Podcast Favorites #3

podcast  Here is another round of my current favorite podcast suggestions! (#1, #2)

COMEDY:

Off The RailsOff The Rails with Sarah Colonna and Josh Wolf – This podcast is going back a couple of years, but is super worth the binge. After “Josh and Ross / he said he said” ended, Josh kept his old school radio style podcast going with a new co-host. Sarah is hilarious and their conversations are a perfect combination of relevant issues and absolutely ruthless and disgusting ideas. I’m a big fan of both Sarah and Josh from a comedy standpoint, so I recommend going a google search for their material as well.

Fairly Normal

Fairly Normal with Josh Wolf – Eventually, Josh goes solo on the podcast and Fairly Normal was born. Josh actually has an incredible story of how his family was created, and the episodes with his children are some of the most interesting. (TBH I should probably read Josh’s book to get the full story, cause its genuinely fascinating.) Some of the episodes include and guest and others are just solo rambles from Josh on the road, but all are entertaining. All the episodes of Off the Rails and Fairly normal can both be found under this logo on the Podcast app.

3 Girls 1 Keith3 Girls 1 Keith – This is a new podcast, and I only listen to the shortened version on iTunes. Apparently there is an extended version on Spotify, but I like the shortened show well enough. Amy Shumer, Bridget Everett, and Rachel Bloom partner with their friend Keith to talk about taboo topics and humiliate Keith as much as possible. If you are a fan of Amy Shumer’s, this is a good listen. Covering everything from love to pets to anal, it’s a quick and funny show in typical Amy Shumer comedy.

 

DRAG RACE:

Race ChaserRace Chaser – Sorry not sorry that I am a HUGE fan of RuPaul’s Drag Race and this podcast is EVERYTHING! Alaska and Willam are diving into each episode one by one as their love letter to the series. I am having a blast watching an episode from season one every week and listening to Alaska and Willam dissect it with their wit. There are some special guest appearances from the queens featured on the episodes and lots of inside information. If you are a fan of Drag Race, this podcast really is a MUST. I’m also obsessed with Alaska and will listen to anything with her voice in it.

Whimsically VolatileWhimsically Volatile – If you know Drag Race, you know Katya. Previous to listening to this podcast, I did not know Craig, but Katya and Craig together create an absolutely ridiculous and over the top duo. This podcast is full of inappropriateness that you just can’t find anywhere else. Katya (Brian) really goes deep into some truly gruesome stories that you can’t stop listening too. There is no lack of entertainment here, that’s for sure.

 

OTHER:

Getting CuriousGetting Curious with Jonathan Van Ness – Jonathan is my favorite of the Fab 5 on Queer Eye, and I can never get enough of him. Needless to say, when I found out he had a podcast, I immediately started binging. This podcast is super informative – Jonathan goes keep into topics that make him curious with experts from that field. This covers everything from politics to social media to a diva cup. I’ve already learned so much from listening to this podcast and there is so much information left to discover. Also, Jonathan is the best.

Self HelplessSelf Helpless – This was such an easy binge listen for a crazy person like me! If you have ever had anxiety, read a self help book, or practice the art of Feng Shui, you have to listen to these girls. Comedians Delanie Fischer, Kelsey Cook, and Taylor Tomlinson come together to talk about their experiences with self help, anxiety, and so much more. There is always a comedic relief, but also a lot of great insight. They also did an episode where they covered The Five Love Languages, and a book I am currently reading called “You Are A Badass”. Highly recommend!

NancyNancy – I SAVED THE BEST FOR LAST. Nancy is one of my all time favorite listens, and I cannot wait for them to start the new season and bring me more episodes. Nancy is an LGBTQ podcast that goes though so many issues in the community. To put it simply, this podcast is so real. The hosts Kathy and Tobin go through their experiences with coming out, cover relevant news stories, and shed light on statistics and ideas within the LGBTQ community. This was an eye-opening podcast with so many more ideas to explore. Whether you are a part of the LGBTQ community or not, this is worth the listen. I promise.

More to come! I am always looking for new podcast recommendations and suggestions, so please comment if you have any favorites to share.

Happy listening! Thanks for reading.
