My Top 10 Favorite Podcasts


my top 10 favorite podcastsDo you listen to podcasts? I mean, if 2020 taught us anything is that moms love memes and murder podcasts, am I right?!

There is literally a podcast out there for almost every single niche you could ever imagine. Everything from business to murder, to reality TV breakdowns. And now podcasts are available on more than just iTunes. You can find them on Spotify, Google, Stitcher, Tunein, and more.

I’ve been listening to podcasts for about 5 years now. Here are my top 10 favorite podcasts.

Top 10 Favorite Podcasts

Armchair Expert – This podcast is hosted by Dax Shepard and Monica Padman. They interview celebrities and experts in many different fields. The podcast is generally at least 90 minutes, but some of them run over two hours. I love the banter from Dax and Monica.  It’s truly my favorite podcast and I am officially an Armcherry!

SerialSerial tells a story over the course of a season. The creators of Serial are also the creators of This American Life – which means I knew I was going to love it. Definitely more serious than some of the other podcasts, so keep that in mind if you subscribe!

GoalDigger – As an entrepreneur, I really appreciate this podcast. You can scroll through the different episodes and find those that apply to what you’re interested in. But I think every episode offers a nugget of wisdom! 

We Are Supported By – This podcast is somewhat the baby of Armchair Expert. We Are Supported By is hosted by Kristen Bell and Monica Padman. They interview women who are making an impact in today’s crazy world. Listen to the Oprah interview I promise you won’t be disappointed!

My Favorite Murder – If you like your murder with a little humor, this podcast is for you! The hosts tell each other their favorite murder stories as well as stories from friends and family. You just have to listen!

They See Me Mommin’ – Moms everywhere can relate to this podcast. They See Me Mommin’ is two moms who straight up tell their lives, the good, the bad, and the hilarious.  It’s short and perfect for that drive time. It’s also kid-friendly, with no NSFW language or topics!

We Can Do Hard Things – I love Glennon Doyle. There, I said it. So when her podcast came out, I had to listen! We Can Do Hard Things is exactly what you think it would be. Glennon keeps it so real and is truly encouraging through this very strange time of existence. I highly recommend it!

Office Ladies – I am a HUGE Office fan. Like, I have seen every single episode multiple times. If you don’t like The Office, this podcast probably isn’t for you. Office Ladies is a podcast hosted by Angela Kinsey and Jenna Fischer who played Angela Martin and Pam Beesly respectively on The Office. They break down every episode, have special Office guests, and truly make me laugh. 

Crime Junkie – This podcast is straight up all about true crime! If you need more true crime, you’ve come to the right place. Tons of great insight, facts you may not know, and so much more from some of the biggest crime stories. You’ll get sucked in. 

This American LifeThis American Life has been around for decades. It’s a slice-of-life type of podcast, but the storytelling is truly phenomenal. It’ll capture your attention right away. And if you aren’t really into murder, this is definitely a better option for you!

I think I could probably list another 10-20 podcasts because I just love listening to them!  I always have one cued up.  

So tell me, what are your favorite podcasts?  Did I miss one?
