5 BINGE-WORTHY PODCAST SERIES
Anyone who talks to me for more than 5 minutes knows I love podcasts. I can’t help it. They’re amazing. And I’m willing to beg that these crazy addictive podcast series will make a fan out of you too (if you’re not already).
You can binge on one of these awesome podcast series* while you conquer your laundry, prep a bunch of meals, workout at the gym, or wait in the school pickup line. Time will whiz by and you’ll be thoroughly entertained. All while being super productive. (See why I love podcasts?)
Okay, stop right now and subscribe to this binge-worthy podcast. Trust me. And get a friend to do the same because once you binge the entire season, you’re gonna wanna unpack it all with someone.
Or stare at a wall for a while. Your pick.
I don’t want to give much away on this one, but if you’re into true crime stuff (like Forensic Files), you will LOVE this (and we should probably be friends).
All true and extremely well-produced, this podcast will suck you in and leave you stunned.
(Bonus: Because I listen to podcasts while exercising, I basically doubled my workouts getting wrapped up in this series.)
Go subscribe and then come back.
You’re back? Good, let’s move on!
Wolverine: The Long Night
You don’t even have to be a huge X-Men/MARVEL/comic books fan to love this podcast and its compelling storyline. When I told my husband at the start of a recent road trip that we’d be listening to a Wolverine podcast he smirked and skeptically responded with “There’s a Marvel podcast now?”
Yes. And it’s awesome.
Within the first 5 minutes he was completely sucked in.
Wolverine like a radio play, complete with fantastic sound effects and excellent actors playing the parts (Richard Armitage of North & South and The Hobbit perfectly voices Wolverine).
Another work of fiction with amazing actors, this binge-worthy podcast series is now a TV show streaming on Amazon starring Julia Roberts. Yep. They turned this podcast series into a star-studded TV show.
It’s that good.
Homecoming is a 2-season series that’ll have you scrambling to untangle a mystery. Jumping from past to present, you get sucked into the story surrounding a therapist and a young veteran suffering from PTSD.
Lots of great actors in this one. Stars Cathrine Keener, Oscar Issac, David Schwimmer, Amy Sedaris, and David Cross.
S-Town is another captivating work of investigative journalism. The narrative begins with John, a colorful character who hates his Alabama hometown, contacting a reporter about a supposed murder.
But just when you think you know where the story is going, it takes an unexpected twist that sends you down a rabbit hole. Soooo interesting.
Would any list of binge-worthy podcast series be complete without Serial? Nope. Now on their 3rd season, this podcast is investigative journalism at its finest.
I first got sucked in with season 1 as host/journalist Sarah Koenig explores the murder of a high school girl (supposedly) at the hands of her boyfriend.
If you like Making a Murderer, then this is right up your alley.
WHICH WILL YOU LISTEN TO?
I couldn’t help but binge on each one of these podcast series and I’m betting you’ll enjoy them too. So pick a series, turn on your bluetooth speaker, and start listening next time you dive into cleaning or laundry.
I’d love to know what you think of them!
*Note: These podcasts series may not be suitable for young ears so it’s best to listen while the kids are otherwise occupied.
