I’ve recently begun listening to podcasts, and while I may be late to the game, I’ve found them both incredibly relaxing and educational. They’re great to get your mind off things while taking a bath, or to entertain yourself while commuting to school or work. Best of all, they’re an accessible way to teach yourself about others and the world around you.
Here are 4 podcasts I’m currently listening to and highly recommend. I hope you’ll enjoy them as well!
Whether you work in the tech industry or not, Recode/Decode talks about a lot of issues that probably surround you, including social media, business and entrepreneurship. It’s hosted by Kara Swisher, who runs Recode, and has guests from every big startup you can think of.
Dan Savage’s popular sex column has branched off into its own podcast, talking about the same topics you love but now with Dan’s wit more audible. If you’re new to the column, Dan is a gay man who started his career giving straight people sex advice, and he’s a big fan of poly or monogamish (yes you read that right) relationships.
3.Death, Sex & Money
Anna Sale has the most welcoming voice, making the hard issues she’s clearly passionate about easier on the ears. The podcast discusses various topics, from cheating to living alone to sex work. She dives into the deep questions that people are often afraid to talk about, and hosts various guests from the very famous to the formerly unknown.
4.Guys We Fucked
Comedians Krystyna Hutchinson and Corinne Fisher not only talk about the guys they fucked, but they even have said guys on the show. Self-proclaimed the anti-slut shaming podcast, Guys We Fucked is a breath of fresh air. Their latest podcast interviewed Amber Rose on organizing Slut Walk and living a life of fame.
