The 4 Best podcasts For Your long Drives

Music can be nice during drives, but you may learn something through podcasts.

The 4 Best podcasts For Your long Drives
Kevin Laminto

We all know that drives can be long and boring, even with music on. Sometimes, music is just not what you want when you are driving. That is when podcasts come in! Podcasts have been getting popular these days and I have hopped on that bandwagon couple years ago and wanted to recommend some podcasts I've been really enjoying, so here is my list!

1. A Piece Of Work with Abbi Jacobson

If you are familiar with the TV show Broad City, you will know Abbi Jacobson. If now, now you know! Abbi is a brilliant comedian, actress, writer, and illustrator, who gained fame through her show, Broad City. But little did you know that she is from a family full of artists and she even went to school for art, so she is very familiar with the art.

These podcasts call all art lovers and museum lovers as she dwells into the deep questions of the modern and contemporary art at MoMA. Each episode is around 20 minutes long and very informative, so I highly recommend!

2. Still Processing by The New York Times

The New York Times presents Still Processing, a culture podcast, with their own personal writers, Jenna Wortham and Wesley Morris. They cover TV shows, movies, art, and music that are worth introducing to their listeners, and they bring such intelligent and intriguing conversations to the table. Wortham and Morris' voices are very 'podcast worthy' as well and will catch your attention right away.

I personally recommend 'Asian-Americans Talk About Racism, and We Listen'. Very interesting, although I may be a little biased here.

3. Revisionist History with Malcolm Gladwell

The author of The Outliers, Blink, The Tipping Point, and David and Goliath, brings his own podcast as well, Revisionist History, where he picks out an event, situation, happening that might have been overlooked or misunderstood and tells us the story of the research and findings that he discovers along the way.

Tough topics such as State v Johnson to other controversial topics are all covered and he breaks everything down so well. A very enjoyable podcast.

4. Bethel Church

Bethel Church has their own podcast with pastor Bill Johnson's sermons of the week. They share all of their amazing sermons and it's quite a holy drive when listening to their sermons.

Drives can be often great for thinking and pastor Bill's sermons will definitely get you thinking!

6 Questions To Ask Yourself When Cleaning Up Your Room

This holiday break is the perfect time to get away from the materialistic frenzy of the world and turn your room into a decluttered sanctuary.


Cleaning isn’t just for spring. In fact, I find school’s holiday break to be a very effective time for decluttering. You’re already being bombarded by the materialistically-infatuated frenzy of society’s version of Christmas, Hanukah, etc. It’s nice to get out of the claustrophobic avarice of the world and come home to a clean, fresh, and tidy room. While stacking up old books, CDs, and shoes may seem like no big deal, it can become a dangerous habit. The longer you hang onto something, whether it be for sentimental value or simply routine, it becomes much harder to let go of. Starting the process of decluttering can be the hardest part. To make it a little easier, get out three boxes and label them Donate, Storage, and Trash. I'm in the middle of the process right now, and while it is quite time consuming, it is also so relieving and calming to see how much you don't have to deal with anymore. Use these six questions below to help decide where an item gets sorted or if it obtains the value to stay out in your precious sanctuary from the world.

Why I Don't Write (Or Read) An "Open Letter To My Future Husband/Wife"

Because inflated expectations and having marriage as your only goal are overrated.

Urban Intellectuals

Although I have since changed my major I remember the feverish hysteria of applying to nursing school--refreshing your email repeatedly, asking friends, and frantically calculating your GPA at ungodly hours of the night. When my acceptance came in I announced the news to friends and family with all the candor of your average collegiate. I was met with well wishes, congratulations, and interrogations on the program's rank, size, etc. Then, unexpectedly, I was met with something else.
