Podcasts I Live By

Updated: Aug 17, 2020

My interest in podcasts started a few years ago when my one of my favourite Youtubers, Meghan Rienks, started her own advice podcast. She wasn't as active on youtube anymore, and I just liked the way she spoke and what she spoke about, so I started listening to it to pass the time.

My interest grew into a love once I was out of college, and commuting to work. My first job was a temp PR job a few times a week in NYC, and my commute was about 2 hours there and 2 hours back, so I had a lot of time to kill, therefore a lot of podcasts were consumed. After that about 8 months ago, I started working at a PR agency and now I spend eight hours sitting in office chair (quarantine mode: my bed), so I need even more content to fill my time in a silent office (bed). I began exploring what was out there, and I finally found a solid bunch that I really like and I am always anticipating their next episode. Sprinkle in a few others that I like to listen here and there while at work as a way to fill the silence at the office (home), while also learning about something new in the pop culture or political world, and I now have the perfect (but still growing) list of podcast subscriptions that I 10/10 recommend.

Below I've listed out a list of podcasts I currently subscribe to, and will continue to add to as my subscriptions grow. Keep in mind I am a 22 year old girl who loves fashion and beauty, and am trying to figure life out, so a lot of the podcasts listed below reflect those little facts. Below that I'm going to add a list of podcasts that people highly recommended to me just in case you have a different taste in me, which is likely.

If you have any recommendations for me leave them in the comments below I'm always looking to add to the list!
