I recently discovered something revolutionary that everyone else discovered about six years ago: podcasts.
There are so many podcasts out there I thought I’d share some of my favourites with you in case you’re looking to add new podcasts to your list or, like me, you’re late to the podcast party and looking for one to get you in.
Without further ado, here are some of the podcasts I’m loving right now:
At Home With….
Bloggers/vloggers Lily and Anna – who are currently working on season two of this podcast – interview a range of creative professionals and influencers about everything from their interior design choices to creating a business and climbing the career ladder to mental health and how they unwind.
RuPaul: What’s the Tee?
I discovered this podcast after watching RuPaul’s Drag Race on Netflix. Iconic queen RuPaul and Michelle Visage – a fellow judge on his show – discuss pop culture and give incredibly good life advice, occasionally with celebrity guests. I can guarantee this podcast will boost your confidence, inspire you and have you laughing out loud. What more could you want?
This is such a sweet podcast. Journalist and author of the Sunday Times Bestseller Everything I Know About Love, Dolly Alderton discusses the highs and lows of love with well-known guests, complete with hilarious first date stories and awkward proposal anecdotes.
BBC’s Unpopped analyses today’s elements of pop culture, and it’s absolutely fascinating – it’s one of those podcasts that teaches you so much with each episode with a fantastically honest narrative. I particularly like it because every episode’s guests are incredibly well thought out and complement one another – each contributes a completely different perspective to the discussion.
My Favourite Murder
Two blunt and hilarious Americans, Karen Kilgariff and Georgia Hardstark read out tales of true crime and mysterious coincidences that have been experienced by viewers, or well-known cases that they’ve researched themselves, and find a way to dissect them that is extremely respectful and tasteful whilst adding in their own hilarious quick-witted comments throughout. This is the kind of podcast that has you feeling every emotion, and I would recommend it to everyone.
The High Low
This podcast is so charming in that it’s not dissimilar to catching up with friends. Dolly Alderton and fellow journalist Pandora Sykes discuss a range of topics unlike any other podcast I’ve found yet. On her blog, Pandora describes The High Low as ‘an amalgamation of water-cooler gossip and hard-hitting cultural happenings’, as it ‘covers both the trivial and the political, from errant chin hair to Trumpian politics’.
I hope you enjoy listening to a couple of these podcasts- let me know what you think!
