Today’s tech corner is all about Podcasts I’m loving! They make my commute to work every day a little more entertaining, I learn a lot from them, and they make me relax like only a book otherwise would do.

Girlboss Radio
Founder of Nasty Gal and author of #girlboss, Sophia Amosuro, invites world-class girlbosses who’s made their mark in the creative business industry into to this podcast. They discuss everything business. All the ups and downs, what it’s like to be a female boss etc. An inspiring and encouraging series of interviews!

My dad wrote a porno
In the mood for a good laugh? Well this podcast is perfect for you. When Jamie finds out that his dad wrote a dirty book he decides to read it out loud accompanied by some of his friends. It’s a little too much, but oh so funny!

What really happened
I started listening to this, because I wanted to hear the episode about Princess Diana, and instantly found myself captivated in this investigative world told by documentarian Andrew Jenks. I always love a good investigative podcast and all the twist and turns that comes with it, and this one is so well made!

And then two Danish podcasts for my Danish peeps!

Når Fars Pige Er Til Piger
Jeg kan huske, at jeg læste Katrines blog (dengang hun havde sådan en). Jeg elskede at læse med. Jeg kan huske, at hun sprang ud som lesbisk. Jeg kan huske, at hun læste til Journalist. Og så kan jeg huske, at hun lukkede bloggen efter nogle år. Det var jeg ret ærgerlig over! Men så opdagede jeg, at hun sørme har udgivet en podcast. Sådan i helt råt ”nede på jorden”- format, som jeg bare synes er helt vildt cool. Det er en ret gribende historie, hun fortæller, og jeg vil egentlig ikke sige mere end hør den!

Høje Hæle og Store Beslutninger
Den her podcast tippede Cathrine om for lidt tid siden. Jeg har siden hørt de ugentlige episoder med stor underholdning. Kort fortalt handler Høje Hæle og Store Beslutninger om Sophie Bech, som går efter en toppost i det private erhvervsliv. Hun taler med mange kloge kvinder om processen om at komme til toppen, og man følger hendes udvikling hertil. En total powerwomanagtig serie med super mange gode pointer at skrive bag øret, hvis du også går rundt med en lille chef-drøm gemt indeni.

It’s Tuesday again and it’s time for my new segment: Tech Tuesday. I’m telling you about apps and other tech stuff I’m loving brought to you, every Tuesday. I always love getting inspired by other people and which apps they use. Photo editing apps, fun video apps, apps to keep my life organized, so I would of course love to tip you guys about them too! Check out last week’s favorites right here!

  1. Evernote – I’m definitely a to-do list kinda person. That’s how I organize myself, and if I don’t do it… I forget everything. This app lets you gather all your notes and little scribbles in one place. This one definitely makes my more effective!
  2. Snapseed – As I work with social media I’m constantly looking for good editing apps etc, and since VSCO updated and you know have to subscribe I started looking out for other good alternatives. And I found this perfect one!
  3. Podcasts – I know this one comes with the phone (at least the iPhone), but I really use this on a daily basis. I shared my favorite podcasts right here & here!
  4. Bit.ly – I love making little bitly links to put in my Instagram bio, so you guys can click directly to the newest blogpost, but that has been such a pain until I discovered the bit.ly app, so now I don’t have to go on the computer anymore. Yay!
  5. YouTube Studio – Do any of you have a YouTube channel? If yes, please link it down below, so I can go watch your videos, but also if yes, this is an app I recently discovered. It allows you to check analytics, comments, and view count on the go!

Tech Tuesday

img_0640
It’s Tuesday, and I thought I would bring a fun new segment to the blog that I’m going to call Tech Tuesday. It will be apps or other tech stuff I’m loving brought to you, every Tuesday. I always love getting inspired by other people and which apps they use. Photo editing apps, fun video apps, apps to keep my life organized, so I would of course love to tip you guys about them too!

  1. VSCO – I might have mentioned this before, but this is my ultimate favorite app to edit my photos for Instagram. You guys probably know it already.. It has all sorts of filters, editing tools etc. I love it, and I don’t know how my Instagram-self would live without it!
  2. Kirakira+ – I actually can’t stop using this app for videos. You’ve definitely seen them on Instagram–it’s the app that makes videos super sparkly and pretty. Perfect for the festive season coming up!
  3. LiPix – I have been drawn back to my Scandinavian roots, and I’m loving everything simple and minimalistic. Therefore I’ve also been making my Instagram more simple, and I’m so inspired by white borders to brake up the grid. Simple white space that just makes my Instagram-self so happy. I actually also love making little collages like the above with a visual of a Picasso painting. Love, love, love.
  4. 8mm – I work in Online Marketing and that also includes taking care of brands’ social media platforms. For one of the brands I’ve developed a whole new visual and voice, and kept it all very down to earth and a bit vintage looking. This app is perfect for editing videos with lovely vintage-y filters. There are a few different ones, so you can find the one that’s just perfect.
  5. Glitché – It took me a while to get to know the interface of this app, but it’s quite cool. You can edit both images and videos with all sorts of cool looking filters f.x. broken mirror, VHS, glitch etc. This one is so fun for Instagram stories!

Top 5 podcasts I’m listening to ATM #2

Read former recommendations.

SMART the podcast

The two Danish bloggers Sidsel from FashionPolish.dk and Frederikke from FredesBlog.dk talk about everything and nothing in their newly-launched podcast named after their book SMART. They give advice on how to get into the fashion business (in Denmark, but also just in general), what they’ve been scrolling through in their social media feeds, and most important of all they ask “what’s SMART to wear?” There’s a good amount of humor and Danish hygge and I love it.

(Danish podcast, sorry to my non-Danish peeps out there, the 4 below are in English!)

Off the Vine

Kaitlyn Bristowe (best known from The Bachelor and The Bachelorette) invite a bunch of different personalities into her studio to discuss all sorts of subjects and drink some wine. Kaitlyn has a great humor (in my opinion) and just love how American/Canadian the podcast is.

In the Dark

This podcast investigates the abduction of Jacob Wetterling in 1989, which wasn’t solved until lately. I seem to be loving this documentary genre, because I finished the podcast in a few days. I just wanted to know the ending!

Optimal Living Daily

I just started listening to this one, but thought I would pop it onto the list as well. This podcast is made from different articles helping you live a smarter, more optimal everyday life. Today I listened to the one about organizing, and it offered little tips and tricks on how to make that big grey cloud of organizing your closet, kitchen etc. a little easier to overcome. Give it a listen, and let me know in the comments if you get anything out of it.

The Heart of It by Estée Lalonde

I’m already a big fan of Estée’s work with her entertaining youtube channel, gorgeous blog, and genius book ‘Bloom.’ So when I heard that she’s now hosting a podcast, I couldn’t wait to give it a listen. Estée takes up different subjects, and so far she’s discussed Feminism, Tattoos, and Make-Up. I love Estée’s approach to every subject as it’s as much about her own life and her telling us about her experiences, as it is about her interviewing a ’specialist’ who can teach us even more about the subject.

Okay guys… That’s it for now, but let me know in the comments if you have any podcast recommendations!
