Whether you’re already working remote or searching for your first work from home gig, you might be interested in listening to some podcasts on the topic. Fortunately there are some great informative options that give you motivation when you need it and inspiration when you don’t know you need it.

As someone who has spent years working remotely on my own projects, I feel like I’m in sync with the challenges remote and WFM workers face. So, the recommendations below are based on what I’ve found useful as freelance remote worker.

Podcasts About Remote Working

Those of you who are new to remote work and working from home will likely find podcasts that cover the topic from every angle the most interesting. Below are a few options to stream when you have time.

1. Brilliant Business Moms Podcast by Beth Anne Schwamberger

Hands down the best option for mom like you is this awesome podcast about moms who are crushing it working online from home. At the time of compiling this post, there are 200 episodes, and yes, they are regularly being produced.

What I love about this podcast is that it features moms who are in the trenches and getting things done. And you get practical advice that you can apply to your own remote work or working from home.

So, if you’re reading this and you’re not a mom, then don’t be put off by the focus on moms — this podcast is great for anyone who works from home or does remote work.

2. Remote Work Podcast by Job van der Voort

Don’t let the Dutch name deter you from checking this one out because it is in English. This limited episode podcast started in 2018 and lasted through 2019 before stopping.

While there are not very many episodes available, I still think people who are new to remote work will find value in these.

3. The New Corner Office Podcast by Laura Vanderkam

The youngest podcast to make this list, Vanderkam was inspired to start this podcast when so many workers found themselves working from home for the first time during COVID-19.

The best thing about this podcast is the length of each episode – just for to five short minutes. So, even the busiest of moms have time for this one.

If you’ve already secured that dream remote job and you’re working from home right now, then you might be more interested in some podcasts that help you out with that. I’ve got some favorites that I use to help me stay productive and sane while working remotely from home.

8. The Daily Meditation Podcast by Mary Meckley

Sure, meditation isn’t for everyone and these episodes might not be your cup of tea. I used to think the same thing before I tried it.

All I can say is that it helps keep my stress levels and in check and it helps me to focus on the day ahead. If you don’t believe me, then just try it for a day or two.

The episodes are short, so it won’t take up much time. Just around 10 minutes at the start of your day.

9. The 20 Minute Fitness Podcast by ShapeScale

Working from home means that you’re probably not getting in as much of a fitness routine as you should, right? Well, this podcast is no substitute for that.

However, it does give you some interesting tips and information about fitness that you can put into practice. And I find that just listening to it makes me want to workout a little each day.

10. The Productive Woman Podcast by Laura McClellan

There are lot of podcasts out there on productivity, but I think moms will get the most benefit from this one. And it’s still being produced, with almost 300 episodes currently in the archive.

The episodes might be a bit long for some stay-at-home moms, with an average between 30-45 minutes in length. But if you can make the time, then I think you’ll get a lot of value from these episodes.
