My Favorite Podcasts

A few years ago I got really in to podcasts and I still am!  I'm always on the lookout for something new to binge and I thought you might be too so I rounded up my favorites from the past year or so and listed them below.

Now that I'm writing my list, I notice a definite pattern of crime stories and self-help.  I love a good mystery!  In college, my friends and I were quite certain we were going to single-handedly crack the Elizabeth Smart case.  Mostly from the clues we found via US Weekly and our arm-chair sleuthing skills.  But the most fascinating mystery I want to solve is what makes people tick, starting with myself--the mystery of people (most importantly ourselves), our motivations, our purpose here, what holds us back from achieving our goals, our relationship with others...and the list goes on and on and I just can't get enough!

I definitely listen to a good deal of Self-help and Mental Health podcasts.  I want to evolve and learn more about myself and I find a lot of comfort knowing I'm not on that road alone.  Hearing the spoken word is so powerful.

I'll try to keep this list up to date for you but I'd really love to hear what you're listening to these days.
*Edited to add--many of you mentioned Serial.  Yes, Season One was actually the very first podcast I listened to and loved but that was several years ago and I guess I assumed everyone had already listened and moved on.  Ha!  But, I totally agree it''s a must so it's being added to the list :)

  1. You just made my day! I love the crime podcasts and am going to add a few of these to my list!

    1. girl, they are the best! I've just started really getting into wrongful convictions. FASCINATING.

  2. Surely you listened to Serial.....

    1. that was my very first podcast. It's a gateway drug! haha! I just added it to the list ;)

  3. I love podcasts, too! Stuff You Should Know and Stuff You Missed in History Class are my favorites. Stuff Mom Never Told You is good, too! I liked Serial and Up & Vanished. S* town was addicting, but made me feel just yucky!

    1. Yes, those are good ones! I got used to the original duo from SMNTY and never warmed up to the new girls. I should go back and give it another try! Lots of good stuff in there!

  4. Homecoming is so good - it's suspenseful! My other favorites are the new Skimm podcast with interviews with women leaders, I also love Women Rule and How I Built This! I could not get into S town and that is on everyone's list!

    1. Homecoming keeps popping up on everyone's list. I tried it once and didn't get into it--I think I was too distracted by David Schwimmer trying to not be Ross. haha. I'm going to give it another try!


Thanks for joining the conversation!
