The ShindelRock staff shares its favorite podcasts for 2019:

Podcasts For Accounting & Tax Lovers: Yes, we tend to nerd out on accounting and tax issues (hey, we’re CPAs!). Here are some of our favorite industry podcasts that keep up informed about changes and advancements in our industry, so we can better serve our clients:

Podcasts For Business Owners and Leaders: We are a trusted partner to our clients, many of whom are leaders in their industry. We’re tuning in to hear the strategies and techniques we can use alongside our clients to help them grow and improve their organizations:

  • Chasing Excellence by Ben Bergeron (“This is, by far, my favorite podcast.  The focus is on creating a life you would deem excellent, and he covers topics from business, to time management, to general health and coaching elite athletes.” ~ Monica Buccallato, Senior Manager)
  • Better Every Day
  • How I Built This (“Famous entrepreneurs recount their almost-disastrous and sometimes-pitiful early days, on their way to building their fortunes along with the world’s most famous brands.”~Kelly O’Donnell, Marketing)
  • The Freelance Hustle (“Check out Episode #6, featuring ME discussing small business accounting and finance issues!” ~ Karla Harrington, Manager)
  • Business Wars
  • Jocko Podcast (“Most episodes are on leadership and discipline.  It’s hosted by Jocko Willink, a retired Navy SEAL officer & author of the books Extreme Ownership and The Dichotomy of Leadership (also highly recommended)! He now owns & operates his own company (with a fellow retired Navy SEAL officer, Leif Babin), which applies the lessons they learned on the battlefield to business environments.” ~ Monica Buccallato, Senior Manager)
  • Lead to Win  with Michael Hyatt
  • The One Thing(“It focuses on prioritizing the things that are important over the things that are urgent.  It’s a great business / time management podcast.” ~ Monica Buccallato, Senior Manager)

Podcasts For Fun! Yes, it’s the busy season for accountants, but we do occasionally step away from the tax returns and feed the right side of our brains:

  • ESPN’s 30 for 30
  • Hidden Brain (“The host uses science and storytelling to reveal unconscious patterns that drive human behavior.” ~ Julie Harris, Staff Accountant)
  • TED Radio Hour
  • This American Life
  • The Moth  
  • Increase Your Impact (“These are quick 2-3 minute podcasts that I listen to first thing in the morning.  They are packed full of inspiration and help me get a great start to the day. ~ Monica Buccallato, Senior Manager)
  • AMRAP Mentality (“He interviews successful / interesting people.  Each episode takes the format of an “AMRAP” (as many reps as possible) meaning the conversation is focused to be as powerful as possible in a short amount of time.” ~ Monica Buccallato, Senior Manager)
