Want to learn more about your favorite topics? These podcasts are a great way to do so!

These five podcasts are a great way to learn more about niche topics. Whether you are discovering a new topic for the first time, or you want to learn more about specific subjects, these podcasts offer a wide range of variety to choose from, each contributing insightful information to specific matters.

1. “I Spent a Day with…” – Anthony Padilla

This podcast gives insight into how people with different backgrounds live their everyday lives. The host and former Smosh member, Anthony Padilla, interviews popular YouTubers, musicians, people with interesting occupations, or people with unique hobbies. The interviews bring awareness to new walks of life that not everyone is familiar with. Some of the most notable people that he has had on his podcast include Rhett and Link, Michael from Vsauce, the man behind Daily Dose of Internet, and Howie Mandel.

2. “How I Built This” – Guy Raz

Guy Raz, the host of the “How I Built This” podcast, interviews notable business owners to understand their upbringing and how success was brought to their company. Business owners from Michael Kors, Chipotle, Tinder, and Tarte Cosmetics have all been featured in episodes, explaining how they built their businesses and the steps to keep the success years later. This podcast is great for those interested in pursuing their own company, as it offers beneficial advice for small start-ups.

3. “Ted Talks Daily” 

“Ted Talks Daily” offers a new podcast to its listeners each weekday, containing a unique perspective on informational matters. This podcast explores topics like political change, artificial intelligence, social media, environmental protection, etc. Ted Talks, which started from visual YouTube videos, has now been turned into audio versions for listeners to take their listening on the go. Each topic is spoken about by a professional in the field, educating their audience on helpful advice and interesting takes on a matter.

4. “Twenty Thousand Hertz” – Dallas Taylor

This podcast dives into the history behind all different kinds of sounds. A seemingly boring topic is made very interesting by the host, Dallas Taylor. The stories behind the world’s most recognizable and interesting sounds are revealed in episodes that are posted every other week. Some of the sounds that are broken down in his episodes includes the Netflix intro, the Wilhelm scream, insurance jingles, Siri, and deep fakes. The ordinary noises we hear constantly are often overlooked, so this podcast is a great way to learn more about the sounds in our everyday lives.

5. “Sidenote” – AsapScience 

The “Sidenote” podcast is hosted by the popular YouTubers from AsapScience, Mitchell Moffit and Gregory Brown. Each week, new episodes are released that dive into the science behind popular, yet controversial topics. Obscure subjects like personality tests, electrolytes, white noise machines, video games, alcohol consumption, and gas stoves are only a few of the many subjects that this podcast talks about. The things people take for granted every day are observed and studied by the hosts, with interesting and insightful conversations being held afterward.
