7 Podcasts You Need To Check Out

7 Podcasts You Need To Check Out That Cover All The Topics You Love

There's one for everyone, trust me.


Over the summer, I got sick of listening to the same songs over and over again and stumbled upon the amazing things known as podcasts.

They're free and can go anywhere you go (assuming you bring your phone or laptop along). Podcasts cover anything and everything from relationships to court cases to hilarious pop culture news and there's one made for everyone. Listed below are just a small glimpse into the world of podcasts and a few of my current personal favorites.

1. Just Break Up

Just Break Up is designed to "bring understanding and a little understanding to the things that might be hard to talk about: that relationship we just can't get over, the compromise that feels like a deal breaker, the text message left on read."

The host's, Sam Blackwell and Sierra Demulder, met as baristas in 2008 and quickly bonded over their love for sad literature and oddly share the same birthday. They give a surgeon general warning at the beginning of each episode that they have no idea what they're doing but that they're here for all of their listeners. The podcast is based off of submissions asking for advice on all things to do with relationships and is currently my personal favorite.

2. In the Dark

Produced by APM Reports and hosted by Madeleine Baran, In The Dark is an investigative podcast designed to raise awareness and prompt positive change through investigative and documentary journalism. In The Dark has two seasons, each on a different specific case and the information Madeleine Baran can dig up about each one.

It's interesting because she ties different cases from surrounding areas into the main case so you learn about multiple cases all at once. Season one focuses on the abduction of the young boy Jacob Wetterling that gave no answers for 27 years.

Season two focuses on Curtis Flowers, a man who has been tried six different times for the same crime and has remained on death row the entire duration. He's won appeal after appeal but it overrides by the prosecutor each time. The is a great podcast to listen to if you're interested in investigative cases and law.

3. Serial 

Created by This American Life and hosted by Sarah Koenig, the podcast tells a true story over the course of one season, similar to earlier mentioned podcast In The Dark. The podcast has won every major award for broadcasting. There's currently three seasons released, each focused on a different case.

Season one focuses on high school senior named Hae Min Lee who disappears one day after school in 1999 in Baltimore, Maryland and a month later her body is found in a city park. Her boyfriend is arrested for the crime and the season toys with the decision of whether or not he's guilty.

Season two focuses on a US Special Operations Team in a Black Hawk helicopter that lands in the hills of Afghanistan and what Bowe Bergdahl has to say about what happened. Season three focuses on the entire legal system in Cleveland to figure out they tackle ordinary cases.

4. What If?

The What If? podcast is directed by the same director as Just Break Up and is designed to ask strange, hilarious, paranormal, tough, and mysterious questions. They then laugh their way through the evaluation until they settle on a conclusion. Hosted by Spencer Wirth-Davis and Ryan Kopperud along with their wide variety of special guests and over 103 different episodes, this is a funny, curious podcast to check out.

5. The Daily

This podcast is run by the New York Times and goes for twenty minutes, five days out of the week and is hosted by Michael Barbaro. The podcast provides a less overwhelming way to keep up with current events, and actually learn a bit of the detail about them.

Each episode is short and focuses on one event in the news that happened instead of blasting you with everything that's going on in the world all at once because let's face it, that can get overwhelming and negative very quickly. Many people listen to this podcast daily and have built it into their everyday routines.

6. The Joe Rogan Experience 

The Joe Rogan Experience is run by the Ameican comedian, actor, sports commentator, and television host Joe Rogan and is a free both audio and video podcast. Beginning in 2009, it now has over 1,000 episodes to its name. Each episode features a new guest and he's had everyone from Elon Musk to Everlast to John Joseph.

The podcast is funny and more light-hearted than some of the others mentioned in this list and he interviews such a wide variety of people that almost anyone can relate to it.

7. Chicks In The office 

Run by Barstool, this podcast is hosted by Ria and Fran and they tackle the biggest stories in pop culture. Run by 'two chicks in the office' they cover everything from celebrity breakups to reality TV shows to answering fan-submitted questions.

Also a hilarious podcast and much more lighthearted than others in this list, this is one of Barstools few connections with the female population as far as trying to bring them into Barstool. Highly recommend this one and any of Barstools other channels!

    If You Aren't A Subscriber To Krist Yu's Youtube Channel, It's Time To Be One

    A foodie, travel vlogger, and motivational queen


    When I go on Youtube, sometimes I just want to put on a nice calm vlog or a creative video. Typically, if I want to relax, I will put on any of Krist Yu's youtube videos on her channels, Krist Soup and krist & yu.

    I have been watching Krist since 2016, and her videos never fail to make me feel happy and inspired. Her videos may seem simple, but she puts an immense amount of effort in editing and makes sure she is satisfied with the video before putting it out for the world to see.

    The first video I ever watched of hers was "I bought a bunch of MANGO flavored things!!! Wut?" Once I finished this video, I binge watched every video on her channel. When I discovered her main channel, it was filled with mostly food inspired videos. A few of my favorites are "Soup of the Day- Weird Kit Kat Flavors" and "Trying the "Perfect Chocolate Chip Cookie" Recipe by Tasty".

    Recently, Krist has also posted more videos on her main channel that aren't food related, and they are filled with just as much creativity and effort. Her second channel definitely has some of my favorite videos as well. From videos discussing her favorite things during a certain month to travel vlogs, I constantly find myself rewatching and binging her channels.

    Her travel vlogs from Portland and Japan are my all time favorites; I probably have watched them four or five times all the way through. I love getting to see these places with her editing style, as well as, what she does in these places while she's visiting.

    She has three videos in her Portland travel vlog series, and I love rewatching them during the holiday season because she visited in winter. If I ever go to Portland, I will be visiting most of the places she did because they all are places I would be interested in checking out.

    The vlogs she made in Japan are so calming and full of fun activities that can be done while visiting. This series consists of 16 videos that are perfect for when you really want to go to Japan but can't drop everything or spend the money that comes along with traveling. One day I would love to travel to Japan, but for now, I have Krist's videos to hold me over.

    Krist also has another channel, and it focuses on her funko pop collection, which I found super interesting because I also love collecting my favorite characters/people in these figures. She hasn't posted on this channel for a year, but I hope she rediscovers it and posts on it more frequently.

    I highly suggest watching Krist Yu on youtube because she is full of positive energy and puts so much time into all her videos. All her efforts deserve more subscribers, plus she'll make you laugh and feel inspired.
