Let’s talk Podcasts

If you are so bored of your playlists, and at this point you know every song in your playlist at the top of your head. Then, this is is the blog post for YOU.

There is literally a podcast about everything, and anything!

From motivational/inspirational/feel-good to creepy/eerie/suspenseful. I jump from one type of podcast to another, but lately I’ve been on this true crime podcast binge. If you could tell from the picture above most of them are in that category. Sometimes they can be a little too much, and I’ll switch it up to a lighter themed podcast. Just to have that break, or “comic relief” in between. If you haven’t listened to any podcasts, but you want to without knowing where to start I’ll list some of my favorite ones down below by category.

True Crime

This has been my favorite, and go to category. Not because I like serial killers, but because it seems interesting/crazy how the mind of other people work. Also, it teaches you a lot about the justice system and how it differentiates between people. I’ll let you come up with your own conclusions, and ideas (please share your thoughts with me). One of the main reasons I love these podcasts is that I’ve shared them with friends, coworkers, and family to the point it’s become like a book club.

Here is how I would describe them:

  • Casefile– a podcast that talks about various crimes and serial killers with a glimpse of their upbringing.
  • Over My Dead Body– a divorce gone bad. This case proves that fact is stranger than fiction.
  • Serial Killers– the title says it all. These are stories of serial killers, their victims, and how everything led to that point.
  • Up and Vanished– This one was the one that started my binging on true crime podcasts. Listen to the story of Tara Grinstead, so that we can talk about it. The host of the podcast is amazing, and it will make you feel like you are part of the mission to solve this case.

Entertainment

These ladies make me feel like I’m talking to my girls while I’m at work. They honest, hilarious, and some a little raunchy (like myself 😂).

Here is how I would describe them:

  • WHOA That’s Good ft. Sadie Robertson– I love this podcast, because she is so sweet, has inspirational guests, she talks about Jesus, and I love when she calls her mom to share advice she’s been given.
  • Why won’t you date me? With Nicole Byer– In this podcast Nicole Byer (from the show Girl Code) asks guys she’s been with/and or messed with, why they haven’t dated her. She also asks her close friends why they think she is undateable. Pretty much she has the balls to ask the question most single girls would like to ask those in their life.
  • Anna Farris is Unqualified– Anna Farris has her friends come over to her podcast, and talks about all kind of topics. Makes you feel like your having drinks with friends, and having genuine conversation. Listen to the one with Chelsea Handler and Tiffany Haddish.

Educational

If you like to multitask, this is the category for you.

Here is how I would describe them:

    • StarTalk Radio with Neil Degrasse Tyson– NDT talks science and astrophysics has special guests like Bill Nye.
    • CoffeeBreak (Italian)– I used this podcast to learn Italian phrases before going on my euro trip. It was perfect because while I worked I would put my headphones on, and repeat after them. Which totally made me look crazy at work speaking to myself in Italian, but I learned a lot.
    • TED Radio Hour– Have you watched TED Talks? This is the podcast version. They have guest speakers on all topics. You’re bound to learn something new.
    • LORE– Is a podcast about the origin of Folklore from different countries, and even tells you about how different sayings came about. They even made a show about it on Amazon Prime. Completely recommend to those of you that are curious about things, and ask things like “I wonder who came up with this saying?”

Well, I hope you find some podcasts you might be interested in checking out. If you listen to any of the ones that I’ve listed, let me know! Comment here or any of my social media to let me know what you thought of them.
