A Podcast for Every Mood

I am definitely not an early adopter of podcasts. I just started listening to them when Serial Season 1 arrived on the airwaves. I guess that was around 2014. Fast forward to today and I subscribe to 30 podcasts on the regular.

Here’s a list of my fave podcasts and when I listen to them:

When you’re looking for a mix of entertainment and life advice – listen while cooking, tidying up, painting the fence:

Anna Faris is Unqualified

What’s the Tee (RuPaul)

Red Man Laughing

Nerdist Podcast (Chris Hardwick)

When you feel a little lost in global current affairs or are having your own existential crisis – listen when you have a lot of focus and access to notepaper, ie as the passenger on a road trip:

Waking Up (Sam Harris)

Under the Skin (Russell Brand) – buckle up! Some eps he talks extremely fast!

When you need a kick in the pants to get motivated – listen after work, while cooking dinner, or just before digging into your side hustle:

The James Altucher Show


The Tim Ferris Show

When you want to dig deep in a mystery – listen while driving a car or taking a bath:

Someone Knows Something – Seasons 1 & 2

Serial – Season 1

S Town

When you want to learn something but have no time – listen when you have 15-45 minutes before you head out the door:

Freakonomics Radio

Media Indigena

Planet Money

Canadaland Commons

  1. Great list! I already subscribe to several of these. I’m always looking for more interesting and diverse content since I listen all day while I work. I highly recommend You Are Not So Smart as well, great listening regarding human behavior and psychology. Also started listening to Very Bad Wizards, blending Philosophy and Psychology.
