NPR: Life Kit

Readers from virtually all backgrounds and life stages can pick up helpful tips from Life Kit, a unique podcast series from National Public Radio (NPR) that describes itself as a "family of audio guides for navigating your life -- everything from your finances to sleep to exercise to raising your kids." Since its launch in December 2018, Life Kit has created guides on 16 different topics (as of this write-up) that are organized into themes such as Money, Health, and Parenting. Each guide includes several episodes that take listeners through basic as well as more complex questions on that topic. For example, the guide on How to Make Friends opens with an episode on the need to "accept the awkwardness" of making friends in general, while subsequent episodes discuss how to cope with friendships that have changed (or ended) and how the culture of masculinity is "making it hard for [men] to maintain friendships." Episodes are typically about 20-25 minutes long, and readers can subscribe to an individual topic (e.g. Parenting: Difficult Conversations), to all guides within a theme (e.g. all Parenting episodes), or to the entire Life Kit series via their favorite podcast platform.
