Up until the last year or so, I wasn’t really into podcasts. In fact, I don’t think many people were. However, nowadays it seems like great podcasts have been popping up left, right and centre! There’s a podcast out there for everyone – and if you haven’t yet found one that you enjoy, today I will be sharing 3 podcasts which are well worth listening to!
I owe my current love for podcasts to this little gem! Presented by ex-Glamour editor Jo Elvin and her colleague James Williams, this is the first podcast that I started listening to (back when it was called ‘Hey It’s Ok’). Each week, Jo and James are joined by a celebrity guest (Caroline Flack, Tanya Burr, Leona Lewis, etc.) where they discuss all the most important topics in life. Past topics include friendship break-ups, the (sometimes) awkward topic of friends’ partners, slagging off things you haven’t seen… and even whether it’s ok to not always have to push yourself outside your comfort zone – a topic I suggested based on one of my previous posts.
Top bloggers Liv Purvis and Charlotte Jacklin started their podcast, ‘The Fringe of It’ earlier this year – and I was convinced right from the pilot episode, that this would be a podcast I will be obsessed with! It’s a bit like meeting up with two friends for a cup of tea and having a good old catch up, with plenty of great recommendations (TV, music, fashion, beauty, anything!) and some really interesting discussion. Past topics include talking to strangers, getting out of a funk and body image. There’s also a Facebook group that goes alongside the podcast, which is a lovely little community of like-minded friendly people, and is well worth checking out too!
If you’re a blogger or you simply love learning more about the blogging world in general, ‘What She Said’ is a brilliant podcast! In each episode, Lucy Lucraft speaks to a different blogger/influencer and basically asks them all the questions that we want to know the answers too! I love listening to this podcast when I’m lacking blogging-inspo and equally when I feel like I’m on top of my game and want to discover more on what it’s like behind-the-scenes from some of my favourite bloggers. I’ve also learning some really great tips and tricks from listening to this podcast that have really helped me with my own blog!
