6 Advice Podcasts to Help You Be an Adult

Podcasts serve a bunch of different purposes, from helping us get our health on track to podcasts for kids, but they can also be a great place to turn if you need some expert advice. When you’re stuck in a sticky situation, whether it’s career advice you need or you’ve got a relationship predicament, these podcasts should be your new go-to. Just call or email, fill them in on your situation, and they’ll become your on-demand best friend/therapist. And if you’re too shy to call in yourself, just keep listening: Chances are someone in the world has had a similar problem and you’ll hear the advice you need sooner or later.


1. SadSoul Advice Club: An advice podcast for sad souls and not-so-sad souls alike, this podcast covers everything from ghosts to dating problems to “whether or not your cat will miss you while you’re away at college.”

2. Dear Sugar: The queen of advice, Cheryl Strayed hosts this podcast with Steve Almond, a spinoff from her Dear Sugar advice column. Anyone who’s read Wild (or anything else she’s written) knows how essential her advice will be.

3. Ask Amy: Naturally, NPR produces a lot of pretty great podcasts, and Ask Amy definitely counts as one of them. Each episode covers a particular theme, from wedding etiquette to pet peeves, and Amy weighs in expertly.

4. Plz Advise: Hosted by the hilarious Molly MacAleer and featuring a new, equally hilarious guest each week, this is a podcast dedicated entirely to solving your problems. Guests call in with a variety of problems, and Molly always gives it to them straight.

5. Nice Advice: Okay, so this one is more of a spoof on advice columns than a real advice podcast. Stand up comic Chuck Nice analyzes advice columns, explains why they’re wrong, and then offers his own (hilarious) advice.

6. Anna Faris Is Unqualified: Anna Faris is “a solid 3.4 student with a major in English from the University of Washington,” so she’s totally qualified to give you life advice, right?
