What podcast are you listening to?


I’m sure a lot of us here listen to the OMD podcast, so I’m sure there are a number of other podcast fans. What’s currently playing or next up on your podcast player?

I’m actually in the middle of the latest OMD right now, but next up is a new update episode for Bear Brook, a fascinating true-crime podcast about a group of mysterious murders and the DNA breakthroughs that are bringing us closer to a solution.


At the recommendation of my sister in law, I downloaded something called Dr Death. Apparently it’s kinda like Serial, in that it’s a cohesive story. Haven’t listened to it yet though!


I am a huge fan of these shows:

  • Bad With Money with Gaby Dunn
  • Making Ways is about the non-traditional paths that creative careers take
  • Good Company is by Grace Bonney of Design*Sponge and she does an amazing job highlighting creative business owners who are POC, queer, and people with disabilities
  • Sprocket Podcast is like a wide-ranging silly show on bikes (but not like mechanics but lifestyle), low-impact living, and has been around forever
  • The Pitch which is shark tank in audio format, and highly produced


I love podcasts! Here are some of my favorites:

  1. Money/finance/business related

I think I’m going to have to spend an entire week listening to podcasts to catch up on these new suggestions at this rate!


TANIS is so great! Have you tried Wolf 359? It’s a little more comedy and less horror, but I thought it was great sci fi (and is completed, which I always appreciate in story-podcasts).


I have not listened to Wolf 359, but I am adding the first few episodes to my playlist! Thanks for the recommendation!

(And yes, it’s definitely nice to have a completed story!)


If you can’t afford real therapy, listening to What’s the T: The RuPaul Podcast with Michelle Visage is … basically the same thing.


Love all the recommendations! I’ve added a bunch of new ones to Overcast!

I also started listening to the Ask a Manager podcast recently. And Dear Prudence. And Mom and Dad Are Fighting. I like advice columns.
