Podcasts have become a ticket item of many music streaming services’ libraries. From online talk shows to current events, there is surely a podcast that is fine tuned to your interests.

With that being said, here are my top three podcasts that I think you will enjoy. Each podcast mentioned is available on Spotify, Apple Music and iHeartRadio.



The “Dissect” podcast is a Spotify curated podcast created by a music lover, for music lovers. Hosted by the soothing voice of Cole Cuchna, “Dissect” takes the listener on a critically thought out journey across many acclaimed albums.

Each season focuses on an artist and an album in their discography. Some of these albums include “Flower Boy” by Tyler The Creator and “DAMN” by Kendrick Lamar.

Cuchna “dissects” each song on the album, carefully picking apart every line and word sung in the track. Cuchna also implements music theory, helping listeners find hidden meaning within many songs that the regular listener may have not noticed.

If you enjoy listening to hip-hop and R&B, you will love “Dissect.”

“Dissect” is available on Spotify and Apple Podcasts.

TED Talks Daily

Ted Talks Daily

“TED Talks Daily” is a fun and educational podcast for people who love learning new things.

Our professors love to use “TED Talks” in our lectures, and in my opinion, they can often be interesting. “TED Talks Daily” has a huge library of hundreds of professional lectures, all served on a bite sized platter.

Ranging from inspirational speeches to thought provoking answered questions, “TED Talks Daily” is a must listen for anybody who wants to expand their knowledge of the world around them.

“TED Talks Daily” is available on Spotify, Apple Music and iHeartRadio.
