I spent a ridiculous amount of time in 2021 listening to podcasts. They became an integral part of my everyday. For me, they were a window into the world as we stayed indoors.  

They gave me company in the early mornings as I paced around our dark bedroom rocking my infant son to sleep, on my long walks around the neighbourhood cemetery pushing him in the pram, on the bike for daycare dropoffs and pickups, while hanging the laundry, or doing the dishes after a long day. It felt like I was listening to podcasts anytime I wasn’t having a conversation.

So I’ve compiled a list of my favorite shows from 2021, and favorites from friends & acquaintances on Instagram. There’s something for everyone in this list.
