Podcasts are in their prime with an abundance of excellent content out there for your ears to enjoy. Although there are an insane amount of awesome podcasts out there, these are my three personal favorites that I listened to during 2018.

Dax and Monica interview celebrities, experts, writers and more. However, this isn't just any old interview Podcast. Every episode provides enlightening life lessons, reflective insights, and lots of laughs. If you're into well-rounded conversations with high-quality individuals, you'll love this one!
There are some topics that everyone experiences that don't often get discussed just because they're not "polite." Well, Anna Sale doesn't care and busts open the conversation about things that should be talked about more. Each episode of this podcast is a deep dive into a topic that deserves discourse. The team's ability to bring out the human side of big questions and tough topics makes this podcast unique and captivating. From sex workers to student loans, DSM covers it all.
