I cannot believe that this is real life!! A few months back, I entered a podcast contest with iHeart Radio and Tongal, where I submitted a one-minute trailer for a podcast idea. I became a semi-finalist and was chosen to make a full pilot episode, and now I am one of 10 finalists whose pilots are live! Everyone is able to vote on their favorite, and the winner will be greenlit to create a full series on their idea!

My podcast focuses on the epic love stories that don’t have a happily ever after – the romantic encounters that seem promising, only to end with a serious crash and burn. It’s called, “Yeah, That Didn’t Work Out”, and it would feature a new guest each episode with an epic love connection… that didn’t work out. These fascinating stories will be completely authentic, will come from real, diverse people, but will draw you in as if someone has written the script. This show will give you the same feeling as when you’re listening to all the disastrous details of your best friend’s last horrible Tinder date. Listeners will feel like they are part of the gang and in on the gossip, and this will build a sense of community.

The pilots are live and voting is opening now (December 1st, 2021) through December 15th, 2021!!!

I’m still in disbelief that I’ve made it this far, but winning this contest would be a DREAM!

Thanks for listening, voting, and reading.

Podcast Favorites #7

podcastIf I’m being honest, I haven’t been as invested in podcasts lately as I used to be. I took a break for a smidge when I was going through my Kardashian deep dive, which took quite a while. I’m behind on almost all of the podcasts I listen to, and it will probably take me a bit to catch myself up. But I am starting to get back into my love of podcasts and favorite shows (#1#2#3#4, #5, #6). Here’s some updates and new podcasts on my list:

 

SPOTLIGHT:

downloadDying For Sex: This is the podcast that brought me back to my love of listening. I’m truly inspired and excited by Molly’s experiences. This is a beautiful story that focuses on a woman who was given a terminal cancer diagnosis. She decides to leave an unhappy marriage and start a journey of sexual escapades. The podcast tells her crazy stories as well as the process of accepting her diagnosis and how she dealt with all the emotions as well. It’s a wild ride that I can’t wait to continue as new episodes are released each week.

PATREON:

SSTWR kishtraight Talk with Ross – Kish Kish Club: We all know that I’m Ross Mathews‘ #1 fan and that I’m obsessed with this podcast. So when they recently released a patreon stream with bonus content for less than $7, my membership into the Kish Kish Club was mandatory! Each host of the podcast has their own segment, including Nikki B Life Coach, All The Feels with Cjay, and so much more. There’s also a very good chance that my voicemails make an appearance soon as well. I love having more of STWR -in my life. Also, don’t forget to check out Ross’ new book, Name Drop! REALLY PHENOMENAL WORK.

cbc

Commends By Celebs – Comments from the Couch: This podcast is one that I try to never fall behind on, because I love staying up to date on pop culture by having Emma and Julie break it all down for me. The Kardashian deep dives are of course my absolutely favorite! But I became a patreon of CBC for all the deep dives that are included in the bonus content. Even in addition to the regular episodes that I love, I also get a visual guide through patreon and links to more of the top stories and posts as well. There’s multiple tiers and though I didn’t join the top one, I’ve gotten lots of fun insight into the world and history of celebs. 

NEW PODCASTS:

nickIn Bed with Nick and Megan: I do absolutely adore Nick Offerman and Megan Mullally; they are such a fun couple and I’m always excited to tune into whatever they are up to. While they do add a fun element to this podcast by recording with their guests in their bed, it’s not a whole lot different from other podcasts where celebrities interview other celebrities. It’s pretty standard in that category of celebs interviewing their celeb friends, but again, I do love Nick and Megan so I couldn’t help but subscribe to this one.

cover-image-k0yf970d-dwts__logosDancing With The Stars Official PodcastDancing with the Stars  is one of my favorite shows of all time, so I love having this recap podcast available now! Kym Herjavec (previously Kym Johnson), former professional dancer on DWTS is the host, and she goes behind the scenes with the stars and their pros. We get more interviews, fresh off the floor reactions, and inside information. Kym keep everything light and fun and allows us to connect even more with the contestants. The episodes correspond with the latest season of DWTS, and I hope that this continues with the next season this fall.

OTHER:

odysseyThe Odyssey Storytelling Podcast: I started listening to this podcast after my own storytelling event was featured for the hindsight show. There’s all the recordings of the other shows as well as old stories from their archives. The shows for Odyssey happen the first Thursday of every month, and the recordings are uploaded by the end of the month. In between has the archived stories, which are very quick and short episodes. There’s for sure a variety of great things to explore here.

 

Honestly, there are so many podcasts out in the world these days! I might be at full capacity at this point.

Thanks for reading.

Podcast Favorites #6

podcast  The pods don’t stop! Here are even more my favorite podcast suggestions: (#1#2#3#4, #5)

 

420 FRIENDLY:

MJ today daily

Marijuana Today Daily – For any headline that is cannabis related across the U.S., here is your resource. This daily dose of top stories and breaking news along with other relevant information will certainly keep you in the know. Host Shea Gunther celebrates the achievements made in the cannabis industry and leads you to longer online articles as well if you are interested in some of his briefed topics. Under 10 minutes long and released each morning, it’s a good quick listen.

 

Stoner Horoscopes

Stoner Horoscopes – This podcast only comes out monthly, and has a separate page to follow for each separately horoscope (which is nice, so then you don’t have to delete the horoscope episodes that aren’t yours). It’s always a quick and lighthearted listen, wishing you good fortunate and recommending different strains of cannibals to bring you positivity.  It’s definitely a little hippy dippy, but I enjoy it.

 

CELEB PODCASTS:

Chelsea HandlerLife Will Be The Death Of Me with Chelsea Handler – If you are a Chelsea Handler fan, then you know that her new book just came out. Chelsea combines her book tour, lessons learned from her therapist, and her life stories to pull together this podcast. It’s very relevant, liberal, and important information and ideas that should spark a lot of good discussion. I’m a big Chelsea fan, and am spreading her new words to live by: “The world is only getting browner and gayer, and if you don’t hop on board, you’re gonna miss the fucking bus.”

 

Justin Long

Life Is Short with Justin Long – Just like many other celebrity podcasts, Justin Long interviews his colleagues and friends in a free-spirited environment. This podcast often includes his brother as a co-host, and has a very very very catchy theme song. The show isn’t entirely original, and reminds me of other celeb podcasts. However there are a lot of big named celebrities and if you like Justin then it’s still worth listening to.

 

IMPORTANT ISSUES:

Out and Up

Out and Up – I’m going to be honest here. This podcast has a great message and some good content, but it’s a little dry and hard to get through. I’ve often picked it up and put it back down, as not every single guest is a natural given story teller. Even still, these stories are important and should be heard, and as a member of the LGBTQ community, I have intentions to continue to support.

 

 

#tellblackstories

#TellBlackStories – I’m going to continue to support this podcast as well, but here is some more honesty. The words and stories in this podcast are truly awesome, but the audio quality needs a ton of work. Often the different individuals talking are at wildly different volumes, and you either can’t hear one or are deafened when the other starts talking. If you are able to listen, the interviews are so great and highlight different struggles and obstacles that powerful people have overcome. There’s so much left to uncover as well in future episodes, but they need to get the audio worked out.

 

New Pod On The Block

New Pod On The Block – Don’t try to tell me that boy bands are not an important issue to be talked about, because they are! Hosts Josh and Mike are huge boy band fans, and they bring us through all our 90’s favorite things. From liquid dreams, to the best bops and bangers, you will be reliving some of your best memories. 98 Degrees, Backstreet Boys, N*SYNC, Boyz II Men, and so much more – they are all waiting for you.

 

The podcast love is real, so please comment or send me your favorite podcasts!

Thanks for reading.

 

 

 

 

Podcast Favorites #5

podcast  Okay – here is yet ANOTHER round of my favorite podcast suggestions! (#1, #2, #3, & #4)

NEW LISTENS:

this day in history

This Day In History – Brought to you by How Stuff Works and Stuff You Missed In History Class, this podcast explores an important event that happened on this day in history. Every day, you can find out a significant event that happened years ago. From the Lindbergh kidnapping, to an epic Beatles rooftop concert, to the day Pluto was discovered, and so many events in between. It’s a quick 5 to 10 minute podcast that comes out each morning, and its a cute way to start the day by looking back one day at a time.

ellen on the go

Ellen On The Go – I used to absolutely love watching Ellen when I was in high school and could make it home in time, but I haven’t been able to routinely catch the show pretty much since then. Now, I can keep up with all the laughs through the podcast Ellen On The Go, which is hosted by five of her creative writers and directors, who give their colorful commentary on the segments. I’m glad I didn’t have to miss the hilarity of Kristen Bell and Dax Shepard yelling at each other over Cheetos, or when Portia surprised Ellen with her birthday present. I wish there was a way to conveniently watch the show each day, (let’s get on that, Hulu) but until then, the podcast really helps me get my fix of Ellen.

experts

armchair expert

Armchair Expert – Speaking of Dax Shepard – Alright, I finally did it. I caved and started listening to Dax Shepard’s podcast and honestly, I am not sorry that I did! I’m now a huuuuge fan of both Dax and also Monica Padman! Monica does a “fact check” at the end of each episode, which is often my favorite part just because I think Monica is great. Dax interviews a celebrity each week, where he dives in deep to cover lots of stories about life and the industry. Of course his wife Kristen Bell makes appearances on the show, along with other co-stars and famous friends. I think Dax is a really awesome human and I think very highly of him as a person. Aside from Armchair Expert, Dax also has another podcast, Expert on Experts, where he goes deep with professionals in their area of expertise to decide if they are truly, indeed, experts afterall.

what the tuckWhat the Tuck? – The ONLY RuPaul’s Drag Race recap podcast. That’s it, there’s only this one. No others. If you think there are you’re wrong, and you can’t prove it. I live for Drag Race and so do the hosts of this podcast, who are ever-revolving, but Nicole Byers is the reason that I originally tuned in. I find her hilarious and love her opinions on the queens. The only other recap podcast I listen to for Drag Race is Alaska and Willam’s show, but I do really appreciate the opinions and perspectives here as well. Even though Nicole is not there every week, and the other hosts seem to come and go as well, I still would recommend.

can we kick itCan We Kick It? – This podcast debuts Cjay as the host, who you may know if you are a listener of Straight Talk with Ross. Cjay teams up with the lovely Miss Paress as his co-host, whose voice is one of the most soothing things I have ever heard. They cover pop culture stories, relevant topics in black culture, and bring to light topics that should be talked about. I also get a lot of great music suggestions from the pair as well, as they regularly recommend popular artists and new talent to watch. The podcast is new, so it’s easy to catch up and be along for the ride, because I’m sure that there’s a lot more to come here.

As always, there’s room for more suggestions in my podcast life! Comment or send me your favorite podcasts to try!
