5 Spotify Podcasts to Tune Into This Year

Learn, laugh and get inspired as you go

It’s amazing to think it’s already been a year of life in quarantine. While staying safe at home, we now know that streaming has become a kind of saving grace. Netflix films and series carry us through; new song and album releases at least keep us excited. Then, there’s the newfound appreciation for podcasts that do more than just entertain. In recent months, we’ve zeroed in on the channels and programs that have inspired and informed—and we’re here to share them with you. 

Ahead, our picks for Spotify podcasts to tune into this year.

Skimm This

For when you’d prefer quick, snappy recaps of the week’s most important headlines

“Skimm This is a weekly news program that breaks down important stories from the past week and adds context and clarity to answer the questions on your mind. Catch new episodes every Thursday evening.”

Wonder After Dark

For when you’re in the mood for real talk and honest, candid conversations

“Real stories, real questions, real conversations and, more importantly, real feelings on topics rarely discussed in the open. We talk to friends and consult the experts in the search for some answers.

Wonder After Dark is the first podcast series on sex and relationships by Wonder and Globe Studios.”
