Now that the days are chilly and the sun sets early, it’s the perfect time to cozy up by the fire and listen to a good podcast. Whether you’re a podcast fanatic or haven’t caught on yet, we’ve compiled a list of our favorite podcasts to entertain you all winter!
One of my favorite podcasts right now, “Childhood with Chanel and Tiffany” allows you to tune into the casual conversations between Chanel Miller, author and illustrator, and her sister Tiffany. They tell stories from their childhood, reminiscing on everything from weird childhood snacks to their favorite childhood pets. The podcast can easily get off-topic and veer into minutes of the sisters giggling, but it’s their pure joy and honesty that makes the show so brilliant.
Samara Bay, host of “Permission to Speak,” has one of my dream jobs. She’s a public speaking advisor, voice coach to the stars, and communication pro. In this podcast, she explores how we talk and what our speech says about us through in-depth interviews with communication experts. Psychologists, actors, politicians, and come onto “Permission to Speak” to explain their journeys to realizing their true voices and sharing them with the world.
“Remote learning is here to stay – can we make it better?” and “Can Substack CEO Chris Best build a new model for journalism?” were both recent episodes on Nilay Patel’s “Decoder,” a podcast that dives into big ideas in business, technology, education, and more. Each episode brings major inspiration and motivation – you might even get the next big idea for your own start-up!
Bill Gates and Rashida Jones are teaming up in this new podcast to explore some deep questions like “What will the world look like after COVID-19?” and “Is it too late to stop climate change?” Whether you’ve been following Gates for years or you’re a huge fan of Rashida in Parks and Rec, you’re sure to find something fascinating in this one.
This podcast is a little random, but still super compelling for those winter nights when you’re looking for an interesting listen. In each episode of “Everything is Alive,” inanimate objects are brought to life when the interviewee tells a story from the object’s perspective. Get ready for hearing about life as a paper towel dispenser or a Sharpie!
