Five (Girly) Podcasts I’m Loving

Turn away, all you men! This post is not for you. I have many more podcasts that will appeal to a broader crowd (future post??).  This post is for the laaaadies!  SO, most of you probably don’t know this, but I do a TON of driving.  I’m basically like a trucker.  Especially with all of the fast food I eat.  I commute to my base where I start my trips, and it’s a 3 1/2 hour drive one-way.  How do I not go crazy?  I listen to podcasts.  Plus gangsta rap if I’m having a particularly difficult day.

Podcasts are nice because you can download them and listen off of your phone while you drive, fly, exercise, etc. I subscribe to quite a few podcasts, but these are a few of my favorites.

#1 Call Your Girlfriend


Call Your Girlfriend is a podcast for long-distance besties everywhere co-hosted by Aminatou Sow and Ann Friedman, and produced by Gina Delvac. Every week, Aminatou and Ann call each other to discuss the intricacies of pop culture and the latest in politics.  They highlight women who are agents, creators, movers, and shakers who have smart, interesting things to say.  They also care deeply about the lived experiences of non-famous women who are just trying to get through the week. They’re there for every facet of women’s humanity.

#2 Forever35


Kate and Doree are two friends who love to text each other about serums. On Forever35, they talk about sheet masks, serums, exercise, nutrition, meditation, anxiety and stress, Kate’s favorite drugstore mascara, Doree’s addiction to restorative yoga, and much more. And explore how it all takes on new meaning as they age. Plus, each episode features an amazing guest talking about their own self-care routines, plus tips, product recommendations, advice, experiments, and most importantly: LOLS!

#3 The Skinny Confidential 


The Skinny Confidential Him & Her Show is hosted by entrepreneurs and brand builders Lauryn Evarts Bosstick and Michael Bosstick.  On this show you’ll find a mix of audio entertainment including interviews with celebrities, entrepreneurs, influencers, experts, and thought leaders.  You will also hear listener and audience questions on health, wellness, business, branding, marketing, and relationships.

#4 We’re No Doctors


Meet Steve Agee and Busy Phillips, two neurotic, hypochondriac actors who’ve decided to host a podcast about health and medicine. Join them on a weekly journey to unload their health issues, obsessions and opinions.

#5 Sex with Emily

I’m in the Mood for Love…

IMG_3400Happy Valentine’s Day, everyone!  Thoughts on Valentine’s Day?  Too commercial?  Too cheesy? Or do you LOVE it?  I think it’s a fun day and I’ve always enjoyed it, but I’m not one of those girls that expects a romantic steak dinner (although, that does sound nice) and a bouquet of long stemmed red roses (well gosh, that sounds lovely as well… maybe I am that girl??).  Do you have any favorite Valentine’s Day memories?  Most of my memories are from when I was a kid.  I remember scratch-and-sniff Valentines my mom would order every year for me to hand out at school.  I remember making a gigantic Titanic Valentine’s Day box one year (it won first place in the contest, by the way.  Ahem).  I remember one year my dad giving me a geode as a present and my mind was blown.  I was that kid that had a huge rock collection.  Should’ve became a geologist.

Are you doing anything special today with your loved ones?  My suggestion is to watch a movie and order in some Chinese.  Or Thai.  Or ramen/sushi.  Or phó.  As far as movies go… Continue reading “I’m in the Mood for Love…”

Welcome to Wanderlust Pig

Well, this is my official post welcoming you to my new blog, Wanderlust Pig.  I guess this should’ve been the first blog post I wrote, but it wasn’t.  I think I was too excited, hit the ground running and started posting as soon as I created the website.  No intro post necessary!  Soo, backstory… grab a snack, settle in, I’ll try not to be too long winded.  But seriously, get a snack.  I’m thinking cookies and coffee.
