Podcasts to Learn Something
A few years ago Brit Morin, decided to try something new each week for an entire year: everything from learning to decorate cakes, intermittent fasting, talking to strangers, meditation, learning Spanish, and more. Now she’s taking that concept, and made a podcast out of it. Her guests are actors, comedians, writers, chefs, financial advisers and pretty much anyone you can think of that can teach you something new.
These episodes are like short little bursts of information to get your finances on track. Ranging from 1 – 11 minutes long, they’re short and simple but pack loads of information to help you save, and get out of debt and stop living paycheck to paycheck. Host Jesse Mecham has been podcasting through the current pandemic and continues to offer timely advice for these unusual times.

Danielle gives you a behind the scenes look into artists’ lives, the stories behind their work, who they’re friends with, and all the juicy stuff you want to know about the artwork that no one ever tells you!

What started as a podcast of two guys watching all 8 seasons of Gilmore Girls and analyzing it episode by episode has evolved to now cover the Marvelous Mrs. Maisel, too. They go deep into all things Stars Hollow. If you’re a fan, you’ll appreciate how seriously they take their shows.
This podcast had its finale in 2019, but it’s worth returning to. Every week for 16 episodes, the host reads entries from her teenage diaries written in 1995 and then hyper analyzes them with a friend. It’s so cringe-inducing it’s hilarious. It’s like opening up a time capsule and this podcast was inside.
