Top Ten Tuesday


Top Ten Tuesday is a weekly meme by The Artsy Reader. This week’s topic is an Audio Freebie. Honestly, I don’t listen to audiobooks very often (mostly because I haven’t found a platform that I’m happy with) but I do listen to podcasts a lot.

  1. Becoming by Michelle Obama – This is the only audio book I’ve every listened to. Becoming is a poignant history of Michelle Obama, and it is enriched by having Michelle herself narrate it. I would highly, highly recommend this.
  2. The Dream Podcast – This is a short series podcast all about multilevel marketing schemes and their impact. It’s fascinating and well researched with some great interviews.
  3. Serial Podcast – This is like the original true crime podcast. I would highly recommend the first season.
  4. David Tennant Does a Podcast With … – Every week David Tennant sits down with a different person and has an hour long conversation with them. It’s a simple concept, and the episodes released so far have been great.
  5. My Brother, My Brother and Me Podcast – MBMBAM is comedy podcast hosted my three brothers who give out comically bad advice. It’s fantastic.

  1. I’ve never done audiobooks, except listening to a few excerpts from the Harry Potter ones when someone at work was listening to them. It has never really felt like “reading” to me. I used to listen to several podcasts, but don’t have the time to do so much anymore.

  2. Most of the podcasts I’ve listened to have either been news podcasts or in Spanish. I haven’t listened to many audiobooks… yet. There’s always a long wait at the library.
