5 Non-Legal Podcasts For Paralegals

A New Spin on Your Typical List of Paralegal Podcasts

There are already enough lists out there for the top podcasts for paralegals. That’s because there are not very many active podcasts for paralegals out there to choose from. We thought it was time to put together a list of podcasts that were motivational and career-related but not specific to the legal industry.

According to SEMRush (https://www.semrush.com/blog/podcast-stats/), people spend 15 billion hours listening to podcasts in 2021.  That was an increase of 3 million hours just two years ago.  Now that many of us are returning to the office (and unfortunately, back to a daily commute), we put together this list of five of our favorite career-related podcasts that put out weekly content on topics that are not related to the legal profession specifically, but that you might benefit from in your paralegal career.  

These are listed in no particular order of preference.
