My 5 current favourite podcasts

IMG_6403

I have written about my favourite podcasts on here before… but since that was over a year ago, I thought I’d tell you my current favourites:

(also, only two are still on my favourites list, another I listen to but no longer my favourite and two have completely fallen off)

But first, I’m going to tell you how to listen to a podcast.

I have an iphone but if you have an android, listen through stitcher or soundcloud:

  • Look for the purple podcasts app icon
  • Click on search
  • Add the name of the podcast you’re interested in
  • The podcast will pop up
  • Tap, and tap subscribe

That’s it – easy! IMG_4650

  1. Here’s the thing with Alec Baldwin

Here’s where I wrote about why I like this show.

Favourite episodes – Billy Joel (of course), Molly Ringwald and Julianne Moore.

2. Personality hacker

So I’m a big MBTI fan and this married couple know their stuff. I’ve read up on my profile on various sites over the years but it was still nothing compared to hearing them talk for an entire episode just on your type 🙂

Interesting fact – I was a bit miffed at first when I saw the ESTJ one was only 40 minutes and then they start and say something like, “we know you ESTJs want to get to the point so we’re not putting in any fluff today” 🙂 I love it!

Favourite episodes – my one on ESTJ and the one that talks about energy drains (I had a HUGE aha during this episode)

My suggestion – take the quiz on their website, and then go to that podcast episode first.

3. Roisin Meets…

If you like the Irish accent, you’ll love Roisin. She talks to Irish celebs – authors, musicians, radio personalities. Aside from all the wonderful accents and Irish turns of phrase, it’s the perfect Friday podcast to listen as you drive to and from work.

My favourite episodes were the ones with Marian Keyes, Cecilia Ahern and Cathy Kelly (all authors I read) and recently, the one with a new-to-me author, Jennifer Johnston (she’s 86 and still writing books – such an inspiration), but my very favourite is with a mathematician 🙂

4. Happier by Gretchen Rubin

This one has not disappeared off my list in forever…. they recently won top podcast in the health and fitness category (emotional health?)

Start anywhere and work back.

Releases a new episode every Wednesday and a mini two-minute one on Monday mornings.

Favourite episodes – all of them but I did love the one about Sunday dread

5. The Lively Show

At the moment she’s going through a couple of big changes – just divorced, sold house, travelling without a permanent base so she’s “live podcasting” on feelings and such.

It’s a bit too much woo-woo/ intuition-type stuff for me right now, but go listen to the proper interviews she’s done because those are excellent.

Favourites – the one with Young House Love and the one with Liz Gilbert, Courtney Carver

That’s it for now.

Have you listened to any of these podcasts? Do you listen to podcasts? When do you prefer to listen?

  1. My favourite podcast is on being, hosted by Krista Tippett. Amazing and moving conversations with people from around the world, of all faiths, professions and ages talking about the big questions of being and meaning. The Podcasts are long, the unedited are over one hour.
    I also really like Here’s the Thing – a recommendation from your blog.

    • Oh Kirsten, thank you for letting me know you tried Here’s the thing – I’m thrilled!

      I listened to a Krista Tippett one (on your recommendation) where she interviewed Mary Oliver. While I enjoyed it well enough, they were a bit long and rambly for my preferred podcast style 🙂
