We love a good podcast – it takes the chore out of any chore – driving, cleaning, working out. And they’re such a good way to squeeze some storytelling into an agenda-packed day.
Check out some of our recommendations below.
For the trivia junkie – No Such Thing as a Fish
No Such Thing as a Fish is a delightful British comedy podcast hosted by the writers of the television show QI. Each week, the four hosts bring their favorite fact and they discuss the topic and related topics at hand. The show is always hilarious and always informative.
For those that want the feeling of chilling with your friends – Thirst Aid Kit
Thirst Aid Kit is a silly show about female desire. Essentially, it’s two BFFs waxing poetically on how hot one particular celebrity is for a good hour. It’s full of laughs that make you feel like you’re hanging out with your best friends – but it also questions the role of female desire, representation and opportunity.
For the creative entrepreneur – How I Built this with Guy Raz
For those that want to hear the origin stories of today’s most successful companies, Guy Raz interviews founders who tell all – the crazy ideas, the sleepless nights, the rock bottoms, and ultimately – success. Each episode also includes a budding company on their path to success, so you get an in-depth look of each part of the startup journey.
For the stressed workaholic – Mindfully
You’ve read so much about the mindfulness craze but have no idea how you’d get into it yourself – with work being so busy every day. But mindfulness can help you manage stress, conflict and juggling projects at work as well. We recommend tuning into Mindfully on your drive to work to get the full effect.
For the book lover – Bad People Book Club
Apologies for the shameless plug, but we can’t help but think we’ve got a good thing going. Hosted by two best friends, we discuss books without getting too pretentious. We realize that speaking about literary devices isn’t everyone’s thing – so we try to have a bit of fun with the way we dissect novels. We choose books by women of color and relate them back to the zeitgeist – by asking ‘quick and dirty’ questions such as Write a Tinder Bio for one of the characters, Would you Rather?, and Best Clapback.
