Podcasts are becoming a perfect source for learning more about anything and everything that interests you! From fashion updates to global news, self-help and comedy, there is a podcast for everything. Long journeys and household tasks can pass quickly when you listen to an engaging discussion or funny duo. Podcasts produce short, digestible media which offer explanations of complex subjects or can be used as a form of meditative self-care when listening to fashion news or comedic shows.
The Daily by The New York Times provides explorative news episodes, five days a week. Each episode tends to focus on a specific news story, discussed in-depth between the host, Michael Barbaro, and a guest versed in the topic. The episodes cover ongoing court investigations, sports world updates, and stories of individuals. Each episode is a quick 20 minutes which makes The Daily ideal to incorporate into your morning routine to catch up on news articles.
Emma Chamberlain shares all in Anything Goes. Appropriately named, Emma’s discussions span various topics of life experience, but always with intimacy and a personal touch provided by her hosting. Her podcast is growing in popularity and is adored for how she speaks candidly about mental health and navigating life as a 20-year-old. Anything Goes provides the listener with food-for-thought and helps us reflect on ourselves. It is ideal for listening to during mindful walks or mid-afternoon breaks.
For daily fashion news, The Business of Fashion Podcast provides an in-depth analysis of the market. They share engaging interviews with creative directors, provide explanations on business dealings, and advise young creatives wanting to break into the fashion world. When you don’t have the time to sit still and read a business article, this podcast is a great alternative to listen to as you journey to work or to meet up with friends.
Another option for self-care can simply be listening to a comedy podcast to boost your mood. Smartless, hosted by Jason Bateman, Sean Hayes, and Will Arnett is guaranteed to make you feel better. In each episode, one of the hosts introduces his guest who is a mystery to the other two hosts until that moment; this format provides genuine and authentic conversations between comedic people. If you are a fan of sitcoms like Arrested Development, Will & Grace, or The Office, then this podcast will certainly bring you joy.
