Seven Podcasts To Check Out If You ‘re Looking For A Laugh

We ‘re in the second month of quarantine, and if you haven ‘t reached the bottom of Netflix ‘s library, you ‘ll be there soon.

Everyone is doing their best not to go completely insane and stay in good spirits while stuck inside our own homes, and I ‘m gonna go out on a limb here and guess that you ‘re probably looking for something new to listen to. Spotify playlists get old, the news is depressing, AM/FM Radio is certifiably the worst, but hey ‘ what about podcasts? Very cool in theory, but the problem with podcasts is that there are just so dang many of them. It seems like everyone and their dog has a podcast, so whether you ‘re just starting out or you ‘re an avid podcast listener but you ‘re looking for something new to get hooked on, it can be difficult trying to find the good ones when there are so many to sift through.

So, to make things a little easier for you, here are a few podcasts for you to check out. A few of them might teach you some cool things you never knew, a few might give you some insight into the lives of people you ‘ve always wondered about, but all of them will give you a good laugh.
