Podcasts Worth Listening to on Spotify

I think the first podcast I listened to was in 2009 on my iPod Nano (neon blue and engraved with my name, because it was the ‘00s and that’s just how it worked) and it probably lasted only a solid five minutes.

We’ve come a long way since then, and now I’m kind of obsessed.

I’ve compiled a few binge-worthy podcasts below that can suit a wide range of interests.

1. The Daily

This podcast is ideal for anyone, really. Staying informed on the current happenings of our world is oh-so-important. If you have around 20 minutes to spare, defiantly tune into your daily dose of the most important news of the day. Perfect for walking to and from class.

2. Girl Boss

Girl Boss Radio’s host is Sophia Amoruso (founder of NastyGal). After reading her book, #Girlboss, I knew this podcast would be a new favorite. Also, with a title like Girl Boss, you really can’t help but want to listen. Amoruso interviews influential women who are making bold moves in our society. The podcasts include stories of hardships and inspiring moments along with helpful advice from other women. Perfect for when you’re procrastinating and need a little boost of ‘Let’s do this, self!’. Oh, and it’s totally binge-able.

3. Serial Killers

Ok, so, hear me out. The title is definitely not misleading. If you get frightened easily, maybe skip over this one. But, if you’re someone who is fascinated by horror stories and creepy stuff, this one is for you. In a nutshell, each episode focuses on a true serial killer story. It’s almost like a series of mini-documentaries, except in podcast form.

4. Guys We F#@$!d

The anti slut-shaming podcast. Love it. No matter your relationship status, it’s definitely worth tuning in. The hosts tell candid stories about hookups gone wrong, weird ex-boyfriends, and even interview some of them (!). The goal of this podcast is to make the world more sex-positive and not be afraid to share personal experiences in fear of being judged.
