Podcasts are basically pre-recorded audio programs you can download. The great thing about podcasts is that you can download an episode and begin listening to it in just minutes either on your computer or portable listening device (iPod, Blackberry, etc). This means you can listen to them anytime, anywhere (eg while jogging, driving, working out or taking a walk).

Below are 5 of my favorite personal development podcasts. Enjoy!

1. Guy Finley

Guy is a best-selling author and well-known radio presenter. He speaks on a range of issues, including relationships, fear, addiction, stress/anxiety, peace, happiness, and freedom. These podcasts are guaranteed to stretch your mind.

2. Robin Sharma

Robin is one smooth talker – I love listening to his voice. He backs this up with some of the most inspiring, yet down-to-earth, advice you will come across. Whilst he doesn’t seem to record many new podcasts these days, there are 35 podcasts available free on his page.

3. Steve Pavlina

I was actually introduced to podcasting through Steve. Like Robin Sharma, Steve seems to have slowed down with recording new podcasts. That said, he has 20 podcasts available on his page and each of them is a goldmine of wisdom.

4. Awareness and Consciousness

The Awareness and Consciousness Podcast is dedicated to teaching self-awareness and how to live in
an emotional state of happiness. Gary has some wonderful insights and is very easy to listen to.

5. Patrick Mathieu’s Mindful Moment Podcast

Patrick’s podcast is a relatively new find. Anyone who read my last article Review: What’s Your Expiry Date? will be aware that Patrick has an inspiring and personal message to share. Patrick is a professional speaker, and this comes across in the quality of his delivery.
