Oh hi! Last night I was fortunate enough to attend a live taping of Call Your Girlfriend, a podcast hosted by long-distance best friends Aminatou Sow and Ann Friedman. It was delightful and had me thinking about my current favorite podcasts. If you need something to listen to in the car, on the train, on a plane… let me recommend the following.
Call Your Girlfriend — It’s basically listening in on two very smart and witty besties catching up on pop culture, politics, and feminism. They also have guests.
More Perfect — A “mini series” produced by the great show Radiolab all about the Supreme Court. They cover past and current cases that interest them and teach you loads about the workings of the mysterious court in the process.
2 Dope Queens — You’re probably already listening to this podcast! But if you aren’t, it’s a live comedy show in NYC hosted by Jessica Williams (of The Daily Show) and comedian Phoebe Robinson. They feature a diverse range of comics and their banter is top-notch.
Song Exploder — Each Song Exploder episode features one song by one band. The musician(s) break down the songwriting process for that particular track, giving you a behind-the-scenes of some of your favorite tunes.
There are MANY, many more podcasts worth listening to, but there are a few favorite of mine right now. Hope you like!
