Someone please tell me why it took me so long to understand the necessity of a good podcast.
Honestly, since the beginning of this year, I’ve been listening (or at least trying to listen) to a number of podcasts whilst, driving, doing work, taking a bath etc… And I think I’ve finally managed to find a few that I like!!
So below is a small list of the podcasts I’m loving right now. Let me know in the comments if you’ve had the pleasure of listening to any that’s made it onto the list, or if you have any recommendations 🙂
It’s still early days as only 4 episodes have been released so far. However, Sunday Gems hosted by Kehlani & Reyna Biddy, has to be one of my all time favourite podcasts, purely because of it’s relatablity. Tackling the theme of depression in the first episode just goes to show that nothing is off limits for the pair. In addition to the podcast, we are also presented with curated playlists which closely follow the subject matter; alongside a shoutout to local black owned businesses and a Gem of the week giving reference to it’s healing properties and uses.
I first came across Kristina whilst looking for and eventually ordering a planner from her store: Kikki.K (which by the way sell the most amazing stationary ever). The podcast is based upon dreaming and how you can create the life you’ve always wanted for yourself. Kristina sits down with some of the most inspirational people who have all gone onto achieve great things, which at first otherwise seemed impossible.
If you love Astrophysics then this is the podcast for you. The first episode dates back to 2009 and has since then gone on to birth 2 spin off shows: StarTalk All-Stars & Playing with science. This podcast has somewhat of a comedic undertone, which is quite refreshing to listen to. A number of celebrity guests are invited on as co-hosts to discuss all things relating to the universe and science.
