Podcasts seem to be popping up everywhere.
I constantly hear people saying “everyone and their dog has a podcast.”
To be honest, there can’t be enough podcasts for me - keep them coming! I love podcasts primarily because they’re something I can listen to the car, while I’m cooking, there’s a Podcast for any mood and when I’m alone it kind of feels like I’m hanging out with people.
Ya I’m a loser I know.
Inspiring podcasts, interviews, crime, humour. The options are limitless.
I thought I’d share a couple of the ones I’ve been listening to lately. These ones are a bit more interview style and comedy (because that’s just what I’ve been in the mood for lately), but I’m going to make a point of updating what I’m listening to on here every couple of months (because it changes all the time).
Description: This is a podcast that covers the stories of victims and prosecution of former team USA Gymnastics doctor Larry Nassar. This is a heavy podcast, I’m not going to lie there were moments I shed a tear or felt genuinely moved listening to the stories of the women and girls who were abused for years as children. It’s a really interesting and relevant story and I would for sure recommend it.
Name: Armchair Expert with Dax Shepard
Genre: Interview style
Description: Dax Shepard is an American actor and comedian who is married to the amazing Kristen Bell (who I happen to be a big fan of, and she is a guest a few times this season). I find this podcast interesting because they bring on high profile celebrities in a casual setting and talk about their careers, their passions, and I find that I typically listen to this podcast feeling informed and educated.
Name: Off the Vine with Kaitlyn Bristowe
Description: Yes, every person who has been on the Bachelor franchise seems to have a podcast. However, there are a couple that are actually pretty darn good in my option, this being one of them. Kaitlyn may not be everyone’s cup of tea, but I think she brings on interesting guests and it’s really quite funny. Kaitlyn’s podcast has the ability to make me feel like I’m sitting right there having a glass of wine with her and her guest and that’s my favourite kind of podcast.
Name: Scrubbing in with Becca Tilley and Tanya Rad
Genre: Interview/Comedy/Feel Good
Description: Yes, I know another Bachelor person. This podcast just makes you feel good. Tanya is Ryan Seacrest’s on air radio co host and Becca has been on a couple shows in the Bachelor franchise, but their friendship is something honestly inspiring. It’s really hard to keep genuine friendships with your girlfriends as you get older, but these two have such great conversations between themselves and their guests that will make you laugh and think at the same time.
Name: Serial (season 2 because if you haven’t listened to season 1 you’re living under a rock)
Description: Season 2 of Serial is finally here! Serial season 1 took the podcast world by storm and now season 2 is available and focuses on criminal justice system as a whole. I found it interesting to listen to, however it’s pretty different from the style of season 1.
So this is what I’ve been listening to lately! Have a recommendation? Leave it in the comments below.
