7 Podcasts to Binge At Any Time of the Day
Start writing a post

As someone who is an avid Netflix binge-watcher, I never found myself particularly intrigued by podcasts. I thought they were reserved for a small percentage of the population that was both intellectual and perhaps a little pretentious. For a long time, I could not find a single podcast I really clicked with.

However, I recently discovered that podcasts are not actually solely for the elite. It takes time to find one that speaks to you, and it took a lot of trial and error for me personally. Eventually, I ended up finding not one, not two, but a whole range of different series that are readily available to the public. Whether you like to listen during a drive to the grocery store or prefer using it as background noise in the comfort of your own home, I can guarantee that at least one of these podcasts will become your new favorite.

1. The Splendid Table

Plus, Lam always leaves some extra time to answer his audience's questions.

2. My Favorite Murder

It is more important than ever to be politically educated today, and that's exactly what this podcast is for. Run by John Dickerson, Emily Bazelon, and David Plotz since 2005, the trio discusses the most salient news of the week.

5. iWeigh

If you are a fan of the iconic television show The Good Place, you'll love this podcast run by our very own Jameela Jamil. Jamil came up with the title after starting her own movement known as "#iWeigh" which aims to encourage people to focus on their accomplishments rather than the number on the scale. She interviews stars like Reese Witherspoon and Demi Lovato to discuss shame, the social media industry, and even share some embarrassing stories.

6. Reply All

As a college student, my backpack is an extension of myself in many ways. It contains my notes, pens, and computer vital for my success in college.

It also contains the "in-case" items that help put my mind at rest if I forgot something from home: extra hair ties, masks, and that backup-backup snack. With so much in my backpack important to me and my life on campus, it is no wonder that I can get apprehensive about it when it is not with me or in my line of sight. And that makes me wonder.

When Sony announced that Venom would be getting a stand-alone movie, outside of the Tom Holland MCU Spider-Man films, and intended to start its own separate shared universe of films, the reactions were generally not that kind. Even if Tom Hardy was going to take on the role, why would you take Venom, so intrinsically connected to Spider-Man's comic book roots, and remove all of that for cheap action spectacle?
