Oh, the things you’ll learn from listening to other people…


1.     The Read

A personal favourite of mine, The Read is hosted by Kid Fury and Crissle, two hilarious humans who talk about pop culture news with no mercy. There’s a listener question section followed by a “read” section at the end, where they each drag people (honestly, no one is safe) to filth. Politically outspoken and extremely profane, these two will have you laughing, thinking, and sometimes sobbing every week.

2.     Getting Curious with Jonathan Van Ness

Unless you’ve been living under a rock, you know how absolutely fabulous Queer Eye’s Jonathan Van Ness is. What’s even more incredible is that even when the show isn’t on-season, you can get your dose of JVN every week!  The content varies from week to week, but you will always learn something new.

3.     Stuff You Should Know

A long-time favourite, SYSK covers almost every topic you could ever be interested in, and you can learn things that are outside of your degree in less than an hour. Even though the title suggests you “should know” these things, most of the topics cover things you might have only heard of and not fully understood, so why not use this free show to educate yourself?

4.     The Friend Zone

With the tagline “mental health, mental wealth, and mental hygiene, because who in the hell wants a musty brain?”, hosts Dustin Ross, Francheska, and Assante discuss topics related to wellbeing by drawing from their own experiences. Backed with research and personal knowledge, the trio talk about current issues and pop culture topics to help you feel better about life.

5.     Sleepy

Ahhh, sleep. The never-ending dilemma of student life. Since phones, laptops, and tablets have taken over our lives, people (especially students) are finding it increasingly difficult to get to sleep. Episodes of Sleepy feature classic stories being read aloud by host Otis Gray, and while it may seem a bit creepy at first, you’ll find it truly does help you fall asleep!

Whatever it is you’re looking for, you’re bound to find it in the sea of podcasts available. You can listen to them on Spotify, Apple Music, or the Podcasts App, and you can also download them before a trip where you won’t have wifi.

Enrich your life with the power of podcasts!
