5 of the Best Podcasts from Grand Rapids, Michigan

Hey folks,

If you’re looking for podcasts in the Grand Rapids, MI, area, look no further. There’s tons of creative and talented people in this area. Here’s a podcasts that cover different themes and topics:

Grand Rapids Podcast #1: Creative Ops

OK, I gotta start with mine, right? I talk to creative people from around the country, and a few specifically local to west Michigan. The only requirement to being on the show is that you have to do something creative. I’ve talked to musicians, writers, comedians, people who work behind the scenes in film and television, gamers, business owners, artists, and more. The idea is to entertain, inform, and inspire others to be more creative by demystifying the creative process by getting to know the creative people that do awesome things around us.

Grand Rapids Podcast #2: A Talk in the Attic

Hosted by the mutli-talented Kirk Ross, who also designed my book cover!

A Talk in the Attic one is great because it has an accompanying YouTube page.

“Why is that so great? Lots of podcasts have a YouTube page…”

Yeah, but this one is a separate experience from just listening. Sometimes Kirk does animations or uses other special effects to create a visual experience that stands alone from the listening experience.

(And you can record in The Attic…for a price. It’s a full-service podcast studio, with video capabilities.)

I highly recommend. Start with one of my appearances. Or don’t. But do.

Grand Rapids Podcast #3: Threads Podcast: Life Unfiltered

This podcast will always be special to me because it was the first podcast (mine or otherwise) that I was ever on. They were fairly new, met me and found out I was writing a book, and had me on to talk about it. They also had me write SEO for them for a little while, which led to some other opportunities. They took a chance on me for no good reason and helped me start my podcast. And guested on it a few times. Check these guys out if you wanna hear 2 dudes talk about the real life stuff that most people keep off their social media.
