Podcasts are a great way to learn new information, have a laugh, or just pass time.
Listening to podcasts can be informative, exciting, funny, and even thrilling. Since podcasts are so popular, here is a list of a few podcasts you may not have heard about and should definitely give a listen to:
1. The Last Podcast On The Left
If you couldn’t tell from the “Last House on the Left” reference, this podcast delves into anything and everything horror. Hosted by comedians Marcus Parks, Ben Kissel, and Henry Zebrowski, this podcast deals with a multitude of subjects. Topics like serial killers, cults, aliens, bigfoot, and more are all covered on this weekly podcast. This podcast offers a rare contrast between the serious/scary topics being discussed, and the hilarious personalities of the hosts. If you’re a fan of horror, you’ve got to check this one out.
2. The CrabFeast with Ryan Sickler and Jay Larson
This has to be one of the funniest podcasts out there. Hosted by comics Ryan Sickler and Jay Larson, each week a different comedian comes to the show and joins the two hosts in telling hilarious stories about their lives. The show has had amazing guests such as Bill Burr, Tom Segura, Todd Glass, Jen Kirkman, and Anna Faris. The chemistry between the two hosts and the guest is great each week, making this podcast very easy to listen to.
3. You Made It Weird with Pete Holmes
If there’s any one podcast that can better you as a person, it has to be this one. Hosted by comedian Pete Homes, this is another hilarious, but also at times moving, podcast. Running on the themes of comedy, sex, and religion, Pete Holmes brings in a different guest each week and discusses those three subjects. Holmes is a very open individual, which generally makes it easy for the guest to open up as well, because Holmes definitely does not shy away from taboo or awkward subjects. The diversity of guests is amazing. Previous guests include comedians and actors such as Zach Galifianakis, Jon Hamm, Andy Samberg, Jimmy Kimmel, Bill Nye (the science guy), priest Rob Bell, and even football player Aaron Rodgers! This podcast is interesting because Pete Holmes somehow gets everyone, even the most famous of guests, to show a side that the public has not seen before.
4. Monday Morning Podcast
Hosted by comedian Bill Burr, this podcast manages to be captivating and hilarious, even with just one host. Burr, a veteran of comedy, uses this podcast as a platform to rant and rave about certain subjects. From sports to relationship advice to current news, Burr covers anything he feels like talking about. Mainly talking about what’s going on in his life, Burr manages to post a podcast every Monday morning and Thursday afternoon, each usually going over an hour. Occasionally bringing on a guest, Burr offers a different take on some news stories, and also shares events that have been happening in his life. Definitely give this one a listen, as the rantings of Bill Burr are constantly funny.
