    My new favourite podcast
    I love love love this podcast. Listening to Kendra is like a having a soul soothing hug from an old friend. She identifies the many challenges that we face in day to day life without judgement and offers practical solutions that feel achievable! I’ve gone all the way to back the beginning and am picking out the episodes that resonate with me most, but I will eventually get around to catching up with them all, I hope. Thank you Kendra for being so generous in sharing your methods.
  • KT8050
    Just brilliant
    These podcasts give me clarity for the parts of my life that just cause chaos. They are so helpful. Such simple, ideas that actually work.
  • Cal Stephens
    Loved the episode on Planning your day. Just listened to it for a 2nd time. Too often we forget the bunting, or think it’s a waste - thanks Kendra that’s made a difference to my day.
  • WorldTraveler6
    Lots of deep wisdom in an accessible, fun format
    Kendra gets to the heart of helping us decide what matters to each of us, and what to do next. Highly recommend this podcast and her book.
  • Rodders1984
    Great, motivational podcast
    I’ve fairly recently started listening to this podcast. I’ve found it really helpful as Kendra motivates me to get things done in a real life way, and doesn’t chastise me on some things, like always having a spotless house all the time as I have a son who messes things up! Kendra talks in a clear, straight to the point way, and I love that.
  • Misspiggy726
    Freedom! 🙌
    My favourite podcast. Every episode unmissable. For the first time ever I’ve found someone who perfectly balances genius life hacks on one hand, with the freedom to be lazy with stuff that truly doesn’t matter on the other hand. It’s no exaggeration to say this podcast (and Kendra’s new book btw) have been life changing. ⭐️⭐️⭐️⭐️⭐️
  • The Hickmans
    One of my favourites
    I love listening to Kendra. She brings insight, kindness and humour to every subject she talks about.
  • lucyinedinburgh
    Love the practical advice
    Love Kendra and her practical advice. I find them so entertaining and affirming. I listen straight away every week.
  • lauraebrad
    Top tips for life!
    I love Kendra’s chatty style and her lazy genius tips are fab.
  • Roman geek
    This podcast was a great find
    Genuinely new ideas and good suggestions on how to do things differently!
  • Moosethatroared
    Essential for sanity!
    This is one of my all time favourite podcasts. Kendra is like the wisest, funniest, warmest best friend you’ve ever had with the added bonus of being available 24/7. I do have actual friends but as a 40something working mother of two, I rarely get to spend as much time with them as I’d like. We’re all pulled in so many different directions by this busy life but Kendra helps you to remember what’s really important. She has a knack of hitting the nail on the head just when I need that particular nail whacking. From Christmas baking to coping with a long car journey Kendra handles the actual everyday stuff of life in a way that makes you put things in perspective and leaves you wishing she would pop by for a cuppa. Just excellent!
  • Little Robinio
    Don’t miss this one!
    Kendra puts together a wonderful podcast every week, and speaks about pertinent topics that touch the heart and transform the way we do things. I love listening to her ideas and thoughts and tips and more... thank-you Kendra! 😁👍
  • tilliemint1
    I am so glad I found this podcast, over 12 months ago. Without sounding dramatic, for me, it’s been life altering. Kendra speaks like a life long friend and her take /views on the spaces of life inbetween the ‘big’ events is invaluable. She’s my one stop shop to getting back on track in my mind and life. Absolutely love this pod cast and can not recommend enough. Thank you Kendra.
  • SarahLHowitt
    Love this
    A great podcast, thank you Kendra for this fab content 😀
  • louisegoesforth
    A must listen for genius life hacks
    Love this podcast and the fresh take Kendra has to simplify life whilst involving minimal effort.
  • journeybuss
    The first regular podcast I have listened to
    I had never listened to a podcast regularly and then I heard about the lazy genius and everything changed! Kendra is a joy to listen to and has brilliant tips and ideas that I have implemented without even realising it! It just makes sense!
  • allfivehorizons
    Favourite podcast!
    I look forward to this one dropping into my podcast app every week. Kendra is so encouraging, helpful and never judgemental. I have taken so many useful tips away and love the easy, friendly tone. This podcast is my favourite and I listen to every one!
  • Beki, Oxford, UK
    Loving binge listening after stumbling across!
    I love it when I find a gem of a podcast! Such tangible ideas I can transfer to daily life instantly. Thank you Kendra for such a great podcast (and now sampling your blog!) ps My kids think I’m awesome since I baked my first batch of cookies!
  • A1Listening
    I love listening to Kendra - always something to think about and delivered as if you were chatting over a mug of coffee or tea. Very often offers a really simple perspective shift which casts a ‘problem’ or topic in a dramatically different way - try meal planning episodes for a good taste of what to expect.
  • yogi darling
    All the things
    This podcast has been the most useful thing to me. Each episode has easy, actionable tips and everything is clear and concise. Kendra is very relatable. I refer to what is discussed all the time and have definitely improved the way I clean, live and cook chicken.
  • CBCNightOwl
    Inspirational and grounded
    This podcast is really up-lifting. It really gives you affirmation is prioritising what is important in life and really not stressing about what just isn’t. I love how it looks into little, everyday things and really addresses them; these are things we have to do every day so let’s do them in a way that contributes to you living the life you were made for. Little things can make such a big difference! Thank you!
  • EekaMoo
    helpful and enjoyable
    I stumbled upon the Lazy Genius blog about a year ago and loved it. I just discovered that she does a podcast too and it has been such a blessing and so timely for me. Practical, useful, funny, real...I feel like she totally gets me and my life and offers realistic solutions to make life as a wife and mother more enjoyable (and efficient!). I also think if we lived closer we would be best friends, so it’s like finding a kindred spirit through a podcast. 😊 Thank you, Kendra, for doing the work you do and for helping so many women all over the world (I’m in Europe) to live life more beautifully and fully.
  • Pamskella
    Friendly and motivating!
    I’ve just recently found these podcasts while looking for information on bullet journaling and I’m not addicted! I love it. Kendra is so easy to listen to and makes me feel like I could one day be a lazy genius myself 😊
  • LydBrett
    Love this podcast!
    Kendra’s words are warm, encouraging, inspiring & informative. Her approach to life transfers over to yours like she is cheerleading you on to get the best out of the everyday rhythms of life. I have loved the episodes on cookies & tomato sauce, Kendra talks about food like i think about food. Along with her cleaning a kitchen & bathroom episodes are a delight really! Follow & listen!!
  • christine - northern ireland
    Amazing tips .... especially LOVE the budgeting episode & the bullet journal one. So good in fact, that while I had no intention of downloading & using a budgeting app AND starting a bullet journal.... I am not a convert to both. Hurrah for making my life more awsome! Thank you!!!
