Without a doubt, podcasts have taken over my life. I am one of those people that love having noise no matter what I am doing. Whether it be in the shower, while I am getting ready, on my drive home, or while I am falling asleep, podcasts are easy and convenient, requiring you to only listen, as opposed to reading or watching T.V.
Here is a list of podcasts that are perfect for newcomers and experts alike.
1. My Favorite Murder by Karen Kilgariff and Georgia Hardstark
This podcast is perfect for those who love true crime, but don't like the rather grim reality of what takes place. Every week, comedians Kilgariff and Hardstark get together and tell the story of their latest favorite murder, retelling the tales of famous killers like Ted Bundy, Albert Fish, John Wayne Gacy, and many more. They touch on each story with humor, making each episode enjoyable but intriguing. Sit back and relax while the two grab your attention and leave you asking and wanting more.
If you love Netflix, and wish it was safe to watch the latest episode of your favorite show and drive, then Homecoming is for you.
