My podcast intake has increased recently as I wanted to diversify my media consumption. Though many included are more entertainment, others expand to education or new ideas. All can be found on most podcast apps while some are also on soundcloud and YouTube.
For those of you who enjoy the characters of fiction, I hold this podcast highly. I do prefer listening to the episodes where I have consumed the media mentioned before though you can dive in blindly as they include summaries.
I recommend the episode about National Treasure. It is full of jokes and crazy turns. If you prefer crazy original tangents try the Christmas edition podcasts. The hosts were presented with a title of a real Christmas movie and presented their ideas of what the plot is by it alone. One of the highlights is a movie called the Custom Mary as both the real and fake plots were outrageously quirky.
The people featured come from all walks of life and the rawness from the live performance adds to the enjoyment. Each story is powerful in its presentation and their uniqueness. Very useful for short time intervals as each episode is made up of three short stories.
I would encourage you to start listening by examining the titles that interest you and then range out from there as there is a diversity of stories.
This duo embraces nostalgia and their friendship to create a humorous movie podcast. A major plus is that you don’t have to watch the movie to enjoy the podcast. I find it fun to examine the childhood classics under lens of adult maturity.
I suggest starting with a movie you are familiar with to get the utmost enjoyment. I started with Who Framed Roger Rabbit? with Elliot Morgan as the guest.
Love is universal and can be so varied as evident by this podcast and the New York Times Column it comes from. I find so much wisdom from the emotion and experiences which are read by celebrities. Also often after the story the host often invites the writer to give a reflection/update about the story and the insight from the editor of the column.
I advise a listen to any one of them though you may be treated to heart-warming or heart-break. A few options from me to you are: In A Small Bag, Seeing the World Through My Wife’s Eyes, and/or DJ’s Homeless Mom.
If you enjoy true crime and comedy this podcast is a great combination. The hosts, Karen Kilgariff and Georgia Hardstark, embraced their interests to create an entertaining show that has a wide following as seen by their expansive tours.They accept their flaws and hold awareness to real important issues.
I understand that this one is not for everyone but it is worth the shout-out.
I would advise starting from the beginning in order to appreciate the little jokes and throwbacks throughout the episodes.
The podcast features a unique concept as the host, Chris Gethard, answers a call from a random stranger who call ins. Though I have only listened to a few episodes, I am deeply invested due to the wide range of topics and the real quality due to the lack of identity.
I recommend starting with whatever topic/title grabs your interest. For me I started with Hipster Chaplin because I realized that order doesn’t matter.
These are just a few for now. Have a listen and let me know which ones you enjoyed.
