The past few months I’ve been on a huge Podcast kick. I’m not sure what took me so long to discover this wonderful world of digital media, but better late than never. They’re a great alternative to music and perfect for flights, car rides, runs and background noise at the office. Here are 6 podcasts worth checking out! P.S. Please note that all my podcasts are about work, movies or pop culture. I’m sorry, I’ll try to branch out!
Anna Faris is Unqualified is a hilarious podcast to listen to if you’re looking for a fun and relaxing way to decompress at the end of the day. Anna, her producer Sim and a celebrity guest (Olivia Munn, Shaq, Allison Janney, Chelsea Handler etc.) spend the first half of the podcast chatting and the second half answering callers’ relationship questions. I’ve always enjoyed Anna’s sense of humor and how real she is. She does a great job of just being herself and it’s hilarious, surprising and insightful to listen to her and other celebs try to solve real people problems. Added bonus: Chris Pratt pops up on occasion! Definitely check out the episode with Aubrey Plaza.
I’m a HUGE movie nerd (majored in film in college, watch them all the time etc.) so this podcast is right up my alley. How Did This Get Made sheds a new light on bad movies that makes you almost believe they were good. Comedians Paul Scheer, June Diane Raphael and Jason Mantzoukas will give you a good laugh as they dissect bad films. Don’t miss the live episodes on Con-Air and Face Off; they’re hilarious.
Any of you who used to watch MTV back in the day will recognize Chris Hardwick as the host or Jenny McCarthy’s sidekick on the dating show, Singled Out. Now he’s a digital genius, comedian, social media guru, nerd extraordinaire with a pretty sweet site and podcast. Nerdist is a weekly interview show with three magnificent nerd hosts. They regularly speak with comedians and celebrities on what it truly means to be a nerd and as a self proclaimed nerd I both appreciate and enjoy this.
The Accidental Creative is a host of different successful people in the work force that share their insight to help you stay prolific in your own job.
TED Talks needs no explanation. You pretty much have to be living under a rock to be unfamiliar with these powerful talks. From technology to cultural issues, TED talks are a brilliant and engaging way to learn about a wide range of topics.
Pop Culture Happy Hour is a weekly show that covers everything from movies, books, music, television, and more. Entertain yourself with these riveting conversations about pop culture.
