5 Podcasts That Every College Girl Has Got To Listen To

Typically, I have a bit of a morning commute and when you are by yourself, that commute can get a tad bit lonely.

I have found the solution to this and Y'ALL have got to jump on board.


I thought podcasts were something grandmas listened to and that they had no part in my college life.

Well, I am here to admit that I was oh so wrong (and to admit that I am basically a grandma trapped in a 20 year olds body anyways).

I figured that listening to someone talk for a whole hour or so would be pretty boring.

Here's the deal, podcasts are NOT at all boring, and if you stumble upon one that is, then you are listening to the wrong one.

In fact, they have taught me various life lessons throughout the past few months.

Sure, books, articles, Facebook posts, and many other storytelling methods have a way to do just that as well. However, podcasts have a new way of doing this. You can actually hear someone's voice out loud and in the open as they share their stories, interviews, and encouragement.

This is about to sound extremely cliche, but it feels just like someone is hanging out with you. You no longer feel alone and hopefully not alone in your struggles either!

Gals, for all of you wanting to jump on board and start listening to these lovely chats but don't know where to start, I've got a couple suggestions for ya'.

1. The Happy Hour with Jamie Ivey

HOLY BANANAS, gals. This podcast is going to change your life for the better. Jamie chats about all things from abortion, to religion, to drug addiction, to her new book, as she interviews fellow creatives and anyone willing to share their story. Also, she includes some super upbeat music that is sure to put you in a more upbeat mood on your way to the office.

2. The Glorious In The Mundane

Alright, this podcast is the epitome of inspiring. If you need someone to remind you to relax, take a break, and look for the good in any situation, Christy Nockels is your gal.

3. The Refined Collective Podcast

Kat Harris is a photographer that lives in Brooklyn. She shares bits and pieces of her story and discusses what it's like to be a virgin amidst a society that this is UNHEARD of. You can also catch her interviews with other creatives and be inspired along the way.

4. Girls Night with Stephanie May Wilson

Stephanie was one of the first podcast-ers I started listening to and I just absolutely adored her zeal for life, travel, and the need for community. She dives right into struggles she faced in college and talks a lot about single life and the ways that this season of your life could be used for good! Grab a slice of pizza and join the lovely Stephanie May Wilson in her next conversation!

5. Revelation Wellness

GIRLS. Let's be real. Body image is something that SO many of us struggle with. Without diving way in and discovering the root for all of these negative thoughts about ourselves, we can't heal. HOLY MOLY, it is quite a process. Alisa Keeton knows that healthy doesn't mean a certain number on the scale.

Heck, whether or not you are in college, podcasts are something you have got to jump on board with! Take a second and listen to these words, you won't have a single regret.

Everyone remembers the first time they went to one of the Disney parks. Spinning in teacups and having Goofy wrap his arms around my 8-year-old self were some of my fondest childhood memories, and I'm surely not alone in that.

These Superfood Beauty Products Show Kale And Matcha Work For SO Much More Than We Thought

Just another summer's day with a cold glass of kombucha on my face.

I've been vegan for about six years now, so a love for fresh vegetables and superfoods has now become a core part of my being. Don't get me wrong. I love my indulgent, creamy pastas and truffle fries more than anyone. But I keep most of my focus on eating clean and healthy so I can indulge guilt-free.

But I'd say about a large part of my diet has always, unknowingly, included superfoods. Being Indian, lentils, beetroot, garlic, ginger, and whole grains have been core essentials on the family dinner table since I could digest solid foods.

We Asked You How You Felt About Resuming 'Normal' Activities, And Some Of Your Answers Shocked Us

The New York Times asked 511 epidemiologists when they'd feel comfortable doing "normal" activities again, considering COVID-19. We asked our peers the same thing, for science.

Last month, the New York Times surveyed about 500 epidemiologists asking about their comfort level with certain activities once deemed normal — socializing with friends, going to the doctor, bringing in the mail. That's all well and good for the experts, but they are a very niche group, not the majority of the population. What do "normal" people feel safe doing? In certain states, we've seen how comfortable everyone is with everything (looking at you, Florida), but we wanted to know where Odyssey's readers fell on the comfort scale. Are they sticking with the epidemiologists who won't be attending a wedding for another year, or are they storming the sunny beaches as soon as possible?
