Our Guest Editor for January, Jessica Murnane, is known (and loved) for her engaging podcast called the One Part Podcast, which offers honest and inspiring conversations on wellness, career, food and more. Today, we’ve turned the tables and asked Jessica to share the podcast series she tunes into on a regular basis. 

I listen to a lot of podcasts. A LOT. I have so many favorites, but just because one is my favorite doesn’t mean I’m always in the mood for it. I have a lot of moods. (Read: I'm moody.)

Sometimes I’m looking for inspiration, sometimes I want to chill, sometimes I need a good kick in the ass, and sometimes I just need a friend who makes me laugh. 

I’ve rounded up some of my favorites for a bunch of my different moods. Dive in, and then please share YOUR favorites and make sure to include the the appropriate listening mood, too!
