10 Best Podcasts About Relationships

The first time I discovered podcasts were back in 2015 when I discovered a YouTube channel called 'Sourcefed.' Not only were their audio podcasts featured on iTunes but they always uploaded the video on their channel; this was gold for me!

Ever since then, I have been a huge fan of podcasts. No matter what genre you're a fan of — mystery, comedy, true crime, and pretty much every other subject you can think of —  there seems to be a podcast for everything.

In particular, the collection of relationship podcasts is a gold mine. From funny stories to true relationship advice, the best podcasts about relationships have it all. 

Maybe you are looking for sex advice or you just want to feel like your relationship problems aren't out of the ordinary. Chances are there is something out there for everyone!

With that being said, for those who are looking for advice on how to improve your relationship or even those who just like hearing the tea on other relationships, podcasts are the easiest way to give you the answers you are looking for. 

Here are some of the best podcasts about relationships to get you started.
