My Favorite Podcasts

Today’s post doesn’t have much to do with these pictures, I just wanted to show this darling black jumpsuit. To be honest, I love jumpsuits on other people and have been so hesitant to get one for myself. I finally took the plunge on this Zara one, now I’m obsessed!  Now, let’s get to the topic and talk about my favorite podcasts!

Earlier I talked about how I hardly ever listen to music, instead I listen to a ton of podcasts! I have been recommending podcasts to friends and strangers forever. I am sharing a few podcasts that I listen to religiously, my favorite fictional ones and some that I subscribe to.

Best Daily and Weekly Podcasts 

The Daily by New York Times – Its about a 20 show that comes out Monday to Friday hosted by Michael Barbaro. The show covers what is happening every day in the news. With our current President and everything that surrounds him, this show is a great way to stay caught up.

The American Life by NPR – It’s a weekly show that been on forever, I think it first aired in 1995. If you aren’t familiar with This American Life, you need to download it now! It’s my favorite podcast and they have the best stories! Start with Episode #566 – The Land of Make Believe.

Rough Translations by NPR – This is a new show, there are only 2 episodes out so far. This show is about the things we’re talking about being talked about somewhere else in the world.

Best Fictional Podcasts

Limetown – I must have missed that it was a fictional podcast when I downloaded, because I thought it was a real show! In the show, hundreds of people go missing one night from from a small town, never to be seen or heard from again. An American Pubic Radio hosts in a search to learn what happened.

Tanis – The show is one reporters search for the myth of Tanis. Tanis is an exploratin of the nature of truth, conspiracy and information. It is what happens when the lines of science and fiction start to blur.. It’s on the 3 seasons and great!

Deadly Manners – A murder mystery set in 1954 at a dinner party thats closed in by a snow storm. As the evening progress people get killed… one person dies in every episode. There are 10 half hour episodes, it’s a great show!

Podcasts I Subscribe To

Revisionist History hosted by Malcolm Galdwell (This is a new show I just download and so far, the half hour episodes are great) 

The Influencer Podcast: Marketing, Influence, Blogging, Branding, Business, Social Media, Growth hosted by Julie Solomon and product by New York Times (I normally don’t like this style of show but I find it to be so informative and helpful!)
