Podcasting used to be something “the cool kids” were into, but over time this rising industry has open the door for new talent and a new form of entertainment. Whether you’re on the hunt for new shows to obsess over, or just simply looking to get your feet wet in the podcast world, here are some binge-worthy podcasts to listen to:
This soul searching and tough provoking podcast delivers insight and inspiration from special guests like Jordan Peele, Stephen Colbert and Salma Hayek, just to name a few. The fact that Oprah hosts this podcast is reason enough to listen to it, but beyond that, this is something to listen to when you’re in need of recharging.
If you’re looking for some career inspiration, look no further. Hillary Kerr, goes through the career journey her guests have gone through. From advice, struggles, unique anecdotes and even total career changes, this is a look into how many different roads there is to success. Bermuda’s very own Shiona Turini was recently a guest on the podcast, what better episode to start with?
Self-described as “smart, funny and black”, Amanda Seales tells it like it is every week on her podcast. It feels like having a (very opinionated) conversation with a friend, discussing the side effects of everything from trivial to very serious issues. This is the type of podcast you want to listen to while cleaning your house, or during your morning commute.
Comedian Brent Sullivan takes on a hilarious and light-hearted approach to anything and everything you can think of, from serious topics, to pop culture, to trivial issues and even cults. Much like having a conversation with a friend over drinks, and perfect for when you’re not feeling the same playlist you’ve been listening to for the past 3 years.
Storytelling seems to be on the rise in the podcast world, and “Dear Franklin Jones” is one you’ll want to listen to in one sitting, much like a book that you can’t seem to put down. It details the story of Jonathan Hirsch and his peculiar upbringing. While growing up, his family followed and worshiped a controversial spiritual leader, Franklin Jones, whom many considered a cult leader. This is a very interesting story, and a very different type of podcast to get into if you’re not reading feeling the “radio-show” style of podcasting.
