5 podcasts to listen to on campus

Over the past few years, podcasts have drastically risen in popularity. Internet personalities are now creating spaces for diverse audiences to laugh and connect with their personal stories. While The Post has various podcasts tailored to Ohio University students, there are other podcasts online that are equally enjoyable and informative shows about life as a whole. 

They may not provide a step-by-step guide to college and adulthood, but here are five great podcasts to listen to while on campus:

1. Moments Podcast with Lexi Hidalgo

Lexi Hidalgo started her self-help podcast in October 2021 after her career took off on TikTok and YouTube. She is most known for her job as a yogi and for her beachy aesthetics on social media. 

On the "Moments Pod," Hidalgo shares useful life advice from her perspective as a 23-year-old. She discusses topics like anxiety, self-discovery and comparing oneself to others. With nearly 120 episodes ranging from 20 to 60 minutes, Hidalgo shares stories about growing up, living in Florida and navigating the internet. She introduces each episode by telling her listeners that she wants them to feel inspired and feel as though they belong in their current place in the world.

2. Call Her Daddy with Alex Cooper

Starting in October 2018, "Call Her Daddy" is currently the most-listened-to podcast by women on Spotify. With episodes about raunchy sex stories and relationship advice, the podcast is heavily built on the college audience. With a comedic twist, Cooper and her guests empower and advocate for women.

Cooper, better known as Father Cooper by fans, has shared personal stories and hosted various celebrity guests like Madison Beer and Megan Fox. This podcast is perfect for a few good laughs, some thrilling story times and inspiring advice. The Post recently ranked the best episodes from "Call Her Daddy" for those interested in checking out the podcast. 

3. The Broski Report with Brittany Broski

Brittany Tomlinson, popularly known as Brittany Broski, has become a recognizable name due to her content on TikTok. Her career skyrocketed after a video of hers from August 2019 went viral. Since then, she has been a beacon of comedy for her fans who are part of "The Broski Nation." Her podcast currently sits at 626K subscribers on YouTube and has fun, informal topics that engage those of younger generations.

From her crushes of the week to her experiences with celebrities like Beyoncé and Hozier, host "Supreme Leader Broski" has created a strong and supportive community through her story times. With just 41 episodes, the podcast still tops the charts on Spotify and clips have become more abundant on other social media platforms. 

4. anything goes with Emma Chamberlain

In 2017, Emma Chamberlain began posting daily vlogs on YouTube, documenting her journey toward graduating high school, moving away from home and becoming an adult. Now boasting a whopping 12.1 million subscribers, the world fell in love with her authentic personality and editing style, and many members of Generation Z grew up alongside her online. Now, at 22 years old, Chamberlain has built a successful career as a model, owner of a coffee company and social media influencer. 

In April 2019, she began podcasting, originally under the title, "Stupid Genius." Chamberlain discussed topics ranging from an existential crisis and imposter syndrome to her hatred for spinach artichoke dip. 

Today, Chamberlain's podcast directly reflects the style of her early YouTube content, being real and vulnerable with her listeners. Although her podcast has been criticized by fellow influencers, who have called it "out of touch," she still provides a transparent, conversation-like experience through her episodes. It's a good way to pass the time and enjoy a good laugh or two. Recently, she started inviting guests to her show, such as her parents and Mac Demarco

5. Therapuss with Jake Shane

As the newest host on the podcast scene from this list, Shane's new show has only 12 "sessions." They each provide "both tongue and cheek and deeply introspective" therapy sessions with internet personalities and friends. Shane's recent popularity on TikTok comes from his popular series of recreating historical events with a modern and comedic twist. He has since accumulated thousands of followers, which led him to start "Therapuss."

With guests like Reneé Rapp and Tate McRae, Shane and his friends have deep conversations about life and fun, non-serious conversations to lighten the mood. Fans are encouraged to directly message Shane about their situations, providing a fun and interactive experience.
