I have a confession to make: I am addicted to podcasts. I spend so many hours each week with my hands, feet and eyes busy-- in the studio, running, driving-- and podcasts which are free, diverse, and entertaining are how I roll. This one, Getting Curious, is one of my favorites. Jonathan Van Ness from Queer Eye has fascinating ("gorgeous!") guests and is a amazingly good interviewer who gets deep but stays funny throughout each episode ("cute!"). Some weeks, I listen to him every day. Depending on my mood, I have another 20 I turn to. These are my go tos:
When I want someone to tell me a story, I turn to: The Moth, This is Actually Happening, This American Life, Strangers, Snap Judgement and Story Corps
When I want to get some perspective on history, I love: Slow Burn
When I need some inspiration, I tune in to: Inflection Point, Trained, The Science of Happiness & Magic Lessons
When I feel like getting smart: Hidden Brain, TED Radio Hour, Invisiblia, Stuff You Should Know, 99 Percent Invisilbe, Fresh Air, Note to Self, Radiolab and The Drive
When I only have 15 minutes but want to be entertained: Song Exploder is perfect!
and because I still am a criminal justice major at heart, I can't get enough: Ear Hustle, Convicted, Caught, Atlanta Monster, In the Dark and S-Town
I'm sure it's annoying (sorry, family and friends!) but I am constantly recommending particular podcasts to people I feel they would resonate with. And I would LOVE to get your feedback! Do you love podcasts too? What are your favorites? Wait, I can't hear you! Let me take my headphones off...
