Sometimes there’s nothing more uncomfortable than a quiet house or walk to work. While there is something to being in silence, but sometimes it can be unsettling. For me, the best solution to uncomfortable silence (other than Spotify) is to put on a podcast.
You could always put the news on the television but that could be stressful. I like to listen to something with a little bit more of a comforting story. Because lets be honest, most news broadcasts are mostly people arguing back and forth senselessly on a topic that would better be discussed calmly.
Here are some of my favorite comedic podcasts that you should definitely give a listen the next time you can’t stand the quiet.
- My Dad Wrote a Porno
I may or may not be listening to this right now…
But honestly, this NSFW podcast is an absolutely hilarious. The name of the podcast is spot on… it’s literally about one of the comedian’s father’s erotica.
Him and his two comedian friends read through his father’s – who they only refer by his pen name, Rocky Flinstone – erotica called Belinda Blinked.
You’ll find yourself cackling outload to such a degree that your neighbors might think that you’re having a mental break.
- Your Mom’s House
If you’ve ever wondered what it’d be like to be a comedian married to another comedian, you must listen to this podcast. Tom Segura and Christina Pazsitzky is are both hilarious on their own, but give these married standup comedians a podcast and you’ll find yourself shook… with laughter.
These two have no qualms talking about their sex life, touching on hilariously terrible topics, and entertaining their devoted fans.
You really ought to check this out if you’re looking to laugh at some seriously depraved humor.
- Anna Faris is Unqualified
You might know Anna Faris as the House Bunny one of the girls from the Scary Movie series or as Chris Pratt’s ex-wife. Either way, you may forget that that this woman is seriously funny.
Her podcast includes discussions with celebrity guests (most of which who usually don’t make it to the usual late night shows or podcasts), rousing games of would-you-rather?, and her answering her listeners’ relationship advice.
If you’re looking to listening to something that feels relatable – as you too might feel “unqualified” – you really ought to check out this podcast!
- Guys We Fucked
I mean… how could you go wrong with a podcast with this name?
In the #MeToo era, co-hosts Krystyna Hutchinson and Corinne fisher set out to start a project where they talked with men they’ve slept with. While it started as two women talking to men they’d fucked, it blossomed into a full-fledged feminist podcast complete with testimonials, confessionals, and discussions with experts.
If you’re looking for some uncensored, R-rated girl power. Give this a listen!
- 2 Dope Queens
Odds are you’ve probably heard from Phoebe Robinson and/or Jessica Williams. These two have risen to comedic fame pretty quickly… but their podcast has topped the charts!
Tune it to hear 2 Dope (and comedic) Queens talk about everything from celebrities to relationships to pop culture! This is definitely worth a listen.
