One thing that I discovered thanks to the pandemic was Podcasts. I didn’t realize how much I was missing out on the world of Podcasts until I decided to explore the vast amount of genres and categories! Podcasts can cover various topics, ranging from history and business to entertainment and art.

Whatever your interests or niche, you can find podcasts that cater to them. I find that Podcasts offer a great alternative to other media types because it’s convenient and great for when you want to take a break from scrolling social media or watching TV. If you’re listening to an audio-only podcast, you can listen to a podcast episode wherever, whenever, while on the go, exercising, or even while doing chores. The variety of podcasts means that there is something for everyone, and here are just a few that I’ve grown to like.

As everyone has probably gone through at some point, I went through my true crime phase in 2020. Crime Junkie is a great introductory podcast to get oriented into the world of investigations and unsolved crimes.

The internet is full of true crime-related content, so it's essential to seek out content that deals with the subject matter in a respectful manner. I have always found the Crime Junkie episodes to be well-researched, and the narration is clear, and to the point, so I highly recommend checking it out!

Some other recommendations for true crime-related content are Kendall Rae and MrBallen.

2. Aware and Aggravated

It's not a stretch to assume that we all have times when we are riddled with anxiousness and self-doubt. Being human means realizing that these moments of weakness are totally normal and support is available to develop your self-confidence. I enjoy listening to Aware and Aggravated because Leo Skepi (the host) provides actionable tips, and his personality makes the podcast entertaining to listen…
