Life has been super crazy and busy since class started back up, but things have been good! How is the end of summer going for y'all? Today I thought I would share some of my favorite, go-to, podcasts. I am the kind of gal that has to have something going on in the background while I work on projects or homework. When I really trying to concentrait, I turn to music. However, when I am doing more manual work, like sewing or crocheting for class, I love to listen to podcasts. I love either learning something or listening to a more humorous podcast to keep things light. I prefer podcasts over music on my commute to school. It makes me feel kind of like someone is in the car with me,:)
The Bugle - Audio Newspaper for a Visual World
- This is the first podcast I ever got hooked to. If you watch The Daily Show with Jon Stewart, you will recognize one part of the show, Comedian John Oliver. The other half is U.K based comedian Andy Zaltzman. This podcast is perfect if you like satire and political humor. John and Andy are writing partners from back in the day, and they have a great report and good timing. If you are fan of puns, like me, Andy in particular has lots to offer.
Judge John Hodgman
- I have blogged about this funny podcast before, but it definitely has a place among my favorite podcasts. It seems to be on a bit of a holiday, but there are dozens of episodes to catch up on.
Hip Tranquil Chic/Tranquility Du Jour
-This is a lifestyle podcast from author and yoga studio owner, Kimberly Wilson. If you are interested in topics ranging from aromatherapy to time management to repurposing old clothes to interviews with authors in the world of spirituality/yoga/lifestyle, then this is a podcast to inspire you. I have been introduced to some really great authors and blogs through this podcast. This probably leans a bit to the feminine side, but I think there are definitely episodes than men can appreciate as well. If you are interested in learning about how yoga can impact your entire lifestyle, then you should definitely check out www.kimberlywilson.com and this podcast!
Stuff You Should Know
- This is one addictive podcast! I started listening a few months back, and I can't stop! Chuck and Josh write for the website How Stuff Works and also host this podcast. Basically, each episode is on a topic from the vault of the websites articles. (i.e How Migraines Work, or How Spam Works) Sometimes the subjects don't seem all that interesting at first, but the chemistry between the two hosts and their down to earth, humorous approach will keep you glued to your iPod. There are hundreds of episodes, and it is fun to group them by theme for a day trip. I listen to these guys almost everyday. New episodes come out every Tuesday and Thursday.
