Here are the podcasts I listen to everyday, in no particular order!
Episodes of The Moth are brilliant. Real people telling real stories on stage and they are always incredible. Well worth a listen, and opten only 10-15 minutes long so perfect for taking breaks.
A couple, one a doctor and the other a comedian, talk about how we would treat the ailments of old. For example the old treatments for syphilis, abortion, sexual health, colds. It's really interesting.
Last Podcast on the Left
Not one for everyday listening. the best episodes deal with "heavy hitter" serial killers. This bunch of comedians take a look through the childhood, and back ground of serial kills up to their capture and or death. It is FASCINATING, but a bit much sometimes. They try to take a light hearted approach where ever possible to break the tension, but it's an informative look at serial killers, if you're at all interested.
Lighthearted pop culture chat.
HISTORY! This is a grass roots podcast by two guys in their bedroom/kitchen. Each episode is a look into the kings and queens of England (series two looks at Scotland). They then rank the royals in a series of categories, and finally decide if despite all of the scores, if they have the "rex factor." Star quality that makes them stand out in history. It's very interesting.
You Made It Weird
My absolute favourite in the list. I listen to this more than any other podcast. It's easy listening. Comedian Pete Holmes sits down with different comedians and friends and makes it weird on three topics: Comedy, Sex and God. It's so much fun to listen to, spiritual, honest and hilarious.
Love + Radio
Incredibly well produced story telling. AMAZING radio.
The QI podcast. The QI elves (mining the emerald mine of knowledge) share their facts for the week and then any linking facts they can come up with and it is hilarious and interesting at the same time. Fabulous for the tube ride.
Recently discovered Lore is now my favourite podcast! The episodes are one man speaking, Aaron Mahnke, who goes through history surrounding folk lore. It's told like a story and I could not be more hooked. Plus short episodes mean they are meant to be devoured.
