It is difficult to come up with a short list of the best podcasts. These are my top 5 podcasts of 2019 (so far). This list is not based on download statistics or a popular vote. It is my personal list and is not in order of preference. This list may change over time as I discover new podcasts.
The BEST Podcasts of the year so far.
The School of Podcasting
The School of Podcasting, with Dave Jackson, is the longest-running podcast about podcasting. Dave hasn’t missed a weekly episode since 2005. This show is entertaining and informative. The School of Podcasting is a variety show format show. Dave always brings it when he turns on the microphone for the SOP show.
Vinnie Tortorich rants about diet and fitness with expert guests each week on Fitness Confidential. Vinnie is the creator of NSNG (no sugar no grains) and author of the best-selling book, Fitness Confidential. Fitness Confidential uses the interview podcast format. He doesn’t pull any punches and brings his authentic no holds barred character to every episode.
The James Altucher Show
A good interview show where James goes on a deep dive conversation with each guest. His interviews feature well-researched questions and he seems to know everything about his guests before the interview. An entertaining and informative show.
The Cliff Ravenscraft Show
It has been fascinating to follow Cliff’s entrepreneurial journey as he authentically shares everything along the way. Cliff’s show is focused on personal development, helping people discover what they were put on this earth to do. Cliff uses the monolog/solo format for his show.
