One of my favorite ways to learn about things is listening to podcasts, and the paleosphere has many to choose from. So many that you might find it difficult to decide where to jump in. Here are my current top picks for those new* to the medium:
Balanced Bites with Diane Sanfilippo and Liz Wolfe
Aside from being entertaining and informative, they were first to mention my book Paleo For Restaurants, so they get the first spot on my list. 😉 Rated BG for banter and occasional giggles.
The Paleo Solution with Robb Wolf
Robb’s book The Paleo Solution was my introduction to paleo, and he’s still my favorite of the personalities. Occasional strong language.
Revolution Health Radio with Chris Kresser
Chris really knows his nutrition and biochemistry, and explains health topics brilliantly. He also tells you what he had for breakfast.
The Fat-Burning Man Show with Abel James
I was hesitant to listen to this at first because the marketing looked hokey to me, but Abel’s a real guy with a refreshing perspective, lots of good content, and a great radio voice. Some people don’t know he’s also an accomplished musician.
Everyday Paleo with Sarah Fragoso
Though no longer produced (Sarah is doing other podcasts) this remains a great library to listen through, especially for beginners, and particularly those with children.
Paleo Magazine Radio with Tony Federico
This is the audio counterpart to the Paleo print magazine, and as such you can expect a digest of news and developments in the paleo world.
Primal Blueprint Podcast
Written by Mark Sisson; Narrated by Brad Kearns and Brock Armstrong, this offers a primal perspective rather than strict paleo. The information is so good that you’ll find it valuable even if you need to ignore an occasional reference to dairy foods.
Latest in Paleo with Angelo Coppola
Another digest of information and personal perspective. Some content has been extraordinary.
* If you’re new to podcasts:
If you’ve never listened to a podcast before, just open a podcast player app (many free options, and most smart phones come with one pre-installed) and click on the search function. Enter a title or subject, and when found select an episode to play. If you like it, you can add previous episodes and/or hit “subscribe” to automatically download new ones. Podcasts are generally free. If you like it, ratings and reviews are easy and very much appreciated.
