Podcasts Worth a Listen

9:15 PM


If you had told me this time last year that I would be writing a blog post about my favourite podcasts, I would have been pretty skeptical. From time-to-time, people would say "you should check out this podcast" and I would honestly think, 'Why, when I can watch TV or movie?'

Well, my friends, I should bite my tongue. Over the past few months, I have become seriously addicted to podcasts. I listen to them while I'm working, while I do the dishes, while I ride my bike. Pretty much everywhere. You get the picture. How's that saying go... once you start, you just can't stop? Definitely applies to the world of the podcast.

But i'll stop rambling on about my love for audio storytelling, and share with you some of my favourite channels to listen to! Next time you're doing a monotonous task and want some easy entertainment, download one of these and I promise you won't be dissapointed (well, I hope not!).


Ear Biscuits with Rhett and Link

Have you ever wondered about the "behind the scenes" of internet stardom? Well, even if your answer is no, I think Rhett and Link would win you over. Ear Biscuits, hosted by YouTube comedy duo Rhett and Link of 'Good Mythical Morning', consists of hour-long interviews with some of the internet's biggest stars, on a variety of platforms. Ranging from YouTubers like Jenna Marbles and Smosh, to Alexis Ohanian(the brainchild behind Reddit), these thoughtful and hilarious interviews reveal a whole other side to making a career out of the internet. If you're a blogger/youtuber/internet lover, I think you would find these as addictive as I do!

WTF with Marc Maron

Marc Maron's unique sense of humour has grown his podcast into potentially the biggest in the world. Hosted out of his LA garage, WTF features in-depth discussions with some of the world's biggest comedians and other "personalities." Guests of note from recent episodes: Jason Segel, Vince Gilligan, and oh yeah, President Obama.

Serial

This podcast was all the rage back in 2014, but with good reason. This 12 episode series, which follows the real life murder case of Hae Min Lee, is incredibly addictive without being too scary or anything like that. My boyfriend and I ended up listening to 6 episodes in one day because we wanted to find out what happened next. I think having the ability to captivate an audience in that way solely through the use of audio is a feat in itself.

TED Radio Hour

Do you like learning about why humans are the way we are, and why we do the things we do? Then you'll love TED Radio Hour. Plus, you'll get that extra boost of "I just learned things, yay i'm smart right?"
