Our best podcast recommendations

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!

Amy

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.

Isabelle

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.

Danica

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.

Sam

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.

What are you listening to right now? We’d love to know! If you fancy listening to our MD, Amy in action, head over to Osprey Creative’s podcast and You Tube channel for her recent interview about all things digital and tourism!

THE BEST BARS IN PERTH

We love Perth and we love a cocktail, so we thought we’d share with you our favourite spots for a tipple in Perth. Whether you like a dark, cosy corner to drink in, or to take in some spectacular views from a rooftop bar, here are the spots you’ll find us at on a Saturday night!

Itás picks

  • Strange Company in Fremantle is one of my favourites. It’s got a great vibe and it really reminds me of New Orleans where I studied and lived for years. In this little spot, it feels perfectly acceptable to have a cocktail at any time of day!
  • El Grotto in Scarborough. Hands down TH BEST margaritas I’ve had in Australia. I love their Spicy Margarita and it goes perfectly with their pumpkin tacos.
  • Panama Social in Northbridge. They have a room dedicated to Ricky Martin, need I say more? You’ll be living la vida loca in here – their décor is super cute and the cocktail list is brilliant.

Amy’s picks

  • The Shorehouse in Swanbourne offers the best ocean views, Insta-worthy yellow sun brollies and a cocktail list you can easily spend the afternoon working your way through. Although this place looks swanky, you can walk up straight from the beach with sandy feet and salt in your hair and enjoy a refreshing cocktail. The perfect sundowner!
  • Darling Darling in Fremantle is great if you want to enjoy a stripped-back drinks menu and a dark corner. The bar is based on a seafarer’s tipple spot from the 1800s, for weary sailors who spent years at sea travelling from overseas to Fremantle. It’s dark and cosy, plus you can grab a handful of monkey nuts, crack into them and leave the shells on the floor. A novelty, but a fun one.
  • I’ve got to give a shoutout to my local, the Rose and Crown Hotel in Guildford. This is one of WA’s oldest pubs and it has a gorgeous, leafy beer garden. This is within walking distance from my house, so it’s often the place I come with my husband and our two young boys – one in the pram, one on his bike – for a Sunday afternoon drink and dinner. There’s a lovely atmosphere and usually live music on the weekends.
  • Sneaky Tony’s is also one of my favourites. They do a mean sour cocktail and I’m a sucker for the “knock and give the secret password to get in” gimmick. Make sure you follow them on social for today’s password. 

Danica’s picks

  • Halford Bar is one of my favourite’s in the CBD. It’s a bit tricky to find, but that makes it feel like you’ve stumbled upon something a bit special when you do get there! Top tip, if you’re looking for one of Perth’s hidden laneway bars, follow the cobblestones in the pavement, they’re all there to act as pointers to bars or restaurants!
  • I recently tried out the new bar at Hyde, the latest addition to the Perth hotel scene. They’ve got a gorgeous poolside bar and summery, cool decor. I spent the afternoon munching bottomless fries and drinking white wine. It doesn’t get more “Perth” than that!
  • Another newbie is the Quarter Acre Hotel. It’s in Applecross, so a bit out of the City, but worth the detour. The menu is full of summery food and they do a special Sunday session with DJs and drink specials.

Top tips for staying creative

Lightbulb

I was watching my two boys playing yesterday and it struck me how creative they were. My 4-year-old was making up different scenarios and games with his train set, whilst my 18-month-old was pretending to eat the play food in his little kitchen. ❤️

It made me think about creativity as an adult, and how it’s so easy to get into a rut doing the same things for too long.

It’s so important to try and keep things fresh and new, especially when you’re working with clients who expect a lot from their agency. I’ve been thinking about ways to increase my creativity and thought I’d share a few tips with you!

🚶‍♀️ – Get moving. If I’m feeling blah or needing to get the creative juices flowing, I try to go for a quick walk. Fresh air (and most of the time a strong coffee) clear my head and help me think about things differently.

📴 – Turn off my phone. I used to start Googling or scrolling Instagram to help get ideas flowing, but I find when I do that, I actually end up either overwhelmed by content or just replicating what’s already been done. By taking a little digital detox I usually get the space to think more clearly about bigger ideas. I normally have a few lightbulb moments on holiday, which I think is due to being away from my work and letting the creative juices flow.

🎧 – Be inspired. I try to listen to a good business podcast or read an article at least once a week. I love Seth Godin for his quick riffs that get you thinking (especially since he’s now back on Insta showcasing them in a nice visual way), or his podcasts to spark ideas.

🍜 – Eat. If me and the team are getting a bit stuck in a rut, I normally suggest going for lunch. To be honest, this only happens once a month, but just having a meal and chatting about clients normally sparks a few good ideas and new things to try.

🖊️ – Start. Most of the time, once I start thinking about ideas and noting things down, lots spill out at once. It’s the actual starting that takes the effort. So I try to clear some time for thinking and ideas each month (it really should be each week, I’m working on that) and just do it!

What do you do to shake things up and stay creative? I’d love to know!
