Some Self-Love Podcasts

Wow it has been a looooong time since I have posted! Hello, strange world! I was recommending some podcasts to some friends and I realized that it would be easier if I just threw them into a blogpost so that we had them all in one place…and here we are!

The podcasts below are all ones that I have listened to at least in part. I sometimes get bogged down with “narrators” or “preaching” so I tend to bop around to different podcasts and listen to whatever feels right at the time. I hope that you can find some (or many!) episodes from them to help you unlock what you need to be well. Go be a well-rounded badass! You are awesome. ❤

If you want to be a better human…


Unlocking Us by Brene Brown

“We are hardwired for connection, and connecting requires courage, vulnerability, and conversation. I want this to be a podcast that’s real, unpolished, honest, and reflects both the magic and the messiness of what it means to be human.”

I love Brene Brown and I love that she makes me feel like I want to do better and be better.

For mindfulness (and to learn about that brain of yours)…


Radio Headspace

“Every week, I’ll be talking to athletes, explorers, scientists, members of our Headspace community and more, to find out how the mind can drive us to reach our goals and change our lives, what is important to us and what motivates us, as well as the science behind why we make certain decisions, and think the way we do.”

If you have ever tried the Headspace app then you will love this. It is fascinating to learn about goes on in our brains and why we choose to do what we do!

If you need some body love…


She’s All Fat

“The podcast for body positivity, radical self-love, and chill vibes ONLY”

Beyond Books: 2015 Mid Year Check-In OR “The One With All the Recaps”

Heyyy there friends!

Lots of great things have been happening in my life so I thought that I would check in with you all! I work very hard to keep this blog a hobby that makes me happy and never something that I “must” do, which means when I am out there enjoying life, the blog stays pretty quiet. So with that in mind, I thought it would be fun to catch you all up on what I have been doing/reading/listening to for the first half of the year!


Lore Podcast


You guys, I can’t say enough great things about this podcast! Knowing my adoration for the macabre, Lindsey nudged me to give it a try and I am so happy that I did! So what is it? Lore is a bi-weekly (sigh, I know) podcast about true life scary stories. Each episode of Lore delves into a scary tale and uncovers the truth behind it! That’s right, we get a nice supernatural history lesson with each podcast! I was so enthralled by Lore that I actually went back and re-listened to some episodes! Now, I know most of you are thinking that this must be terrifying in order to hold my macabre interest! But you know what, it really isn’t! Some of the stories managed to get near my incredibly high threshold, but I played some episodes for my (incredibly sensitive and ahem..scaredy cat) boyfriend and he enjoyed them as well. So what I am trying to tell you is that this podcast is great for all types of listeners, those of you who love the macabre, and those of you who are in the mood for the kind of story you should listen to on a chilly October evening. Also check out Lore’s Twitter because Aaron is very fun and seems to really appreciate his fans. Also, we (ahem, I) am trying to come up with a name for our fandom…Loreates? Loreites? What say you fellow fandom dwellers?

For fans of: all things supernatural, the x-files, Welcome to Nightvale, Rick Yancy, Neil Gaiman, Mythology, folktales, chilly autum evenings…


Penny dreadful

Penny Dreadful is still going strong, if you like gothic literature then head over and binge this show because it is gloriously macabre and wonderful. Gotham started off slow but then I fell fast and hard for it. Batman villains, I was already in love before it even started. Outlander, though I am only half way through the season, I binged that entire half and can’t wait to devour more! The book wasn’t my favorite, but the show is stellar. All things Avengers are also my (and everyone’s) current obsession. Ant Man comes out next week and I can’t wait. Continue reading
