As summer winds down, we begin to prepare for fall nights snuggled up on the couch. The problem? With quarantine, some of us (all right, most of us) have been binging shows and watching movies on streaming services. It’s a great time to give our eyes a break, and instead expand our podcast repertoires. Grab a cup of tea, get comfy under the covers, and start one of these great podcasts that we suggest!

With the upcoming election, listen to The Ticket to get to know the people and the politicians who make the news.

If you are looking to add a little excitement to your downtime, Limetown is the perfect cure to your at-home boredom. In this fictional town, all the residents disappear, leading to a spooky and thrilling story.

Another great guilty pleasure is My Favorite Murder with Karen Kilgariff and Georgia Hardstark, discussing true crime with a side of humor and debauchery. This podcast might give you chills, but Kilgariff and Hardstark will warm you right back up again with their laughter and jokes.

Armchair Expert with Dax Shepard celebrates the messiness of being human and revels at the way that everyone makes mistakes. With famous guests like Colin Jost and Ellen Pompeo it is almost impossible to get tired of this podcast.

If you like a mix of entertainment and education, we recommend Stuff You Should Know. This podcast explains everyday things that are intriguing. Do you drink champagne? Do you sneeze? Then you should listen to this podcast to learn more about these seemingly mundane things that are actually spectacular.

What are you planning on listening to as the cooler weather makes its way in and the leaves start to change in our quarantine-Pinterest-board-inspired-decorative-pillows-and-string-lights backyards?
