over an armchair?” These are the types of topics that are discussed on the show. This is the perfect podcast to get your mind off of the stress of the day and improve your knowledge of some pretty unique categories at the same time.
