The Ranveer Show:

The first podcast I recommend is The Ranveer Show. The host of the podcast is Ranveer Allahbadia aka BeerBiceps of Youtube. He is also one of my favorite YouTubers in India.

His content revolves around Weight Training, Exercising, Dieting, Fashion, Grooming, Self-Improvement, Meditation, and Spirituality.

I have been following his content since he had 100k subscribers and his growth since then has been just amazing.

Currently, he has three youtube channels with the English channel having more than 2 million subscribers and Hindi channels having more than 1 million subscribers.

In his podcast, he brings leaders from various industries and goes deep down into their life and personality. Ranveer being such a good listener makes his podcast even better.

He has already brought stars from Bollywood like Ayushman Khurrana, Boman Irani, Saif Ali Khan, Shilpa Shetty. He has also brought Cricketing legend Glenn McGrath and various other famous YouTubers and legends of their fields into his podcast.

The Alux.com Podcast:

Okay, my current favorite podcast is the Alux.com Podcast. This podcast revolves around Luxury Goods, Premium Experiences, Business Lessons, and Self-Improvement.

They also have a youtube channel with more than 2.5 million subscribers and I have to admit, they create the most premium and detailed content on youtube.

They focus on giving their audience the best possible content, which brings value to their audience.

You should listen to their podcast to understand what I am talking about and very why I am saying so. This is one of the best podcasts to listen to.

SPI stands for Smart Passive Income. The SPI Podcast is lead by Pat Flynn who is the founder of smartpassiveincome.com.

In his podcast he talks about online businesses, blogging, affiliate marketing, multiple income sources and smart marketing tips which can grow an online brand.

They talk about strange and interesting stuff that you had never heard before. An extremely popular podcast, it has already crossed 1200 episodes and has no stopping.

TED Talks Daily:

So, I had to include TED Talks here. I believe every one of us should listen to TED Talks every once in a while. These are not podcasts to be exact.

We don’t see/listen to two people talking to each other. Rather it’s an actual talk where a speaker is addressing an audience about some really important topics and issues.

So, listen to TED Talks.

Tim Ferris is one of my favorite authors. He is a self-experimenter and best-selling author. He is well known for his book, The 4-Hour Workweek.

Jay Shetty started this podcast a year and a half ago and in a very quick time his podcast has become one of the most viewed podcasts in the world.

He says, “His purpose is to make wisdom go viral, and I can say”, he has made huge progress towards his big goal.

Jay is one of the most-followed people on social media when it comes to spiritual content.

He is also the best selling author and owns a youtube channel with more than a million subscribers.

If I had choose two best podcasts to listen to, then I will definitely include them in it.

If you don’t know where to start from, I would highly recommend starting with The Ranveer Show and The Alux.Com Podcast.  

These two are currently are my personal favourites and I am sure you will love them too.

Podcasts are the next big things in the digital media space. They are just a new form of radio, which people have been loving so far and the podcast industry will keep growing in the coming years.
