While I totally understand the need to talk about said Cheeto, sometimes I just want to escape into something else during my commute. Here are a few great podcasts to get your mind off society's impending doom (at least for 45 minutes).
Do you wish that Mindy Kaling had written the Aziz Ansari book, Modern Romance? Then you'd love Andrea Silenzi's Why Oh Why? Andrea speaks with friends, experts, and guys in bars about where love and sex meets tech. Her approach is fiction meets interview meets memoir meets #BossLady awesomeness.
This award-winning documentary-style podcast focuses on music in ways different than HTJL fave, Switched On Pop. Instead of focusing soley on songs, it looks at the music industry with topics like Lou Pearlman + boy bands, the Beatnick folk movement, and the history of New Orleans jazz. If you're a music and history nerd (points finger at self), this one's for you.
I'm not all history and food -- I'm a well-rounded human who loves herself some Bravo. This is basically the audio version of The People's Couch meets NYMag's snarky Real Housewives recaps. I'm obsessed.
