Eleven of the Best Stranger Things Podcasts

It’s no secret that the hit show Stranger Things has taken the world by storm. With its combination of sci-fi, mystery, and horror, the show has something for everyone, and has cultivated a massive following over the years.

And now, as most of us have binged Volume One (and having already marked our calendars with big circles on July 7, when Volume Two is set to hit our screens) we’re all on the hunt to find ways to fill the Stranger Things-shaped hole in our lives.

One great way to fill that void is some truly amazing Stranger Things themed podcasts! And we just so happen to have collected Eleven (of course!) of our favorites!

Trust us, these are some of the best! And friends don’t lie! (See what we did there?) But don’t just take our word for it! We’ve also included what other fans of these podcasts are saying, so you’ll have some help picking the ones for you! (AKA, all of them!)*

So buckle up and enjoy!

1. The Stranger Things Podcast

First up, we have The Stranger Things Podcast, brought to us by Golden Spiral Media.

Hosted by Addi and Darrell, The Stranger Things Podcast is a fun and insightful look into the upside down world of Stranger Things. Each episode includes meme of the week, news and rumors, quote of the week, episode discussion, and more.

It’s a really fun, entertaining show, and the snarky chemistry between dad and daughter just takes it to a whole new level!

But remember, you don’t have to take our word for it!

What fans are saying:

“The best Stranger Things podcast ever created! I love this podcast so much. The father daughter duo is great and I love the theories that they say.”

3. Rebel Robin: Surviving Hawkins (A Stranger Things Podcast)

Brought to us by Netflix, the next must-listen Stranger Things podcast is Rebel Robin: Surviving Hawkins. This isn’t a companion or episode discussion podcast. Rather, it’s a fictional show, set in Hawkins, specifically Hawkins High School, and it’s one rad ride!

Just read this…

October, 1983. There’s a monster lurking in Hawkins, Indiana. Chewing people up, spitting them out, changing them in terrible ways. Yet for some reason, everyone is acting like it’s all perfectly normal. Except for Robin Buckley. She alone knows exactly what this monster’s name is: Hawkins High School.

Starring Maya Hawke as Robin and Sean Maher as her favorite teacher, Mr. Hauser, Surviving Hawkins is the podcast companion to the YA novel, Stranger Things: Rebel Robin, by A.R. Capetta.

What fans are saying:

“Great story!!!!!!!!! Every episode is better than the last!!!

4. Perfect Stranger Things

“Very informative, funny and entertaining! I didn’t know I needed another Stranger Things breakdown podcast, but I’m very glad that I do and look forward to seeing every episode.”

5. The Hawkins Report: A Stranger Things Podcast

Entry Number 5 is The Hawkins Report. (Note: This podcast does not cover the new season due to personal circumstances of the hosts. But if you’re looking to catch up on the previous seasons, it’s a great option.)

If you are looking for something different in the TV & Film podcasting genre, something honest and with zero interest in pandering, then turn your ears to The Hawkins Report: A Stranger Things Podcast by LSG Media.

What fans are saying:

“I love this podcast! This podcast is funny and just absolutely perfect. It’s the best Stranger Things podcast you will find!”

“I Dig-Dug this podcast! Simply put, Dean & Jess have good, insightful discussion, often noticing nuances I may have missed all while making me laugh. Be warned though, if you are easily offended by irreverent humor, or are just a dull human being this is not for you.”

6. A Stranger Things Podcast

A Stranger Things Podcast features input from a variety of viewpoints, making for some interesting discussions!

And I just happen to be bringing my teen daughters and a co-host by the name of Crystal along for the ride that is Stranger Things ,to get their perspectives on the show and the decade it’s tapped from.
