what do a group of whales listen to on a long journey? a podcast

Pun intended, honestly.

Today, I’m writing about one of my favorite things that I’m always giving recs for and asking for suggestions as well…podcasts! Honestly, I never thought I’d be a podcast person, I really didn’t know what they were until like, a year ago. I knew the word and associated it with that weird app that came on any new Apple product I bought.

When I graduated last spring and started my internship with a 30 minute commute each way, and then moving to D.C. where I started walking and taking public transit more, I found myself getting tired of my music. My heavy beat drops and rap music were great during my morning workouts, but I didn’t need to be that hyped on my commutes, or even on regular walks to the grocery store or anything like that. So many influencers I follow raved about various podcasts, so I decided to give them a whirl.

And then I was hooked.

Now, whenever I have a silent moment I’m playing a podcast, and I follow quite a few different ones. My all-time favorite is The Skinny Confidential Him & Her, I always learn so much from it. The first episode I listened to was with Jordan Belfort, and then the next was about infrared light. I’ve listened to episodes ranging from veganism to organic beef production, to skincare to reality TV stars. In conversations with friends, podcast recommendations constantly come up, so I figured why not share some of my favorites with the World Wide Web.
