Hey hey, it’s MJ,
So I drive to work every morning and sometimes I just don’t want to listen to music so I plug my phone in to listen to podcasts and some I have been listening to for years, some have ended, and some are rather new finds in my life.
I don’t listen as regularly as I used to but at the moment I am doing a deep dive and trying to catch up on a podcast that started in like 2016 and I found through Spotify late last year and have been listening to pretty consistently on my drive to and from work because I love it.
This is not a comprehensive list because there are some podcasts that I have listened to in the past that I no longer enjoy, does that mean that you can’t go out and find your own faves? No, but if you have a sense of humor like I do you might like some of these.
So what do I listen to when it comes to podcasts?
The Jenna Julien Podcast:
This is one of those podcasts that is no longer still updating but there are so many episodes on the apple podcast app or the video podcast on YouTube. Jenna Marbles is still by far one of my favorite YouTubers and her podcast with her boyfriend Julien has made me laugh hysterically on more occasions than I can count. When I moved here I was in a lot of pain on my drive down and their podcast and laughing so hard was one of the only things that actually made my drive bearable. A few of my favorite episodes include any of their Shark Tank episodes, Snake Oil, Don’t Even Get Me Started, and quite a few others.
Ask Iliza Anything:
This is one of those podcasts that I need to catch back up on because Iliza Shlesinger is my favorite comedian. Her brand of comedy is right up my alley and I really like listening to her answer peoples questions while still having witty banter with her assistant and a guest if she has one. It will be a common theme on a lot of these podcasts that they are funny because I love a good funny podcast.
Welcome To Night Vale:
I have been listening to this podcast since I was in college because I was on my college radio station and sometimes it felt like this. I love radio dramas and this one is not only long form but also amazingly well written. It’s fantastical and hilarious. I cannot give this podcast enough praise for pulling me in and not letting me go. I have listened to it all the way through at least three times and I now need to catch up again because I got into a funk listening to podcasts during 2020 where I didn’t. If you like weird, this podcast is for sure for you.
Good Morning Night Vale:
This is a behind the scenes look at Welcome To Night Vale by people who are on the show and I love seeing behind the scenes looks at things that I enjoy, so hearing people talk about this show is always fun. I for sure also need to catch up on this one as well but that will be eventually because I have so many podcasts to catch up on!
Wizard and The Bruiser:
This is the one that I just started a few months ago and I am already like 30 episodes in and it’s all geeky and stuff which I love. There are a lot of episodes about things that I don’t really know about, so to have a podcast telling me the histories of pop culture figures, comic book heroes, and everything else. It’s really fun to listen to and I find myself laughing out loud in the car to myself on the way to and from work.
There are for sure other podcasts I have listened to and I have enjoyed them but these are the ones that I am trying to catch up on at the moment. I would love to expand my podcast repertoire, and eventually I will but at the moment I wanted to just share a few here and now.
There are so many podcasts out there, and I mean so many. I could never have a podcast because I would just ramble and vomit words out of my mouth, like I do here but less talking. I don’t even know what I would talk about, I do talk a lot but not much of it is productive. I will leave the podcasting up to the people who are good at it.
I will be back over the weekend with another post, so until then, I hope that everyone has a good rest of your week. Remember stay happy and healthy, make good choices, be a nice person, and most of all be you.
