Podcasts During Divorce?

Podcasts have a been around long enough to have a pretty reliable reputation and a pretty loyal following.  I’ve known people who have loved listening to podcasts, recommended podcasts, and are always talking about their newest podcast or a great one they just found.  I was just never interested.

But, I’ve recently gotten interested in podcasts when a client mentioned one he was listening to at the time and that it was helpful for him while he was going through his case.

And, as a family law attorney, that caught my interest.  Had podcasts gone from a replay of a radio show or just a long advertisement to something more?  I thought I’d better take a look to see if this was a resource worth recommending and listening to myself?

I was pleasantly surprised.  Podcasts have gotten so much better since I first investigated.  There is good, new content out there!  There are podcasts that you can subscribe to but you can listen to one episode of a particular podcast if you just want to hear that particular one.  There are podcasts about divorce, parenting, money management, parenting after divorced, positive mindset, surviving divorce, single parenting.  There are so many podcasts it was amazing.

So, I embarked on a journey of investigating and listening to new podcasts.  And, I came up with a very diverse list of podcasts that you may find interesting – you may not- if you are going through a family law case, including divorce with kids and divorce with no kids.  Some are faith-based, and some are not (language can get colorful in some).  Some focus on women and some don’t.

Here’s a list to get you started.  All links go to itunes.

1) This one falls in the classic category: Zig Ziglar – The Zig Ziglar Show.  You can’t go wrong with Zig Ziglar.

2) This one is newer: This Grit and Grace Life.

3) Another classic: The Dave Ramsey Show.

4) Classic again: Focus on the Family Parenting Podcast

5) Life strategies: The Marie Forleo Podcast

6) Life strategies/Career: Rise and Grind with Daymond John

As you can see, this is a very short list and is just the tip of the iceberg.  But, I think that with all of the new podcasts, there could be something out there that helps you during your time of transition during your divorce or family law case.  It could be a resource for you.  I don’t know for sure, but it could be worth your time.

As always, consult an experienced family law attorney for questions regarding your case.  For an appointment, call 940-497-5454.
