Podcasts Worth Listening To

One of my traveling rituals is catching up on my favorite podcasts. I save them up in-between trips and enjoy every moment of binge listening from 30,000 feet, sparkling water in hand. Sarah Koenig’s first series of Serial…I mean (if you haven’t listened to it yet, do that NOW!). Other than Serial, there are two other podcasts I listen to regularly:

1. Here’s The Thing. An intimate and honest conversations hosted by Alec Baldwin.  Alec talks with artists, policy makers and performers – to hear their stories, what inspires their creations, what decisions changed their careers, and what relationships influenced their work.

Even though Baldwin is pretty smug and at times unlikable, most of his interviews are a 10/10. My favorite episodes are with Rosie O’Donnell, Jimmy Fallon, Sarah Jessica Parker, Ian Schrager and Jerry Seinfeld.

2. That’s So Retrograde. Elizabeth Kott and Stephanie Simbari love green juice, a good palm reading, and a guided meditation via YouTube. Also whiskey and the (not-so-occasional) cute boy. On That’s So Retrograde they interview gurus of all types while trying to get to the bottom of how to find their best-selves.

I learn something new from each episode and have put many of their guests wellness recommendations to practice. Another fun fact, I’m on the Heart 2 Heart episode albeit I loved and listened long before being asked to be a guest.

You can listen to both of these through the Podcast app on your phone or click the links above to stream them online. Hope you enjoy!

  1. Thanks for sharing. Definitely going to check out the Alec Baldwin show. I started listening to podcast not long ago but I’m addicted. I really enjoy “A Few Things with Claire and Erica” and “Ask a Clean Person” from heritage radio network. “A Few Things..” is a lifestyle podcast covers topics from skincare to business. “Ask a Clean Person” is a cleaning podcast which is oddly informative and entertaining.”Not Too Deep” by Grace Helbig is really good too if you are into Youtube celebrity and lighthearted interviews.

  2. I love Radio Lab. “Unraveling Bolero” was the first one I listened to and I’ve been hooked ever since! Can’t go wrong if you start there 🙂


  3. Hi Geri! I discovered your blog from that first Lucky mag feature, and have been following you ever since! Everything you post about has always been SO relevant to what I’m interested in, so I really think you might like Rhonda Patrick’s foundmyfitness podcast. She has a PhD in biomedical science and does research on aging, cancer, and nutrition, which is basically wellness at a cellular level with scientific research backed information. Some of the ideas are pretty unique or ones I don’t hear much about and include easy ways to prevent aging and diseases (in a HUGE way, like scientifically proven to add years to your life), such as consuming veggies that contain sulforaphane, sauna use, and time restricted eating.
