Podcasts I’m subscribed to
I have been listening to podcasts for a long time. My brother first introduced me to them back in 2010, and I’ve been exploring the world through podcasts ever since.
Here are the podcasts I am currently subscribed to:
This is where it all started for me. RHAP was the first podcast my brother introduced me to, and it has become intertwined in my life in a fun and unexpected way.
RHAP should be your go-to for all of your reality television podcasting needs. There is a podcast for almost any competition reality show that’s on now.
Am I biased because this is where you can find both my Bachelor and Top Chef podcasts and where I’m often a guest on other shows? Sure. But there are a lot of fun reality tv podcasts available on this network featuring some really wonderful and talented people.
I LOVE THIS PODCAST. It’s one of the shows I listen to as soon as it hits my feed, even if I’m already in the middle of the podcast. It’s a funny and joyful podcast about the fringes of pop culture and celebrity. Listen to Who? Weekly if you’ve always wanted to hear about all of the celebrities you’ve never heard of before.
Hosted by British Comedians James Acaster and Ed Gamble, the Off Menu podcast explores what famous people’s ‘ultimate meal’ would be. It’s more upbeat than your death meal, or whatever. It’s very funny and very British.
Also watch Taskmaster, which both of these guys have been on.
If you’re looking for a true crime podcast with a humorous twist this is the podcast for you. But if that is what you’re looking for, you’ve probably already heard of it.
These are a few of the Ringer podcasts available that focus on pop culture and television. They often have interviews with people from their favourite shows and they dive deep into a-list celebrity culture.
This is one of the more recent subs in my feed. Danny talks about everything Bravo, I come for the Vanderpump Rules content, but listen to all of the Housewives content anyway.
On Web Crawlers Ali, Melissa, and Maria explore some of the world’s greatest unsolved mysteries and come up with theories to what happened. It is decently fine. It’s not my favourite podcast in my feed, but I still listen it to it every week.
Gaby Dalkin is a food blogger and cookbook author. While in quarantine she has started a podcast about cooking in quarantine. She answers listener questions and highlights small businesses. Each episode is about 15 minutes, and they are released three times a week. I am really enjoying listening to this podcast, and I hope Gaby continues it in some form after this is all over.
My good friends over at the Dom & Colin podcast talk about reality TV and more on a weekly basis. They have some great deep dives with some former Survivor contestants about their games. If you like strategy content, this is a great podcast for you. I’ve made a few appearances over the years, which you can check out here.
I love listening to people talk about food, even if it’s from chain restaurants. The Doughboys have been talking about their favourite and least favourite chain restaurants for years now, so there is a nice back catalogue for you to dive into.
Alice and Martha do a deep dive on the Harry Potter series, reading one chapter per week and discussing it. They are through the series now (which just means you have a lot to listen to!) but they are doing some other cool Harry Potter-related projects. I’ve guested on the show a few times, which you can check out here.
I really like these Duolingo podcasts. It’s a fun way for me to try and improve on my language skills. The stories they tell are fun too.
I love Katie Nolan! And I love her podcast! It’s not all sports, but when it is sports it’s very fun. It’s a podcast that doesn’t take itself too seriously.
My friends Toni and Julia talk about the premiere, and only the premiere of some of their favourite shows. They cover all genres of television, including reality, comedy, and dramas. So they’ve probably talked about your favourite show at some point.
This is a exploration into celebrity culture early ‘oughts. As somebody who very much loves pop culture, this is a great podcast to remind me what was going on in my younger days.
