While binge-watching has become the way to go to get your dose of entertainment, it isn’t the best option when you’re commuting or just wish to lie down with your eyes closed. That’s when you can turn to podcasts, TBH! And once you get hooked on to them, there’s no going back. Just like there are many genres of video content, similarly, there are different kinds of podcasts! If you’re interested in trying podcasts but are unsure of which ones to listen to and where to find them, fret not. We got you! Scroll down to check out 5 top podcasts to listen to RN.

1. Terrible, Thanks For Asking

Replying ‘fine’ or ‘good’ when someone asks ‘how are you doing?’ is something we all do, even if we may not particularly be feeling okay. And in this podcast, author and host Nora McInerny talks about this by asking ordinary, real people about how they’ve really been feeling and creating an open conversation about it. It sometimes gets heavy, hella funny, but always real.

2. Julie: The Unwinding Miracle

This will leave you reaching for your tissue box constantly. It is simply heartbreaking. The podcast takes you through Julie Yip-Williams‘ painful journey as she slowly dies of cancer. The author talks about her extraordinary life as she prepares herself for her death.

3. In The Dark

Peabody Award-winning podcast, In the Dark goes deep into investigating the criminal justice system and law enforcement. The second season investigates the case of Curtis Flowers—the man who was tried six times for the same murder.

4. Safe For Work

If you’re an adult with a job, you most likely have work problems that bother or have bothered you. The hosts Rico Gagliano and Liz Dolan know how it’s like and have some great advice up their sleeves in the podcast, with a pinch of humour. They’ll tell you how to handle the temptation to rage-quit during a rough phase at work and lots more!

5. Stuff You Should Know

After listening to this podcast, you’ll be the most interesting conversation starter at every party! From topics like ‘what happened to the Neanderthals?’, ‘how area 51 works?’, and ‘how lie detectors work’, you can get hooked on to the episodes pretty quickly.
