What podcasts are you listening to these days? I listen to at least one episode every day during my commute, so I’m always looking for recommendations. Here are three great podcasts I’ve recently discovered and love…
Hosted by Lena Dunham and produced by BuzzFeed, this miniseries covers everything from friendship, to love, to work, to bodies, and features guests like Emma Stone and June Squibb. “Please subscribe if you like bad-asses, deep questions, giggling, sexual healing, Gaia life force, style, summer-camp, cute kids, the Internet and feminine power,” said Lena. I don’t know how I missed this when it was first released last winter, but I’m so happy I found it.
This podcast brings to life some of the favorite essays from the NYTimes Modern Love column, read by familiar voices such as Jason Alexander, Emmy Rossum, Dakota Fanning, and Judd Apatow. Here are four episodes I loved: ‘Seesawing Libidos,’ ‘One Last Swirl,’ ‘A Millennial’s Guide To Kissing,’ and ‘Mom/Not Mom/Aunt.’
Allison Behringer tells her honest story of navigating New York City and a new career in tech and media in this new podcast. Until recently, I worked in the same office as Allison in the Meatpacking District, and funnily enough, our stories in NYC are similar in many ways. Allison explores what it means to find your place at startup, which can be challenging if you’re coming from a career that’s not related to startups (Allison worked non-profits before moving to NYC), the instability of startup jobs, and negotiating salaries. I’d recommend this for anyone interested in startups and NYC.
