My 8 Favorite Podcasts


Every Monday and Thursday Dax and Monica bring 2ish hours of deep, real, heartwarming, hilarious, interviews to the world. This has to be the best podcast available right now.


Up first is brought to you each weekday morning by the crew of NPR’s Morning Edition. It’s the perfect 15-20 minutes of major current evens to keep you in the know, but overwhelmed.


Having spent a small portion of my childhood in the rural south, it’s mind boggling to know that something like this could have been happening right down the road. S-Town will have you captivated from the very beginning. Seven, hour long episodes, bring you behind the drama of a small Alabama town.


Each Monday, host Shankar uses science and stories to explain the patterns in human behavior, and how those shape our choices and relationships.


Over three amazing seasons, Serial has given us a look at the murder trial of Adnan Syed, the runaway and capture of Bowe Bergdahl, and the daily goings on in a Cleveland, OH courthouse.


I haven’t ever really paid much attention to Richard Simmons, but this podcast was endlessly fascinating. I understand Richard Simmons’ desire for privacy, but this story of concern and sadness from the people that felt closest to him makes you ask a lot of questions. Be well Richard.


I have read all of the Freakonomics books, so when this podcast came out I was thrilled. This is probably the first podcast I ever listened to regularly, and I look forward to it every Wednesday.


I’ve been a Conan fan since I discovered him on Late Night in the early 2000s. After recovering from what could have been the end of the world (Y2K) Conan helped me rebuild, bahahahaha, j/k. Conan has been making the world laugh for a long time, and I’m definitely up for every minute I can consume.

I listen to podcasts in the car, while I do housework, and in the shower. They are quickly becoming one of my favorite things to listen to. I like learning interesting things and listening to interviews. It’s like story time for adults.

I am always in the market for new podcasts to try. Leave your favorites in the comments below.
