When I am not reading, I love listening to podcasts. They are ideal when doing household tasks or making a walk. Just like books, there are a huge amount of podcasts to choose from. If you don’t know where to start, try one of my favourites!
This post was inspired by Top Ten Tuesday. A weekly meme managed by That Artsy Reader Girl. The topic of this week is ‘Audio Freebie’.
This podcast reminds me of an audiobook. The main character is Dr. Bright. She is a therapist for the ‘strange and unusual’. All her patients have some kind of supernatural ability. In most episodes we listen to a therapy session with one them. The characters are amazing! It’s so interesting to hear how they struggle with their ability. Later in the podcast, we also learn more about Dr. Bright herself. The cast is diverse with, among others, an asexual character, a bisexual character and one who is discovering his sexual orientation along the way.
I highly recommend this podcast! Start at the beginning if you’re interested. The original story is finished, so you don’t have to wait for new episodes.
Each time I listen to this podcast, I learn something new. In every episode a lesser known person or event is discussed. The podcast is still running. My favourite episodes include Nefertiti and the Heretic Pharaoh and Roses Through Time.
3. This is Love
Every episode of this podcast is a real life love story. It’s about love in its most broad definition: romantic love, love for family and even love between animals. The stories are beautiful and alway cheer me up. I haven’t listened to all of them, but my favourite episode so far is Something Large and Wild.
This podcast is great for book worms! Every episode Emma Newman talks with a writer or an illustrator in her secret tea lair. She asks original questions and the conversations are really funny. I loved to listen to the interview with Seanan McGuire.
In this podcast Gretchen Rubin and Elizabeth Craft give tips to become happier. They cover lots of topics, so there is something interesting for everyone. I like how honest the two sisters are in their podcast. They talk about their own life and what advice did or didn’t work for them. One of my favourites is episode 151: Keep a Running List of Your Favourite Things.
