All I kept thinking was, “Why didn’t I build that?!”

TED Talks Daily
Are you a fan of the traditional TED Talks and TEDx videos? I love kicking back with a cup of coffee in the morning and watching the latest talks. I even shared my 10 favorite episodes in this blog post. But here’s the thing: While some talks are short and easy to watch in full before the kids wake up, there are longer ones that I often get pulled away from halfway through. Well, that’s where the TED Talks Daily podcast comes in! Every weekday, this feed brings you their latest talks in audio format. So, now you can enjoy the same intelligent and inspiring talks on the go.

To put it simply: The guy knows his stuff!

Mama Said Podcast
Embarrassing moments, sticky situations, and real-life parenting situations — this one is perfect for all the moms out there!
I first heard about the Mama Said podcast when I was asked to come on the show and share some tips for getting flexible in the kitchen and whipping up simple meals the whole family will crave. Let me tell you — the hosts are hilarious! Actress Jamie-Lynn Sigler and musician Jenna Parris will have you LOLing in no time, as they share relatable stories and offer up savvy advice.
Have you ever heard of bulletproof coffee (AKA brewed coffee blended with grass-fed butter and MCT oil)? Chances are the answer is yes! Now, the founder of Bulletproof Coffee and The Bulletproof Diet, Dave Asprey, is sharing health inspo on the regular through his podcast, Bulletproof Radio.
The main focus of this show is to answer the question: “What are the simplest things you can do to be better at everything?” Dave and a handful of guests (doctors, medical researchers, authors, etc.) share their best advice to upgrade your biochemistry, your body, and your mind so they work in unison. I must admit: I don’t agree with everything he says. But, I do find his talks eye-opening and thought-provoking. It’s worth a listen!
Throughout the years, I’ve guest-starred on dozens of podcasts. I’ve been interviewed about everything from raising healthy kids to how I run a flexible business. In case you missed it, here are a few of my favorite interviews:
