7 Podcasts to Binge At Any Time of the Day

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

This one is perfect for those of us who are stuck at home and looking to pick up a new skill. Francis Lam's creative program features simple recipes, interviews with chefs, and even introduces you to the history of some of your favorite dishes. Plus, Lam always leaves some extra time to answer his audience's questions.

2. My Favorite Murder

Karen Kilgariff and Georgia Hardstark invite all of my fellow true crime lovers to listen to the stories of the most interesting and creepy murders.

3. My Brother, My Brother and Me

If you are in need of some free advice, look no further. This hilarious podcast by the McElroy brothers allows us to understand the meaning of family while listening to them solve their fans' problems in the most bizarre way possible.

4. Political Gabfest

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. Since the group rarely use scripts, you will get their unfiltered reactions to what is currently happening in the world.

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

Hosted by Alex Goldman and PJ Vogt, this podcasts tries to solve mysteries by using the one of the most powerful forces out there: the Internet. The self-declared "Super Tech Support" duo investigates everything from Turbo Tax to that song that one of their listeners just cannot get out of their head.

7. Get Sleepy

Happy listening!

For as long as I can remember, I have been listening to The Beatles. Every year, my mom would appropriately blast “Birthday” on anyone’s birthday. I knew all of the words to “Back In The U.S.S.R” by the time I was 5 (Even though I had no idea what or where the U.S.S.R was). I grew up with John, Paul, George, and Ringo instead Justin, JC, Joey, Chris and Lance (I had to google N*SYNC to remember their names). The highlight of my short life was Paul McCartney in concert twice. I’m not someone to “fangirl” but those days I fangirled hard. The music of The Beatles has gotten me through everything. Their songs have brought me more joy, peace, and comfort. I can listen to them in any situation and find what I need. Here are the best lyrics from The Beatles for every and any occasion.

Small towns certainly have their pros and cons. Many people who grow up in small towns find themselves counting the days until they get to escape their roots and plant new ones in bigger, "better" places. And that's fine. I'd be lying if I said I hadn't thought those same thoughts before too. We all have, but they say it's important to remember where you came from. When I think about where I come from, I can't help having an overwhelming feeling of gratitude for my roots. Being from a small town has taught me so many important lessons that I will carry with me for the rest of my life.

Course registration at college can be a big hassle and is almost never talked about. Classes you want to take fill up before you get a chance to register. You might change your mind about a class you want to take and must struggle to find another class to fit in the same time period. You also have to make sure no classes clash by time. Like I said, it's a big hassle.

This semester, I was waitlisted for two classes. Most people in this situation, especially first years, freak out because they don't know what to do. Here is what you should do when this happens.
