Each year it seems as though we grow closer and closer to our favorite celebrities. While the Hollywood elite used to be deemed untouchable and distant, social media and podcasting have assisted with closing that gap. One of the best parts of having an abundance of celebrities with their own podcasts is the fact that they often bring on fellow A-listers as guests, giving listeners the opportunity to learn from and connect with the stars that inspire them. Considering there are hundreds of podcasts featuring celebrity guests out there, having access to platforms like Vurbl Audio allows listeners to find their favorite shows in no time. Check out this diverse list of podcasts that have hosted some of your favorite celebrity guests, below.
For those in need of some relationship talk with a side of laughs, “Unqualified” might be the perfect podcast for you. The podcast takes a unique and humorous approach to the realm of dating tips and tricks by providing listeners with the opportunity to receive some great (and not so great) dating advice from various Hollywood celebs. While some episodes offer genuine insight that listeners might find helpful, the true mission of Unqualified is to highlight the fact that at the end of the day none of us really know what we’re doing when it comes to dating … even the Hollywood Elite.
Host: Actress and comedian Anna Faris hosts the hilariously honest podcast. Though Faris started the podcast in 2015, her divorce from husband Chris Pratt in 2018 gave the podcast a new perspective as she began to navigate life as a single gal. It appears as though some advice given during the podcast came in handy for Anna, who is now engaged to her new man.
Guests: Considering Anna is a funny girl herself, it is no wonder that her podcast would welcome some of Hollywood’s biggest names in comedy. Unqualified has welcomed the likes of Whitney Cummings, Justin Long, Busy Philipps, and many more.

If you’re a glutton for raunchy and filterless comedy, then “Amy Schumer Presents: 3 Girls, 1 Keith” might be your newest guilty pleasure.

While “Armchair Expert” has become a fan-favorite among parents, its audience is diverse and provides a niche for anyone interested in psychology, sociology and mental health.
