The Daily Zeitgeist- This is a fun way to wake up, with a mixture of comedy, internet, politics, and pop culture news, it covers everything. Each day a new guest is brought in by the co-hosts Jack O’Brien and Miles Gray, to share laughs. Though it covers all the big stories, what we love about this podcast is its more offbeat stories. The hosts call themselves a second-rate podcast, but we think it’s one of the best ones.
Today in True Crime- Are you looking for some of the biggest juicy crime stories? Well, your search ends here. Today in true crime brings you illuminating, educational, and surprisingly entertaining crime and justice-related incidents that happened. Some episodes go very far back in time to cover the wide history of crime.

With all the polish and sophistication you expect from the public radio titans, they deliver the latest news in 10-15 minutes. It is the last few minutes of the podcast that make it special, as they focus only on the local news at that time.
Stuff You Should Know- This podcast became so popular that, it spawned its own dedicated network. And it also has similar daily podcasts like Stuff you missed in history class. Though the co-hosts admit to not being experts on everything, the podcasts cover everything under the sun. It might not cover the topics in depth but what it does is inspire curiosity. The podcast gives just enough information to encourage the listeners to dig deeper and learn about stuff everyone should know about.
