Podcasts I Listen to Every Week


This time last year I wasn't really a podcast listener then over the summer while mapping in Durness I got into them in a big way. Not only are they great for passing the day while mapping they are great for doing housework or walking to the shops (which I do a lot) so without further ado here are some of my favourites.

The High Low

One of the first podcasts I really got into was this current affairs and pop culture podcast hosted by Dolly Alderton & Pandora Sykes. Two ladies I hadn't heard of before I subscribed but have come to really admire. My favourite thing about this podcast is how much it gets you thinking about everything that is going on in the world around us in a really insightful way. Both Pandora and Dolly are inspiring women who are well read and can judge things in a very balanced way. I still have no idea which is which though. 

The Fringe Of It

I've followed Olivia's blog as long as I've been blogging myself so as soon as she announced her podcast with Charlotte Jacklin I subscribed straight away. It is the perfect, light antidote to my week because it is just like chatting with friends. Two inspiring, creative and funny friends (who I definitely have a lot in common with).  

Simon Mayo's Confessions 

For months my boyfriend played me his favourite confessions from the podcast and we both laughed in the car so I don't know why it took me so long to subscribe myself. I laugh out loud a lot and get a few funny looks. 

My Dad Wrote A Porno

I was sceptical but last summer I needed something new to fill my days solo mapping so I subscribed and binged listening to the first two series. It is just my sort of humour and side splittingly funny. Perfect for rural north west Scotland... maybe not for the university library!

At Home With...

Again a listen from my mapping project and I must say 10 episodes is not enough. I'm hoping they will do a second series. My favourite thing about this podcast was learning about people who I'd never really noticed about before in a really informal interview style. I'm now a big fan of Giovanna Fletcher for example.
