my top 6 favorite podcasts

I've had this post saved in my drafts for some time, however, in between moving twice in two months, two kiddo's birthdays and work, it somehow kept getting pushed to the back of blogging.
The good news is that I finally got it done, and on a Monday, no less. So, here you go!

I love podcasts. That is not to be confused with that I listen to a lot of podcasts since the number that I listen to is relatively small. Now that we live within a short drive of everything I don't find that I have as much time to listen as I did when I had a 2-hour drive down from CT to visit family every week or so. Anyway, I still listen to my favorites when walking, or doing the housework, and here's a list of them (I even polled on Instagram and got some recommendations from followers as well!).

Here is a short list of my six all-time top favorite podcasts.
  • Fountains of Carrots. I've talked about Haley for years and have been following her long before she wrote a book, or began a podcast. She is a fellow kindred spirit and loves reading as much as I do. 
  • Outnumbered. Audrey and Bonnie talk about life with big families and offer insight into how to do it all (or reasons to not even try to!). They also have an interview with one of my other favorites, Janssen, of Everyday Reading!  
  • Voices of Your Village Podcast. A fellow Vermonter (well, before I moved), Alyssa talks all about relationships; with our children, with our partners, and all the life happenings that affect us in small and big ways. This is very much stuff that aligns my gentle parenting philosophy. 
  • Closet Moms. This is my sister-in-law, Ashley, and a friend of hers. If you want to hear some fun and real mom talk, they have it! They talk about life before kids and after kids, and everything in between. 
  • Live Free Creative. I talk all the time about Miranda's podcast, so I'm sure it's no surprise that it's on this list. She is so inspiring and talks about how having less stuff leads to more adventure and living a more fulfilling life.
  • Happier Podcast. You all know how much I love Gretchen. She has such great things to say, and I find her so inspiring. I don't listen to her podcast every week, but I do love to listen on occasion.
