Danny Recommends: Podcasts (part four)
Every so often we dip our toes into a series called Danny Recommends:, posts that tip you off to the stuff that I…you know. The recommendations might be products for use in your ministry, resources that will help you develop leaders around you, or just fun stuff that you need. Want. Whatever. I have a full list of recommended books and such over at the Reading List, but these posts will go into further detail. For other posts in the series, check out the link at the bottom.
The podcast train ain’t slowing down anytime soon. This is the fourth Danny Recommends: post I’ve written on podcasts, and podcasts were the topic that kicked off this series many moons ago. (Check out part one, part two, and part three.)
Here are ten of my new faves, and I’m linking them all via the Overcast app, because it’s the best podcast player out there:
The Anthropocene Reviewed. Author John Greene takes two topics per podcast and rates them on a five-star scale. (monthly)
At the Table with Patrick Lencioni. The GOAT of organizational behavior has a podcast?!? I’m new to this. But I’m catching up. (weekly)
Disney History Institute. If you like deep dives into Disney nerddom, this is your place. (weekly)
Experience This. Joey and Dan dissect the customer experience from various organizations. (weekly and seasonal)
Inside Trader Joe’s. Behind the scenes of the greatest grocery store on the planet. Fight me. (monthly)
The Intuitive Customer. A fascinating – and entertaining – take on customer behavior. (weekly)
REimagine. A podcast born out of a pandemic and led by a good friend, these ministry-focused episodes will make you…well…reimagine. (weekly)
Revisionist History. Malcolm Gladwell is a national treasure and retells stories you only think you know. (weekly and seasonal)
Ungeniused. Bite-sized episodes that cover the weirdest articles on Wikipedia. Perfect for those of us who just need a random factoid in our life. (bi-weekly)
Proud dad bonus: Speaker Box Talk. My oldest son Jacob is the Manager of Operations at a local Chick-fil-A, and runs one of the highest-performing drive throughs in the entire chain. He’s started a podcast for CFA operators, but I think you’ll find the leadership and logistics they discuss to be immensely helpful in your area of the world (I know I have). (Update: while the Speaker Box Talk podcast still lives, it doesn’t live publicly. CFA has folded it into a private channel for operators. That said, if you’re an operator, hit me up and I’ll point you in that direction.)
Disclaimer: FTC watchdogs will probably want to know that the podcasters listed / linked above did not ask for this endorsement, nor did they provide me with free swag in order to do so. I’m just a really satisfied fan who wants to let you know where you can hear some great information and entertainment. I only promote items that have benefitted me and that I believe will benefit you. So there.
