Podcast Review: Drinking the Koolaid


The story behind my experience Drinking the Koolaid is that of a lone bright spot in the last year. I had seen DTKA pop up on Instagram when they first launched because they are a fantastically fun follow. As I dove into my Spotify to search start my first listen I started to spell out D-R-I…and the song “Drinking Again” by Frank Sinatra prepopulated. As an avid Sinatra fan who is unfamiliar with the song I hit play without hesitation, and instantly found one of my new favorite songs. Some would consider this manifest destiny. The podcast is one of the best true crime podcasts. 



Frank Sinatra wasn’t the only one having a moment for me in 2020. Drinking the Koolaid instantly became a highlight of my week. One of the main ingredients that stirs this drink is chemistry (applaud for corny joke). But seriously, the reason this podcast works so well is that hosts, Cassidy Liston and Amanda Goodness are also great friends. 

The type of friends you can have a drink with. This is a podcast dedicated to all things mysterious. These two will cover anything from true crime to conspiracies and everything in between, all while packed with a ton of personality. As someone who spent a lot of time inside and social distancing, an episode of Drinking the Koolaid became my own personal happy how with my two new friends. 

As tough of a year as 2020 was, Drinking the Koolaid is having a moment. Since dropping their first episode in May they have quickly grown to over 30 episodes and have only gotten better with time. Drinking the Koolaid is a discussion-based podcast that comes with a strong side of comedy and personality. On any given week you can catch Cassidy and Amanda trying to decipher a 15th-century manuscript or a cult from the 1920s. All in all, if your a fan of true crime and everything in between and love your podcast to have a little personality, then pull up and pour yourself a drink with Cassidy and Amanda every week. They make a top podcast of 2021 and one of our favorites.
