Listening to podcasts is a good hobby to start for anxiety.
I first discovered the world of podcasts when I got a new Ipod and noticed all Podcasts available to you. My commutes are long and very packed with other commuters. I found the commute would make me anxious as I was sitting down for much a long time. Podcasts really help me to get lost in the story and not worry about my long commute. It also makes the commute feel a lot shorter and it calms me down.
There are a lot of podcasts you can listen too depending on what you like. Personally, I like the ones about history, comedy, paranormal and true crime. I have made a list for you check out! I’ve include their website for you to see where you can listen too. I listen to these below on my Ipod through the Apple podcast.
Secret life of Canada
The Secret life of Canada explores all people, places and stories that are not discussed when we talk about Canada. It has taught me so much about Canada and it shows there is much more to learn. I also love the two co-hosts, they’re very charming. I find this podcast very important to me that I’m patreon. I highly recommend to listen to podcast if you like Canadian history or interested to learn more about Canada.
Deadly Manners is a special podcasts as it is drama series (fiction). The podcast is about a dinner party that goes wrong when there is a snow storm and the lights go out. You might recognize some voices such as Kristen Bell, Rupaul and MichelleVisage. I highly recommend to listen to this podcast if you like to hear a non-real story and figure out who might be the murderer.
Snap Judgement Presents: Spooked
Snap Judgement Presents: Spooked is a really creepy podcasts that tells stories of people who have encountered the paranormal such as ghosts or aliens. There were some episodes that truly freaked me out. I highly recommend this podcast if you like first hand story telling about creepy experiences.
And That’s why We Drink
And That’s why We Drink is such a great podcast with two hosts that discuss ghost stories and true crime stories. Em is the one who drinks milkshakes and tells ghost stories while Christine is the one who drinks wine and tells the true crime stories. They’re both really charming and funny when they tell their stories. I highly recommend this podcast if you like both ghost stories and true crime stories.
RuPaul: What’s the Tee with Michelle Visage
RuPaul: What’s the Tee with Michelle Visage is a podcast with Rupaul and Michelle Visage. They usually have a guest to join their conversation and they have general conversations about life. It is funny and sweet. I love the dynamic duo of RuPaul and Michelle. I highly recommend to this podcast if you want some humour in your life.
Canadian True Crime
Canadian True Crime is a podcast that reports on Canadian true crime stories. The host does a real thorough research on the crime and it is really well produced. I love this podcast because it focuses on Canadian true crime and the host does a great job at presenting the story. I would say to check out this podcast if you want to learn more on Canadian True Crime.
My Favorite Murder
My Favorite Murder is a podcast with two co-hosts who tell true crime stories. They’re very honest about the topic of mental health and remind you that therapy is okay for you. They’re also funny. I know it’s weird to say that considering they’re talking about true crime but they manage to bring humour to tough stories. I highly recommend this podcast if you want to hear about true crime stories with a hint of humour.
