my 9 favorite podcasts

Do you listen to podcasts? I really enjoy listening to them when I’m at the gym, on a walk, driving alone, folding laundry or just laying in bed after the kids are asleep. I love finding new shows so today I wanted to share my nine favorites with you!

Serial     (season 1) —   this is the first podcast I ever listened to and I was immediately hooked. It’s a true murder mystery from 1999. Was he guilty or not guilty?

Armchair Expert     — quite possibly my favorite podcast of all time. My favorite guests have been Kristen Bell, Ellen DeGeneres, Brene Brown, Ashton Kutcher and Gordon Keith. The episodes are long but worth it. Do not listen with children present.

Chris Loves Julia   — a great podcast about DIY, home design and life in general. This show is no longer recorded, but the archives are incredible!
