What are some of your favorite podcasts to listen to in the morning?


Here’s an eclectic mix of podcasts I like listening to:

  • BBC’s From Our Own Correspondent (an in-depth look at the stories behind the top news headlines around the world, told by BBC correspondents, journalists and writers in a captivating storytelling format; hosted by Kate Adie)
  • Optimize with Brian Johnson (condensed big ideas from the best books on optimal living and micro classes on how to apply these ideas; here’s where I get a lot of book recommendations, including most recently Seneca’s On the Shortness of Life)
  • Invisibilia (a show about invisible forces that affect and control human behavior: our ideas, beliefs, and emotions)
  • Intelligence Squared (the world’s leading forum for debate and intelligent discussion; I like the diversity of topics that are covered and that include Brexit, democracy, foreign intervention, capitalism, the art market, contemporary literature, feminism, events in the Middle East)
  • The Memory Palace (storytelling podcast about events from the past)
  • Middle East Analysis (podcast on events happening in the Middle East and North Africa regions; the main contributor is international lawyer and political advisor Dr. Harry Hagopian)
  • This Is Your Life with Michael Hyatt (a podcast dedicated to living a life with more passion, working with greater focus, and pursuing goals that give purpose and meaning to our lives)
