Plug in to Podcasts

Do you ever have those days where every song on the radio sounds the same? Or your best Spotify playlists are just not working for you? Do you want to actually know what’s going on in the world but don’t want to take hours to sift through a million articles? Or do you want to learn more about a specific topic without taking a class? If you said yes to any of these questions, or came up with three more on your own, you need to download some podcasts.

Podcasts are a killer way to create goodness in your life by growing your knowledge base and expanding your perspective on a variety of topics.

You can stay up to date with the latest news, hear a review on a movie or show you are on the fence about, learn new and exciting things, or even get caught up in an thrilling story.

My Favorite Podcasts:

News & Politics: Up First 

Pop Culture: Pop Culture Happy Hour 

Psychology: Hidden Brain

Technology/Design: TED Radio Hour

Black Life: The Nod 

Mental Health: Let’s Talk About It

For Beginners:

How? Easy. Download the Podcast app on the device you are currently holding and begin searching/adding certain shows to your library.

But there are so many? I know and it’s awesome!! It’s definitely overwhelming, but so worth it. Take it slow. Choose one show and start with one episode.

Not really digging it…that’s okay! It took me a couple days to really get into podcasts. If you don’t like my suggestions, check out the links below for more suggestions.
