Ever since starting work in an office, I’ve discovered the joy of podcasts. I literally obsessively listen to them as I’m driving my commute, at my desk and when i’m doing my makeup in the morning!
So here are a few of my favourites:
5) THE BANGING BOOK CLUB- https://soundcloud.com/bangingbookclub
As someone who’s very open at talking about and learning about sex- this podcast is absolutely ace.
Lucy, Lena and Hannah are reading a book a month and discussing the *cough* ins and outs *cough* of it.
It’s informative, interesting and something different to my usual choices.
4) STUFF YOU SHOULD KNOW- http://www.stuffyoushouldknow.com/podcasts
A platform to ‘educate the public about common things and how they work’
You would not believe the amount of stuff that I’ve actually learnt from this. It gives you that random facts to impress people edge, plus it’s fairly short episodes so you can listen to it and then feel smug that you’re such a genius!
3) BRYONY GORDON: MAD WORLD- https://bryonysmadworld.telegraph.co.uk/
If you haven’t read or listened to Bryony then what the hell are you doing with your life? She’s a hilarious, intelligent woman, who just happens to suffer from OCD. (JUST LIKE ME!)
Her podcast takes a look at the mental health issues that impact everyone, she speaks to sufferers, celebrities and gives a light-hearted and positive look at a life with a mental illness.
(also read her book, the wrong knickers, it’s a corker)
2) AT HOME WITH- https://www.acast.com/athomewith
I’ve loved Lily Pebbles and TheAnnaEdit since the early days of Youtube and their blogs. Their new podcast explores the homes and what’s behind the famous faces in their safe place.
It defo grew into its own throughout the first season, becoming a lot more smooth running and I think that they’re such likeable people that if you’re into beauty, lifestyle or fashion there’s definitely something for you!
1) MY DAD WROTE A PORNO- https://www.acast.com/mydadwroteaporno
Imagine if your Dad wrote a dirty book. Most people would try to ignore it and pretend it had never happened – but not Jamie Morton. Instead, he’s decided to read it to the world in this comedy podcast.
There is absolutely no way that any podcast is ever going to top DWAP for me. Jamie Morton, Radio 1’s Alice Levine and James Cooper are three university friends, reading ‘Belinda Blinked’ – aka the world’s worst porn.
It’s laugh out loud hilarious ( honestly, I once had to stop driving because I was laughing so hard and thought I might crash)- they’ve got a great chemistry between them and there’s also 3 seasons so far!
Note: Don’t listen at work, you will end up stuffing your fist into your mouth. Also not one for family listening. Nope, nope NO.
Hope you enjoyed!
