With innumerable topics, hosts and podcast styles, you can truly find something covering anything of interest.

Conan O’Brien Needs a Friend

If you know and love the famously tall redhead’s late night show, Conan O’Brien’s podcast is for you. With the casually loose conversational flow of friends chatting, but with the interesting tidbits of a Hollywood interview, this show is an easy listen for almost all ages. The teens and adult children interested in comedy and entertainment can easily find a guest that piques their interest. Just download your favorite guests and relax, Conan does all the work.


Root of Evil

A list of podcasts isn’t complete without mention of a true crime number, and Root of Evil is a must for thrill-seekers. Maybe for the older kids, just based on sorted content, Root of Evil is a dark and interesting listen. This podcast, produced by TNT and Cadence13, follows the true story of the Hodel family and the Black Dahlia —  think the I am the Night series with Chris Pine.


Adult Children
