Today I’m sharing some podcasts that I’m currently listening to. They tend to change over time, so here’s what is on my ipod right now.
I’m very grateful that I work at a job that I not only love (flowers and plants all day, every day – yes please), but I’m also able to listen to my iPod while I’m there since I don’t work with customers at all. I’m always adding new music and podcasts to it each week to make sure that I have something new to listen to. It makes the time go by faster, plus I get to learn something new. Below I’ll be sharing some of my current favorites as well as what they’re about and why I like them.
Tanis, The Black Tapes, and Rabbits // All three of these podcasts are made from the same people. They’re all paranormal mysteries, a genre that I never thought I’d like, but it ends up that I really do. The Black Tapes is about a researcher who debunks the paranormal. However, he has a small number of cases that he wasn’t been able to – called the black tapes. There have been two seasons so far, the third will be the final one, which I’m a little bit sad (ok, a lot) sad about. The Black Tapes is probably my favorite of the three.
Rabbits is their newest podcast, and is about a woman who is investigating the disappearance of her friend. She ends up finding out that her friend was playing a mysterious game, called Rabbits, at the time of her disappearance. This podcast is just about at the end of first season, so it’s a great time to start listening – you can binge listen but still not have seasons and seasons of content to get through.
How I Built This // If you like podcasts from NPR, you’ll like How I Built This too. Every week a different entrepreneur of a well known company is interviewed about how they built their company. Some of the companies featured so far include Tom’s, TRX, Rolling Stone, Carol’s Daughter, Five Guys, Whole Foods, Lonely Planet, AOL, and lots more. I love hearing about how people persevered and came out on top to build something that they were really passionate about.
The Vanished Podcast // The vanished podcast looks at missing persons cases. The lady who runs it tries to highlight cases that haven’t gotten a lot of media attention or are older. Most of the time family members of the missing person are interviewed and she also sometimes gets law enforcement for interviews. It’s shocking to me that so many people can go missing when there’s so many cameras and computer trails. She also runs a Facebook group for the podcast as well.
Hayward Sanitarium // Similar to Tanis, The Black Tapes, and Rabbits, Hayward Sanitarium has a similar feel to it. It follows a doctor who has just moved to a small town in New England to work at a sanitarium that has a long history. It’s part history and paranormal. There’s only 10 episodes and I don’t believe that there’s plans to make anymore.
Lore // This podcast is created by an author, Aaron Mahnke, who has a great way of weaving stories with creepiness. Every week a new “true life scary story” is examined. Aaron has the perfect voice for a slightly scary podcast. Lore has gotten really popular the last year or so. In fact, it’s so popular, it’s now being turned into a TV show by Amazon, which I’m super excited about.
Blissful Bites // Last but not least is Blissful Bites. If you’ve read Get Fit Fiona for awhile you’ll know that I’ve mentioned Nicole Culver a few times before. She helps people built their food related businesses online, but a lot of what she shares I also use for healthy living blogging. She’s so generous with her knowledge and the Facebook group is a great community to ask questions in. I like that her podcasts are generally on the shorter side (30 minutes or less), so they’re perfect when I have a bit of down time.
What podcasts are you currently listening to? I’d love for some recommendations on something new to listen to.
