Going Scared with Jessica Honegger

going scared podcast

Jessica Honegger is the powerhouse behind Noonday Collection - a fashion line dedicated to social entrepreneurship and making a difference in the lives of women around the globe. I’ve been a Noonday fan for quite some time, and I love Jessica’s story and passion for her work.

The Going Scared Podcast highlights individuals who have faced fear in life situations and have gone scared. One of my favorite episodes is Episode 41 with Jessica Turner, author of “The Fringe Hours”. The Jessicas discuss “motherhood, entrepreneurship and creating space for the things that matter.”

Coffee + Crumbs

coffee and crumbs

Host Indiana Adams gets my vote for most favorite podcast voice! I love tuning in to her conversations with co-hosts Ashlee Gadd and April Hoss as they tackle all kinds of motherhood topics. I love the episodes titled “This Is How We Do:” where they dive into very specific topics and discuss how each of them approaches these things - everything from laundry to creativity to hospitality.

I’ve only really explored Season 3 up to this point, but these are my favorite episodes so far: Motherhood + Hospitality // Parenting for the Long Haul with Krista Gilbert // This is How We Do: Creativity // Conversations with Our Pre-Mom Selves.

Don’t Mom Alone

dont mom alone

Heather is a mama to four boys and wants to make sure moms know they don’t have to go at motherhood alone. She’s got some fantastic interviews that encourage and inspire for moms with kids of all ages. I really enjoyed Episode 232 “The Enneagram and Motherhood” with Suzanne Stabile.

BEMA

BEMA podcast

This one is a bit different and one that requires some extra attention and focus when listening, but when I have the time, I love it. I’ve started with Session 1, which is a walk-through of the Torah - or the first five books of the Bible. It’s a dive into the context and history of the Bible. I’ve learned so much from this even though I grew up reading the Bible all the time - the context and history is so important.

That Sounds Fun with Annie F. Downs

annie f downs podcast

Annie hosted the EnneaSummer 2019 on her podcast this summer, and I loved it all! Each episode focuses on a number on the Enneagram with input from Your Enneagram Coach, Beth McCord (who was also one of our podcast guests!). Annie invites two of her friends of that Enneagram number on the show, and they chat all things for that number. It’s so interesting, and a great way to get a picture of each of the nine types.

Happier with Gretchen Rubin

podcast

This is one of Kara’s top picks, and now that I’m reading about it, I want to tune in, too! “The #1 bestselling author of The Happiness Project and Better Than Before gets more personal than ever as she brings her practical, manageable advice about happiness and good habits to this lively, thought-provoking podcast.”

Real is the New Black

podcast review

This is another Kara favorite, and I am here for it! This one looks right up my alley, and I can’t wait to add it to my listening rotation. “After feeling annoyed and disappointed with the curated and phony lives on instagram, Matti Gresham decided it was time to bring the realness back to media. On RITNB, you'll get the raw and honest, sometimes serious, mostly funny version of a range of topics including but not limited to relationships, motherhood, reality tv, pop culture, Christianity, and more.”


Podcasts for some down time

simply whole moms

For the past two weeks - AKA the beginning of 2019, we’e been focusing on ways where we can RECOVER in this new year instead of bust our booties trying to “improve” ourselves. We want mamas to be kind to themselves and take some time to #simplyrecoverthisyear.

One of my favorite things to do when I have some free time is to turn on a podcast. I feel like there’s always something new to learn and/or just plain entertaining. We’ve put together some of our most favorite podcasts down below, And of course, Kara and I are both impartial to a little podcast called: Simply Whole Moms.

The Enneagram Journey with Suzanne Stabile

enneagram

The Enneagram Journey with Suzanne Stabile is one of my all time favorite Enneagram podcasts. Suzanne is a leading Enneagram expert, and she’s also a 2 (like me!) - I love this perspective from her as the host of the show. Episodes 26 and 43 are two of my favorite episodes to date.

Typology

enneagram type

Here’s another style of Enneagram podcast if you can’t get enough of learning about this! Ian Morgan Cron, co-author of The Road Back to You with Suzanne Stabile, interviews people from all walks of life who are using the Enneagram to transform their lives.

How I built this with Guy Raz

Guy interviews some of today’s greatest entrepreneurs and inventors, He is able to pull their stories out and share just how some of these companies: Whole Foods, Patagonia, and Instagram to name a few, got their start.

Unruffled by Janet Lansbury

unruffled

This is one that I love to turn on when it’s been one of “those” parenting days. Janet keeps her episodes short, sweet and to the point to help with a variety of parenting topics. She’s calm and collected while helping parents maintain their calm in the midst of chaos.

For the Love Podcast with Jen Hatmaker

podcast

Jen brings us some hilarious, heart-felt and informative series in her For the Love podcast. Two of my favorite series are: Series 8: For the Love of Exploring our Faith and Series 10: For the Love of Parenting. She’ll have you laughing and inspired all at the same time.

The Happy Hour with Jamie Ivey

Jamie interviews some of the coolest and greatest women around. Her goal is to invite you into their conversation and have a “happy hour” while you tune in. Topics range from light-hearteded to some heavier hitting topics.

The Balanced Bites Podcast

podcast

This podcast has been around for awhile, and it is hosted by two of the biggest girl bosses in the Paleo movement. They pretty much cover it all from food, to hormones, to body awareness, and how to get sleep as a mom. If you are looking to educate yourself about your own health this is a fun, informative way to do just that!

Skimm’d from the Couch

podcast

Do you get the easy to digest news emails from the theSkimm? Man those emails are the only thing that keep me from looking like a total idiot who doesn’t know what is going on in the world… oh and they are hilarious. Well the two girls who founded theSkimm started this podcast. They sit down with all kinds woman leaders and discuss the road to success.

Naptime Empires

podcast

Nikki offeres refreshingly honest conversations on the realities of parenthood and entrepreneurship. If you have ever had a dream you want to chase, or a business you want to make happen or you just want to be a better version of youself… this podcast is a good one.
