I used to be a huge fan of radio shows because they’d keep me entertained on long drives. But lately, I’ve been listening to podcasts a lot more. It’s easy to catch up with them at any time, on my own schedule. Best of all, you can find a podcast about almost anything, from true crime to pop music. If you’ve never listened to one before, though, you probably have no idea where to start. That’s why I’m sharing my picks for the top 5 podcasts I think everyone should listen to.
5 Top Podcasts You Should Check Out:
1. Switched On Pop
We’ve written our fair share of pop music reviews here on Grapevine, but Switched On Pop takes it to another level. This podcast looks at individual chart-topping songs and takes them apart piece by piece to understand why they’re so good. Both the hosts have a professional background in music and point out musical elements that you might not have noticed before.
Risk! is known as the podcast where people tell “true stories they’d never dare to share,” and it doesn’t disappoint. Stories range from raunchy and lighthearted to emotional and heartbreaking. But whether it makes you laugh or cry, listening to Risk! is an experience everyone should try.
3. 51 First Dates
Anyone who’s been in the dating scene can relate to 51 First Dates. This podcast follows two best friends, Kimmy Foskett and Liza Renzulli, and their dating adventures. Liza picks the guys, Kimmy goes out with them, and then they meet to recap exactly what happened. More often than not, it turns out to be a wild time.
4. How Did This Get Made?
Hosted by some of the funniest actors on TV (Paul Scheer, June Diane Raphael, and Jason Mantzoukas), How Did This Get Made? answers what we all wonder after seeing a bad movie: how did this get made? This hilarious team covers the development of popular yet terrible films, such as The Room. It’s easily one of the best comedy podcasts out there.
5. My Favorite Murder
Of all the top podcasts about true crime, this has to be the most popular one out there. Each episode covers a different murder case, as well as some fan-submitted crime stories. What keeps me coming back to My Favorite Murder are the hosts and how passionate they are about true crime.
You can find most of these podcasts on Spotify, so you can listen to them anywhere. Or if you’re really old school, you can download them and tune in on your iPod.
