It seems like everyone I know listens to podcasts these days and some of them are really unique and very good. Today I want to mention 3 that I listen to regularly.
- Happier in Hollywood. This is a spin-off, if you will, of Gretchen Rubin’s Happier podcast. It’s hosted by Liz Craft (Gretchen’s sister) and Sarah Fain. They are a great team of Hollywood writers and this podcast is fresh and fun and I really enjoy it. The features include segments about their professional lives, fun stuff about LA, happiness hacks and celebrity sightings. It comes out every Thursday and each episode is around 30-40 minutes.
- Up First. A news podcast from NPR, this comes out every weekday morning by 6am. Each episode is about 12 minutes long and covers the news you need to know to start your day. I like it because it’s just the amount of time I spend putting on my make up – which is when I listen to it – and it keeps me informed about stuff happening here in the US as well as around the world. Because it’s NPR it fits in well with my world views and I appreciate that a lot.
- RadioLab. My nephew Stephen recommended this one to me when we sat together at a wedding this summer. The podcast is actually a rebroadcast of their radio program that airs on public radio stations across the country. The focus is on science and philosphy, history and more. Each episode is unique and interesting and I have learned some really cool things since I started listening. Each episode is about 40-60 minutes long and it comes out sporadically but usually twice per month.
Do you listen to podcasts? I’d love to hear about the ones you enjoy!
