Free Fun Friday-Podcast Junkie

Hey y'all!

I have a confession.....I'm a podcast junkie. Most days instead of listening to the radio, I am listening to podcasts of various subjects. Most of the programs I subscribe to right now are related to TV shows that I like. What's so fun is when I finish an episode and my mind is filled with images and speculations about what's to come, I can continue the 'conversation' by listening to super fans who break down the episodes. Might be slightly nerdy ;)........haha

I also enjoy podcasts that teach me. How to eat better, information on current events, finances. Stuff like that. I thought I would share a few of my favorites, I hope you enjoy them!

Are you a podcast listener? Please leave me a comment and let me know your favorite!

The Awesome Podcast : This is a new one for me. It's short, usually, and has a variety of information about reaching your goals and  achieving the life you want. Warning: If you don't like to listen to perky/slightly enthusiastic people...this podcast is not for you. This is pumped up-high on life, you might say, but that's what I was looking for! 

Dissecting Dexter: I love Dexter and I love this podcast. The host Gareth is very entertaining and I love to hear what he and other people are saying about the show. (p.s. I can't wait for July when the show comes back!)


Afterbuzz TV: The Following : The Following on FOX is my newest favorite show. Kevin Bacon + James Purefoy=awesome. Afterbuzz is actually a whole online channel full of TV podcasts and, in general, I really enjoy the ones I listen to! I think it is so much fun talking about a great show plotline the day after I watched it on TV, but, well......I can't always find someone who wants to discuss Downton Abbey for an hour ;) . Afterbuzz has filled the void-taking away any reason to make new friends, lol. The hosts of the Following show are particularly entertaining. I also tune in for American Horror Story and Downton Abbey


Rob Has A Podcast: I listen to his Survivor shows and Big Brother shows religiously. This host is so funny and he has some great guests! Finally someone who is as obsessed with Big Brother as me-a kindred spirit. Definitely a must if you are one of my Survivor obsessed friends! 


This American Life : I think I've written about this one before, but I am a huge fan! Their tag line is 'each week we bring you stories on this american life of ours'. The stories run a wide variety, anything from politics, to pop culture, to phenomenons like 'sibling rivalry'. Last week was a simple collection of stories about coincidences and it was really funny. It runs about an hour, which makes it the perfect way to get through a workout.

Thanks for stopping by! Don't forget to leave a comment with your favorite podcast!
