In Your 20's "Anything Goes" with Emma Chamberlain: This podcast can switch from philosophy to advice to just completely random which is one thing I love about it. I seem to always leave her podcasts with nuggets of information or quotes that I hold onto and think back on regularly. With Emma's podcast, I have found it most effective if you don't just click on one of her recent ones but really search for a topic that you might be struggling with or are very interested in. She really makes me think and challenges me and I am genuinely impressed with her knowledge and maturity for a 21 year old.

Wise Words for your 20's "The Psychology of Your 20's": Jemma Sbeg, from Sydney, Australia, speaks on how everything is psychology and relates it to every feeling and stage of life you could go through in your 20s. She is wonderful and so insightful.
