Like Our Accents? You’ll Love Our Podcasts | Southern Podcasts and Podcasters

Untitled design (1)

If you’re new here, my name is Shannon Ballard and I’m the host of Southern Mysteries Podcast. Apart from the kind comments people have shared about the historical mysteries and folklore they’ve heard on Southern Mysteries, I also hear time and time again: “I just love a southern accent!”

I love the accents too! That’s why I like to listen to fellow southern podcasters and support the work they’re doing.

There are so many podcasts and podcasts hosts who are based in the American south or feature a host who is from this region of the United States!

That’s why I wanted to share a growing list of podcasts that feature hosts who have the accents that so many people love AND a diversity of subject matter.

Full disclosure – I am still working my way through this list! When I asked friends on Facebook, Twitter and Instagram to suggest southern podcasts to listen to, the response was overwhelming. Great news for you and me because there’s lots to hear. You may just find a new favorite!

If you are a podcaster who would like to be added to this list, shoot me an email.
