My most favourite thing besides reading books is listening to podcasts.
They keep me occupied when I am experiencing boredom, or when I walk long distances with my dog. I listen to them when I clean, work out and before I fall asleep. Basically, all the time.
That is why I am so eager to share with you my all-time favourite podcasts. Not just those I listen to when I have nothing else, but those that I actually, truly love.
Some may be a bit controversial, I know, but I believe in transparency. That’s why I am talking about all of my favourite podcasts, not just those that are politically correct. Hey, you know I am honest with ya.
So if you are ready, here are my all-time favourite podcasts:
- Blocked And Reported.
Katie and Jesse are some of the funniest people I have ever heard. They break down the latest news when it comes to politics, gender, race and everything in between. Yes, they can get controversial (if you believe in such thing as controversy) but they are also good-hearted and honest journalists who simply want the truth to win.
- The Gathering Pod.
I already wrote about how much I love Martha Beck and her books. Well, she also has a podcast! Martha loves to talk about magic and connection and what happens when we follow our truth and integrity. My own journey towards spirituality as an atheist began with listening to her podcast and I feel happier because of it.
- Asshole Court.
This is a fun podcast where three guys dissect a public person and decide if they are an asshole or not. I enjoy listening to them on my walks when I have a bad day because they are sure to make me laugh throughout the whole episode. I also love that they let their listeners decide who to talk about, so you feel like you are part of the team.
- Making Sense.
Hands down, the longest love affair I have had is with this podcast. I’ve been listening to it since 2017, back when it was still called Waking Up. You know how much I love Sam Harris and how important he was in my awakening journey, but his podcast is one of the best ones to teach me about politics as well.
Sam talks about politics (as mentioned), consciousness, religion, society and everything in between.
- Back From The Borderline.
I could cry because I love BFTB and the host Mollie so much. She has given me my life back through her content and her advice. I was a mess before I discovered Mollie and if you have Borderline Personality Disorder – or if you identify with its symptoms – she will help you too.
She beautifully mixes spirituality, science and her own opinions so that you get the best out of every episode.
(Just a note to say that Mollie seems to be anti-psychiatry and anti-medicine currently which is something I strongly disagree with.)
- Food For Thought.
As a vegan and animal advocate, it is crucial for me to keep learning ad expanding my knowledge. Colleen Patrick-Goudreau is a mentor of mine (although she has no idea who I am) and someone I admire deeply. On FFT she shares tips and advice on how to go vegan, be vegan and stay vegan forever and ever.
I truly, honestly recommend all of them. They are my most favourite podcasts and I listen to them all the time. Seriously.
They are educational and fun and they give me all the knowledge about politics I need to have in this day and age. Instead of spending my days watching the news and following political commentators on social media, I listen to a podcast or two every week.
Try it yourself and see how your life changes.
