The world may be an unpredictable place right now as we enter the second year of the coronavirus pandemic, but do you know what will always be there for you no matter what? Podcasts!

Whether you’re trying to get through a long journey, seeking some motivational help or just fed up of listening to your music, podcasts have you covered.

We may only be one month into 2022, yet that doesn’t mean that there is a shortage of podcasts to choose from.

With that said, what are the top 5 podcasts to listen to this February.

1.’Diet Starts Tomorrow’

This podcast covers all things health, fitness, wellbeing and weight loss, but not in the yawning way you would expect.

In a world where wellness looks perfect on Instagram but feels anything but in real life, this podcast explores the psychological side of health as a whole.

Co-hosts Aleen Dreskler and Sami Sage get into the emotional side of health, and their energy really does rub off on you!

2. ‘American Radical’

On January 6th, 2021, a mob consisting of roughly 2,500 pro-Trump supporters attacked The White House in Washington D.C after Joe Biden won the election.

Protestors hoped to overturn Trump’s defeat.

A shy introvert, Rosanne Boyland, was present that day.

How does someone uninterested in politics end up getting killed at the Capitol while pushing through police during an insurrection?

Well, this podcast tries to answer that question.

Rosanne’s family retraces the last six months of her life, including the dangerous internet rabbit holes she went down.

3. ‘U Up?’

Struggling with the concept of modern-day dating?

This podcast will be a game changer for any modern dater out there, seriously.

Stand-up comedian Jared Freid and Betches co-founder Jordana Abraham deal out all of the (sometimes necessarily harsh) dating advice you need to thrive in the wild world of dating apps, situationships, and late night “u up?” texts.

Their awkward sex and red flag or deal breaker segments will have you in hysterics, so if you’re listening to this in public, you have been warned!

4. ‘Boys Like Me’

When Evan Mead heard about a man who drove a van down a busy Toronto sidewalk and killed 11 people, he had a shocking realization: the drive was his old high school classmate.

Both of them were outcasts in school however they undertook extremely different paths in life.

This five-part series dives into the violent, misogynistic radicalization of men in the “incel” community and what exactly draws them in and causes them to act in such ways.

It is both fascinating and terrifying at the same time.

5. ‘What Happened To…?’

If you’re a person who is always wondering “whatever happened to the woman from that thing?” well, wonder no more!

Because this podcast is way ahead of you.

It gives updates on all of the obscure pop culture things you probably haven’t thought about in a very, very long time such as the Ice Bucket Challenge or even murder hornets.
