10. Life Kit by National Public Radio (NPR)

According to the description on Spotify: “Everyone needs a little help being a human. From sleep to saving money to parenting and more, we talk to the experts to get the best advice out there.

During quarantine, this has been a go-to when I want to learn about something new or better my ways at adulting. 

9. Ted Talk Radio Hour by NPR 

Another NPR podcast, but this one is definitely a favorite. Thanks to my professors, I have become very appreciative of TED Talks; it is another opportunity to learn about something new that I didn’t learn in the classroom, and to make it even better, there are so many different topics to learn about. This particular episode is all about meditating on loneliness. According to the website, “explore the biggest questions of our time with the help of the world’s greatest thinkers.
