10 Podcasts That You Should Have Started Listening To, Like, Yesterday

Podcasts are the new Netflix, and you better catch on if you haven't already.

Honestly, who doesn't love a good podcast? They're almost like Netflix, without the commitment and you can indulge in them while driving. I'd like to consider myself as a podcast fanatic, so here are 10 podcasts that I've been obsessed with recently.

"My Favourite Murder"

Giphy

For those of us who love true crime, this one is for you. Georgia and Karen discuss crime, funny stories and life in the most comedic, heartfelt way possible. This podcast has gotten me through exam stress, the five-hour ride home from school and some of the toughest parts of my undergraduate career so far. Plus, who doesn't love to hear all about unsolved (and solved) murder cases?

"Hidden Brain"

If you're more interested in podcasts that teach you all about real-world issues, societal norms and how to address them or just want to hear in-depth discussions about the world at large, this is for you. While my description may seem less like a binge-worthy extravaganza, and more so like your worst 8 am lectures- Hidden Brain is far from that. This podcast deals with everything from Hook-Up Culture (episode 61, my personal fave) to the science of fear and what drives our emotions to the edge (episode six). So, if you want to learn something from your podcast, give this one a go.

"You Can't Sip With Us"

Giphy

Who doesn't love best friends getting drunk and talking about real life? Sounds like a Friday night for me and my roommates (or this amazing podcast). From chats about love to comfort shopping, you can't sip with us sounds like coming home to your best friends to talk about life.

"The World At Six"

Even if you're not Canadian, "The World at Six" should be at the top of your list of things to listen to. This podcast takes half an hour to tell you everything of interest that has happened in the world, the news you need to know and the news that no one knows. This podcast was introduced to me by one of my journalism professors who told me that he listened to it religiously in order to keep up to date. For those of you who love the news or just want to get more into listening to it, give this podcast a try.

"Souls at Sundown"

This wonderful listen is created by Meghan Hughes, who is a Youtuber. Meghan talks about sustainable living, music, sex, social media, society and everything in between. All while having short breaks in her chat to play music she has been loving. Her upbeat, positive personality makes me so happy and is probably the reason she is one of my favourite content creators!

"Revisionist History"

This podcast is similar to "Hidden Brain" except it discusses historical issues and concepts. I've just started listening to this one so I can't say it's one of my ride-or-die podcasts yet, but it's definitely working its way up there. History buffs, this one is for you.

"Call Her Daddy"

If you have a Tinder, Twitter or just go to any post-secondary institute, you've probably heard of this one. Two friends sit and talk about hookups, dating and just funny stories that are bound to happen while you're figuring yourself out. If you like to laugh and want something relatable, give this a go.

"Who? Weekly"

If you're interested in celebrity and pop culture this one's for you. "Who? Weekly" is pretty much Us Weekly in podcast form. It talks about pop culture's greatest and worst moments and everything you need to know about Hollywood's icons.

"Dark Poutine"

On trend with much of the previous listed, "Dark Poutine" tells folk tales, true crime stories, legends, history, folklore and then some, and all from real Canadians. If you're like me and grew up hearing tales of haunted cabins in Muskoka or how your local hockey rink was definitely haunted, you'll love this. Even if you grew up, or live outside Canada, you'll love hearing crazy stories all about the spooky side of Canada.

 "Food Busker's Cult Food Stories"

If you're obsessed with food and culture like I am, give this a listen. John Quilter discusses (and eats) amazing dishes from around the world and tells us about the rich history behind his meals. He also talks with locals, friends and food fanatics all about these dishes, where to get the best versions of them and how to make them. To be listened to on a full stomach or while cooking.

This Survey Shows How Quarantine And Drinking Relate, And I Can't Say I'm Surprised

"5 o'clock somewhere" is more of a guideline now than ever.

As it stands, and my friends and I are finally 21. We're extremely excited to be able to go out to bars and "get lit" as the kids say, but due to the pandemic, all of our plans have been put on hold. We'd rather wait and go when it's safe than risk spreading the infection and hurting our loved ones. So, we've all been quarantining apart, getting on the occasional wine zoom call. This made me wonder if anyone else our age were doing the same thing.

Then, I discovered this survey: We Surveyed Millennials And Gen Z About Their Quarantine Drinking Habits — Cheers. Here are 3 things that I discovered through the survey results.

17 Things To Make You Feel GOOD This Week

Because some purchases are just necessary.

Y'all, we're struggling. You don't even have to tell me, I know. What a mess we're all in, right? This year is not going how we planned and the world has turned into one giant struggle bus. I guess you could be super philosophical about everything happening for a reason, but sometimes life is just hard.

There are plenty of ways to bring yourself out of whatever rut you're in. You could go for a run, have a snack, or read a book. Or, if you're really looking for an adrenaline rush, go shopping. This is obviously not going to solve the world's problems with one swift click of the "checkout" button, but hey, it may just give you the little boost you need today.

- Blissfully unaware that butt-care beyond squats was even something I should be considering in my self-care routine, I tried one of Bawdy Beauty's butt masks for the first time a month ago.

- I've never really given my butt a second though till I took a look at improvements that could be made with the mask — if one of the hydrating, firming, detoxifying, or brightening masks in the kit I received could either smooth out cellulite or tone my skin a bit more, I wasn't going to complain.

- Each Bawdy Beauty sheet mask comes in an individually-packaged sheet, soaked with a serum I massaged into my skin after removing said sheet. The clay butt mask comes in a convenient stick format I simply draw on to my skin and leave to set for about 10 minutes before hopping into the shower.

- I set a goal of committing myself to butt-care every day for one month. Between the regular use of sheet masks, clay masks, and their CBD Butt Balm in between, I didn't have many expectations.

- I thought the whole concept may just be a gimmick, but my butt has never looked so toned in my life, and the cellulite I had is almost completely gone. I wear one every single day when I get the chance.

I'm incredibly skeptical when it comes to marketing ploys and gimmicks in the beauty world. I'll be the first cynic to try out the latest serum on the market every influencer is raving about just to negate every grandiose claim it makes.

Friends, you don't have to be quarantined to use a personal massager, you know? Because, sure, quarantine made for a lot of extra quality time with yourself, but no matter what phase of the reopening process you're in, it's normal and actually healthy to take care of your sexual needs on your own.
