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…

Through a weaving of intuitively channeled downloads, answers to listener questions, and lessons around the cards, Tarot for the Wild Soul explores the Tarot as helpful, applicable medicine that can provide nourishment and clarity to us in our day to day lives.”

Fortnight of Fright: Spooky Podcasts With Maggie


We have Maggie from Macarons & Paperbacks telling us all about her favorite spooky podcasts. I loooove podcasts and some of these are my favorites, but others I haven’t listened to before! Check out what Maggie has to say and then  head over to Amy Brittany’s blogs to see who they have featured today! Don’t forget, we are hosting wonderful bloggers & authors for two whole weeks with recipes, book recommendations and a lot more awesome!

I love listening to podcasts. I find that it’s a great way to fill up my time when I’m on my work commute or doing housework and I don’t feel like listening to an audiobook or putting on music. The podcasts I listen to tend to be of the historical or true crime persuasion, and some of them can get pretty spooky (especially when they’re about real life events). If you’ve visited my blog, macarons & paperbacks, you may know that I identify with Catherine Morland from Northanger Abbey: we both like to indulge in scary stories, specifically at night so our imaginations can get the best of us.

Here is a list of some spooky podcasts that have kept me up at night (and have given me the heebie-jeebies even in broad daylight). Since I’m a Classics lover (if you couldn’t tell from my Northanger Abbey reference), I’ve also included some narrations of my favorite gothic short stories. Let’s me honest: no one does scary better than Edgar Allan Poe 😉

Stuff You Missed in History ClassStuff You Missed in History Class – “The Hinterkaifek Farm”

Let’s start off with a mild one; although it’s about a gruesome unsolved family murder so I don’t know if that can be considered mild. Tracy and Holly host the SYMIHC podcast, where they “teach” about a variety of interesting topics and events throughout history. Usually they focus on topics such as war battles, royalty, and important figures in STEM fields, but sometimes, especially this time of year, they cover unsolved murders. One of the first SYMIHC episodes I listened to was this “History Mysteries Double Feature”, and it really creeped me out (but also made me become a regular listener to the podcast). The first part of the episode is about a couple that vanished on their honeymoon, and the second part, the really creepy part, is about a family that was murdered by someone who may have been hiding in their farmhouse for weeks or months. Have fun sleeping after listening to that story… Continue reading
