Top Ten Favorite Podcasts

I’m a really big fan of podcasts, and I’m really glad this week is an audio freebie, because I knew this would be the perfect time to talk about some of my favorites.  I listen to a lot of podcasts, and picking 10 was really hard!  I know I’ve mentioned most of them before, but I think they’re definitely worth checking out.  All links will take you to the podcast website- except Dear Hank And John, that one goes to a general website for the both of them.

  1. Lore.  It’s a different story every week, and it’s based on a real life story.  I’ve never heard of a lot of the stories that he tells, but they’re all really interesting to listen to.
  2. Welcome To Night Vale.  I am a huge fan of Night Vale, and it’s weird and delightful, and I look forward to every new episode.  They also have a couple of other podcasts now, and I really like Alice Isn’t Dead, but I’m not sure about Within The Wires yet.
  3. Greetings From Nowhere.  It’s random and funny and they have some really interesting conversations.
  4. The Nerdist Podcast.  I only listen to some of the episodes released, but the interviews are always interesting and funny.
  5. The Black Tapes/Tanis.  They’re both done by the same people, so I figured I’d talk about them together. They’re done in the style of Serial (which you can check out here, it’s completely awesome and fascinating), and I love listening to both.  But not at night, because both can be really creepy, and I ended up getting a little freaked out.
  6. Dear Hank And John.  It’s John Green and his brother Hank giving out dubious advice, and it’s hilarious.
  7. The History Chicks.  It’s the only history podcast I’ve been able to get into, but I did come across a few others on iTunes that I still need to listen to.  It’s two women talking about different women in history (and they occasionally do a fictional character, which is always fun), and I love that they include movies, websites and books about the different women they talk about.  They definitely put a lot of work into it.
  8. Gilmore Guys.  I haven’t listened to this one in ages, so I have 20+ episodes I still need/want to listen to but it’s entertaining and a really good recap of Gilmore Girls.
  9. The Grapes Of Rad.  It’s fun to listen to and it’s random and weird and I’m not completely sure I love it so much, but I do.
  10. Overthinking It.  If you like pop culture, this is a really good podcast to listen to.  They talk about movies and t.v. shows and a variety of other topics.  I have to admit that I don’t listen to every single episode- it sort of depends on whether I’m interesting in the topic of the week, but it’s always an interesting listen.

  1. My mom has been pushing me to try Lore for months now. I’ve never listened to Podcasts though, I’m only just now finding interest in audio books. I may break down and try it eventually.
