Five podcasts you need to hear

I have confession to make, I was (up until recently) a Podcast virgin. Yes it’s true, I didn’t realise there was a whole world of aural pleasure to be had (no sniggering). Seriously though, if like me you’re often looking for ways to cut out the noise of work, children, (perhaps even partners), then look no further than my Podcast picks. It’s by no means exhaustive, and I’m sure you’ve got your own favourites (or disagree with mine). In fact, there were so many possible choices that I may well do another list soon. But for now, have a listen.

Warning: put your headphones on for number 3…

(1) Hashtag Authentic
Sara Tasker (Me and Orla) shares tips on making the most of Instagram – there are four in total so far, well worth a listen.

 

(2) Ctrl, Alt, Dlt
Emma Gannon is a blogger, author, speaker and all-round digital wiz. Check out her podcasts Ctrl, Alt, Dlt. My favourite is the one with Gillian Anderson and Jennifer Nadel.

 

 

 

 

 

 

 

 

(3) My Dad Wrote A Porno

Jamie Morton reads out chapters from the books written by his Dad. Pant-wettingly funny stuff (I recommend listening to this with headphones on and a glass of wine in hand!).

 

(4) This American Life
A broadly journalistic theme runs through each weekly show, with some humour and essays. Difficult to categorise, but it’s quite addictive and definitely worth a listen.

 

(5) The Guilty Feminist
Funny stuff, in particular check out the one with Phoebe Waller-Bridge – creator and star of genius BBC Three comedy Fleabag.
