Aaahh podcasts, I love them. Here are three podcasts that are on high rotation at my house (actually my car – people interrupt my listening at home!)
A comedy podcast about feminism with loads of interesting guests and stand-up comedy thrown into the mix.
Recent favourites include “Episode 43: Nice Girls Don’t with Cal Wilson”, Episode 35: The Bechdel Test with Andi Osho” and “Episode 27: Hair Removal with Jordan Raskpoulos”. Genuinely big laughs and plenty of ideas and discussion to ponder.
Sophie Hagen was one of the founders of The Guilty Feminist podcast. Made of Human is a beautiful, gentle podcast. Sophie has a genuinely curious and deeply emotional way of interviewing. Actually it’s not an interview, this is true conversation. I just love her style of discussion and that she is always willing to reveal something of herself. Wonderful, angry, sad, a great podcast.
Recent favourites include: Episode 29: Gina Yashere – I’m not cocky; I’m confident and Episode 32: Jo Brand – I was surprised the heroin addict was unfaithful.
Standard Issue was an online magazine, now turned into a podcast. Hosted by comedian Sarah Millican, this is one of my favourite podcasts for when a big belly laugh is needed. Women comedians talk discuss masturbation, stationery, not being cool at school and more with a healthy dashing of swearing. So good.
Recent favourites include: Episode 7: Brand, Burke and Millican, Episode 8: Winkleman, Toksvig, Horgan and Millican and Episode 11: Coren-Mitchell, Hynes, Morgan and Millican.
That’s it from me. Tell me, what are your favourite podcasts right now?
