Another podcast list is coming your way!! Can you even stand the excitement?!?! I just keep finding more that I like and then listening to them and they’re all just so good!
Ever since I moved, however, I’ve found that I’m listening to podcasts a lot less. I used to have them going CONSTANTLY when I lived alone – while making dinner, while cleaning, while getting ready in the morning – but now that I live with someone else, I just don’t do that as much anymore. I’m up and out the door before my roomie gets going for the day, so I don’t want to blast unnecessary noise, and in the evenings we are chatting! I’m still listening to them at work when I’m doing mindless tasks, but I have to admit, having less time to listen is making me be more selective about the shows I’m listening to and that probably isn’t a bad thing!
Here are 5 new podcasts that I’ve started listening to lately!
I’ve loved following Hilary online and on Instagram for years now (she’s the one who had that GORGEOUS elopement in France that I was obsessing over!!) and so when she announced that she was making a podcast, I was SO EXCITED to listen. She’s only released 10-ish episodes so far, so you can go catch up rather quickly if you’d like, and I highly recommend that you do. She gives great advice and just talks about topics like friendship, dating, fashion, fitness, and more with enthusiasm and honesty where I believe that she knows what she’s talking about and she isn’t trying to seem like a know-it-all. Does that make sense? Just go listen, and you’ll see what I mean!
This podcast by Annie F. Downs is genuinely fun!! Annie is a speaker and author that is pretty well known in the Christian women world, and it’s super fun to listen to her talk with her friends and with people that you know and love, like David Crowder, Ben Higgins, Ben Rector, Elisabeth Hasselbeck, and more. She’s currently going through “Enneasummer” where she’s talking about each of the numbers of the Enneagram with a male and female person that identify as that number. It’s great insight to hear from both genders, and just to learn more about each number!
If you love deep dives and details about certain pop culture phenomenons, then Binge Mode is for you. I have been listening to it as I’m listening to the Harry Potter audiobooks. I finish a group of chapters of the book, and then I’ll go listen to the Binge Mode episode for that range of chapters! They do deep dives into characters, themes for the chapters, and things that you might have missed or just not thought about before. They more recently did a deep dive of the last season of Game of Thrones, so if you watched that and wanted to know even more, then go give it a listen!
This one is just silly and for fun! Topher Grace, the actor, has a different celebrity guest for each episode and they learn something new – but the twist is that the celeb has NO IDEA what they’ll be doing before coming on the episode! Sometimes it’s hilarious and both of them are terrible, but a few times it’s worked out where the celeb guest is actually good at or has experience in the adventure already! I just listened to an episode where he and Chrissy Metz were going to learn to beatbox and she said “oh I’m kinda good at that!” – and she was!!
Some of my favorite memories from college are watching The Hills with friends at night in our dorm rooms (oh man that show was so bad but so good!!!!!) and I’ve loved Lauren Conrad ever since. It’s been fun watching her try new things and grow professionally, and she always seems to have it all together… so you can imagine that I was excited to hear that she was starting a podcast where she’d talk to experts in different industries to give tips and advice! So far she’s talked to her hair stylist, an interior designer, an organizing professional, a makeup artist – I can’t wait for more episodes to come out!
