2 Podcasts You Need to Listen to

Hi guys! I just had the best weekend out in Dallas, although I did manage to come home with a cold. Hopefully it will pass soon! But until then, this girl is going on the chicken noodle soup diet (chicken and stars to be exact because I am a child). One of my favorite recent discoveries, especially for traveling, has got to be the Podcast app. I have heard so many people talk about it, but just recently hopped on the bandwagon.
2 Podcasts you need to listen to
My favorite part so far has got to be the simplicity of it all. You just need to make sure that you download enough episodes for the duration of your travel while you still have a WIFI connection- as some of the files are too large to do over your regular network. Once downloaded, prepare to sit back and enjoy your ride! As I've mentioned, I'm new to the Podcast world, but I'd love to share my 2 favorites so far. And PLEASE if you have any that you love, let me know about it in the comments! I'm almost caught up on my current podcast and will have to wait for the more recent installments to be finished up!

First, one word. Serial. The first season of this series absolutely sucked me in! I have always been a fan of Law and Order/ Criminal Minds type shows, so this was a great first Podcast series for me. I am so thankful that I came into it after the series was completed, because I don't think I could stand to wait in between episodes! I was a little disappointed with the ending, (don't worry, no spoilers here!) but partially expected it due to the nature of the case. In addition to the story, the show is well-written and nicely produced. I'm really excited for the second season to come out and am curious about which case with be selected. You can read more about the series on their website.

My next recommendation- and current obsession- is Disney Story Origins. As a serious Disney fan, this was an excellent discovery for me!! The show takes the familiar Disney stories we grew up with (and the newer ones) and explores them side-by-side with the myths that inspired them. If you have ever found yourself humming "Colors of the Wind" or "I'll Make a Man Out of You", this is for you. There is usually one episode per movie but sometimes, for the more in-depth stories, they are split into multiple. I honestly have a hard time picking a favorite, but I really enjoyed "Aladdin" and am loving "Alice in Wonderland" right now. You can read more about the series on their website as well.

I absolutely love having something to listen to in the airport or during my flight. I love to read during trips as well, but it's always nice to switch things up. As I mentioned, I'm almost caught up to the DSO podcast and welcome any recommendations you may have. Please leave them below!

Do you listen to Podcasts? Which is your favorite? Have you listened to either of these?


  1. The Disney Origins podcast sounds right up my alley! Thanks for sharing and I hope you feel better!

  2. Love the Disney one!

  3. I loved Serial. I listened to it nonstop.

  4. I loved Serial!
    I definitely recommend you check out Sword & Scale since you like the true crime type story!
    And also, Undisclosed because they go more in depth to the Adnan case -- so good.

  5. What a cool idea! I never listen to actual story-based podcast. I started listening to podcasts when my migraines got really bad in high school. I found some awesome relaxation podcasts that have helped so much, I'm totally going to have to check out the Disney Origins podcasts, those sounds awesome!

  6. I myself am not the biggest Disney fan but a TON of my friends are obsessed, so I for sure will be passing on your Disney Origins recommendation. :-) Hope you're feeling better soon!

    xoxo A

  7. I didn't know there was a Disney podcasts. How amazing. I never really listened to a podcast cast so I'm definitely going to look up this one in the iTunes Store.

  8. Yes, Serial was amazing! There's a reason why so many people talk about it. Disney Story Origins sounds so interesting!
