Podcasts I Can't Live Without

Seriously, if these end I may as well kill myself.
  1. This American Life
    Because Ira Glass's voice soothes my soul (and kind of makes me horny, is that weird?)
  2. Radiolab
    Basically "This American Life: Now With 80% More Science".
  3. Comedy Bang Bang
    Makes me literally laugh until I cry, in case the people at the gym didn't think I was weird enough already.
  4. Gilmore Guys
    Gilmore Girls is seriously my most watched show of all time. I had no idea this was something I needed in my life, but now it's as essential as breathing and breakfast burritos. Kevin and Demi, I will marry either of you.
  5. The Moth
    Like listening to your cool friend who always has the best stories.
  6. The Nerdist
    I obsessive-compulsively listen to episodes even when I don't care at all about the guest, and I almost always end up loving them by the end of it.
  7. Smodcast
    Sometimes it's just way too many dick jokes, but then sometimes it makes me dry heave from laughing so hard.
  8. Best of Friends
    Okay, I might be biased because I know the hosts (here's looking at you, @erinmallorylong ), but it's like re-watching your best TV Friends with all of your best real life friends.
  9. Stuff You Should Know
    Sometimes it's hard for me to concentrate on, but it always makes me feel smarter. Plus it's great for pulling out random conversation starters that make you sound like a genius.
  10. The Kevin & Bean Show Podcast
    Can't really explain it, but for some reason I am obsessed with this LA morning radio show. No one on the show is even all that likeable anymore (RIP Lisa May, I'll love you forever) but they're the dysfunctional family I always wish I had.
  11. Invisibilia!

  12. U Talkin' U2 to Me?
    If you're a Bing Bong fan, this one is ESSENTIAL LISTENING.
