Friday Faves – April 10, 2020

Disclaimer: I like to start these posts with awesome photos I’ve come across throughout the week – it’s likely the pik won’t correlate to the actual content of the post, but maybe things will change in the future. I’ll try and add photo credit, whenever I can!

Let’s get on with the post!

What’s a great way to pass the time without going brain dead? Podcasts! Here is a round up of a few of my faves this week. These have been some of my favourites, especially for long commutes, while doing chores and other mundane tasks, or while taking a jog.

Desiring God’s “Ask Pastor John Podcast” (or “APJ”)

This is my absolute fave to ground me in the morning. After a short prayer, I head to the bathroom, to get ready for the day, and I fire up my APJ podcast app. Its much shorter than a sermon, and works well for the morning bathroom or quick breakfast prep, before beginning the work day. It is usually the catalyst that drives me to some scripture that was referenced, leading to meaningful meditation, conversations, prayers and thoughts throughout the day.

On the heels of the APJ podcast, is this new audiobook by Pr. John: “Coronavirus and Christ”. 

Its the perfect read/ listen this Easter weekend to counter/ balance all the news you’ll be hearing about COVI-19. I’m probably half way into the mp3, and I am drinking it in!

The Ted Radio Hour

I’ve always loved Ted talks, but truth is, I never get the chance to just sit and watch and savour these videos. So, the Ted Radio hour has been a blessing for me to catch up on talks I would have certainly missed. Its usually one of those podcasts I listen to during a long commute or when I’m unwinding at home on the couch, after a long day. I love listening to it with a mug of herbal tea/ hot chocolate in the nights, especially when my eyes are too tired to read a book.  BTW, the new host feels like a smart, well traveled, long time girlfriend, you love to hang and chat with (to me at least!)

Dr. Rangan Chatterjee’s “Feel Better Live More” podcast

I stumbled on Dr Chatterjee, while randomly browsing Youtube. I found his “Doctor in the House” episodes (its a British series) and was totally enthralled with his methods re: integrative medicine. I googled him immediately and found he had this amazing podcast. I’ve gained so many practical tips from him and his guests, and I love the fact that he gives all this good information away – for free! If you’re into health and wellness, and like to get into the “nitty-gritty” of things, then this one is for you.
