This isn’t necessarily a bookish topic but this year I’ve gotten really into podcasts so I wanted to share with you all my top 5. This was really hard to decide because I have so many favorites but I didn’t want this post to be too long so I decided to pick five but I might do a part two at some point. They’re arranged in no particular order.
Ancient History Fangirl
This podcast is hosted by Jenny Williamson and Genn McMenemy and is about ancient history (obviously). They mostly cover the Greco-Roman history but sometimes they branch out. It’s one of the most funny and engaging podcasts that I have come across and it being a ancient history podcast I love it so much.
Let’s Talk About Myths, Baby!
This podcast is hosted by Liv and she is freaking hilarious. It’s a Greek and Roman mythology podcast (though mostly Greek). I was sad to be all caught up on it because I always have such a great time listening to it but that makes it all the more fun when I new episode airs. Love it so much!
Fuckbois of Literature Podcast
This podcast is hosted by Emily Edwards (where she talks to guests) and is more related to literature, as you can probably tell. This is a really funny and relevant topic because there are SO MANY fuckbois in literature. I haven’t listened to all episodes yet because I only recently started the podcast but what I’ve heard so far I’ve been loooving!
Mile Higher Podcast
This podcast is hosted by Kendall Rae and her husband Josh Thomas. Kendall is also one of my favorite YouTubers. They have a different topic each week, from true crime to aliens to various mysteries and woke subjects. I usally watch their podcast on YouTube instead of listening on my phone because they’re both so fun to watch and sometimes their cute pets appear. Very high recommended podcast! (My fave actually).
Greek Mythology Retold
This podcast is hosted by Janell Rhiannon. She is also the author of the Homeric Chronicles Series, which are favorite books of mine. This is a podcast on Greek Mythology and the Homeric Chronicles. You can also find Janell and the episodes on YouTube. I think this podcast is super interesting and female centered. Definitely check it out!
