My Favorite Murder

My Favorite Murder Podcast

SSDGM! This true crime/comedy podcast has a cult (call your dad!) following, and for good reason. Karen and Georgia release 2 weekly episodes covering some of the most notorious (and some not so well-known) true crime cases, but do it all with a sense of humor.

Watch What Crappens

Watch What Crappens Podcast

We are huge Bravo-heads (is that a thing?) over here at Bijou, and part of the fun of watching these shows is the follow up on the Watch What Crappens podcast. For pretty much every show on Bravo, from Vanderpump to Top Chef, Ben and Ronnie praise, eviscerate and ridicule all the crap Bravo throws at us. This show is like going to brunch with your best Judys to talk sh*t about all things Bravo.

Bitch Sesh

Bitch Sesh Podcast

For more Bravo (and sometimes other shows like 90 Day Fiancé get the spotlight), we recommend Bitch Sesh with Casey Wilson and Danielle Schneider. You may know Casey Wilson from one of the best sitcoms ever, Happy Endings, or from WRITING BRIDE WARS how fun is that. On Bitch Sesh, she and fellow comedian Danielle break down all your fave Bravo shows. They bring on other comedian guests, do live shows in costume (Andy Cohen himself showed up to the last one!) and are just all around a great time.

Lovett or Leave It

Lovett or Leave It Podcast

Every week, former Obama speechwriter and all around hilarious guy Jon Lovett (fun fact: he's also engaged to Ronan Farrow) welcomes a panel of comedians, actors, journalists and more to appear in front of a live audience to break down the weeks biggest news and make fun of whatever sh*t is happening in politics. There's games, impressions, rant wheels and more!

Keep It

Keep It Podcast

Each week on Keep It, Ira Madison III, Louis Virtel, and Aida Osman are joined by comedians, journalists, actors, musicians, activists, politicians and more to discuss the latest ways pop culture and entertainment are intersecting with politics and society. We particularly like Keep It because if the hosts' indisputable pop culture knowledge, it just goes so deep.

Gaslit Nation

Gaslit Nation Podcast

If you want to get gassed up (pun intended) we recommend Gaslit Nation. This show is hosted by Sarah Kendzior and Andrea Chalupa, who are experts on authoritarian states who warned America about election hacking years before 2016. Here, they take a deep dive on the news, skipping outrage to deliver analysis, history, context, and sharp insight on global affairs. Our friend Julia recommended this podcast to us, and now every time we listen we end up rage texting her for hours. Sorry Julia!
