The Best Individual Podcast Episodes To Binge In Quarantine

For a lot of us, podcasts were part of routines the quarantine disrupted—going to the gym, commuting, driving, getting ready for work. That doesn’t mean we should give up on them.

Now that we’re largely confined to our homes, it’s a great time to listen while you cook, work out at home, or do some gardening. Video podcasts can be as engaging as traditional television, so if you’re looking for something to watch after dinner, maybe consider firing up YouTube instead of Netflix.

The Federalist community came up with a list of the most fascinating, hilarious, and thought-provoking podcast episodes recorded in recent years. From comedy to politics to true crime to music, they cover a wide variety of topics.

What each episode listed here has in common is the ability to hold your attention. If that’s something you could use right now, take a look at the options below.
