Top 70 Podcast Recs Menu

Recently I polled my awesome Instagram community (join us HERE!) on their very favorite podcasts in 7 different categories: pop culture, news, tru crime, comedy, faith/self-help, kids and honorable mentions. After combing through THOUSANDS of submissions, here is the top 70 podcast recs menu for your next listen!

Now. I will admit that I am new to the podcast game, and I actually vehemently did NOT understand why anyone in their right mind would want to add MORE voices inside their brains (this coming from a part-time homeschooling mom of four little kids, lord help my tired ears), so I’m def not the podcast expert and have only listened to a handful of the list below (*hint: read reviews first!). But recently we moved and I now have to drive the kids over one town to go to school a couple times a week. And that means…glorious alone time in my car!!! Hooray! Thus I’ve delved into podcast land, and while most of my listens are light and silly, I have really enjoyed opening my mind and my ears to new ideas, perspectives and humorous takes on this weird world we’re in. If you need a new listen, here’s the top 70 podcast recs menu from my IG buddies to you!

My personal listens from the list above include:

  1. The Popcast with Knox and Jamie (favorite for sure)
  2. Armchair Expert
  3. You’re Wrong About (Princess Diana series)
  4. Bible Binge
  5. Smartless
  6. WOW in the World

What are some of your favorite podcasts? Did they make the menu? If not, please leave them below with maybe a little description so others can grab a good listen for themselves! Hope this was helpful if you are looking for a new way to pass the time!

    I can’t get enough of The Grove podcast! The Grove is the women’s ministers at Passion City Church in Atlanta. The leader is Shelley Giglio (Louie Giglio’s wife) and it seriously speaks life into me. The best for Christian women’s ministry!!

    You forgot my favourite! Cat and Nat’s Momtruths podcast. Amazing (Canadian!) moms who tell it like it is. They make you feel like a normal mom and that they’re friends of yours!

  3. Summer says:

    This is such a great list! Thanks for compiling and sharing!!!

    Criminal is a great true crime podcast by a phenomenal journalist, Phoebe Judge. The cases she covers are unique and her voice is so soothing. She also has another more “feel good” podcast called This is Love. She tells really beautiful stories that warm your heart. Also a big fan of The Rewatchables from The Ringer. They recap their favorite rewatchable movies and discuss different aspects of the movies in several categories. I usually find myself laughing or having strong opinions one way or another about the things they have to say. Definitely a language warning, but it’s a fun way to rediscover movies you might have forgotten about.

    Thanks for compiling this list, Erin! I can’t wait to check out some more of these. 😊

    My girls really love Grimm, Grimmer, Grimmest! It’s just retelling of the Grimm Fairytails but the story telling is just so engaging and a lot of fun.

    Thank you for putting together this list and sharing! I can’t wait to start listening to some of these when I clean my house. 😀

    @morethanaseasonpodcast – Podcast for women who’s significant others are in the sports industry. Learn, laugh, and grow together in this industry. We talk about what everyone experiences, but no one discusses!

  7. Whitney says:

    I love “Imagined Life” from Wondery. They take you on a journey of a famous (or infamous) person’s life like you are walking in their shoes but you don’t know who it is till the end. They give clues along the way so you can try to figure it out, but it’s SO good!

  8. Anne Hofheins says:

    Love all these suggestions, thank you Erin! Two of my favorite podcasts are Imagined Life (tells you the life story of someone you think you know). At the end you find out who that person is. Next is Family Secrets. You learn about different stories and the secrets that are kept from people, or the secrets people are keeping. Yay for podcasts and audiobooks, they get me through my work day. 💗

    Duchess the Podcast is DELICIOUS! I listened to ALL the episodes TWICE! 😀


  10. Bridget Thompson says:

    I like the “ To Love, Honor and Vacuum” with Shelia Gregoire. She talks about some of the myths and mistruths in some of the evangelical teachings on sex and marriage. She uses biblical truth to dispel a lot of wrong thinking around those topics.

  11. Debbie Schutte says:

    Dave Ramsey for financial / life advice 👌🏻

  12. Christie says:

    Love the “Jesus Calling” podcast. Very inspiring stories and lots of celebrities have amazing testimonies.

  13. Julie says:

    Knead to Know podcast with Gemma
    From @Biggerbolderbaking

  14. cindy dacey says:

    you have to listen to marlo thomas & phil Donahue “double Date podcast. Its so good. They interview famous couples that have had lasting marriages.

  15. Sally says:

    “Your own backyard”
    is the best crime podcast.

  16. Whitney says:

    I love the Hold On podcast, it’s a guy and girl and it’s just like everyday convo. Pretty funny and easy to listen to!

  17. Stephanie says:

    This is great I’m always looking for new podcasts! I listen to a lot of the ones on your top 70 list. I would add Personality Hackers for anyone into Myers Briggs personality deep dives. I would call it a self help category. Also recently listened to Bear Brook which was a short series in the True Crime genre and wasn’t too graphic! Lastly is Hardcore History by Dan Carlin. Macro discussions on large historical events. Very in depth linear looks into some of the big events of history. Blueprint for Armageddon was one of them about WWI and it was great.

  18. Christina says:

    A parenting podcast that has been invaluable to me is called “Raising Boys and Girls”. It is just filled with wisdom from 3 Christian therapists about what to expect from our kids during each stage of development, and how we can help them through each stage! It’s parenting gold!!
