We’ve come up with a list of podcasts that we love, so if you want to laugh, feel inspired, and feel engaged, you’ve come to the right place!

If you’ve never experienced the comedic genius of Grace Helbig and Mamrie Hart, then get ready for the podcast you never knew you needed. Helbig and Hart are known for their wacky, incredibly hilarious videos on YouTube and have recently converted their episodic variety show The Might Get into a podcast. The two tell crazy stories, talk about nonsense, and make fun of themselves with a witty self-awareness and chill we all need right now. Just a warning: this podcast is so funny you might end up doing an involuntary spit-take.

2. Sincerely, Hueman

Aptly titled “Sincerely Hueman: Stories on Positivity and Social Good,” this podcast is proof that there is more than enough good to go around. Hosted by Camille Laurente and Maverick Shawn Aquino, each episode follows and features a different story of humans from all walks of life spreading positivity and creating change in their lives and in the lives of others. From philanthropists to entrepreneurs to filmmakers, each story is unique, poignant, and crafted with love and care to give listeners an inspiring look into what social good can do.  

3. Pretty Big Deal with Ashley Graham

If you don’t know, Ashley Graham is a supermodel, style icon, body activist and all around awe-inspiring human being. Pretty Big Deal offers listeners the privilege of listening to intimate conversations Graham has with guests about topics such as beauty, culture, politics, and unashamedly owning who you are. Featuring celebrities like Kim Kardashian West and Amy Schumer, each episode is incredibly heartfelt and honest, detailing the ways in which successful and influential women are blazing their own paths.

4. Two Less Lonely Girls

Two Less Lonely Girls is the Bieber podcast you never knew existed but we know you’ll love. It is hosted by the lovely Rosebud Baker and Corinne Fisher, who take listeners on the wild ride of what it’s like to totally and unapologetically love Justin Bieber. But don’t worry; you don’t have to be a pre-teen, or a die-hard “Belieber” to enjoy this podcast. Each episode offers a take on the total insanity of celebrity pop culture with the humor and zeal of two adults “stalking” a Canadian YouTube sensation-turned-popstar.

5. The Argument

If you want to stay informed of political issues but the idea of debating with other people makes you break out in hives, this is the podcast for you. Produced by The New York Times, The Argument is a podcast that seeks to educate viewers on the different arguments used by both sides of the political spectrum.  Each week, New York Times Opinion columnists David Leonhardt, Michelle Goldberg, and Ross Douthat debate and discuss hot-button issues in the news to search for political common ground and to help you form your own opinion.

Happy listening!
