A couple of years ago, I was introduced to the wonderful world of podcasts. I liked them for several reasons: roadtrips and work commutes felt so much shorter, my husband and I enjoyed connecting over them and I learned so much random information.
Now that I’m a stay-at-home-mom, I’ve traded the work commute listening sessions for nursing, walks and play times, and they are just as beneficial now.
Here are some of my favorite podcasts:
The Moth – Stories shared from people all over the world told live at Moth Events. Everything from Christmas traditions to most embarrassing moments to crazy life incidents. Who doesn’t love a good story?
Coffee + Crumbs – I’m new to this whole mom life and this podcast, and have only listened to a handful of their episodes, but boy are they relatable! So, if you’re a mom (especially with small kids), and need encouragement or just affirmation, I would highly recommend! You are not alone.
This American Life – A super popular public radio show, every episode has its own theme made up mainly of journalistic stories, with lots of humor thrown in throughout. As they say on their webpage: “There’s lots more to the show, but it’s sort of hard to describe.”
Crimetown – (warning: lots of language) a product of Gimlet media, Crimetown investigates the culture of crime in different American cities. The first season is set in Providence, Rhode Island and focuses on the story of corrupt mayor Buddy Cianci and organized crime and corruption in his city.
Skullcandy earbuds – I have a hard time getting earbuds to stay in my ears, and these Skullcandy ones are my favorite. They come with two pairs of silicone tips (one larger and one smaller) so you can find your perfect secure fit. Another bonus is with their in-ear design, they are partially noise-canceling.
