The Beauty of Podcasts


Podcasts are a very underrated thing. There is so much to learn and explore in the world of podcasts. You can learn anything your heart desires, whether that be true crime, scary stories, mythology, folklore, art, news, anything! If you are anything like me and cannot listen to audio books while driving or doing chores, then podcasts are for you. Here are a few podcasts that I listen to often and I have learned so much from:

“Stuff You Should Know” with Josh and Chuck is a hilarious, educational podcast that talks about random subjects such as cave diving, unsolved mysteries, history’s biggest mistakes and triumphs, corduroy and so much more. Anyone can find an episode to dive into and learn so much more about a subject you thought you knew everything about.

“Lore” with Aaron Mahnke is a podcast that dives deep into folk lore, mysterious monsters, spooky history and much more. If your a fan of the unknown this is the podcast for you.

“Let’s Talk About Myths, Baby” is a goofy, short podcast by the Greek Geek, Liv. This podcast talks about the insane stories of Greek Mythology and how things came to be within those stories. This is a great podcast for anyone who was ever obsessed with Percy Jackson growing up and wishes to dive back into the fascinating stories of the great and powerful gods.

“Today in True Crime” is one of my favorite shows to listen to for many reasons. First i have always loved true crime and learning about it is one of my favorite things. Secondly, this podcast discusses things that happened on today’s date years ago in true crime history. Whether that be gangsters turf wars, terrorist attacks, lives of murders or just crazy stories in the true crime genre. This is a podcast for anyone who enjoys shows like Criminal Minds, Mind Hunter, Law And Order and more!

“The Lonely Palette” narrated by Tamar Avishai takes you into the colorful and beautiful world of art. This shows talks about famous pieces of art that many people think they know about, but really don’t know at all. For example, did you know that the famous painting Portrait of the Postman Joseph Roulin was actually a portrait of Vincent Van Gogh’s friend who was there with him though thick and thin. This is a great podcast for anyone who is passionate about art and the deeper meaning of the most famous paintings in the world.
