MY PODCASTS AND ME


I recently invested (finally!) in a bluetooth speaker so I could listen to music and podcasts while I get work done around the house. Life changer. A few of my current favorite podcasts:

1 // This American Life: The original podcast. I've listened to so many episodes and each one is on a completely random topic, broken down into three parts. I have no idea what I'm going to do with all the random facts I know now but I look forward to this one each week. 

2 // Serial, Season 1: Most people have probably listened to this one as well. I can't say I'm loving season 2. I haven't given up on it yet, but for new listeners, I would definitely listen to season 1 and try to hold judgment on season 2.

3 // Modern Love: A brand new podcast from the New York Times column that has famous people read the stories that have appeared in the column. Two episodes in and I'm already hooked.

4 // Sword and Scale: A true crime podcast that delves deep into cases I've heard of and ones that are completely new to me. I would caution anyone who isn't into true crime or even is easily spooked. As it's slogan says: "The worst monsters are real."

5 // Unauthorized with Anna Faris: Anna interviews celebrities in her living room while taking random callers who need advice, which she is completely "unauthorized" to give. Hilarious and occassionally insightful.

6 // Oh Boy by Man Repeller: As a fan of anything Leandra Medine touches, I've loved this podcast from it's first week. The host, Jay Buim, is great at getting people to open up and I love that he sticks to roughly the same questions each week but somehow each interview goes in completely different directions. My personal favorite interviewees: Emily Weiss and Alexa Chung.

7 // Fresh Air: Conversations regarding books, movies, and the news with authors, actors, directors, writers, etc. 

Do you have any recommendations?
