Podcasts made my days more bearable during lockdown 1.0 & 2.0 and I’ll now be turning to them to do the same during 3.0. I wake up most mornings and pop in my AirPods to listen to one of my favourites whilst getting ready for the day. They keep me company on walks and get me through the tasks I find the most boring (sorting washing, changing beds…) I honestly would be lost without them. From making me laugh, to teaching me new things, they are my ultimate feel good habit. I recently asked my Instagram what podcasts I should try next and was inundated with suggestions, check out the list below for my favourites and the most popular suggestions. I also highly recommended Claudia Winkleman’s book ‘Quite‘ as an audio book- one of my favourite reads/listens ever!
