Podcast Favorites

Driving in traffic in Los Angeles gets old. Driving in traffic in Los Angeles listening to the radio is straight up torture. Now, I am an avid music listener, don't get me wrong. You can find me jammin' anytime anywhere... sitting, standing, dancing, you name it. But sometimes I need a little break from the tunes.
Introducing, podcasts. The podcast world has been around for awhile, however, I only recently discovered the beauty of them. The plentiful variety of radio talk shows that are available (FOR FREE) is absolutely mind boggling. From the intellectually stimulating to the easy ear junk, Podcasts can take you anywhere. Not only can you listen to these babies driving, but you can also listen to them working out, cooking, or before falling asleep. So here I am to tell you just a few of my favorite podcasts... please don't judge my audio choices.

Happier with Gretchen Rubin

Some of you may know that I read Gretchen Rubin's book The Happiness Project a few years ago and absolutely fell in love with it. So I thought the next step to the book is obviously the podcast. "Happier with Gretchen Rubin" is a show Gretchen Rubin herself hosts with her sister Elizabeth Craft. Each week they discuss ways to improve your life, step by step. She has segments on specific topics like de-cluttering or journaling that really make a difference. I've also found that listening to this podcasts makes me happy.

TED Radio Hour

TED has become a popular way for knowledge consumption, but I've found that "TED Radio Hour" is a more efficient way of expanding the mind, on the go. If you're ever in the mood for some quality learning, take a listen to this podcast.

The Great Debates

When I'm in the mood for some witty commentary on society, I put on The Great Debates. Geniuses Steve Hely and Dave King debate random topics without any preparation at all, and kill it every time. Click down below to listen to their most recent episode:

Ghetto House Radio

I'm not sure how popular this show is, but if you are an EDM fan then definitely check this one out. Each week they have new popular EDM DJ's play a set. You can find me going hard on the treadmill sweating to GHR... what can I say, it pumps me up. 

Here To Make Friends

YES, I AM GUILTY. Guilty of what you may ask? Guilty of watching trashy, mind numbing television that promotes idiotic dating principles, otherwise known as The Bachelorette. And you know what's even more sad? I like to listen to a podcast that ironically discusses The Bachelorette. Because that's who I am. So if you are, like me, a fellow Bachelorette fanatic, take a listen. Each week they have a guest on the show and once they even had The Bachelorette herself, Kaitlyn Bristowe :o  

Watch the Thrones

Game of Thrones fans unite!!! I, among the entire world, am a Game of Thrones junkie. Therefore I get great joy from listening to other fans review the show. If you are itching to talk to someone about Game of Thrones latest episode, but none of your friends watch it, then take a listen. Share your love of quality television with people who know a lot about the series. 

These are just a few of my favorites, and there are so many more out there! I am always on the hunt for new podcasts so let me know which ones are your favorites.

Until next time!
