Updated: Jan 16, 2021
For me, the silver lining of 2020 (if such a thing exists), is that I have *finally* caught up with the rest of the planet and discovered the joy that is a great podcast! Now, with winter firmly here to stay, I love nothing more than grabbing a cup of tea, popping on my headphones and listening to others have a good natter.
I thought I’d share some of the podcasts I’ve been enjoying over the last few months – if you’ve got any favourites leave a comment down below or let me know over on Instagram!
Phoebe Reads a Mystery
I’m a huge fan of a whodunit and this brilliant podcast has been giving me my literary fix.
The podcast, created by Lauren Spohrer and Phoebe Judge, features everything from Bram Stoker’s Dracula to Agatha Christie’s The Mysterious Affair at Styles. Each day, Phoebe reads another chapter from a mystery novel, bringing works of fiction to life.
Definitely one for the audible lover!
Grounded with Louis Theroux
A podcast. With Louis Theroux. Need I say more? No, but I’m going to, or this would be a very short blog. This BBC Radio 4 series sees Louis chat to 80’s icons, comedians, Youtubers and legendary actors including Helena Bonham Carter and Boy George. Witty, honest and insightful; with a second series on the way, this is a podcast series not to be missed.
Have A Cuppa Unmasked
This podcast, created by fellow voiceover artist Helena Mitchell, touches on all things invisible illness. Helena's series raises awareness for conditions such as colitis, lupus and chronic migraine and attempts to tackle the stigma that surrounds hidden conditions. Have a Cuppa Unmasked is an educational and positive addition to the world of podcasts.
You can click here to listen to the episode of Have A Cuppa Unmasked where Helena and I chat about our experiences with invisible illness.
Cooking is not my forte… to say the least! But this podcast has almost *almost* made me fall in love with cooking. Samin Nosrat and Hrishikesh Hirway’s podcast contains tips and tricks that even the most culinarily challenged of us can utilise. A dash of fun, a generous spoonful of foodie tips and a sprinkling of puns all go into making this podcast a genuine delight to listen to.
The Voiceover Hour Podcast
Rachael Naylor, Founder of The Voiceover Network, has created a podcast which offers a glimpse behind the microphone and into the world of voiceover. Each episode sees Rachael chatting to some of the industries most talented casting directors, agents, coaches and voiceover artists as they share their stories and advice. Whether you are a voiceover professional or just curious about the industry, this podcast has something for you!
