After overwhelming response from my Coach Skeds’ Summer Reads blog. I’ve decided to put together of my Top 10 Podcast Episodes.
What is a podcast exactly? Glad you asked…According to the Internet, a podcast is a digital audio file made available on the Internet for downloading to a computer or mobile device, typically available as a series, new installments of which can be received by subscribers automatically.
It can be a live recording of a broadcast radio show, stage show, panel interview, one on one interview, it can be scripted or unscripted, it can be 5 minutes or 3 and a half hours, covering every topic under the sun. It’s no surprise that my favorites are based around personal development, business and strength and conditioning.

Brute Strength: How Overcoming Your Fears will Fine Tune Your Training and Perfect Your Game – In this episode, Mike Cazayoux interivewed Tony Blauer (SPEAR System). The biggest take-away is the Fear Loop, and how to override your body’s natural “flight, fight, freeze, appease” response.

Bulletproof Radio: Minimalism Living a Richer Life With Less – In this episode, Dave Asprey interviews the Minimalists, they chat about the freedom of living a minimal lifestyle, and it’s definitely something that I aspire to.
“Failure is an Option”
Tim Ferriss Show: When to Quit – Quick stories of when to quit versus when to persist. I’ll be honest. This episode is near and dear to my heart because it aired the week I resigned from my full-time position in the ND Army National Guard.
TED Radio Hour: Failure is an Option – This episode is a collection of a number of TED speakers talking about the power failure.
The Bledsoe Show: The Psychology Behind Fear with Guy Ferdman – In this episode, Mike Bledsoe chats with Guy Ferdman about a lot of things…the biggest takeaway for me was the power of the events from a person’s early childhood and how that carries into their adulthood through patterning, and how to work to break that patterning in order to live a life of deep, meaningful connection and unconditional love.
Feed Me Fuel Me: Unlearning Our Parents and Owning What We Actually Believe with Anat Peri – In this episode, the Feed me Fuel me guys interview Anat Peri, she is a Transformational Coach with a ton of work under her belt. She runs a program, Training Camp for the Soul (TCS) that is based on teaching students to unlearn patterns they learned as kids. This is one of 3 interviews with Anat Peri that I listened to before signing up for Training Camp for the Soul (I’m currently in week 4 of 10 and the work is deep, and difficult, but it is helping me to evolve into a more authentic version of myself, there’s no doubt).
Tim Ferriss: Tony Robbins on How to Resolve Internal Conflict – Just like Oprah was #1 this is #1A. If you only pick 2 episodes to listen to, this should be one of them. Tony takes you through a 10 minute guided mediation to get your heart and your brain firing on same frequency through memory and gratitude. It’s super powerful, try it out and ENJOY!
