I can’t clearly remember when I discover the wonderful world of podcasts, but it has been a few years, and I can say that I have tried a bunch, before finding my favorite, close to heart list of podcasts.
Some are well-known, discussing historic or society topics, while others – you will discover – are just pure entertainment, for the time in the week when you just want to have a funny, feel-good audio background to your everyday chores.
Of course, podcasts are perfect for travelling, either to work, school, or on longer journeys. I don’t know how I would have survived on my (long) trip to Cambodia without a few episodes that I downloaded for offline listening.
Let me know what do you think of these podcasts and which are your favorites! Also, what app/s do you use for listening to podcasts and when do you enjoy them – in the morning, maybe in the afternoon, relaxing, or before bed?
- Stuff You Should Know is a great source of interesting content, exploring different themes, from everyday items (The Duality of Caffeine) to less known historic concepts (How the Voynich Manuscript Works). The fun Chuck Bryant and Josh Clark are the perfect podcast hosts, making the experience more enjoyable!
- Filler is a UK based podcast, the creative child of Harry Hitchens and Matt Shore. Weekly, they have discussions with bright, innovative, creative people, from YouTube personalities, to filmmakers. This is the podcast to listen if you are in need of a dose of inspiration. The conversations are genuine, overall beautiful and they have succeeded in creating a warmth around the episodes that makes the listener feel part of the conversation!
