Hey, Cool Job!

Stuck in the 9 till 5 trap?

Sometimes all you need is a little motivational booster to pick yourself up and out of the daily grind.

That boost is Mary HK Choi and her podcast Hey, Cool Job! is just what the motivation levels need.

She interviews everyday people with those not-so common jobs. From musician scouts to paparazzi and even porn stars (don’t worry, it’s PG).

Personal Best

If the name of this podcast turned you off, don’t panic. This is not a self-improvement podcast.

More so a self-improvement show for people who don’t like self-improvement stuff.

Still no? Give it a chance.

It’s hilarious, crazy and produces those warm and fuzzy feels.

Each episode starts out with some relatable person’s quest to achieve something.

The journeys are crazy but the solutions are simple.  

You can take it as a self-improvement motivator or just tune into the hilarious facepalm stories.

Either way, Personal Best will result in a smile.
