My favorites list: Podcasts

Podcasts are quickly becoming the way people consume their news, tips, and motivation. Podcasts can be played virtually anywhere and without needing to see a screen, it’s not surprising they are gaining popularity FAST. I wanted to hit you today with a quick list of some of my favorite podcasts and my favorite episodes from each one. You might not all share my taste, but I highly recommend giving these a listen!

The Skinny Confidential Him & Her

Okay, so if you follow me on Instagram, you have probably seen me rave about how much I love this podcast! They are so real and open about everything. If you don’t like to hear about raw pain, sex, drama, or anything else that is brutally honest, this is NOT the podcast for you. However, I love it! Here are my favorite episodes, even though I honestly love all of them:

  • 193. Understanding Legal Sex Work with Alice Little – America’s Highest Earning Legal Sex Worker
  • 195. Another Threesome with Sex with Emily
  • 196. Alexis Haines on How She Recovered from Addiction, Jail, Reality TV, & a Life of Abuse
  • 197. Whitney Port on Why She Decided to Return to Reality TV, How to Prepare for Parenthood…
  • 198. How to Build a Life on Your Own Terms with Tait Fletcher
  • 199. Bob Forrest’s True Hollywood Stories

Bossed Up

This podcast is AMAZING for any woman looking to take control of her career and/or start/grow her business! I love listening to Emilie and she has a good mix of short tips (5-10 minutes) or a full podcast (45min-1 hour) depending on how long you want to listen! Here are my favorite episodes, which only apply to me. I am not starting a business so I often skip over those episodes but that doesn’t mean they aren’t there! Here we go:

  • 134. How to Dress like a Boss (This is my ABSOLUTE favorite)
  • 115. My Morning Routine

Plumbing the Death Star

This podcast is for all you nerds out there who love a good laugh, fan theory, or have come up with crazy topics to discuss with other nerdy friends, but never came to a solid conclusion. The guys on this podcast are absolutely hysterical, and they cover all areas of nerd culture – Harry Potter, Star Trek, Star Wars, Marvel, DC, Popular Music, etc. etc. Here are some of the podcasts that made me think and laugh:

  • Which Super Smash Bros. Character Would be Best in a Real Fight
  • Which Fairy tale would you Ruin with your Own Incompetence
  • What’s Wrong with Wizards
  • Hey. Would you prefer Jessie’s Girl or Stacy’s Mum
  • Which Disney Happy Ending Isn’t
  • Where Would you Inevitably Die in Willy Wonka’s Factory
  • What if Professor X Ran Hogwarts
  • How Would you Survive Oz
  • Which Lesson Would you Impart on Young Spider-Man

More Than Normal Podcast

This podcast is actually hosted by two of my greatest mentors growing up! They are open and real on their podcast and don’t take anything TOO seriously, while giving real advice and tips on real life! I recommend ALL of their episodes!

There are also a few one-off podcasts that I like certain episodes from, but I don’t always listen to the podcast itself. Here they are:

  • The Tim Ferriss Show – 371 Derek Sivers on Developing Confidence, Finding Happiness, and Saying “No” to Millions
  • The Tim Ferriss Show: Tim Ferriss Goes to Maximum Security Prision
  • The Joe Rogan Experience – 1306 Wiz Khalifa
  • The Joe Rogan Experience – Neal Brennan
  • Sex with Emily – MESS(y) & Sexy with Kirsten Vangsness
  • Sex with Emily – The “Skinny” on Emily: Part One

I’m still trying to add to my favorite podcasts and episodes, so please let me know if there are any you love and highly recommend, I would LOVE to check them out!
