In case you weren’t aware, podcasts are a thing. In fact, some podcasts can boast about having more listeners and followers than many television shows have viewers these days. The categories of podcasts run the gamut too. From true crime and interview-style shows to podcasts all about pop culture and food. My favorite category to pass the time stuck in traffic, waiting on line, and while cleaning the house is by far comedy podcasts.
Besides true crime, comedy podcasts are one of the largest and most popular podcast categories. That makes sense too--people love tragedy and drama, but they also love to laugh.
If you are new to podcast listening--don’t worry, it’s easy as pie. Simply open a podcast app on your Android or Apple device and listen away. Both platforms come with built-in podcast apps, but there are others out there once you’ve gotten the hang of listening and following podcasts.
And whether your humor tends toward the bizarre, the surreal, the raunchy, or the silly, there is a podcast for you. Here are just some of the latest comedy podcasts that are topping the charts.
