I've written about my favorite podcasts before but today's post is strictly about those that stick to one topic - pop culture! Let's face it, I'm all about keeping up with what's going on in the celebrity world and I love it when someone else can break it down for me in an entertaining way. I would like to say I am in training for becoming an unbeatable pop culture trivia contestant but really, I'm just doing it for fun and as a way to decompress. They're great during a workout or grocery shopping. Hey, I always have my earbuds in when I'm grocery shopping because I hate it so much! A good, juicy podcast makes it bearable!
Here are a few juicy, NSFW, pop culture podcasts that will help you not take life too seriously. Probably shouldn't let your kids listen though :)
(I use the Overcast app to organize all of my podcasts but you can find all of these on Itunes!)
Now this one is dedicated to making fun of everything that is Bravo. Ronnie and Ben recap some of the most popular shows on the Bravo network like all of the Real Housewives, Top Chef and Below Deck. These guys give me life! Most of the time, these podcasts are just as good if not better than the actual show! Be ready for some silliness, awesome impressions, lots of laughter and hilariousness.
Perez gets a bad wrap for his reputation for being pretty snarky in the past. He has a website dedicated to everything celebrity, music and hot topics. I really have never followed him much before finding this podcast other than the occasional scandal that warranted a juicy google search. I love this podcast though! He has a cohost, Booker, who doesn't let Perez get away with too much and keeps him in check. The back and forth between the two are what makes the show. They talk about music, celebrities, politics, anything that is in the news that isn't a snooze fest. LOVE IT. This is a good way to get caught up with pop culture all in about 30 minutes. You will have just enough tidbits of hot topics for a good conversation starter!
Heather is a comic and a former writer on Chelsea Lately. Each episode she talks about what's happening on the latest Real Housewives episode (not a full recap like Watch What Crappens), the drama in her own life (she has a series called Serial Sister dedicated to how insane her sister is), and what her comedian friends are doing. There is really nothing Heather won't talk about. O.J., Jon Benet Ramsey, the Kardashians (she's friends with Kris). She usually has some pretty good guests on too. I've listened to the Tamara Judge interview, Kelly Dodd interview and several others that were super juicy. She really goes in for the inside scoop!
4) Who Weekly
Bobby and Lindsey discuss everything that is celebrities-that-no-one-knows. Their tagline is "Everything you need to know about the celebrities you don't." These two keep it short and sweet and answer all of your questions for those no-name people in Hollywood that you know nothing about but hear their names from time to time. They are like pop culture detectives!
Brendan and Dan talk about all of their favorite reality shows including RuPaul's Drag Race. They also gab about news topics, celebrity scandal, Real Housewives, and all the hot gossip. They spill the tea! You can count on these two guys to give you the scoop.
Please share with me if you have a favorite one too so I can add it to my list!
