The 10 Best Podcasts You Should Be Listening To
Whether you're stuck in traffic or need something to get you through your gym routine, we've rounded up some of the best podcasts out there. The best part about this list, is that not one of the hosts has debilitating vocal fry. Not one! And that, my friends, is a blessing. In a world where every person thinks they can start a podcast, I've made it my mission to find you only the best of the best. Enjoy.
1. The High Low
Hosted by the chicest, cutest Brits, Pandora Sykes and Dolly Alderton, the two journalists have done their research. They discuss politics, controversies, and hot topics from all over the world. They'll tell you what new book to pick up or what article to devour. If you want something easy and fluid to listen to, this is it. With a lot of opinions out there Sykes and Alderton have done their due diligence and created a sophisticated show by doing so.
If you scare easily then I recommend listening to this one in the morning. The podcast covers stories stemming from cults like the Manson Family to the lesser known, Ant Hill Kids, the podcast is filled with creepy information. The two hosts depict the early beginnings of the cult leaders and how they so easily manipulated all types of people. A truly fascinating aspect of a rather dark time in history, Cults is a must-download.
3. Girlboss Radio
Hosted by Girlboss Sophia Amoruso, she interviews “boundary-pushing women who have made their mark”. From actresses to entrepreneurs, Sophia asks honest questions and creates conversation for the working girl. Advice and lessons learned along the way will inspire any woman at any stage of her career.
4. Bitch Sesh
Actresses (and women I hope will adopt me one day), Danielle Schneider and Casey Rose Wilson discuss all things Bravo TV. From The Housewives to Vanderpump Rules, they dive into the deep end of reality shows. With amazing guests like June Diane Raphael and Andy Cohen himself, the podcast is incredibly entertaining. Grab a glass of wine and listen, you’ll feel like you’re gossiping with your girlfriends.
5. Who? Weekly
Do you ever hear names of celebrities and ask yourself, WHO!? Well so do hosts Bobby Finger and Lindsey Weber, so much so they turned their questions into a podcast. So if you don’t know who Chiara Ferragni or Bella Thorne is, this duo has got you covered.

Don’t let the length of the episodes discourage you, they are perfect for a long commute.
8. Dirty John
If you haven't listen to the crazy story of Dirty John, RUN do not walk to iTunes. Without spoiling it to the two people who haven't listened yet, it's a love story that is not at all what it seems. The Los Angeles Times covered the entire series in a detailed expose that is worth a read, once you've finished the podcast!
9. The Moth
The Moth is a unique story-telling experience. Strangers share their stories without notes, a script, or help. Some are heart-wrenching tales about family while others are embarrassing stories of puberty. If you want to partake in an episode, the live podcast moves from city to city.
