Recently on my instagram account, I shared about a new app I have found called Podcoin! Podcoin is a podcast listening app that allows you to earn points for every 10 minutes of podcasts that you listen to. You can then redeem your points for gift cards to places like Target, Amazon, Starbucks, Dunkin Donuts, etc. You can also choose to donate your points to charities for things like animal rescues, global warning, books for kids, etc. It’s a really great app, you should definitely check it out.
A few people messaged me to ask for podcast recommendations, so I decided to make a master list here of all the ones I regularly listen to, or have enjoyed in the past. I hope this is helpful for you, and that you find something that you enjoy.
If you have never listened to a podcast before, no fear! Here are some detailed instructions on how to search for and download podcasts.
I’ve tried to put them into categories as best I could, but a handful of them could definitely go in a few different ones. Also, I linked all of them below. So please click on the links even if you don’t need to because it took a very long time.
Crime Writers On (This podcast reviews true crime media and this is where I get a lot of recommendations for what to listen to!)
Criminal (Stand alone episodes)
Accused (Season One and Two)
In the Dark (Season One and Two)
Serial (Seasons 1 & 3, Season 2 is trash).
30 for 30 Podcasts (By ESPN)
Embedded (Season one is my favorite & not particularly political)
The West Wing Weekly (Literally just recaps of West Wing episodes)
The Daily (Released every morning by The New York Times)
Up First (Daily News podcast by NPR)
Deck the Hallmark (They recap Hallmark Christmas movies! All year round!)
I hope you find something you enjoy from my list! What are your favorites? Anything I’ve missed? Let me know in the comments!
