Podcasts, Anyone?

I’m a podcast addict. I listen to them while cleaning, writing, driving, and anywhere else I can fit them in.

I listen to an array of podcasts, with the three main categories being writing related, true crime, and history podcasts.

With all the COVID-19 craziness going on, my listening time has almost doubled.

If you’ve suddenly found yourself with a lot of time on your hands, maybe these 10 recommendations will give you something new to listen to. Here are some of my favorites, in no particular order.
I’m a HUGE fan of the television series Unsolved Mysteries. The hosts of Resolved Mysteries takes the old tv show episode by episode and brings us the latest updates on each segment. Eliza, Karlin, and Alison are three friends who decided to create Resolved Mysteries because they, along with so many of us, enjoyed the show so much. You can tell they’re friends IRL, and their snark makes me laugh. And some of the updates, y’all, are mindblowing.
I was a fan of this podcast back when it was called In Sight and had two hosts. Now, Charlie brings us true crime stories alone, and the Crimelines absolutely grows better with each episode. Charlie details each crime in chronological order, gives all the facts in a non-biased way, and offers us her own thoughts about each crime.
As a HUGE fan of British history, I fell in love with this podcast from the beginning. The BHP details the history of the island from the very beginning, and plans to go through WWII. Right now, we’re almost to 1066. Jamie brings insight and valuable information to those of us who love history but don’t have the time or inclination to do deep-dive research on our own.
“Any resemblance to a boring history class is purely coincidental!”
That’s Susan’s and Beckett’s tagline for The History Chicks, and it’s spot on. This podcast brings us interesting women from history. The hosts dive into the background of each subject, and gives the listener a detailed podcast on the lives and experiences on these women. I absolutely adore this podcast.
Already Gone focuses primarily on cases from the Michigan area. She brings us information about people that, in most instances, the media has forgotten about. Older stories, cases that have gone cold, that sort of thing. Nina has the perfect voice for podcasting, and she’s always respectful of the victim.
The Trail Went Cold, hosted by Robin Warder, is a podcast that brings us older, unsolved mysteries. Robin lays out the facts then gives us possible theories about what happened. I’ve been listening from the beginning, and I love it.
The SPA Girls gives indie authors useful news and tips on self-publishing. They also brings us interviews with successful authors, who share their stories and offer tips. It’s an informative, funny, and knowledgeable podcast.
This podcast offers writers the things successful authors wish they’d known when they were starting out. Wish I’d Known Then is a great podcast for new author and authors looking to up their game.
Southern Mysteries brings us tales and legends from the southern United States. Shannon Ballard, the host, delivers a solid podcast, and I think you’ll enjoy listening to it.
The picture says it all. Christina Kaye offers advice on how to improve your writing. I’m a firm believer that every author, no matter how successful, has room for improvement. Write Your Best Book is a newer podcast, but it’s well worth a listen.
If you decide to try out any of these podcasts, drop me a comment here or email me and let me know what you think. If you have any suggestions for me, please feel free to do the same. I’m always looking for new podcasts to enjoy!
