Podcasts are a great way to consume content. In these weird Coronavirus times, they’ve become even more valuable and offer another way to keep us feeling connected. Whether you listen to escape, learn or be entertained, we’ve rounded up our favourite podcasts!
From true crime to business news and comedy, there’s something to appeal to everyone! Happy listening!
I know I should listen to business podcasts, but I feel like I do so much reading and researching online at work, that when I’m listening to a podcast, I just want to be entertained. I gravitate towards UK comedy podcasts, or podcasts presented by comedians. I miss UK humour and think I just like listening to voices from home! I’m loving the Ed Gamble and Matthew Crosby radio X podcast. Fun and irreverent and always makes me actually laugh out loud. Ed Gamble also teams up with James Acaster on Off Menu, where guests are asked to create their dream 3-course meal. Listen to the latest one with Joe Thomas from the Inbetweeners, he’s a hoot.
There are other podcasts I dip in and out of depending on my mood and general mental health. I lost my brother when I was 22, and this is something I still deal with / struggle with daily. If I’m feeling particularly stuck in a bad thought pattern or feeling really down, I often pick a random episode of Griefcast. Cariad Lloyd interviews comedians about their own loss and grief, and it’s strangely comforting and uplifting.
Adam Buxton is my OG podcaster. I love his voice, his humour and his style of interviewing. He always has interesting and entertaining guests and I just love his style.
I am a podcast addict and consumer so many! I love RadioLab as they break down so many different topics in interesting ways. How I Built This with Guy Raz gives a cool peek behind the curtain and explains how some of the largest businesses came to be. I’m an American living in Perth, so I like to listen to The Daily by the New York Times to keep abreast of the news back home.
Perpetual Traffic is another really interesting podcast by the team at Digital Marketer. I always learn something new and get inspiration for my Facebook Ads campaigns! And to relax and be entertained, I’m whizzing through Mogul, which shares stories from the world of hip hop.
I love anything true crime, so my favourite podcast is an American one called Sword and Scale. Each episode outlines a new true crime, retelling the events and what happened, with the real police calls, recordings, witness statements, and sometimes even the victim’s family and friends being interviewed.
I love sport and comedy podcasts. I catch every episode of The Grade Cricketer, a weekly show featuring news, views and interviews with major names from across the cricket scene. For laughs, I love Tiny Meat Gang with Cody Ko and Noel Miller. Wrong, but so right.
I also really like Conan O’Brien Needs A Friend because he has such a funny interview style and some great guests. As a massive Eagles fan, I also never miss the AFL Fantasy Podcast with Roy, Calvin and Warnie.
