Hello, everyone! I thought today would be a good day to talk about one of my favorite things: podcasts. It’s a nice change of pace to share my favorite “talk shows” instead of discussing books! I typically listen to podcasts in the car or when I’m doing housework – folding laundry and doing dishes are the BEST times to listen. Here are my top five favorites currently.
1. This Might Get Weird
I’ve been watching Grace Helbig and Mamrie Hart’s YouTube videos religiously for years, so when they started their own Good Mythical Morning style morning show channel called This Might Get, I fangirled HARD. That show eventually turned into this podcast, and I love every episode. They just chat to you like BFFs, and I love hearing the shenanigans they both get into.
YouTube and true crime stories are the few ways I pass the time nowadays, so listening to this podcast about the Zodiac killer was inevitable. I find the story so engaging, and the narration is very calming yet informative without being a snooze fest. Don’t do what I did and listen to it when you’re at work alone very early in the morning, however. You will hear strange noises, and you will think the Zodiac killer has come for you.
3. The TryPod
Like previously stated, YouTube is my life, which in turn makes the Try Guys my life. I love their videos and their friendship, so getting to hear behind-the-scenes moments and stories from their personal lives is a treat. Plus, their humor is unbeatable.
4. Ear Biscuits
Again, I have a YouTube problem. I love Good Mythical Morning, so why wouldn’t I love Ear Biscuits? Rhett and Link have a way of making you feel like you’re a part of their everlasting friendship, and I love the dynamic between them.
5. Mared & Karen – The WVU Coed Murders
This was the first podcast I ever listened to, and it definitely set the bar pretty high for me. As someone who has lived in West Virginia my whole life, I’m shocked that I had never heard of Mared or Karen or their gruesome story. I made the mistake of listening to this true crime series on a long drive at night to a secluded family cabin – I wouldn’t recommend that. The podcast has a laid-back approach to a horrific news story, and they intersperse local Appalachian music amongst the details of the murder. It makes for a very entertaining tale.
Whether you’re looking for something humorous and light-hearted or grisly and dark, I hope you take a look at these podcasts. They’re some of my favorites, and I think they’re well crafted and entertaining as hell. Let me know some of your guys’ favorites or ones I should check out in the comments below.
Until next time,
