Five Favorite Podcasts

Happy Monday to all! I took a little break from blogging to recharge my mind, as work was making me feel burned out everyday and it was hard to put energy into blogging during the last 2 weeks. I am sure all of you can relate that even though we love our hobbies and want to give them as much time and attention as we can, we all still have to make a living and bust our asses at our full-time jobs. But I am back and I am ready to give my passion (blogging) more time and energy.

One of my favorite things to listen to on my daily commutes to work is podcasts. I seem to stick to around 5 that I have actively listened to for the past year or so. So basically I rounded up those 5 and am sharing them with you today, maybe you may find something new to listen to or maybe you will finally give podcasts a shot.

My Favorite Murder:

Karn Kilgariff and Georgia Hardstark do an amazing job of telling true crime stories mixed with a healthy amount of comedy without ever disrespecting any victims. This podcast gives the feeling of listening to your best girlfriends tell hometown tales of crime and murder. and if you are like me (a Murderino) and are fascinated but this genre then you have to give this a listen to because you won’t be disappointed.

Ladies Who Lunch:

This is hosted by YouTubers Ingrid Nilsen and Cat Valdes, and as a huge Ingrid YouTube fan, I naturally was drawn to this podcast. It’s basically two friends eating lunch and talking about topics that are “often left out of polite conversations”. They touch on subjects that involve sex, relationships, social phobias, mental illness and so much more. As a person who actually enjoys having these conversations with others to hear what their opinions are (although they have a tendency to escalate) its great to hear their point of views on the subject matters or their advice on having these conversations with others.

Anna Faris is Unqualified:

This podcast is such a good light entertaining choice. Anna Faris basically pairs up with some of her celebrity friends and while chatting they discuss what she likes to call it “not-great-relationship advice”. Anna is hilarious is general and listening to her interact with her Hollywood friends is quite entertaining and at the end of it all, I think that she does give great advice as if you were talking to a close friend.

Not too Deep with Grace Helbig:

Another YouTuber podcast hosted by Grace Helbig and Jack Ferry where they both interview other YouTubers and some celebrities all while getting not too deep. They ask the hard-hitting questions like describe your worse pants shitting story in 3 words or who would you throw cold spaghetti at (since it’s not harmful, but sends a message). I find myself laughing at Grace’s quirkiness and this is a good light listen.

This podcast is hosted by Brian Reed who is contacted by a man named John who hates his shit town located in Alabama and apparently has some information regarding a murder that took place there. The podcast quickly switches paths once Brian realizes it isn’t about a murder it’s about John’s eccentric life in Shit Town, Alabama. I highly recommend giving this a listen, Brian Reed does a fantastic job of interacting with John and all the characters that surround his life. Each episode you can’t predict where it is going but it hooks you in such a good way you can’t stop listening. I am so sad this is only a season long but I highly recommend it.
