It feels like everyone and their mother is jumping on the Podcast bandwagon. But we are here for it. We just love having a good podcast to listen to. They’re great to have on on the background while you’re doing your “bits and pieces”. And they’re even better as a distraction on public transport. Podcasts are also a great way to get an anxious mind to relax. Because you have to focus on what’s being said it’s a great way to distract yourself. They’re also FREE!
It was only after we put this list together that we realised that it was an all female lineup. Now we’re all for equality, but it’s great to see so many women killing it in this genre when sadly we’re very under represented in the mainstream media, such as radio.
We’re also kinda, maybe thinking of putting a Missy podcast together later this year. Let us know what you think.
Anyway, here’s 5 Podcasts To Listen To Right Now…
“At home with…”
You might already know Lily (aka Lily Pebbles) and Anna (The Anna Edit) separately from their Youtube Channels and blogs, but last year the real-life besties joined forces and started their own podcast, At home with… where the girls chat to their subjects about their homes. So basically if you’re a nosey you’ll love this! In the first season Lily and Anna picked some of our favourite people to interview. From our all-time favourite blogger, Kate La Vie, to Giovanna Fletcher to Zoella. It’s an easygoing and relaxing listen.
Girl Boss Radio
Have we reached peek #girlboss? It’s debatable, but the podcast, Girl Boss Radio, is well worth a listen. Sophia Amoruso interviews a whole host of inspiring gals. Our fave interview (so far!) was with Emily Weiss from Into The Gloss/Glossier. The girl is goals!
When we heard that our favourite travel bloggers, Twins That Travel, were venturing into the land of podcasts we may have jumped for joy. Twin Perspectives is a great mix of chats around travel, blogging and mental health. The only downside is that you may be tempted to jump on the next plane out of Dublin Airport.
Keeping It Candid
Keeping It Candid is weekly podcast series discussing current events, pop culture and everything else #millennial. Its basically like listening to two of your friends.
The Fringe Of It
Imagine our excitement when we found out this week that one of our fav bloggers, What Olivia Did, was launching a podcast. Spoiler: we were mega excited. The Fringe Of It only launched this week, but we’re excited to see where it goes. The fab Olivia is joined by fellow blogger Charlotte Jacklin for some relaxed chats. Seriously, there’s something very soothing about Olivia’s voice.
Do you listen to any cool podcasts we should add to our lists?
