Why You Should Listen to Podcasts

It’s no secret that Sugar Daddies love a smart, well-informed Sugar Baby. It’s also no secret that there are times when we want to do something productive while otherwise occupied with a mindless task. This is where podcasts come in handy as a way to become well-informed, productive member of society. Being an interesting conversationalist is essential in Sugar. Here’s why you should listen to podcasts, and a few to get you started.

Why You Should Listen to Podcasts

Ever experienced an awkward silence with a Sugar Daddy? Know fun facts and information is a great way to break the quiet. Having interesting things to say will draw your Sugar Daddy to you, and give him a reason to remember you. There is a podcast for everyone, about everything. The topics are produced to be interesting, even if you’re not an expert. So, which podcasts should you start with? Here are three of my favorites.

Pod Save America

Pod Save America is a relatively new podcast focusing on politics. The hosts, Jon Favreau, Jon Lovett, Dan Pfeiffer, and Tommy Vietor all worked for President Obama and definitely do not hide their political leanings. Despite the seriousness of the topics at hand, the podcast is incredibly easy to listen to.

The hosts have amazing chemistry and are constantly poking fun at each other.  They also do a great job of breaking down current events and what it all means, without sounding condescending—everything’s in “plain english.”  All in all, a great podcast for SBs who want to keep up with current events!  They post two podcasts per week, typically on Mondays and Thursdays, as well as special speaking engagements.

In the Limelight

I tune in to this podcast to get my weekly pop culture/celebrity fix.  Hosted by Vanity Fair senior writers Josh Duboff and Julie Miller, the podcast covers all things pop culture. They track Meghan Markle’s every movement and they did a special emergency podcast to cover Beyoncé’s pregnancy announcement.  

My favorite episode, however, is “Life is But a Dream Diary.” Josh and Julie open the podcast by breaking down three massive celebrity sightings they had while going out to dinner in LA. I don’t want to give too much away, but let’s just say that I’m definitely going to check out that restaurant the next time I’m in LA!  

One more thing that I love about this podcast is that it’s more intelligent and substantial than your average pop culture/celebrity gossip podcast. Definitely worth a listen!  A new episode of “In the Limelight” posts every Wednesday.

The MFCEO Project

This podcast is my go-to motivational podcast.  Yes, the acronym stands for “Mother-F*cking CEO” and also reflects the spicy language host Andy Frisella uses on the show.  So be warned—this podcast isn’t for those with sensitive ears!  

This one is all about being the best, most badass you that you can be. Yes, they talk about business, but everything is relatable back to your own life. As Andy says in the opener for every episode, “You are the CEO of you,” so there’s always something to learn here.

My favorite episode of this podcast is “No Such Thing As Magic.” The idea is that many people look at those who are successful and assume they’re a special kind of person that just got lucky—as if a magical success fairy somehow smiled down upon that person and waved her magic wand to make success easy for him or her. Andy shatters that way of thinking and instead insists that success is not magic—it is a formula.

“The MFCEO Project” posts new episodes every Tuesday and Thursday.  Tuesday episodes tend to be about an hour long, and typically feature a guest speaker.  Thursday episodes are usually no more than 10 minutes, and feature Andy riffing on a subject that’s intended to rekindle your fire and get you working towards your goals.

 

Happy listening!
