Podcasts have been getting me through working from home. In between my calls during the day, I struggle with not being able to get up and talk to anyone (aside from my husband), so I’ve been relying heavily on podcasts to help occupy my time. There’s something so nice about putting in my Air Pods, tuning out the world, and getting lost in a podcast.
If you know me, you know I have some odd interests – I enjoy both television shows and podcasts that have anything to do with murder, unsolved cases, and missing persons. My husband thinks I’m crazy, and I’m not really sure why I enjoy it all, but I do and that’s that.
I’ve seen a few people posting on Facebook this week asking for podcast recommendations, so I wanted to share a few of my favorites with you all (both true crime and non-crime).
This is my favorite podcast ever. End of story. The co-hosts, Ashley Flowers and Brit Prawat, cover cases including murder, missing persons, and serial killers, which sounds super dark, and it is, but they do a great job of telling the whole story without bias. Clearly, these are not happy stories, but there's a weird sense of relief when they close the podcast by saying that the murderer was behind bars.
This is one that I’m just now getting into, also hosted by Ashley Flowers. She dives into the bizarre true crime experiences that have no explanation, and let me tell you, this one is a good one that leaves you thinking. I tend to listen to this one while showering (TMI?) because it goes along with those "curing world hunger" thoughts I tend to have with myself. I listened to one episode the other day called Flight 19, and y’all, this one has me scratching. my. head. I won’t ruin it for you, but you need to listen for yourselves. You won’t regret it, I promise.
Hosted by Angela and Christopher Braniff, the North Carolina locals discuss everything from being parents, to what’s going on in the world. Even though we don’t have kids yet, I love how they are still relatable. This is a great one for driving on the highway because it’s like you’re hanging out with two friends you’ve known forever.
Everyone knows who Dave Ramsey, the financial guru, is. I listen to his podcast when I’m feeling like a financial idiot, to be honest. Half of the time, I feel like we make poor financial decisions, so listening to Dave and his ways to get out of debt and how to meet your financial goals really does help.
These are just a few of my favorite podcasts – I hope maybe you’ll find one that you like! What types of podcasts do you listen to: true crime, pop culture, financial, self-growth? I want to know – let me know in the comments below!
