Heather Hartman, Digital Content Specialist at Coastal Pet Products


“Hands down, my favorite podcast to listen to is Crime Junkies with Ashley Flowers and Brit Prawat. I love true crime, but I hate when the stories are over-dramatized. Ashley and Brit are great at storytelling, so I’m completely drawn in during each weekly episode. I’m able to pop my headphones in and feel like I’m sitting down listening to a friend tell me about this crazy crime they’ve just learned about. Added bonus to the Crime Junkie podcast: Pruppet of the Month, a heartwarming feature of fan’s dogs. You’ll laugh, you’ll cry, you’ll learn how to stay alive.”

Christy Wood, VP of Marketing at Seattle Symphony

You Must Remember This by Karina Longworth – During my first two years of college I lived with my grandparents, and I spent many a Saturday morning watching old movies with my grandmother — The Divorce of Lady X, Wuthering Heights, Stage Door. Being able to listen as Karina dives into the behind-the-screens scandals makes me feel close to my grandmother. She loved the scandals and the scoundrels.

Reading Women – I’m a prolific reader who spends too much time in her car! This podcast acts like a book club that has no meetings or reading deadlines, and it introduces me to new works by women authors I might not have discovered on my own.”
