Each episode usually starts fairly formal before slowly becoming more frantic with the conversation going in a multitude of different directions, making for a hilarious show that really makes you feel like you’re in a bar with a bunch of buddies kicking back with a drink in hand.
Megan Batoon leads this quirky and insightful podcast that is entirely centered around weighing in on questions from the audience and giving a ‘Tip’ to overcome any obstacles the listeners may be experiencing in their lives.
These pieces of advice can usually range from light hearted and banterous to surprisingly deep and serious, making for a podcast that is not only fresh with each and every episode, but also great for throwing on when you don’t have a particular mood and want something that can change in tone.
While we can often think of Youtube just as the platform where we can find quick tutorial videos or music videos, there are a whole range of podcasts such as these to try out now and see if any become one of your new favorites to listen to.
