with all the commuting to work I’ve been doing lately I’ve been getting back into listening to podcasts a lot.
I love them.
There’s something special and intriguing about listening to a voice talking straight into your ears. Do you listen to any podcasts? If so, I’d love to hear your recommendations. I’m even thinking about doing my own podcast (still a bit on the fence whether I should do it or not, let me know what you think) that’s HOW MUCH I love podcasts.
Right, now that we’ve established my love for podcasts, I’ll share my current favorites with you. There might be something in it for you too. And if you haven’t stopped reading by now because you can’t hear me saying the word podcast one more time, check out the other post I did about my podcast favorites here. And even though ‘My Dad Wrote a Porno’ will probably always be in my top 3 of best podcasts ever, it was time to move on and give others a chance too, so here we go.
#1 Women of The Hour
This is Lena Dunham’s podcast and I just have to put it out there: This podcast is just SO GOOD and well made. Lena and her team cover a wide range of topics such as spirituality, love, friendship, cats (yeah the animals, not the musical) and many others. It’s well produced and the women interviewed are so inspiring and interesting to listen to. Give it a try friends, you’ll enjoy it.
#2 Woman’s Hour
Not to be mistaken with Lena Dunham’s podcast (see above) this is a podcast by the BBC. Listening to the British English alone makes me feel good for some (weird) reason. Take that and combine it with interesting and thought-provoking topics and there you go, a great podcast to add to your list.
#3 Ted Talks Daily
If you haven’t heard of Ted Talks, where have you been living for the last couple of years? This podcast covers their Ted talks in audio format and is just always so interesting. Check them out, you’ll always learn something new.
#4 The BBC Documentary
Today’s theme seems to be Women and the BBC. But boy, this BBC Documentary podcast is just great. Prepare yourself to go on a journey around the world, accompanied by great journalists.
#5 Dear Sugars by The New York Times and WBUR
This one was a bit of a surprise to me in the sense that I was surprised at how much I liked it. It gets really addicting and makes you question yourself and how you would reply to certain questions listeners ask the hosts in their letters. I should probably explain what it is all about first, right? Sozzz. It’s the former cult-favorite advice column from The Rumpus in audio format, hosted by the author of Wild, Cheryl Strayed and author Steve Almond. The podcast answers everything listeners have questions about, no matter how deep or dark.
