Podcasts to help cope with the stress of quarantine

With all this spare time, you might be able to become that friend who listens to podcasts. If you need some ideas of where to start, here are some of my favorite podcasts that lift my spirits despite the stress of quarantine. 

  1. 1. Psychobabble 

    with Tyler Oakley & Korey Kuhl 

    This podcast is honestly so funny and has remained in my rotation despite having fallen out of my intense youtube fandom phase. It always makes me laugh and they manage to distract from the craziness going on in the world right now. 

  2. 2. Lovett or Leave It 

    with Jon Lovett 

    This is a political podcast, and they do talk about COVID19 and other current events, but they put a comedic spin on everything. They also help make politics a little more accessable, if in the past you've struggled to get involved. They deffinitely have a liberal lean, though, if that is something you are dissinterested in. 

  3. 3. Tiny Meat Gang

    with Noel Miller & Cody Ko

    If you're seeking true distraction, this vulgar and hilarious podcast will do the trick. I literally can't be sad when I listen to it. AND...they don't talk about cornoavirus. 

  4. 4. Science Friday

    from WNYC 

    Leaning more toward the educational side, SciFri is a must for anyone trying to expand their mind a little durring this coronacation. It's completely accessable and informative, and the guy's voice is also 10/10 soothing. 

  5. 5. nofilmschool

    NFS co.

    Aspiring film maker? Movie buff? This is the podcast for you. It gives great (and attainable!!) advice and is full of genuinely interesting conversations. 

  6. 6. Rookie

    Rookie Mag 

    Perfect for the Her Campus Girl, Rookie is empowering and inspirational. With influention women frequently featured on the podcast, you are sure to feel uplifted and excited about your future. My personal favorite eposide is the one featuring actress Winona Rider. 

  7. 7. Getting Curious 

    with Johnathan Van Ness

    This icon from hit Netflix show "Queer Eye" is as funny over audio as he is on the screen. With insightful questions and equally entertaining answers, you're sure to get hooked. 

  8. 8. Sleep With Me

    Having trouble sleeping? This is your fix. As a chronic insomniac myself, I can vouch for it's efficacy. It's essentially this guy telling rambling bedtime storries until you fall asleep. And it's great. You just gotta hear it to understand.
