It wasn’t too long ago that I’d never listened to a podcast. I honestly thought they had their heyday in the 90s and were just internet relics.
Oh how my opinion has changed.
I’ve become a huge podcast nerd in the last year. To the point where I wish I spent more time commuting because I can’t keep up with everything I subscribe to.
Here are some of my must listen podcasts.
Are you a podcast fan? What are you listening to?
This American Life is everyone’s favorite. I’ve been listening for at least 10 years.
Follow along with the Gilmore Guys as veteran fan Kevin T. Porter and newcomer Demi Adejuyigbe discuss my beloved Gilmore Girls episode by episode. I’m such a fan of these two that I even made it to a live show.
StoryCorps never fails to make me cry.
I can’t think of two brothers I’d rather take dubious advice from than Dear Hank & John.
Episodes 24-35 of You Must Remember This focus on Charles Manson’s Hollywood and are captivating.
Here’s The Thing with Alec Baldwin is an absolute riot. Not surprisingly, he’s loud, pushy, and charming.
Death, Sex & Money always offers refreshingly honest conversation on topics that most people aren’t having conversations about.
Reply All is internet geek heaven.
Send in a “How do it…” question and they’ll answer it on How To Do Everything.
The Heart is hit or miss for me, but I give each episode a chance because when it’s good, it’s really good. Potential NSFW warning.
New York Magazine’s Sex Lives talks about everything you ever wanted to know about sex but were afraid to ask. Or Google. Or even think about too hard. I love how non-judgemental the hosts are and the experts they bring in to add facts and background. Definite NSFW warning.
If you’ve ever looked someone up and down and then called bullshit, then you’re giving them The Read. No one is hip-hop or pop culture is safe from hosts Kid Fury and Crissle.
Fries before guys. Call Your Girlfriend is a podcast for long distance besties.
Anna Faris Is Unqualified is just so damn sweet that you don’t care if she’s unqualified to talk about whatever she’s talking about.
Sampler fuels my podcast obsession by highlighting the best of the best in podcasts each week.
