My Top 5 Favorite Podcasts!


Lately, I’ve been loving listening to podcasts! I listen while I’m cleaning up around the house, getting some work done and just as a general break from listening to my favorite music which can get old after constantly putting the same ones on repeat! I’ve done a bunch of podcast listening and with the help of my assistant Caroline, have come up with some favorites that I’m excited to show you all!

My Favorite Murder

If you love true crime, this is the podcast for you. Georgia Hardstark and Karen Kilgariff are two comedians who share an affinity for all things murder. The two engage in light-hearted banter while discussing their “favorite murders” that week offering insight to how they think the story will turn next or researching fan theories. My Favorite Murder is currently at No. 20 on iTunes’ Top Podcast chart and for good reason. I love listening to their favorite murders as well as fans writing in about their “hometown murders” or other creepy happenings.

Chicks in The Office

If you love pop culture and celeb gossip, Chicks in the Office by Barstool Sports is the podcast for you! Barstool’s Ria and Fran have the friendship you and your best friend have and listening to them discuss the latest in pop culture always keeps me up to date every Monday when they drop new episodes!

Almost Famous Podcast

If you’re as big of a Bachelor and Bachelorette fan as I am, this is the podcast for you! While the podcast is technically not “in season” right now, I love listening to hosts and former Bachelor/Bachelorette contestants Ashley Iaconetti and Ben Higgins discuss the previous night’s episode. They even have the recently booted off contestants come on and set the record straight or give their two cents on the season. If you don’t have friends to discuss the latest episodes with, this is the perfect way to recap the previous night’s episode!

The GaryVee Audio Experience

I personally prefer motivational podcasts like Gary Vaynerchuk’s “The GaryVee Audio Experience!” Gary is a CEO, investor, vlogger and public speaker who motivates everyone to follow their dreams. His podcast episodes are kind of a mix of all of the above: Some interviews with notable guests, speeches about marketing and business ventures and just a bunch of daily thoughts that resonate with all listeners. I saw Gary when he came to George Mason University in Fairfax for a keynote speech and he was amazing. I highly recommend listening to him if you have not already!

LAST BUT NOT LEAST MY FAVORITE…The “I’m Not Crazy, I’m Exhausted!” Podcast!

My BFF and fellow blogger/influencer Lauren Stewart (AKA @lauren.stewart_dc ) has started her own podcast! I am so excited for her and as someone who is hopefully going to be a mom soon, I totally appreciated her first episode. Lauren will have different guests on every episode discussing everything from Motherhood, Body image, social media, makeup tips, “Your child said what!?” and so much more! You can listen to here first episode HERE: https://itunes.apple.com/us/podcast/you-are-the-perfect-mom/id1446231201?i=1000425467991&mt=2 and her second just launched TODAY, which is HERE: https://itunes.apple.com/us/podcast/the-simple-service-project/id1446231201?i=1000425708452&mt=2
