Fast forward to about a month ago, I decide to try again. And this time, it’s actually stuck! I don’t remember to listen every week so I frequently have to catch up but I am making a point to listen and I’ve found podcasts that really work for me.
weekly column on the New York Times that features reader-summited essays about love. The podcast brings on a celebrity to read said essays for the first portion and then for the rest of it, the writer comes on to discuss his or her story. They’re just so compelling and cover such a large range of perspectives.
‘Broken, Not Bound’ | Episode 12 feat. America Ferrera
‘Between the Bars’ | Episode 15 feat. Joshua Jackson (I love that man’s voice)
‘Friends Without Benefits’ | Episode 19
‘To Fall in Love with Anyone, Do This’ | Episode 30 (I loved this essay already so I was super excited to see them do a podcast on it!)
Recommended episodes (so far! I haven't listen to that many yet):
Summer Bookstravagaza | Episode 58
Make America Smell Great Again | Episode 57
Social Butterfly in Love With A Hermit | Jul 21
Timothy Goodman, one of the designers from the project 40 Days of Dating. I was in love with that blog and since then have continued to follow him on various social media so I really enjoyed this episode!
Timothy Goodman | originally Oct 2015 (they re-posted it last month)
Estelle had been telling me about this one for forever and when I finally tried listening, I just couldn’t get into it. I’m just not super into their hosting style. That said, I listened to the episode with Jana Kramer recently because I adore her and I ended up really enjoying it! I think this is one of those podcasts where I’d only listen if I’m a fan of the celebrity guest.
Jana Kramer | Episode 38
Estelle put on my radar! It’s a podcast where the host talks to a different YA or MG author each week. Clearly this is right up my alley! The list of authors she’s spoken to is seriously impressive and I’d eventually love to go through her backlog. In the meantime, I just listened to the one with Leila Howland and I can’t wait to listen to more. (FYI, the episodes are a tad long.)
Leila Howland | Episode 83
