7 Best Podcasts of 2017
Check out some of the top podcasts from this year

With the accessibility of streaming and unlimited data, podcasts are becoming more and more popular. They offer variety of topics, from politics and in-depth discussions to storytelling and fictional episodes. As the year comes to a close, here are seven podcasts from 2017 worth mentioning.

“Making Oprah”

Oprah Winfrey is a household name across the United States and even across other parts of the world. “Making Oprah” is a podcast that dives into the cultural phenomenon that the talk show host created with her hit television show. If you were a fan of “Oprah,” you’ll feel nostalgic listening to the flashbacks of her most memorable episodes. But even if you weren’t an avid viewer, the podcast puts a microscope on the effects the show and Oprah had on media as we know it today.


Focused on the difficult occupation of journalism, “Reveal” is hosted by Al Letson, discussing relevant subjects in our political landscape, from the foster care system to the current presidential administration. Promoting positive and professional journalism, the podcast is produced by members of the Center for Investigative Reporting.


“Homecoming” is different than your traditional podcast; similar to a television show, each episode tells a fictional story. Unlike most drama television shows, “Homecoming” has a run-time of about 30 minutes, making it much easier to fit into your daily life. The show is a psychological thriller with an impressive cast, including “Strangers with Candy” actress Amy Sedaris and “Friends” star David Schwimmer.

“The Hilarious World of Depression”

Comedians bring a lot of light into an often dark world. In an effort to learn more about the lives of these comedians, John Moe interviews the likes of Andy Richter and Sam Grittner in “The Hilarious World of Depression.” The show aims to understand the struggles of mental illnesses and decrease the stigmas surrounding them. These podcasts are enticing for those interested in or struggling with mental illness or simply fans of the comedians being interviewed.

“Beautiful Stories from Anonymous People”

Everyone has a story to tell. No two lives are identical and “Beautiful Stories from Anonymous People” lets anonymous callers tell their stories. The show is hosted by comedian Chris Gethard and callers phone in to the show to tell a story that’s on their mind. But there’s one rule: Chris can’t hang up first, no matter how long or strange the stories are. The tales can be entertaining, hilarious, heart-wrenching or eye-opening; every story is different.

“Successful Dropout Podcast”

In the business world, having a college degree is often seen as a staple. “Successful Dropout Podcast” features young, successful people proving that education is specific to the individual. These individuals, without a college degree, are making money and finding success all over the world. The podcast promotes individuality and helps young people understand that the path they choose is their own.

Podcasts are new and fun forms of entertainment that are only growing in popularity. If you’re interested in jumping on the bandwagon, start with this list of the year’s top podcasts.
