May 31st, 2018 by Jennifer Beile 6 Celebrity Podcasts to Add to Your Queue

I am definitely late to hopping on the podcast train, but since discovering how entertaining they can be, I’ve been hooked. My favorite genre? Celebrity-hosted interview podcasts. Celebrities have free reign to be uncensored in this medium, and the conversation flows into areas that are rarely covered in talk show or magazine interviews.

I’m currently obsessing over these six celebrity-hosted podcasts and count on them to make my commute more bearable!


Armchair Expert, Dax Shepard
Dax Shepard hosts my current favorite podcast, Armchair Expert. Dax sits down with celebrities and has vulnerable, honest conversations that show that challenges ultimately lead to growth. My favorite episode (so far) is absolutely the episode with Shepard’s wife, Kristen Bell. Within the two hours, they bicker, make up, and discuss their marriage and how they balance their careers and family—all while being absolutely adorable and totally #relationshipgoals.


celebrity hosted podcast

Anna Faris is Unqualified, Anna Faris
Anna’s podcast can honestly be a little bit erratic. She often goes into role-playing characters without any notice, she gives (as the title states) unqualified relationship advice to callers, and she plays games with her celebrity guests (like “Dealbreaker” and “Would You Rather”). The end result, albeit totally bizarre, is a totally entertaining podcast that will make your commute much more enjoyable.


Inside of You, Michael Rosenbaum
Actor Michael Rosenbaum, most notable for his role as Lex Luther in Smallville, hosts a no-holds-barred podcast where he invites celebrity friends to his home for in-depth, raw, uncensored conversations. Rosenbaum is charismatic and creates an environment in which his celeb guests feel comfortable enough to let their guard down and open up.


WTF with Marc Maron, Marc Maron
With more than 6 million downloads each month, actor/comedian/writer Marc Maron sets the bar high with his podcast. Currently on its ninth year, WTF consistently provides riveting conversation with iconic personalities; everyone from the elusive Macaulay Culkin to President Barack Obama has sat down with Maron.


Off Camera with Sam Jones, Sam Jones
Okay, Sam Jones isn’t necessarily a household celebrity name, but he is a celebrity photographer and his podcast (which is also a TV series and magazine) feature some of the biggest stars, so I’m making an exception including this podcast. Sam Jones invites celebrities and artists to sit down and talk about everything from their career to their childhood and family. You’ll feel as though you’re right there in the room with two of your closest friends.


Make Speidi Famous Again, Spencer & Heidi Pratt
2018 is the year of a “Speidi” resurrection… Spencer Pratt has a new MTV series on YouTube, one of the most followed and viewed SnapChat accounts, and a highly rated podcast with Heidi. Make Speidi Famous Again focuses on reality show recaps, celebrity gossip, and pop culture cult icon guests like Perez Hilton and the entire cast of Jersey Shore. This podcast will quickly become your guilty pleasure!
