Your favourite music? A good book? Or a podcast?

Here’s a list of our favourite podcasts of 2022 so far-anything you recognise?

  • How did this get made? – this one is for movie lovers and bad movies haters- the hosts watch a terrible film once a week and then spend some time analysing it- this one will pick you up if you’re feeling low! 
  • The Flipside with Paris Lees- the one where two people with contrary viewpoints meet up and talk-it’s lively, it’s chaotic, it’s incredible! 
  • Huberman Lab- science for laiks- the host, Andrew Huberman- a professor of neuroscience at Stanford University, talks about science in a way everyone can understand. Some of the topics cover creativity, relationships, and stress. Highly recommend! 
  • About race- by Renni Eddo Lodgeo, featuring key voices from the last few decades of anti-racism activism, and the recent history that led to the politics of today.   
  • What is this behaviour? – speaking to members of the South Asian community to unpack the many issues that arise when pursuing a creative career. Each episode interviews a different person who struggled with colourism, mental health, family issues, etc. Join and listen to their journey! 
Podcasting is on the rise and so is the quality of content to pick from
  • You’re wrong about- oh, these guys, Michael Hobbes and Sarah Marshall will have you question all your opinions about cultural events, public events, and sensations in general.
  • My Year in Mensa- cause who wouldn’t want to be a part of this exclusive genius club? Well….Jamie Loftus did the research for you! In the 4-part series, she talks about the test and being accepted, and attending the 2019 American Mensa Gathering in Phoenix, USA. Hilarious? Bizarre? All things above. 
  • River Café Table 4- this one is for people that can listen to food podcasts without getting instantly hungry- you’re the elite of this world! Celebrities discuss their memories of food-from Victoria Beckham’s times in Spice Girls to Paul McCartney going back to his first wine tasting with John Lennon. 
  • No Country for Young Women-  the hosts Sadia Azmat and Monty Onanuga talk about “life, love and work in a white men’s world.” About fitting into the white world when you’re not white.
  • Real Dictators- This one’s for the history lovers! Hosted by Paul McGann, the podcast explores the secret lives of history’s tyrants. 
  • Casefile- a true-crime podcast shrouded in mysteries. A voice you listen to but know nothing about because the host remains anonymous.  
  • But Why? With Clemmie Telford- Influencer, mum, and curator of the Mother of All Lists blog, Clemmie Telford attempts to get to the bottom of life’s trickiest questions by having honest conversations with an array of guests from all walks of life. 
  • Normal not normal- What is normal anyway? That’s the question James and Oliver Phelps (aka Fred and George Weasley in Harry Potter) are trying to answer. Because their start in life was definitely far from what society considers “normal.” 
  • Soundtracking with Edith Bowman- the host sits down with various film directors, actors, producers, and composers to talk about the music that inspired them and how they use music in their films.
