Posted on January 31, 2022
Everyone knows that podcasts are becoming more and more popular every day. But, with thousands of different options, how can you know which you should listen to? Here are my top five podcasts that I’ve been loving recently and are worth giving a listen to.
1. “Anything Goes” - Emma Chamberlain

This one goes without saying. With Emma having over ten million Youtube subscribers, people want to hear more from her. Her comforting personality and young adult relatableness has given her an insanely successful platform at only 20 years old. There are 96 episodes with a wide variety of topics ranging from friendship/relationship advice to Q&A’s and personal lessons/stories. This podcast has it all. This podcast is definitely my go-to for my daily walks or long drives when I need a break from music.
2. “Crime Junkie” - Audiochuck
For all of my true crime lovers out there, this one’s for you. Each Monday, a new episode discusses a chilling crime in a descriptive, suspenseful way. This stunning podcast will have you on the edge of your seat the whole time. Fair warning, this podcast can be scary and discusses real-life cases. If you are a fan of mysteries and crime stories, this podcast will have you hooked the whole time.
3. “The Self Love Fix” - Beatrice Kamau

This podcast is one of the most inspirational and encouraging podcasts I have listened to. Beatrice Kamau, an embodiment coach, talks all about self love, self worth, finding the start of your toxic habits, healing your inner child and more in the 140 already released episodes. She gives you a higher sense of who you are and what you are worth with advice, questions and teaching. If you are looking for an inspirational listen and a way to improve your self esteem while living unapologetically, give this podcast a go.
4. “The Steve Dangle Podcast” - Steve Dangle, Jesse Blake, Adam Wylde
This podcast is perfect for the hockey lover — more specifically a Toronto Maple Leaf fan. Steve Dangle, Jesse Blake, and Adam Wylde, all hardcore Leaf fans, dive into all of the latest news around the NHL and give their take on it. There are currently over 400 episodes, all about hockey and new conversation surrounding the league. So, if you’re a hockey fan, this podcast is 100% worth getting into.
5. “Smartless” - Jason Bateman, Will Arnett, Sean Hayes

Finally, the comedy podcast everyone loves. Hosted by three well-known actors: Jason Bateman, Sean Hayes, and Will Arnett. Something unique about this podcast is that their main focus is on interviewing a new guest each episode, which is a mystery to ⅔ of the hosts until revealed at the beginning. Some of the more well-known guests have consisted of Billie Eilish and Finneas, J.J Abrams, Robert Downey Jr, Lebron James, and more. All of these special guests share their own personal stories and experiences each week creating a new comical atmosphere each episode. If you want a deeper, more personal dive into the personality of some of your favourite A-List celebrities while also getting a good laugh, Smartless will be the podcast for you.
