6 Podcast to Start Right Now

6 Podcast to Start Right Now

I am obsessed with podcasts.


It started while watching Alex, Inc. on Hulu. I forgot how much I enjoyed the variety and selection of what's offered. And, having an Amazon Echo has certainly made it easier to listen to Sticher by just asking for I want to hear.

Needless to say, I have a few favorites and I'd be remiss not share these with you. I would also love to know what you are listening to as well!

I love Alec Baldwin so much and discovering Here's the Thing was like a birthday present. I find him more attractive now that when he was younger. But, this is is a podcast, what he looks like does not really matter.

So it was with pure joy that his voice matches his good looks. He doesn't just talk to the person he is interviewing (and he's interviewing e-v-e-r-y-o-n-e) he's letting us listen in on his conversation. His voice is so smooth and sexy.

Alec Baldwin even makes trash, sewage, and recycling sexy.

Molly Brandenburg and Richard Rossner present Gone from Parcast. They explore famous things that have been lost starting with D.B. Cooper to the latest episode of Oliver Cromwell's missing head.

I quite enjoy how the announcers will tag team the storytelling. Their voices compliment each other perfectly and draw you into the mystery.

Caliphate has just started, as in there is currently just one chapter in this series. I'm counting the days to hear the next episode from reporter Rukmini Callimachi. She is documenting her journey to comprehend the Islamic State and the fall of Mosul.

Rukmini Callimachi is warm and funny at times. She is also resourceful in how she is trying to piece together the people and ideas behind ISIS to share. It's not an easy task. And, I feel genuine fear for her at times. But, thankful to be able to follow as her story unfolds.


6 Podcast to Start Right Now | How it is

Diane Guerrero (you know - from Orange Is The New Black) hosts How it is from Reese Witherspoon's Hello Sunshine media company.

I discovered this one on iTunes and was hooked when I heard the trailer. Reese Witherspoon's voice just spreads sunshine even when discussing uncomfortable issues. Diane Guerrero is a brilliant choice as a moderator. The little old lady in me rolls my eyes at her youthful enthusiasm and slang, but I need to hear it. To be reminded of youthful joy even when sharing truths.

These strong, amazing ladies are tackling the hard conversations and offering valuable information and insight.

6 Podcast to Start Right Now | The 45th

Just when I decided that I would stop following the news and especially any news on 45, this and the next podcast demanded my attention.

The 45th podcast is hosted by Rabia Chaudry and Susan Simpson as they discuss White House news that deserves a second look.

They are also lawyers and have the uncanny ability to break down some of the more confusing legal points to be understood. At least understood enough that I can follow along with the news or at the bar and contribute to the conversation.

They also don't overly bash 45 at least not without having sound reasoning.
