6 Podcasts That Will Make Your Day More Interesting

So, there’s currently around 750,000 podcasts circulating out there in the audio world. 750,000!! That’s bonkers to me. As someone who has a podcast, the amount of work that goes into planning, recording and editing an episode is no joke. As a listener, it can be overwhelming when trying to find a new podcast to dive into. I’m a self-proclaimed true crime podcast addict, but recently I’ve been branching out into new genres. If you’re looking for a new podcast that will make your day a bit more interesting, look no further.

Becoming Wise

Short on time, but still want to dive into a good podcast? Becoming Wise covers philosophical in-depth conversations about human existence in five-minute episodes. Yep, get deep, feel inspired, all in the time it takes to make a cup of tea. Host Krista Tippett was honored by President Barack Obama with the National Humanities Medal for her success in “thoughtfully delving into the experience of human existence,” so she definitely knows what she’s talking about.

#TellBlackStories

#TellBlackStories elevates the voices, stories and work of changemakers, content creators, activists and leaders driving a movement for accurate portrayals of Black people.

This “tiny radio show about design” makes you appreciate the big and small decisions that shape the world we live in, from purple hotels and traffic markings to camouflage and parentheses around area codes.

The Ezra Klein Show

Looking for a podcast that tackles news and politics outside the box? Journalist Ezra Klein explores the big topics in modern culture by talking to experts, artists and luminaries.
