I’ve been on the podcast game for quite a while lately. They are a massive part of my daily routine, whether that’s when I’m walking the dog, emptying the dishwasher or doing some painting. They feel more relaxing than a YouTube video, which you have to actually watch, and a lot less annoying than having the radio on (just me?) Plus if you choose correctly, sometimes it feels like you actually have friends over for a coffee!
So, lets get on to the most important part: what I’m listening to lately:
Fearne Cotton ‘Happy Place’
I know I’m very late to the bandwagon with this one, and I have no idea why because I LOVE Fearne, so of course I love her podcast too! I’ve listened to three or four so far, and they’ve been super interesting to hear about different ‘celebrities’ real lives. The production seems very laid back and relaxed, and every guest I’ve heard so far has felt really authentic and open.
One to listen to: Tom Daley & Lance Black.
Deliciously Ella podcast
I’ve always liked everything Deliciously Ella is about, but I have to be honest and did think this podcast might be too preachy for me, and in turn, probably make me feel bad and like I wasn’t doing enough. In fact, it’s nothing like that at all! It’s all about trying your best, which is different for everyone. Ella and her husband Matt, speak about health and well-being in such an approachable way, and after every episode I’ve left feeling very inspired.
One to listen to: They are all amazing, but the one that sticks out the most to me is with The Happy Pear.
Letters From A Hopeful Creative by Sara Tasker and Jen Carrington
I enjoy both Sara’s and Jen’s individual podcasts, but I love this one they do together. They work so well together, and whenever I’m feeling a bit fed up with the internet, I tune in and leave feeling my own kind of motivated. I love how they speak about different topics that I can relate to, and they always remind me that I can build an online life that’s different from the rest, and one that works for me.
One to listen to: I can’t possibly choose a favourite! They are all just as good as the other.
The Fringe of It with Liv Purvis and Charlotte Jacklin
This podcast is like a big comfort blanket for me! It feels like you’re joining two friends for a chat over a cuppa, and it never fails to cheer me up. I discovered this quite late to the game and I’ve loved catching up with all the episodes. I find them both super relatable, and I love how the episodes tend to be pretty long too. Each one is a catch up on their week, and then a discussion about a different topic.
One to listen to: Discussing Life Lessons & Advice, and Discussing Influencers and Life Online.
Magic Lessons with Elizabeth Gilbert
A lovely internet friend mentioned this podcast to me after I asked for recommendations and I love it. I’m a massive fan of Liz Gilbert anyway (Eat Pray Love, is probably my favourite book of all time and the first thing that got me into meditation) and I read Big Magic this summer, so it was obvious that I was going to really like it! Each episode is with a guest and they discuss topics about creativity, inspiration and life lessons in general.
One to listen to: “The Thing That You Are Seeking Is Also Seeking You”.
