Endless Summer Playlist

Vol 5 | Endless Summer Playlist

It seems we’re now in the height of summer. Our days are spent getting up early and hitting the gym, to squeeze in the fun moments of margin. It means night swims, bonfires with friends on the beach, and walks at sunset. Outside of the heat it has become one of my favorite seasons. The days are long, things are a bit more laid back, and I love the rhythm it provides. In celebration of an endless summer vibe, we put together this little playlist. We hope it sets the perfect backdrop for workflows, afternoon adventures, and any roadtrip your summer might hold.

5 podcasts for a summer road trip

5 Podcasts for A Summer Road Trip

The first week of July is a significant mark for me. I’ve spent the past month traveling, and while fun. It has been an amazing to be back home and not dress out of a suitcase for a few days now. My last adventure of June was a solo road trip north. Our first stop was Portland and then we headed to our final destination, Seattle. It was my first road trip and I wanted to be prepared. After about two hours, music and dancing in the car doesn’t keep me nearly as alert as it should, so I opted to download a few podcasts that seem to do the trick. These are my five favorites and I can’t tell you how enjoyable they made the trip.

1. The Goal Digger Podcast with Jenna Kutcher

I discovered this podcast through some other creatives. Whether talking social media, systems, or small business, I couldn’t recommend this podcast enough. Each podcast has clear and easy calls to action that you can apply to your business. More than anything, after every episode I feel that I’ve invested my time well.

2. Freakanomics Radio

If you loved the documentary or the book, you will love Freakanomics radio. The relationships and correlations of data they find, humor applied, and nature of the show. After each episode, my curiosities and my mind is heightened in the best of ways.

3. Ted Talks Radio Hour

I love listening to these while I work. Ranging on topics from civic change to design, from wonder and dance, imagination, and innovation, TED Talks always inspire me to innovate, dream, and change the world.

4. Pursuit with Purpose

I’ve loved Melyssa Griffin and her blog for years. She offers so much free content and is ridiculously generous. (If you’re a blogger or creative entrepreneur, run to her website as fast as you can.) In her podcast, she interviews her mentors, business partners, and those she has learned from over the years. Rather than practical tips, she asks about their routines, motivations, and the why behind the businesses they have built. It’s a fascinating look at the processes behind legends in this industry.

5. Serial

If you love This American Life and are looking for something that has fiction and story at the center, try Serial. Each episode is a snippet into a mystery, unfolding and coming to a surprising conclusion at the end of each season. It will keep you on the edge of your toes listening and anyone in your car guessing who did what.

What are some of your favorite podcasts to listen to?

Vol 4: Rain & Remedies Playlist

There’s something about a rainy day in spring. The peaceful sound of the raindrops against the windows, and the fresh crispness of the air. We put on our coziest layers and make big pots of soup. Our April has been filled with rainy days and sometimes a great playlist can be the best remedy to getting things done when all you want to do is stay in bed. (It can be a big challenge when working from home.) We put together this playlist to embrace all that the last rainy days of spring have to offer.

Have an amazing weekend everyone!

Winter Nights and Fireplaces Playlist

We’re still in the middle of winter in NorCal and doesn’t seem to be leaving any time soon. Rather than fighting winter, I’m choosing to embrace it. The past two weeks I’ve been battling some serious sickness and have embraced the cozy nights and rest that have come with it. In honor of winter nights and cozy fireplaces, I put together this little playlist. This one is a bit more of a classic twist with modern takes on arrangements and jazz. Grab a blanket, make a fire, and enjoy.

Snow Capped Pines and Holiday Lights Playlist

The Christmas season is probably one of my favorites. My living room is glistening with colors of black, copper, and gold this season. I’ve modified the decor a bit from last year and am so excited to roll out the content within the next few weeks. (I have a knit wall hanging that is one of my most impressive DIYs to date!) I know some people have a love, hate relationship with Christmas music. Me? I love it! I usually like to scour my collections for music that feels classic, a bit of throwback, and throw in some tunes that don’t sound like your typical Christmas music.
