My podcast listening really ramped up this year. Here’s a list of what I’ve been loving:
The High Low
A really entertaining British (so I miss some of the references) podcast with two journalists who are quite on top of recent pop culture and news. They thoroughly review what’s going on and have insightful conversations, and recommend things to listen/watch/read. Nice for listening to on the commute or while cooking.
Armchair Expert with Dax Shepard
Really long and intense conversations with Dax and his various friends / colleagues. Some of them are quite long so be prepared for that but I really liked the episode with Lena Dunham particularly. It’s generally about life and various things, no real focus but quite engaging and interesting.
The Minimalists Podcast
One of my favourite podcasts to listen to, nice 30-60 min episodes about how minimalism works in various aspects of your life. Not much else to say - it’s really good and they give great advice and stories to the question-askers.
On the Line with Estee Lalonde
I’m not a big fan of her youtube channel but her podcast episodes are quite interesting to listen to. Some of them seem to pander to trends that I’m not really into but some conversations with real experts are refreshing to listen to, and they actually debunk a lot of social trends with actual evidence! See the episode with Anjali Mahto in particular!
I’ve only listened to a few episodes, but the Snapchat Thief was the one that got me hooked. Great tech-related stories and investigations, quite funny and I really like how they conduct research/experiments!
Stephen Fry’s Great Leap Years
This is a closed series that’s ended now, but a really entertaining listen about great inventions that transformed the world (that you wouldn’t expect). Nice for a road trip, because come on, we all love Stephen Fry.
