Last month, I shared the three most irresistible podcasts in my queue -- the ones that get played the second I see a new upload, no matter where I am. These rotate often for me, and today I've got three new ones.
1. Women of the Hour. I'm a big fan of Lena Dunham's and after listening to the short preview episode for this show back in October, I had a good feeling I'd enjoy it. I'm so glad that Women of the Hour is living up to the hype for me. There have only been three full episodes so far -- six uploads total -- but I've been blown away by each one.
Friendship (episode one) was worth three separate listens from me, and two weeks later, it still has me daydreaming about potential pen-pals (any takers?!). Lena & Jemima (the Friendship bonus episode) was my second favorite from this show -- required listening for fans of Girls.
2. #girlboss radio. I haven't read Sophia Amoruso's book (yet!) and have never owned any of Nasty Gal's clothing, so I didn't feel an immediate connection to this podcast. After the first episode, I almost unsubscribed because I just wasn't feeling the interview style. But I stuck around and I'm really glad that I did. Episodes two and three -- interviews with Youtube star Grace Helbig and nail artist Madeline Poole -- were wonderful. And the most recent upload featuring Nasty Gal's CEO Sheree Waterson was really inspiring. I'm definitely going on an "adventure walk" this weekend.
3. Monocycle with Leandra Medine. It feels sort of like cheating to include Monocycle since there has only been one episode to date, but this new podcast has me pressing the refresh button like never before. If you're a longtime reader of Man Repeller like I am, you will love Monocycle.
Burnout (the first episode) was not at all what I expected from this show. In its introductory paragraph, Leandra wrote a spot-on synopsis: "Monocycle will cover a range of topics that include feelings, feelings, and what it's like to feel feelings ... I sort of feel like we're just about to round third base." It was a surprisingly intimate but totally relatable look into her life, and it has me really looking forward to what's next.
So what do you think? Are you obsessed with any of these podcasts like I am? What are the shows you can't resist? I'd love to know!
