Imagine cozying up with a cup of your favorite brew, or maybe you're on your daily walk, waiting for that next dose of wisdom and entertainment.

If you're a creator, or just a fan of great content, chances are you're thinking of your favorite podcast.

You hit play and... boom! You're transported to another world.

Podcasts are the perfect way to tune out the world and immerse yourself in a new story or conversation. And as creators, we know that podcasts are a great way to learn new things, stay inspired, and get motivated.

Recently we caught up with four fantastic creators, each with their unique perspectives, to find out what's been playing in their earbuds lately.

Are you ready for some insider recommendations?

Inside Lev's Headphones

Lev began his journey in media way before the digital marketing era, when the term "podcasting" was not popular. He is the head of content at Fame, podcast host, coach, writer, and voice actor.

We asked Lev about his podcast preferences, and here's what he had to say:

“I'm really proud of the work Fame has done recently with 'The Biotech Startups Podcast.' We've collaborated with Excedr to make the podcast a huge success, filled with useful and insightful information for people working in the biotech startup space.

Lately, I've been really into 'Beyond the Screen: An IONOS Podcast.' They've been having some truly interesting conversations about UX and user-centered design. With my design background, UX theory is always on my mind!

I cannot emphasize enough how much I appreciate 'Million Dollar Mastermind with Larry Weidel.' I've learned more about finances and business relationships from that one podcast than just about anything else in the last 20 years.

'Product Thinking with Melissa Perri' is a fantastic product management podcast. Melissa is excellent at solving real-world product problems in a way that makes complete sense to anyone listening.

Oh, and 'Design Your Life And Business: The Podcast For Leaders'—I'm a sucker for founder's stories, so that podcast is incredibly inspiring to me!”

What's on Ian's Playlist?

Ian Johnson is a founder, writer, creator and executive brand coach. While his fingerprints are on global ventures, he runs the Founding in Public newsletter.

Ian has curated a fantastic playlist of podcasts for both work and leisure.

His go-to podcasts for work includes:

  • Acquired with Ben Gilbert and David Rosenthal

The podcast unravels playbooks behind some of the world's most iconic companies and how you can put them to work, whether you're a founder, operator, or investor.

Ian can't get enough of hearing about the successful growth hacks that people use in the early days of building something new.

Des and Paul have some of the best perspectives on Product Strategy out there.

And for fun he tunes in into:

  • Reply all with Alex Goldman, P.J. Vogt and Emmanuel Dzotsi

They've got a knack for uncovering those hidden gems - stories with intriguing plots and characters that you won't find anywhere else.

The podcast is an absolute thriller; the story keeps him on the edge of his seat.

Case 63 is pure science fiction magic. What sets it apart is how genuinely listener-focused it is – you can't help but get entangled in their world and the dilemmas they face.
