TOP PODCAST RECOMMENDATIONS: What I’m Currently Listening To
Happy FRI-YAY!!! I have been binging SO MANY podcasts lately because I spend half my days nursing and I like to listen to podcasts to pass the time! Podcasts have been something I’ve really been getting into over the last few months because I can listen to them while I’m doing other things and I don’t have to watch a screen to know what is going on (like a tv show). Whether it’s nursing, cleaning, doing my makeup, etc. podcasts are my fave thing to listen to lately. Let’s jump into this.
TOP PODCAST RECOMMENDATIONS
*these are not in any particular order. I just wrote them down as they came into my brain!*
ONE: HUSTLE LIKE A MOTHER PODCAST
Alright…so I may be biased… 😉 But HLAM is my podcast and I’m obsessed with it. It’s everything I had been looking for when it comes to being a working mom. I interview TONS of working moms from different backgrounds from other bloggers to magazine editors to motivational speakers to body positivity coaches to authors and more. All of these women have something in common: they are all moms who are hustling to make their dreams come true. It’s inspirational, funny, authentic and honest. It’s available on apple podcasts, spotify, stitcher and google play! Episodes are between 35min-1hr long. *no explicit language used*
TWO: CRIME JUNKIE
This is my all time favorite podcast. I’m SUPER into true crime, and Ash & Brit are my very favorite true crime podcasters. They tell the story in a way that captures your attention start to finish, they add all the details without getting overly wordy and going off on long tangents, and they have so much respect for the victims, their families and the stories they are telling. If you are into true crime: you will LOVE crime junkie. The episodes are between 30-45 minutes long.

THREE: THE MILE HIGHER PODCAST
This is a conspiracy theory / true crime / documentary type podcast and I really like this one. It’s actually run by one of my favorite youtubers Kendall Rae and her husband. I watch her true crime and missing persons YouTube videos and so I knew I would like the podcast. She and her husband have great banter on the podcast and they tell the stories really well. I love their conspiracy theory episodes because they get so funny and excited about it (I definitely put on my tinfoil hat for those episodes LOL). The episodes are between 50 minutes – 1.5 hrs long. *explicit language used*
This is another podcast run by one of my favorite youtubers – Samantha Ravndahl. I LOVE her and she was the first beauty YouTuber I ever watched and fell in love with. Like her podcast title, Sam is SUPER relatable and hilarious. She runs the podcast with her bestie, and they, too, have great banter with each other and with their guests. This podcast focuses on a bunch of lifestyle content like self care, entrepreneurship, eating disorders, depression/anxiety, what is the meaning of life, etc. It’s a hodgepodge of awesome topics and you can pick and choose what speaks to you! The episodes are between 35-50 minutes long. *minor language used*
FIVE: SWORD AND SCALE
This podcast is not for the faint of heart but if you are a real true crime fanatic, you will probably like it a lot. This podcast includes real clips of 911 calls and court cases and can be really tough to listen to. I like how real it is – each episode listens more like a true documentary style vs a story telling. I am careful with which episodes I listen to (I really can’t listen to the ones about kids anymore since having Jack) because they are really REAL. I like that they include all of the facts and that they don’t try to gloss over the cases. The episodes are between 50 minutes – 1.5 hrs long. *explicit language used*
SIX: FAT MASCARA
This is a makeup podcast! I love this one because they tackle a bunch of different makeup and skincare topics and interview experts in their beauty fields. It’s super conversational and fun to listen to and you can pick and choose the topics that speak to you. I love the skin care episodes because I’m going through so much crazy acne (during my pregnancy and post-pregnancy) and they have a lot of awesome tips to help that. They talk about new product releases, as well, so I am always in the know! The episodes are between 35-55 min long. *no explicit language used*
SEVEN: BEING BOSS
If you are a small business owner or blogger, this is a great podcast to listen to! They cover all kinds of things the small business owner should know and it’s really informative. I also love hearing about other people’s businesses and they really do a great job at interviewing! The podcasts aren’t overly long, and they really dive deep into the content and don’t waste a lot of time before getting into the nitty gritty of the podcast. The episodes are between 1 hr and 1.5 hrs. *explicit language used*
EIGHT: I’M NOT CRAZY, I’M EXHAUSTED
I was actually interviewed on this podcast!! I love Lauren and she is one of my favorite bloggers. She also struggled with infertility but on a much larger scale and I followed her for a long time watching her treatments and making note in case I ever had to go through the same types of things. It was really helpful to see her get her miracle babies. She talks all things life: mom stuff, business stuff, general life stuff. There is something for everyone in this podcast and it’s just really fun to listen to her and her guests chat about life! The episodes are anywhere between 15 min to 1.5 hrs. *no explicit language used*
