Had the chance to make a couple trips to Sugarloaf Mountain recently, once with Brendan and another with Kristen. As always, the days were packed with adventure, beautiful views, great company, good conversations, and awesome music.
I'd like to take a moment to thank my lovely best friend Kristen for bettering my life tremendously by introducing me to mister Jon Bellion. If you love 21 Pilots, get ready to find your newest music obsession. With a great message and refreshing sound, Jon Bellion changes your music world with his newest album, The Human Condition, on iTunes now. (He also has a couple extra older albums on spotify you can find and obsess over.)
Listed below is a little selection of songs that are my personal favorites! And if you click the hyperlink above you can be directed to Jon Bellion's website with his tour date list and links to tickets, just in case. ;) I'll be seeing him November 21st at The Fillmore in Silver Spring, Maryland.
Podcasts, the hidden gem on your phone that you swipe past every day. It holds some pretty amazing content, and you need to unlock that potential to better your life immediately. On a walk, during your trip at the grocery store, or while you drive home from work, listen to one of these awesome podcasts. Or, now.
Here are my top 5 favorites:
An all time favorite of mine. Brilliant storyteller, Aaron Mahnke, takes you on a whirlwind of whimsical, historical, wonder filled, and sometimes terrifying accounts of folklore. While he may be talking about things as far fetched as fairies, vampires, and trolls, his podcasts are fact filled and backed up by history. Lore is quite fascinating and Aaron Mahnke will always leave you with a new bit of wonder to feel about the world you know little about.
2) Mystery Show
Miss Starlee Kine is your modern day Sherlock in Mystery Show. Very witty, a great conversationalist, and extremely inquisitive, Starlee solves the mystery's the internet can't. How tall is Jake Gyllenhaal? Where did a New York video store disappear to in the middle of the night? Did Britney Spears really read an unknown starving writers book? Mystery Show is the perfect light hearted podcast to brighten your day.
A top charting and award winning podcast that has run for two season now. Serial takes on the 1999 murder of a Baltimore teen and a military desertion case of Sgt. Bowe Bergdahl. Producer Sarah Koenig entrances you with curiosity, you'll be hooked from the first episode.
4) My Favorite Murder
Karen and Georgia discuss their absolute favorite murder cases. With passion and humor, they share their love for murder stories. I am just now getting into this podcast but my sister Renee says it's a must listen to series.
Another new one for me, Gretchen Rubin explores podcasting after already having three of her books on The New York Times best seller list. She knows a little bit about being happy and wants to share her helpful tips on how to easily make your life just that little extra happier.
