4. Moms and Murder Podcast
If you’re interested in true crime I would highly suggest listening to this podcast. There are two hosts in this podcast Mellisa and Mandy. Just because murder is in the podcast name doesn’t mean that every episode they discuss has murder in it although most of them do. This a true-crime podcast that every episode is a new case. They have murder, scam artists, robberies, etc. They also give insight on some cases that you never even heard of before as they don’t only focus on highly publicized true crime cases.
5. The New Yorker The Writers Voice
The New Yorker The writer’s voice is great for those who have an English or journalism degree or have a love for reading. The writers voice podcast has an author reading a different story from one of their fictional stories during each one of the episodes. This podcast has readings from Emma Cline, Joy Williams, etc. So if you’re a fanatic of books or are looking for new authors to hear about the new yorkers the writer’s voice is a good podcast for you.
6. Home Cooking
The home cooking podcast is hosted by Samin Norsat (Writer of Salt, Acid, Fat, and Heat) and Hrishikesh Hirway (Podcast host of the WestWing Weekly and Song Exploder). This podcast is perfect for those who are trying to cook and limited ingredients or are trying to figure out what to make during a pandemic. Samin Norsats gives uplifting optimistic outlooks in this podcast even when trying something that seems way too odd to work. So if you’re looking for some new weird ideas for your kitchen this podcast may be the one for you.
7. The Argument
This podcast is perfect for the debater inside of you. The host is David Leonhardt, Michelle Goldberg, and Ross Douthat who are opinion columnists for the new york times. Each episode in this podcast has them tackling different controversial topics and take a stance and discuss it. As infurating as this may seem at first it shows great insight on how both sides of the argument think and why and allows you to maybe get a deeper understanding of each of our stances. If you’re in a debate team or simply want to learn more about the opposing side or maybe just here a columnist agrees with your stance than the argument is a great podcast to listen to.
This is a science-based documentary-style podcast hosted by Allison Behringer who discusses medical mysteries and as you continue to listen to you this podcast shows more how doctors tend to disregard women and others and their problems. This podcast starts with Allison on the journey on how to find out why sex started hurting her to an episode where a company sold a product targeted to black women that had asbestos in it. This podcast takes you to a wild ride and if you’re a woman interested in science and mystery stories like those then this should be on your listen to next.
9. The Dream
The Dream podcast host Jane Marie is on a hunt to find out more about MLM’s and why they mainly focus on women who need flexible income. This podcast is infuriating as you learn more about how MLM’s scam people that are looking for help or are trying to help their families. If you’re interested in learning about MLM’s and how they scam others and devastate lives then this podcast is great for you.
10. Felonious Florida
If you live in Florida and are interested in true crime than this podcast is amazing. It’s one of my favorite podcasts.

There are many people behind the scenes besides the host EmmaKate as well as The Sun-Sentinel also works on this podcast to give the most honest and interesting true crime detailed stories.
