Podcasts You Should Be Listening To

Published

Think about all the times throughout the day that you listen to music. Whether you are listening to the radio while on your morning Starbucks run, getting your daily workout in, or browsing the aisles at the grocery store, there’s always music playing in the background.

But let’s be real. Some songs are just way too overplayed. Seriously, how many times a day can you listen to “The Middle” without going crazy. That’s why podcasts are a refreshing substitute for the radio or those Spotify playlists that always seem to be on a loop.

GIPHY

Podcasts are essentially pre-recorded talk shows that you can listen to on your phone, or just about any device these days. The best part about podcasts is that they can be extremely informative and entertaining at the same time! If you have an interest or passion, there is definitely a podcast for it.

During a time where we need an escape from the woes of the daily news and crummy music that has taken over the airwaves, podcasts are a fantastic option. We’ve compiled some of our favorites that you’ll be sure to love just as much as we do!

4 On-Screen Couples Who Should Be Together IRL

Published

on

YouTube

We all have that favorite on-screen couple that we are just obsessed with. Many of us become emotionally attached to these relationships, and when they experience ups and downs (like we all do), we feel what they feel. They even help us romanticize our own relationships. Often, they seem like people we wouldn’t mind going on double dates with.

GIPHY

Some actors and actresses have undeniable on-screen chemistry, making these relationships seem legitimate. We’ve compiled a list of on-screen couples who should be together in real life. Let’s hop right in!

GIPHY

Jim and Pam Halpert

Vulture

Jim and Pam Halpert stole the hearts of Americans on NBC’s hit sitcom, The Office. The Halperts are played by John Krasinski and Jenna Fischer respectively. The two’s on screen chemistry was apparent from the very beginning of the series, despite Pam being engaged to someone else. Fans were ecstatic when the pair finally got together in Season 4. The couple went on to get married and have two children, CeCe and Phillip. In real life, Krasinski is married to actress Emily Blunt, and Fischer is married to Lee Kirk. They have remained good pals since the show ended in March of 2013.

Chandler and Monica Bing

NBCU Photo Bank

Chandler and Monica Bing are from one of NBC’s and America’s most beloved and iconic TV shows: Friends. The Bings are played by Matthew Perry and Courteney Cox. This relationship is one of the best examples of falling for your brother’s best friend. Monica’s brother Ross is one of Chandler’s best friends. Throughout the series, Monica and Chandler were always flirtatious and had a close friendship. The pair got together in season five of the series. They went on to adopt twins, Erica and Jack. We love them so much!

Jackson and Ally Maine

Nikki Swift

The 2018 production, A Star is Born, is going to go down as an American musical classic. The movie stars Bradley Cooper along with Lady Gaga. The two play Jackson Maine, a rock star battling addiction, and Ally, a rising musical sensation. The two fall in love and as Ally’s career takes off, Jackson’s addiction worsens. However, Cooper and Gaga’s on-screen chemistry was so insane, fans were convinced that the two were actually in love. Ally’s loyalty to Jackson throughout the film is so admirable, we should all aspire to be like that in our own relationships! Not to mention, the soundtrack is amazing.

Marshall and Lily Eriksen

The Odyssey Online

Marshall and Lily Eriksen from How I Met Your Mother were played by Jason Segel and Alyson Hannigan. “Marshmallow and Lily-pad” met in their college days and were together ever since. In the beginning of the series, the two had just gotten engaged. By the end, they already had a few kids. Regardless, the pair were incredibly, goofy and down to earth. Segel and Hannian’s dynamic on screen was incredible. In real life, Segel is actually a bachelor and stays quiet about his relationships. Hannigan is happily married to Alexis Denisof.
