P-P-P-Pick Up a Podcast

9:00 am

For me, podcasts are the perfect thing to do when you're doing nothing. Off on a walk, sitting on the train, or just bored at home, pick up a podcast and laugh along or discover something new! Here are some of my favourite podcasts on a wide variety of topics.

Call Your Girlfriend is the podcast of Ann Friedman and Aminatou Sow, calling itself 'a podcast for long distance besties everywhere'. Ann and Amina record this podcast as a way for them to chat to each other about current affairs, entertainment, social issues, and anything else under the sun. These two ladies are absolutely hilarious and at the time of writing, there are only four episodes of this podcast (including the introduction) for you to catch up on, so there's no excuse not to really. They also post a reading list alongside their podcast on their Tumblr for your pleasure, because who doesn't love a good reading list?

My all-time favourite podcast is Radiolab, probably the all-time favourite podcast of anyone who listens to Radiolab. It's something else entirely, I can't even describe it. Hosted by Jad Abumrad and Robert Krulwich, Radiolab calls itself 'a show about curiosity' with each episode dedicated to a new theme or idea, with multiple stories relating to the theme or idea. It's impossible not to learn something new with Radiolab and it'll turn you into one of those people who has a story for every subject someone brings up when you're chatting. I will never not love Radiolab. 

Calling all Trekkies, if you don't listen to Mission Log: A Roddenberry Star Trek Podcast, you're severely missing out. The mission of Mission Log  is to watch every single episode and motion picture of Star Trek (yes, every single one, including The Original Series, Next Gen, even the Animated Series) and analyse it for its messages, morals, and meanings. You'll never look at the show in the same way again. 

By now a lot of you will know my love towards the Headspace app, but you may not know they also have a collection of podcasts on different topics and how you can incorporate meditation with them, such as commuting or love. A perfect addition to your already wonderful Headspace experiences. 

Do you listen to podcasts? Do you have any favourites?
