I love a good podcast. Here’s five of my current faves I recommend you check out:
Serial: If you haven’t heard about Serial then you need to do two things; 1) Crawl out from the rock you’ve been living under and 2) Download Serial now!
Season One focuses the real life murder case of Hae Min Lee which occured in 1999 in Baltimore. Sarah Koenig (who’s voice is as addictive as the series) pulls apart the case piece by piece over twelve weekly episodes. Be warned, it’s highly addictive and will suck you right in! Serial Season Two is also out now and is based on the case of Bowe Bergdahl, an American soldier who abandoned his post Afghanistan in 2009 and was captured and held by the Taliban for nearly five years. I’m not finding it as addictive as the first season but it’s still a very interesting story.
Let It Be: The very first podcast I ever listened to was ‘Slow Your Home’ by Brooke McAlary, so when she recently teamed up with one of my favourite bloggers, Kelly Exeter, for this new podcast series I knew I’d love it. Brooke and Kelly discuss some big topics- judgment, rejection, legacy and success and get you thinking about ‘what it means to do less and be more’.
Magic Lessons: If like me you’ve read Big Magic by Elizabeth Gilbert and loved it then you’ll also love this follow up podcast where Elizabeth guides a different creative through discussing their process, doubts and struggles each week. If you’re the creative type you’ll find it both interesting and helpful.
Hamish and Andy: If you want a good belly laugh you can’t go past Hamish and Andy. These days I miss out on listening to them on the radio so their podcast is the perfect way to catch up on all their shenanigans.
So you want to be a writer? If you’re a writer or interested in becoming one, this is the podcast you need to listen to. Valerie Khoo and Allison Tait (both successful authors and journalists) offer tips and advice and discuss the latest news and trends in the world of writing and blogging.
