I've always really liked podcasts, but during the last couple of months I've gotten really into podcasts. A lot of that has to do with the fact that I commute via public transportation now and I try to go on as many walks as possible on my days off. I've also found myself in a rut with music lately, so podcasts have been a nice placeholder for when I would normally be blasting music.
Couples Therapy ~ Easily one of my favorite podcasts ever is Couples Therapy, which is done by Candice and Casey Neistat. In the podcast, Candice and Casey discuss their marriage, parenthood, and mental health. I have watched Casey's YouTube videos prior to listening to this podcast, however the podcast definitely shows a far more personal side to him and his relationship with his wife . I love this podcast because it portrays relationships in such a real and relatable way that is both cringey at times (because of how relatable their issues are) and genuinely funny. I also really appreciate how candid Candice is when she discusses her mental health and her journey in therapy, as its a topic I feel very passionate about but all-too-often is not discussed in mainstream media.
My Favorite Murder ~ If you like true crime and haven't listened to My Favorite Murder then I'm going to assume you've been living under a rock for the past couple of years. It's definitely a more comedic take on true crime than a more investigative-type podcast like the ever-popular Serial. This podcast definitely includes a lot of improvisation chat between Karen and Georgia, which is normally very entertaining, but the actual content of the true crime stories they discuss are also really interesting and their humor adds a bit of levity to an otherwise morbid subject. SSDGM!
Getting Curious with Jonathan Van Ness ~ If you have ever watched the new version of Queer Eye on Netflix, you will have experienced the wonderfulness that is Jonathan Van Ness. While he covers the grooming and self-care section on Queer Eye, on his podcast he covers a wide range of topics from religion to history to current events. Jonathan brings in an expert from the field he is curious about and discusses in easy-to-understand terms otherwise complicated topics. This one's definitely a nice one to listen to if you want to get your fix of current events but want something a bit more fun and lively to listen to.
Hashtag Authentic ~ This one's for all you creatives out there. This podcast is hosted by Sarah Tasker of the instagram account Me and Orla. Sarah has a lot of wisdom to share when it comes to the world of social media and creative jobs in general, but she also brings in a variety of hosts who also specialize in . It's definitely a career-related podcast that is meant to give you a kick up the rear if you're feeling a bit unmotivated, but it's also approachable enough that if you're just starting to venture into the creative world you won't feel overwhelmed.
