If you’re like us and could use a bit of a break, here are 10 Canadian podcasts that we think you should check out in 2021!

True crime meets comedy on the This Sounds Serious podcast. With millions of regular listeners, it’s fair to say that they’ve really perfected the art of pallet cleansing – something that we’ve found is pretty important if your deep into the dark and factual. Check it out!
In short, the Steven Dangle Podcast is basically just three dudes, talking about sports and pop culture – but we wouldn’t have it any other way. It’s incredibly easy to listen to, not only because it’s informative but because it’s funny and relatable and there are a TON of episodes.

Pour yourself a drink and enjoy real conversations had by real people, that will somehow make you feel both less alone and better about yourself.
Okay, kids. One more! Starship Coconut is an unreal podcast, unlike anything we’ve heard elsewhere. This “comedic audio experience” is basically the adult’s answer to the Saturday morning cartoon.
