Alan Alda has a wonderful podcast called Clear+Vivid. I highly recommend it as both an antidote to almost every other podcast and as a solid personal growth podcast. He is not some young guy giving you truisms that are supposed to make you a better person. It reminds me that with age comes wisdom. Now that I am 45 years old, I hope that saying is actually true. Alan Alda is a really good conversationalist and when he has a guest that is also a good conversationalist or a good story-teller, the podcast is very engaging.
