Not Books, Personal

Podcasts Pt. 2

Last year, I shared some of my favorite podcasts. This year, I’d like to share a few more! Let me know if you listen to any of these, and share any of your own favorites that I’ve yet to include. 🙂

BRUNCH

BRUNCH with DJ Bean and Pete Blackburn

Neurotic pop culture from the original bad boys of podcasting.

Love You Like a Sister: The Podcast

Love You Like a Sister with Sam and Mindy

Do you miss the 90s and 2000s? Do you miss listening to Savage Garden on your DiscMan on the school bus while sipping the sugary goodness of Fruitopia? Do you remember expressing the agony of a heartbreak through a very passive aggressive burned CD shoved in your ex’s locker? Did you murder a million Tamagotchis? Just Sam? Cool cool cool. 

We miss it. So. Much. We want it back. Until we can convince soda companies to produce nothing but Surge, we’re fighting the good fight on our weekly podcast, Love You Like a Sister. 

Wonderful! with Griffin McElroy and Rachel McElroy

Wonderful! is a podcast for joyful and enthusiastic people that like hearing about the passions, big and small, of other people. Each week Rachel and Griffin McElroy will talk about things they love and invite listeners to write in with their treasured items of enthusiasm. Topics may include movies, television, sports, books, drinks, eats, animals, methods of transportation, cooking implements, types of clothing, places in the world, imaginary places, fictional characters, and fonts, to name a few.

Multiamory

Multiamory with Emily, Dedeker, and Jase

We offer new ideas and advice for multiple forms of love: everything from conscious monogamy to ethical polyamory and radical relationship anarchy. We combine the knowledge from our years of personal experience with the best information available and present it in a way that’s entertaining, thought-provoking, and easy to apply to your relationships.

Section 10 Podcast

Section 10 with Jared Carrabis, Steve Perrault, and Coley Mick

Their About section is empty (typical), so I’ll just say that this is an absurdly funny Red Sox podcast presented by Barstool Sports. I’ve met all the hosts at least once (Jared several times) and they’re all awesome dudes IRL. I highly recommend this podcast for all Sox fans!

Discussions, Not Books

Podcasts

Okay, so podcasts aren’t books, but I’d argue that they’re closely related! They’re kind of like audiobooks! Some tell stories, some teach you things, and some are just plain fun. For today’s post, I wanted to show y’all some of my favorite podcasts and learn what some of your favorite podcasts are!

Reading Glasses with Brea Grant and Mallory O’Meara
[discussion, education]

Do you love books? Want to learn how to make the most of your reading life? Join hosts Brea Grant and Mallory O’Meara every week as they discuss tips and tricks for reading better on Reading Glasses, a podcast designed to help you get more out of your literary experiences.

As professional creatives and mega-readers, Mallory and Brea are experts on integrating a love of reading into a busy lifestyle. Listeners will get help for bookish problems, like how to vanquish that To-Be-Read pile and organize those bookshelves. Brea and Mallory also offer advice on reader dilemmas. How do you climb out of a reading slump? How do you support authors while still getting books on the cheap? Where do you hide the bodies of the people who won’t stop talking while you’re trying to read? No matter what you read or how you read it, Reading Glasses will help you do it better.

My Brother, My Brother, and Me with Justin McElroy, Travis McElroy, and Griffin McElroy
[comedy, discussion]

My Brother, My Brother and Me is an advicecast for the modern era featuring three real-life brothers: Justin, Travis and Griffin McElroy. For roughly five-sixths of an hour each week, with new episodes dropping every Monday, the brothers McElroy will answer any query sent our way, each fielding questions falling into our respective areas of expertise. We operate like a streamlined, advice-generating machine. It’s both terrifying and humbling to behold.

The Adventure Zone with Griffin McElroy, Travis McElroy, Justin McElroy, and Clint McElroy
[Dungeons & Dragons, fiction, comedy]

Justin, Travis and Griffin McElroy from My Brother, My Brother and Me have recruited their dad Clint for a campaign of high adventure. Join the McElroys as they find their fortune and slay an unconscionable number of … you know, kobolds or whatever in … The Adventure Zone.

The Heart with Kaitlin Prest
[discussion, storytelling]

The Heart is a show about love, life, bodies and feelings. With rich sound design, intimate subject matter and a critical lens, the stories on this show ask the important question of our era: What is love?

Stuff You Should Know with Josh Clark and Chuck Bryant
[education]

How do landfills work? How do mosquitos work? Join Josh and Chuck as they explore the Stuff You Should Know about everything from genes to the Galapagos in this podcast from HowStuffWorks.com.

It might have been overdoing it two put two McElroy podcasts, but you should just be grateful that I didn’t put three now that Wonderful! has started. Anyway, these are just 5 of the podcasts I listen to, but I’d say they’re my favorites! I actually went to see My Brother, My Brother, and Me live on Sunday night and it was an incredible experience! What are some of your favorite podcasts?

Thanks for reading! You can also find me on Twitter and Goodreads.
