Launched in 2016 and at 236 episodes (at the time of writing), The Lazy Genius Podcast caught my attention with its great show title. The official blurb: “The Lazy Genius is here to help you be a genius about the things that matter and lazy about the things that don’t. From laundry to cooking chicken to making new friends, Kendra is here to welcome you into an easier way.”
In her own words, Kendra Adachi is “a wife and mom.” She quit trying so hard to have the ‘perfect life’ and decided to focus on being a genius about the things that matter and lazy about those that don’t. I love this concept!
With earlier episodes well over the hour mark, roughly 20-minute episodes now seem to be the norm. There are many life hacks for mom life on this show, and Kendra simplifies things that pop up in daily life. As a dad, I find the tips helpful even if not specifically aimed at men. It’s a positive show. One reviewer noted, “The guest interviews can be a little tough, because there is a lot of ‘You’re so pretty!’ ‘No, you’re so pretty!’ flattery that dominates the conversation.”
Kendra brings wisdom and humor as she tackles lighthearted as well as deep topics, all based upon her lazy genius principles. Worth a listen.
