About This List

Here are some of the indie podcasts we're loving this week (January 27 - 31, 2020). Enjoy!
  1. Not Your Little Lady is a podcast featuring women living outside of the South's socially accepted norms. Listen and relate as we laugh, cry and share stories about facing obstacles and how it feels to come out on the other side. We will talk about things that piss us off, the booze we like to drink, and historical women who have made a difference. Topic experts will give advice and relay realistic steps on how to implement it in our daily lives. We’ll explore the importance of women owning their past, present and future while keeping it light and funny, like a lady will do.
  2. We know their names and we know their music but do you know all the rest? Earfloss: a music history podcast is a biweekly podcast that takes a deep dive into the history of popular musicians . From the past artists who were responsible for the direction of music to current and relevant musicians, each episode looks at a different artist to take a glance at the rise and sometimes fall of the world's most talented musicians
  3. Celebrating 10 years of podcasting in July, 2020! Hollywood’s most talented comedians and writers share true, personal stories. Watch Story Worthy on HBO’s “I’ll Be Gone In The Dark” this summer with Michelle McNamara.

  4. A Good Podcast About Bad Relationships
  5. Imagine being arrested for taking pictures of a farm, harassed for reading a storybook to children, or jailed for displaying a photograph in a museum. Censorship like this seems unimaginable, but it’s real and happens every day. Bleeped tells these stories. Each episode relives a David and Goliath tale of an individual who triumphed over censorship from a powerful organization, showing that if you’ve been wronged, you can fight back and win!

  6. A podcast of 2 ghoulfriends talking all things true crime & paranormal. New episodes every Monday & Thursday.
  7. Two lesbians chatting about making babies and non-traditional families. Jaimie and Robin humorously go in-depth with weekly guests about their hopes, fears, and setbacks. The mission is to normalize, elevate and celebrate, while confirming that we're just like other parents, trying not to yell at our kids when they still haven't put their shoes on and we're 25 minutes late for school. The end result is a compelling podcast that amusingly explores the age-old question: what's it like to live as an LGBTQ family in a world built for the straights?
  8. Dive into classic and modern literature in a fun and accessible way featuring original and live performed music, voice acting, reading, story telling, in depth descriptions and insights into the mind of the author with the Knight Reader
  9. Join your hosts Allie and Tory each week to listen to them try something new and interview the people who inspire them. The topics can range from serious to ridiculous, so get ready to dive in to anything!
  10. Sam Buntich and Allie Raynor are horrified. Enter an abyss of lighthearted panic and heartfelt hysteria with a podcast that explores the ups and downs of being alive in 2020 (all through the lense of two unconscionably anxious women). The world is chaos: be horrified with us. Follow us on twitter at @ imhorrifiedpod
  11. On this weekly show, I'll be recommending a podcast episode based on what National Day it is (e.g. National Hangover Day). You'll also get at least two more diverse recommendations so you don't have to be one of those annoying bots that ask for them on twitter. I promise it will be short and semi-sweet because nobody should be subjected to listening to me for more than 5 minutes. You'll also hear from my friends just to prove I have them.This podcast uses the following third-party services for analysis: Chartable - https://chartable.com/privacy
  12. Hosted by Laura Cathcart Robbins, a writer and a recovery thriver and survivor, Laura found herself in an all too familiar position. In September 2018, she was the only black woman in the room at Brave Magic, a famed writer’s retreat. After it was over, she wrote about her “only one” experience in The Huffington Post and comments started flooding into her DM. These comments were from people from all races, ethnicities, creeds, and nationalities who had felt “othered”. Laura beautifully interviews a person about their Only One story each episode and addresses as many of those DM’s as possible in the process. In this podcast, you’ll hear raw, vulnerable accounts from people who are, like most of us, just eager to connect. Our hope is that The Only One In The Room will inspire a change of perspective in how we all see and hear each other’s stories. We want you think twice before judging the person standing next to you at a party, in the pick-up line at school or in a crowded subway car. This is a podcast for anyone who has ever felt alone in a room full of people – which is to say, that this podcast is for everyone.
  13. Jamie Loftus takes you through her year in the high-IQ Mensa society, from taking the test as a joke to spending the Fourth of July with 2000 angry Mensans in Phoenix. Chaos reigns, but at least it tests well.
  14. A thrilling podcast about the History of the Modern World. Humanity has been hard at work for centuries to empower itself with better tools and insights, from science and surgery to electricity and the Internet, and this series celebrates the history of those triumphs. Compared to our ancestors, we live like superheroes and sorcerers, endowed with powers they could never have imagined. But how did we achieve all this? Historian Brad Harris tackles that question head on, revealing how the most important scientific, technological, and cultural advancements in history began, and inspiring us to keep reaching for new historical triumphs along the way.
