5 FEMALE PODCASTS TO LISTEN TO ON YOUR MORNING COMMUTE.
The HighLow by Dolly Alderton and Pandora Sykes
Two journalists that discuss the news every week. They have a really comical way of dissecting things that I find oddly soothing. They pose questions that provoke further thought but also make you feel that you’re keeping up somewhat with the news, even if it through their eyes which makes it feel more fun. The episodes are just over an hour so can listen on the way to, and from work.
Let’s Discuss by Ella Gregory and Monica Beatrice
Ella Gregory is a blogger who I have been following for absolute years so when I found out she had a podcast with Monica Beatrice, I was really excited. Both of them seem really lovely and intelligent, they’re the kind of people you listen to and think you’d get on really well with if you were to meet them. They recently did an episode with Laura Jane Williams which was hilarious and had me laughing out loud on the train. There are so many episodes for you to catch up on so if you’ve got a long journey ahead, I’d recommend having a look at Let’s Discuss.
Keeping it Candid by Sophie Milner and Millie Cotton
I have listened to every episode of this podcast and I cannot recommend it enough. When I was away from home, this podcast made me feel like I was back in London with my friends and I still listen to old episodes because they cover really bold topics. They discuss these topics with a honest and genuine approach and explore different opinions too. They focus on news as well as things that they have in-depth knowledge of as influencers, such as Instagram algorithms. They’re the kind of people you want to go for a drink with because they just sound like they’re so much fun.
At Home With… by Lily Pebbles and Anna Newton
This podcast has just finished season 2 but I love going back and listening to old podcast episodes. My favourite was the season 2 finale which was with Ruth Crilly and Caroline Hirons, it is absolutely hilarious. Lily Pebbles and Anna Newton interview some really incredible people such as Liz Earle, Jo Elvin, Zoe Sugg, Callie Thorpe, the list goes on! Lily and Anna ask the questions we want to know.
Ctrl Alt Delete by Emma Gannon
I actually went to a live recording of one of Emma’s podcasts at a Jigsaw event earlier this year and it was amazing to hear her in person after listening to her podcast for some time. Emma has such an interesting style and her podcast is so hugely popular and you can see why. Once you’ve listened to one episode you’ll want to listen to them all! Her books are also incredible too, (I’m currently reading the Multi-Hyphen method and loving it). She interviews interesting people from all areas of life, giving you an insight into the way they think and what they’re up to.
As you can probably tell from the list above, I love a blogger podcast and I think it’s because I feel they’re used to relating to people! You get to listen to what is happening in the world rather than read about it and when someone approaches a topic in a new way, it makes you think about it slightly differently. I love being challenged on the way I think and view the world so podcasts are a really good way to do that.
