In October 2019, Geraghty shared the big news with her followers that she was starting a podcast. Fast forward to now, and she has posted over 20 podcast episodes on Spotify and the Apple Podcast app. Before starting her podcast journey, Geraghty’s creative eye was mainly focused on her successful YouTube channel, now known as “Gretchen Geraghty.” With 347,000 subscribers and counting, she posts videos that range from vlogs, clothing hauls, workouts, and more. Watching Geraghty’s videos can bring a pure rush of serotonin — she is enthusiastic with a contagious smile.

That same passion is carried onto her podcast, “Happy Hour with Gretchen Geraghty”. In the podcast’s Spotify bio, it says: “…you’ll hear an hour of conversation ranging from current favorites, positive thoughts to deep topics…relationships, and being totally open and real.” This is a podcast that just allows you relax for an hour and listen to Geraghty talk about topics that are relatable and intriguing.
Geraghty brings great variety to her podcast and keeps listeners coming back for more and more each week because of the raw and honest conversations she creates.

Geraghty does not hold back from tough topics and it is truly inspiring, as she is creating a safe and warm community for her listeners. She also occasionally brings in her closest friends to speak on the podcast and they always bring great stories and conversation topics.
Another notable aspect of Geraghty’s podcast is how she effortlessly makes her listeners feel like her best friends throughout her episodes. Each week, listeners get to know more and more about Gretchen and a real bond and connection is made because of this. She also does not over edit her podcasts either, as she once said in an episode, “If there’s a yawn, you’re just getting the real me!” By the end of every podcast, listeners likely feel like they had a one-on-one long and deep, yet fun conversation with Gretchen.
Gretchen Geraghty’s podcast is named “Happy Hour” for a reason. If you want a guaranteed hour of happiness and joy each week, make sure to listen to “Happy Hour with Gretchen Geraghty” on Spotify and Apple Podcast.
