My Top Podcasts - an updated list | Atlanta Blogger


Last year around this time I shared a list of my favorite podcasts at the time. I gave the name of each podcast + a little information about each one and why I love it.

A year has gone by and I discovered a few new ones, in large part thanks to recommendations from some of my friends on Instagram, so my list has changed quite a bit. A few have remained staples like The Friend Zone and Myleik Teele’s Podcast. If you want to find out more about those two in particular click the link above to read my full description of what they’re about.

A quick recap of exactly what podcasts are all about thanks to this quote from my 2017 post:

They're a good source of entertainment that can still simultaneously provide education (unlike vegging out on the couch while watching reality tv)(....don't get me wrong - I watch reality tv, too. But I'm just sayin'). If you've never heard of podcasts, think of them as talk shows that you listen to instead of watching.

Now that we’ve got the basics out of the way, let’s talk about my actual current faves!
