List 4: Today’s Playlist

A new series in which I share lists which I hope will help you to get to know me better. Why? Because I started this blog what feels like forever ago and there’s bound to be some new faces peering in once and awhile! So these posts are kinda like an introduction (or a reintroduction for those who’ve been with me since the jump!). A nice to meet ya, so glad you stopped by, now STAY AWHILE! Why lists? Because I love making ’em! (+ it’s the summer and I can give myself some grace when it comes to not posting overly-elaborate blog posts.)

Current Podcast Subscription List

Last night, as I cleaned up the kitchen and loaded the dishwasher, I did what I always do during chores these days. Popped in my earbuds and played a podcast. Do you do this? Ever since starting this ritual, I find myself looking forward to doing the dishes. *gasp* It’s almost like the doldrums of domesticity masquerading as pleasant self-care. Highly recommend!

Anyways! Here’s my current line-up, in case you’re curious:

And I just started Britney’s Instagram and Embedded (after finishing Dirty John).

What’s on YOUR subscription list? There are so many good podcasts out right now, I might have to start doing more daily chores! 😉 

P.S. I asked 9 friends, “What’s your favorite podcast?” and here’s what they had to say.

What’s your favorite podcast?

listening to lately

Lately, I’ve found myself in a pretty comfortable podcast rotation. However, I’m always interested to hear what others are listening to. So I asked a few folk, “What’s your favorite podcast?” Here’s how they answered. If you’re looking for some great recommendations, look no further…

The Black Tapes. Super creepy audio drama, well worth a listen.

The Way I Heard It. 5 minute episodes containing random but compelling anecdotes.

Thinking Sideways. Funny but thorough looks at mysteries at least 5 years old. The hosts have awesome chemistry.”

Lauren 

“Our whole office was waaaay into Serial. Debates about the innocence of Adnan Syed… and if he didn’t do it – who did?”

-Drew

Wigsnatchers (comedy), 2 Dope Queens (comedy), Limetown (terrifying drama), You Must Remember This (Hollywood history- amazing series on the Manson family), Stuff Mom Never Told You (A+ feminism), The Uncertain Hour (amazing breakdown of poverty/sociology), Tanis (similar to Black Tapes), RuPaul: What’s the Tee? (duh), Gravy (food culture/sociology).”

-Betsy

“I am so hooked on The Black Tapes and Tanis. I also like The Bright Sessions (fiction)–a therapist has patients with special powers and helps them cope with them, and then requisite conspiracy drama ensues.

Really into Lore now, too. Each episode looks at freaky historical events and folk tales.”

-Vince

“Thumbs up for Whistlestop, neat podcast, well-written, researched, and performed by journalist John Dickerson about US Presidential campaign histories.”

-Lydia

The Read — Kid Fury and Crissle are HILARIOUS. They cover entertainment news, Black excellence, and at the end of each episode they “read” someone or something for FILTH.”

-Ashley

“Please don’t judge me but: Bitch Sesh: a Real Housewives Breakdown by Casey Wilson and Danielle Schnieder (of Happy Endings).”

-Adam

Keepin’ it 1600 for all your elections needs.

Greatest Generation if you love Star Trek and/or sophomoric humor.”

-Jon

“Nicole Antoinette’s podcast Real Talk Radio. It’s all about building better habits, making tough transformations, success stories and failures and how to make change happen. She’s very honest and raw and has lots of different guests on each season.”

Laskmy

Invisibilia, 99% Invisible, More Perfect, RadioLab, Tolkien Talk, Welcome to Night Vale, Alice Isn’t Dead, The Moth, Judge John Hodgman, Science Friday, Small Town Horror, Archive 81Chapo Trap House, Revisionist History, Embedded,  WTF with Marc Maron, Fresh Air, This American Life, All Songs Considered, Celebration Rock, The Nerdist, Strangers, Not By Accident, Savage LovecastStuff You Missed in History Class, Code Switch, Citizen Radio, Selected Shorts, The Longest Shortest TimeMy Dad Wrote a Porno, Snap Judgement, Reply All, Mystery Show, Extra Pack of Peanuts, Song Exploder, Death Sex and Money, How Did This Get Made, and Note to Self.

(Is it just me or are podcasts KILLING IT lately?!?)

Oh, and in case you’re curious, this is what MY current subscription* list looks like:

Plus, I just listened to an episode of Real Talk Radio per Laskmy’s recommendation and LOVED it and I can’t wait to check out The Box, a new podcast created by my friend Lauren (her favorites are featured up top).

*These subscriptions are definitely more of my “every day” podcasts, like for working out or chores. For long road-trips I prefer stuff like You Must Remember This, Mystery Show, and Serial.

Ok guys, I know this was a pretty exhaustive list…but what’s been left off? What have YOU been listening to lately?
