I love politics, but sometimes I need a break. There is nothing I love more than a good non-political podcast. I listen to podcasts when I get ready in the mornings, when I go on walks, when I’m driving to and from work, and sometimes even as I’m getting ready for bed as a wind down. If you want to escape politics for a little while, here are some of great guilty pleasure podcasts:


PodcastOne / LadyGang

Hosted by Becca Tobin, actress and blogger, Keltie Knight – entertainment journalist, and Jac Vanek – founder and CEO of Jac Vanek clothing, these three girl bosses teamed up to create the LadyGang. They cover celebrity gossip, the latest trends, and host some amazing guests such as Laila Ali, Elle King, and Lea Michele.

“Mouthing Off with Olivia Caridi” / Mouthing Off With Olivia Caridi

She has a segment of the show called “Mouthing Off” where the guests get to rant on whatever they want for a few minutes and it is hysterical.

If you can’t tell, I love reality television, which would be a guilty pleasure if I felt guilty, and gossip that requires little to no thinking. These podcasts are how I recharge from politics and how I can escape from the media firestorms. I hope this can help you escape too!
