8 podcasts that will change your life

16 May 2018

I hate to exaggerate or provide false hope...so maybe these podcasts won't change your life.

However, since I started the graduate working life, I've become obsessed with podcasts. Listening to a podcast makes the working day go so much faster, they are a massive source of inspiration and a good forum to keep up to date with what's going on in the world. 

So here's the top 8 to put on your list...
  • The high low podcast 
The High Low is a weekly pop-culture discussion podcast by journalists Dolly Alderton & Pandora Sykes. It's based on the mixture of political talk (the high) and trivial talk (the low). This podcast feels like you're having a conversation amongst your friends thanks to their witty yet informative, well articulated chat.
  • Keeping it candid. 
Two of my favourite bloggers (Sophie Milner and Millie Cotton) and their award nominated podcast 'Keeping it candid' is a weekly pop-culture podcast (you see my theme). This one is for the bloggers out there. Let's be honest, there are a lot of podcasts out there but what I love about Keeping it Candid is that it is raw and honest (they discuss a range of things from blogger rates to diversity). It's completely genuine rather than listening to a podcast that is solely designed for the sake of obtaining sponsorships. 
  • Made Online
Another one for the bloggers is 'Made Online'. As the title suggests it's all about those bloggers and businesswomen who have made their career or brand online. Created by Hayley Carr (www.hayleyhall.uk) it's a must listen if you want to get into blogging or online business. The advice given by Hayley and her guests(including Gracie Francesca) are straight talking, no BS tips on how to improve your blog or any online venture you want to or are currently pursuing
  • London School of Economics
Although I do love a good bit of pop culture, the Economics geek in me loves listening to the London School of Economics public lecture and events series. Each week, a world class speaker will give a lecture on their specialised area, covering the issues that are facing society. As with all lecturers some are great, some are not so great but the majority of podcasts have a great level of discussion and allow you to learn something new.
  • Girl Boss radio 
I'm one of those people that loves listening to people's life stories, understanding their journey, how they've found success, how they overcame knock backs and became a girl boss. Introducing Girlboss Radio with Sophia Amoruso - the podcast by Girlboss Media CEO Sophia Amoruso. I've loved Sophia right from the Nasty Gal days, so seeing her go from eBay to a best selling author is more than inspirational. I also love how open she is about her experiences and facilities refreshing chats with her guests that are interesting, funny and inspiring. 
  • Fearne Cotton - Happy place 
If you're all about the positivity, then this is the podcast for you. Fearne has a really casual interview style that has allowed the podcast to go into open, thought provoking conversations. 
  • Fashion Unzipped by The Telegraph
This savvy and sassy podcast is brought to you by the Telegraph fashion team's and discusses topics such as can fashion bring women’s rights to Saudi Arabia? and can science build your perfect jeans? Perfect for those fashion fanatics who want an easy listen at their desk.
  • In Good Company with Otegha Uwagba
You know that millennial pink book that featured on every bloggers/instagrammers feeds called 'Little Black Book: A Toolkit for Working Women' - introducing the brilliant podcast created by the books brilliant author. You don't have to be working in the creative industry or any particular industry to enjoy and benefit from this podcast, but the practical advice and discussions with smart, successful females is one not to miss.
