Have podcasts changed your life like they have mine? I honestly wonder what my life was like before I had a continuous story playing in my surroundings. I listen to them while I drive, while I clean, while I get ready in the mornings… Has it become an issue? I don’t think so.
If you’re new to the podcast world, get ready. Absolutely any topic is covered by somebody - some considerably better than others. Take your time, find your poison, and grab those headphones. What even is Netflix anymore?
Here’s some of our picks!
Sword & Scale. If you’re fan of true crime stories, definitely take some time to check this podcast out. It features a variety of narrated true crime stories intertwined with interviews with criminals, witnesses, victims, authors, 911 call audio, witness testimony, trial audio, & interrogation tapes. Warning: Do not listen before bed or while home alone - The stories are very creepy and very real.
Terrible, Thanks for Asking. You know how every day someone asks "how are you?" And even if you’re totally dying inside, you just say "fine," so everyone can go about their day? This show is the opposite of that. Hosted by author Nora McInerny, this is a funny/sad/uncomfortable podcast about talking honestly about our pain, our awkwardness, and being human.
Night Vale. A podcast presented as a radio show for the fictional town of Night Vale, reporting on the strange events that occur within it. The series was created in 2012 by Joseph Fink and Jeffrey Cranor. If you like a good story time session, this will be your jam.
True Crime All The Time. Another crime podcast. What can I say, I have a type. This podcast is put on by a duo, Mike & Gibby. There back and forth banter randomly throughout the episodes always makes me smile, giving a little break from the true crime stories they are telling. Great voices, great story tellers, and seem like genuinely great guys.
Beautiful Stories From Anonymous People. One phone call. One hour. No names. No holds barred. That’s the premise behind Beautiful Stories from Anonymous People, hosted by comedian Chris Gethard. Every week, Chris opens the phone line to one anonymous caller, and he can’t hang up first, no matter what. From shocking confessions and family secrets to philosophical discussions and shameless self-promotion, anything can and will happen!
