Jumping on the Podcast Bandwagon

My sister is one of the coolest, most in-the-know people in my life.  I can thank her for turning me on to all sorts of things, from flowy tops to Jiffy Treat ice cream to Breaking Bad....things I have usually known about but not realized as things I needed in my life.  Most recently, thanks to her encouragement, I have finally hopped on the podcast bandwagon.  I know, I know, you can stop the applause.  I'm typically a late bloomer, or maybe it's that I tend to actively avoid what I deem to be "fads", so my podcasting experience has been limited to a few language podcasts here and there, usually listened to on an airplane.  I never really considered the world of podcasts for anything else, but man was I wrong.  I've started listening to them while I walk to and from the gym, while I fold laundry, while I work if I'm not in the mood for tunes...I've practically become a podcast evangelist that can't stop touting the joys of them!  I'm a picky listener, though.  I like my podcasts informative but not bossy, entertaining but not distracting, not too long and diverse in their subjects.  I'm excited to share these gems with you, and I'm always looking for new ones to add to my list!  Up next for me are some podcasts for entrepreneurs that I found, hopefully they fit my criteria!  I've rounded up some of my current faves to inspire you below.  A few are obviously pretty popular and you may have already listened to them, but I'm keeping them on the list in case you haven't!
