This year I have really gotten into podcasts. Sometimes when I don't feel like listening to music, I just pop in my headphones and listen to a podcast. The topics for podcast range from self-help to murder mystery, and that is one of the reasons podcasts have become so popular this year. They are perfect for walking to class, taking a shower or right before you go to sleep.

That being said, there are so many great podcasts out there, and such little time to listen, so I have compiled my top 5 favorite podcasts of the year!

1. Gals On The Go

"Kayln's Coffee Talk" was the first podcast I listened to, and it changed the game for me! Kayln is such an inspiration and talks about all things motivation and self-improvement tips.

"Eating Alone In My Car" podcast is exactly what it sounds like, and it is the perfect podcast for when you just need to sit back and listen. Melissa Broder, author of "So Sad Today," eats in her car (a new food every episode) and talks about her life, her mental health struggles, and funny experiences.
