I have had so many chats recently about podcasts, they are such an awesome media and powerful source of information but the iTunes store doesn’t make it easy to find ones that you might like.
I recommend the same ones time and time again and I wanted to share them with you too. I like to think I’ve found some more obscure ones that you may not have seen yet!
If you’ve seen QI you’ll know the idea behind this very well, the hosts of this podcasts are the brain boxes behind all the facts you hear on the show. This is the only podcast I can get David to listen to and consequently the one we binge listen to when doing long journeys. We love being able to take the facts into every day life and trump our friends with our knowledge!
This is a great one for long runs as well as long journeys.
I struggle with ‘running’ podcasts, marathon talk bores the hell out of me, so when some of m friends (from twitter now turned friends in real life) decided to go out on their own and start a podcast I was over the moon! In their own words ‘a podcast about running, and the rest of your life’ and I totally agree, this one is definitely not just for runners, it’s like the UK version of Call Your Girlfriend. Download and enjoy!
I love food, throwing parties and hosting and so do these three super guys. I’ll front up with you, this podcast is totally over the top (in the best way) and very American but I love them for it! I could never throw a full on ‘tiki’ party but there are loads of great ideas on theme-ing you can throw into your next soiree. Make sure you listen to their episode ‘Will it Waffle’ especially if you have recently acquired a waffle iron.
I love the theme tune for this one. Another american foodie podcast but on a completely different topic. Cathy interviews authors of awesome cookbooks in niche areas and also covers lots of trends and fads giving them proper consideration. Make sure you listen to the episode on Bulletproof Coffee where you get to hear the opinions of paleo lovers, coffee lovers and a nutrition expert. A great down to earth discussion.
Her no nonsense, down to earth style is sure to get you thinking about the big things in life. Plus if you listen really carefully you might hear her doggy Stringer Bell.
