7 Podcasts To Listen To This Winter


I’ve been a sucker for Podcasts the last few weeks and you guys, my addiction is at an all time high. I really didn’t realize how much I actually enjoy listening to all of these amazing books. If you’re like me, I’ve been really having trouble sitting down to read a book the last few months ( or really 9 months after having Landon ) and I do have a long commute to work each day.
 Instead of going to the library ( hello I’m a librarian so of course I’ll be there all the time! ) I opted to get a few podcasts to listen to on the way into work on my phone. You all suggested so many great ones that I couldn’t wait to get started. Of the ones I’ve listened to thus far, here are a few I’m excited to share with you!

1. In The Dark - True-crime devotees, this one’s for you: It follows the very sad tale of a child abduction that happened 27 years ago, the investigation that followed and the unexpected ripples it continues to cause decades later.

2. 2 Dope Queens - Hosted by writer and actress Phoebe Robinson and former Daily Show correspondent Jessica Williams, 2 Dope Queens is a live show and podcast featuring their favorite comedians and candid discussions about sex, hair, race, and life in New York City. From bikini lines to the many faces of Nicolas Cage, season 3 is sure to make you laugh out loud.

3. Gilmore Girl Guys- If you love watching TV, reading recaps, and dissecting episodes online, Gilmore Guys will be a treat. One host is a diehard Gilmore Girls fan, while the other is new to the show; together they analyze every episode of the show including the recent Netflix installments. Whether you watched the show in real time or just started streaming, this podcast will bring you all the intel that Stars Hollow and its zany characters have to offer.

4. Crimetown- If you loved the first season of Serial and were disappointed that the second season didn't have the same level of suspense, Crimetown could be just the podcast for you. In fact, one of the hosts produced and co-wrote the series "The Jinx: The Life and Deaths of Robert Durst." Crimetown takes place in Providence and covers the crime and corruption that goes all the way up the mayor.

5. S-Town- What starts as the exploration of the dark side of a small town in Alabama at the request of a listener turns into a look into one man's life and how it affected so many others. (It also continues to reveal more disturbing details about the town including the blatant racism that the podcast's subject John D. had warned the host about from the start.)   The real title of S-Town is NSFW, but you can probably guess what the "S" means.
6. Modern Love- The Modern Love column from the New York Times explores all sorts of love–romantic, family, heartbreak, friendship, and more. The podcast, which is produced by NPR, brings these personal essays to life with readings by famous people from Peter Gallagher to Cynthia Nixon to John Cho. Hosts Meghna Chakrabarti (WBUR) and Modern Love editor Daniel Jones sometimes even get updates from the essay writers.

7. Oprah’s Super Soul SundayThis inspirational series features programs that nourish the mind, body and spirit while offering insights into living one's best life. "Super Soul Sunday" explores issues that include spirituality, the afterlife and personal fulfillment. A regular feature of the program is Oprah's Soul Series, a series of in-depth conversations between the former talk show host and some of the most recognized spiritual thinkers of our time. Other segments of the show include feature-length documentaries and short-form content.

  1. I have always been a fan of Oprah's Soul Sunday, had no idea it was a podcast. Truthfully I am not a big fan of podcasts and the reason is I am to lazy to listen to the whole thing. I will have to check out 2 Dope Queens though, this sounds like something I would like.
