5 Podcasts You Should Absolutely Be Listening To

I am a total music lover.

There’s no denying that I love a good infinite loop of a current earworm or the curation of a perfectly fitting playlist for the mood, zone, or vibe I’m actively in, but that doesn’t mean I don’t like to listen to people have important discussions that make me think and reflect in the same way.

I’ve recently been turned onto the world of podcasts. Don’t get it twisted on me by thinking I’ve been living under a rock and have never heard of a podcast before. I have.  I’d even go so far as to inform you that I have a growing list of podcasts I’ve subscribed to, yet never listened to.

(Apparently “podcast point of no return” is a real thing, y’all.)

Today I wanted to share with you some of my favorites lately that I’ve been rabbit-holing like a motherfunner.

My favorite way to listen is on my Google Home. Get you one here.

1. Brutally Honest with Karlie Hustle5 Podcasts You Should Absolutely Be Listening To | @shuggilippo

I used to work with Karlie back in my radio days. She’s a phenomenal woman with a mind you can’t help but fall madly in love with. I’ve always respected her ability to be brutally honest about everything from hot-button issues to everyday shower thoughts. Subscribe to this one immediately. You won’t regret her refreshing honesty. Pinky promise.

2. Rants & Randomness with Luvvie Ajayi

OOOOOOH, CHILD! I love me some Luvvie in all other forms which only stands to prove that when she launched her podcast, Rants and Randomness, I took a swan dive deep into what she was delivering here. The main episodes are packed with conversation and added commentary from some damn remarkable guests, but those bonus episodes are something you don’t even know where to begin with.

3. Getting Curious with Jonathan Van Ness

As a creature of curiosity and a self-proclaimed biggest Gay of Thrones fan in the universe, I adore with every shred of my being Getting Curious with Jonathan Van Ness. Every two weeks he spends 30 minutes with a total expert in a wildly different field, getting to know everything he possibly can when it comes to something he’s curious about. I can get behind this 1,000,000%.

4. Exactly with Kelly Corrigan

I was fortunate enough to meet and eat (my two all-time favorite things), Kelly at a fundraising dinner for Camp Kesem at the Skirball Center in LA a few years ago. She. Is. A. Storyteller, y’all. She has a harrowing journey with cancer that is beyond compelling and the level of devotion, attention, and presence she places on every moment she experiences in life magnetizes people to her in throngs.

5. Selfie with Kristen Howerton and Sarah James

Two of my favorite gals started a podcast about self-care and it’s a regular listen for me. Sarah and Kristen talk about everything from natural beauty to sexual health. They’re super entertaining and you feel like you’re sitting in the same room with them when you listen. I find myself quite regularly audibly responding or chiming into the conversation.
