So to get straight to it, I think posts to the blog are going to start coming in once a week until I can get school under control. Blah!
If you read my last post you heard all about my hell week where I had to miss an entire week of school, which is no bueno if you’re trying to maintain straight As. I also have two papers that I need to think about writing super soon. So as I try to de-stress while getting my shiz done at the same time, I’m going to try to maintain at least a once a week post on Books and Bellinis.
Sound good? Cool.
So lately I’ve been trying to incorporate podcast listening into my daily routine. It’s a little difficult because it’s not like I can listen to it while I do my school work (which takes up a lot of my time). However, I find that in the morning, instead of watching TV, just popping on a podcast instead, maybe as I clean my room or get ready for my day. In the car is another opportunity as well, or maybe while I go for a walk I can listen to one.
In an effort to get myself motivated to listen to podcasts more often, I thought I would share 5 podcasts that I either listen to right now or plan on listening to very soon.
Does anyone else listen to podcasts? Any suggestions for channels you like? Let me know!
✨TSC Him & Her Podcast✨
Okay so you all know my love for Lauryn Evarts from The Skinny Confidential and how much I have a crush on her blog. Well, a few months ago she started her podcast and I’m so proud of how far she’s come, really. She talks about all kinds of realness (nothing is ever really too TMI for me anyway), as well as how she promotes and develops her brand and business. Her fiance Michael is always on there as well and I think they work really well together while presenting male and female perspectives to their listeners. They have guests on their podcasts and are about to start taking in live callers which I think is totally awesome because it creates more of an intimacy with TSC and its followers! You all should definitely give it a listen.
✨The BEE Podcast✨
I don’t think I’ve ever really said it on the blog, but I LOVE American Psycho (the book/the movie is cool too). Bret Easton Ellis (the author) has his own podcast where he discusses all things film, music, and tv along with some criticism on millennials (he calls them generation wuss, which I find hilarious and almost accurate). Every episode has a guest with whom he discusses these things. Normally these guests are directors, actors, musicians, tv stars, etc. I find this podcast to be informative and thought provoking, which I enjoy very much.
So in school I’m studying Medieval literature, and I’ve always wanted to know what separates the rumors from the real as far as how the people of Medieval times actually lived. Upon searching through the podcast directory, I was able to find Medieval Archives and its description seemed to be just what I was looking for. It’s about 80 episodes deep right now so I’m hoping to put a good dent in it soon!
✨Breakdown & Accused✨
So I’m a huge sucker for murder mysteries, and I didn’t know that they were so popular on Podcasts! I had listened to Sarah Koenig’s Serial podcast (season 1) and loved that the story was unfolded to me so masterfully over the 10 ish episodes. The second season didn’t really grab me in the beginning so I abandoned it but I digress.
So I’m ready to give Breakdown and Accused a chance. Both of them do a similar thing that Serial did where they present you with these crimes and unfold the mystery and complications surrounding them throughout the investigation, over the course of about 10 episodes. I’m actually really excited to start on these!
And those are my podcasts that I’m pretty psyched about right now. Again let me know if you have any suggestions for others to subscribe to!
Hope everyone is having a good week and looking forward to some cool weekend plans! I’m going to be stuck studying all weekend, unfortunately. I have two papers I have to start researching for as well as a TON of reading to catch up on!
Wish me luck!
