International Podcast Day: Top 10 Podcast Picks

Podcasts are a great go-to for staying entertained on a long drive, playing in the background while doing household chores, or staying up-to-date with the latest news. In honor of International Podcast Day on September 30th, we’ve asked our co-pilots to share their favorites. See our top 10 picks below:


Conan O’Brien Needs a Friend by Team Coco & Earwolf 

“He always has great chemistry among guests. He is an amazing interviewer – he always asks smart questions and makes guests at ease. And it’s soooo funny – even live ads reading is funny.” 

–Anya Nelson, VP of Public Relations 


Lore by Aaron Mahnke and Grim & Mild

“I really like the Lore podcast. It’s fascinating to learn the often macabre history behind places, phrases, customs, etc.”

–Amber Olivieri, Financial Controller 


1619 by New York Times, Nikole Hannah-Jones

“A critical look at how slavery truly transformed America. The perspective and points throughout are worth your time.”

–Maria Bruk, Senior Account Director


Crime Junkie by Audio Chuck, Ashley Flowers

“Crime Junkie has been my go-to podcast lately. It’s a true crime podcast hosted by Ashley Flowers – super informative, creepy, and she’s a really great storyteller. Great podcast for anyone who is interested in anything having to do with creepy true crime stuff! Timely for spooky season too. :)”

–Shannon Mullins, Senior Account Executive


Girlboss Radio by Girlboss Radio

“It’s hosted by Sophia Amoruso, female entrepreneur and CEO/Founder of Girlboss, a professional networking platform built for ambitious women. She interviews a bunch of powerful, career-driven women in leadership positions at different businesses, some are corporate and some are ‘side-hustlers.’ They’ve got some great stories to share which have really kept me motivated during quarantine.”

–Lexi Herosian, Senior Account Executive


Office Ladies by Earwolf, Jenna Fischer & Angela Kinsey

“I would definitely recommend this podcast for anyone who’s a fan of The Office. It’s super entertaining, and The Office is my favorite TV show so it’s really interesting to get to re-experience it with behind-the-scenes views of every episode with the actors’ perspectives and commentary. Not to mention Jenna Fischer and Angela Kinsey are hilarious!”

–Rachel Tierney, Marketing Associate


Stuff You Should Know by iHeartRadio

“Each episode is about a different topic that typically people have heard of, but don’t know a lot about. If you’re a naturally curious person or have ever wanted to know about champagne, satanism, how police chases work, or the difference between wasps and bees, then this is the podcast for you. It’s something that I will typically have on while I work, since it’s fairly educational and overall just very interesting.” 

–Lindsay Kerr, Junior Graphic Designer


Free Solo Podcast by Ethan Smith

“Ethan is a friend of mine who started this inspirational podcast featuring individual stories about how people have gotten from point A to point B in navigating the different challenges of life…very interesting.”

–Sara DeMoranville, Account Executive


Jordan, Jesse, GO! by 

“Jordan, Jesse, Go is one that I listen to quite a bit – it’s a show without any kind of premise, but it’s funny, smart, and endearing – although very dumb and often fairly vulgar. It’s definitely a good, light-hearted podcast option.”

–Kendall Hatch, Senior Content Writer


Design Matters by Debbie Millman

“It goes into the lives of various creatives and talks about who they are, how they grew up and how that influences their work and philosophy.”

–Amelia Oon, Graphic Designer
