Best way to get through long drives? Listen to podcasts! I subscribe to A LOT of podcasts to keep me entertained while on the go. Here are my top picks, if you’re looking for some ideas!
Hey Frase: If you listened to the Kane Show or 107.3, you might remember her. Her and her guests on the show are highly entertaining. I impatiently wait for the episodes to drop every Wednesday!
Happier: Gretchen Rubin, author of The Happiness Project , hosts this podcast along with her sister. Gretchen is very type A, and I can relate to her way of thinking. They do one full episode a week, in addition to a quick minute or two podcast with a quote and short story to ‘make your week a little bit happier’. Love that!
The Beauty Brains: Scientists answer questions about beauty products. Kind of nerdy, but interesting!
The Minimalists Podcast: It is somewhat repetitive, but a great reminder of ways to simplify your life for a clear mind. Now, the hard part is following through on all the tips!
This American Life: Top rated podcast put on by Chicago Public Media.
On The Media: As the podcast description puts it, “examining how the media sausage is made.”
The New Yorker Radio Hour: Writers and editors of The New Yorker showcase some stories and comedy found in the news.
Wait Wait.. Don’t Tell Me!: Cracks me up. Current events in an entertaining quiz to determine what’s real and what’s fake news.
Serial: Season one and two really got me into podcasts. Looks like they have a new show coming out, but it will be hard to top.
Truth & Justice: Bob Ruff did a more in-depth podcast series on the Adnan Syed case, but I lost interest on the other cases he covered.
Undisclosed: is another podcast created by one of Adnan’s family friends and has continued with new cases.
Criminal: Don’t listen alone. You may have nightmares.
Lore: Also a scary one, but mostly based on superstitions and historical events.
PaleOMG: If you don’t mind a dirty mouth, she is hilarious. She talks fitness, food, and staying on board with healthy living.
Fed and Fit: Cassy is THE happiest person and it’s contagious. Great motivator for nutrition, exercise, and positive lifestyle changes. She also talks shop with business tips for becoming an entrepreneur.
The Nourished Podcast: This is all about holistic nutrition. The girls talk about how diet is connected to so many different health concerns, and ways to modify to help heal.
The Ultimate Health Podcast: It might sound like ‘alternative’ science, but I find this podcast fascinating. A Canadian couple covers nutrition, mental health, supplements, meditation, exercise, and much more.
Budgets and Cents: Easy to digest financial tips
Planet Money: Usually 30 minute episodes of very random, yet intriguing stories related to the economy.
Blissful Bites: Great for entrepreneur-minded people. The author has a food business and has guest business owners come on to talk about their success stories, etc.
