Podcasts to Try

Myths and Legends by Jason Weiser

This is probably my go-to Podcast for several months and I’m still not caught up. I enjoy Jason’s humor and sarcasm in relating what are often gruesome and misogynistic fairy tales, legends and myths. He also makes efforts to explore less well known tales and many I have never heard before.


Happier by Gretchen Rubin and Elizabeth Craft

I have been listening to this podcast for several years after reading Gretchen’s book The Happiness Project. As a fellow upholder, I find myself nodding along to many of Gretchen’s thoughts and advice. I enjoy the interplay between the two sisters and find this podcast to be consistently uplifting. I often finish an episode and find a bit of extra energy and focus to move forward “Onward and Upward.”


Lore by Aaron Mahnke

Knowing that I like things a bit spooky but not downright scary, my husband calls this my “Teenage Horror Podcast.” Aaron has a knack for story telling and I like the way that he weaves a common thread through multiple different stories in each episode. He also finds a nice balance between skepticism and compassion for the people in these dark legends. A good listen for people who like their horror on the mild side.
