Podcasts to check out!

25 Mar















If you are looking for some new podcasts to listen to, I compiled an amazing list based on what people recommended on my Facebook page! Their suggestions were so awesome that I wanted to put it together for everyone! A lot of these are not meant for kids – and by a lot, I mean most of them – the topics range from murder, more murder, creepy stuff, fashion, sports and lots of other interesting topics. And don’t forget the true crime – aka, more murder. There really are a lot of podcasts about that, but somehow it really works in that format.

So grab a coffee or tea and read through the list!

Podcasts can be a great distraction – you can listen to them while working out, walking, baking  – even in the tub 🙂
