If Valentine's Day isn’t your cup of tea, then we’ve got a podcast that deals with big questions outside of love and romance. On this aptly named podcast, host Anna Sale takes on the three topics that we love to hate to talk about: Death, Sex, & Money. During every episode, you will hear from celebrities and regular people talking about how they handle the big stuff in their lives: relationships, money, family, work, and the mistakes they’ve made along the way. This podcast will help you contend with your own “questionable” decisions too.

After two successful movies, Will Farrell is bringing Anchorman into the podcast age with The Ron Burgundy Podcast. Reprising his iconic role as Ron Burgundy, Farrell engages in rapid-fire interviews with unassuming guests, tackles the neverending complexity of podcast genres (even though Burgundy doesn’t know what a podcast is) and learns the correct pronunciation of the word “Meme” and what it means in the first place. If you love the Anchorman franchise and need something hysterically funny to listen to, this podcast won’t let you down.
