You won’t find a better evidence-based PT podcast than this. The hosts, Erik Meira and JW Matheson, analyzes 1 journal article per episode. It’s a great way to stay current with the literature. This podcast will improve your skills in analyzing literature critically and properly applying that to your own practice. Plus JW is hilariously nerdy.

Tim Ferriss. (Non-PT Podcast)
Tim Ferriss is a well-known author of The 4-Hour Workweek, The 4-Hour Chef, and The 4-Hour Body. Jamie Foxx equates him to “white Oprah” of the podcast world. He interviews world-class professionals, businessmen, and thinkers including a physical therapist like Kelly Starrett and strength coaches like Pavel Tsatsouline. This is a great podcast for self-improvement in professional and personal aspects of life. It will redefine your concept of productivity and living a full life. Fun fact: his mom is actually a physical therapist.
The Movement Fix
The host, Ryan DeBell is a chiropractor but don’t let the stereotype hinder you from listening to this podcast. Most modern chiropractors and PTs should have similar clinical reasoning and tool boxes for an optimal outcome of each patient.
He has built up an impressive guest list with the greats such as
• Shirley Sahrmann
• Stuart McGill
• Erson Religioso
• Greg Lehman
• Perry Nickelsten
• Mike Reinold
• Charlie Weingroff
• Gray Cook
Hosted by Gene Shirokobrod, Joe Palmer, and Erson Religioso covers wide variety of topics such as the business side of PT, interviewing skills, cash PT, blood flow restriction, mentorship, etc. Here are a couple of my favorites..
