So, March is over. March was #trypod month. As in, recommend a podcast to someone else and let them try it. Here are my favorites:
1. Daily Hope. I listen to this while I get ready for work. It has 110% changed how my mornings go. I have a lot of trouble leaving the house in a positive mood in the morning. I just always feel...something and I don't know why (well, I know why but that's forthcoming and doesn't need to be discussed right now). Listening to this is very beneficial to my mood.
2. Appointment Television. I love listening to people talk about T.V.
Sometimes I wonder what they have against Showtime because, aside from the odd mention of Homeland, they never talk about those shows. HBO too...they'll mention The Leftovers or GoT once in awhile but nothing else. I wonder if there's a whole genre of t.v. they're missing?
I feel like this is all over the place and for good reason. It's unlike what I expected (I don't know what I expected). I'm not a huge fan of This American Life; it's too broad. I liked the first season of Serial. The second season of Serial needs to rot away slowly (much like Berghdahl should in a prison cell). When S-Town was compared to Serial, I didn't want to try it. But I did. It's fascinating. Go for it. If I tell you what it's about, it'll ruin it. The less you know, the better.
This is exactly the kind of thing Scott loves, so I insisted we listen together as we were driving the other day...so I will have listened to it twice by the time he's done.
I wouldn't read anything about it or ask anyone about it (click here if you've already listened)...I'd just listen.
4. Body Kindness. This is fascinating. I always thought I wanted to get involved in the RD field (aside from the fact that I can barely do basic math), so this is a way to educate myself about what's going on out there in layman's terms. There's good tidbits too, about why we should avoid diets.
5. Happier. I don't know why I like this podcast so much. It's so basic...just talking about daily life and how it can be made easier, therefore made happier. I've listened since it first started two years ago. I can't even legitimately say I'm Gretchen Rubin's biggest fan...she doesn't seem like a ton of fun (but hey, neither am I)...but I love her message.
I listen to others but these are the first five that came to mind.
What's your favorite podcast???
