To bear with the Sydney public transport, I’ve become a big fan of podcasts. I only found podcasts a few months ago, and at the moment I listen to them almost daily. They seem to be a trending thing all around the world so it’s easy to find good ones on so many different topics. I’m also wanting to start recording my own podcast at some point but at the moment it’s just an idea.
Anyways, I thought I could share my favourite ones with you. Maybe you already are listening to some of these but I’m happy if you find even one new podcast to try.
Interesting stories behind some of the best-known companies in the world. For example Joe Gebbia, the founder of Airbnb, tells Guy about his struggles trying to convince people that accommodating strangers in your home could actually be a business idea. My favourite episodes besides Airbnb are Instagram, Virgin and Lululemon Athletica.
A podcast I just recently discovered. It’s a feminist podcast about what happens when women “break the rules” and the hosts talk about issues that people very often stay silent about. My favourite episodes so far are “How to Break the Bronze Ceiling” and “How to Break the Silence”. The first one is about a monumental gender gap and the second one about domestic abuse, specifically about a case in Melbourne a few years ago.
A Finnish podcast about anything you would talk about over afterwork drinks. I’d say that this podcast is my personal favourite because it’s in Finnish and it’s hilarious. I also like the fact that the hosts do their research on the topics beforehand and sound like they know what they are talking about. My favourite episodes are “Introvertti vs. Ekstrovertti”, “Riikinkukko tunkiolla ja muita suomalaisia” and “Parisuhde 2.0”. I can’t wait for the ladies to get back from their summer holiday already.
Another hilarious podcast in Finnish, sorry! The name says it all, this podcast is nonsense. But it’s also about (quite) important things that we often don’t speak about out loud, especially in the public. “Veriviikot & terapian tarpeessa” and “Jättekiva, eller hur?” have been my faves so far.
What would you add to the list?
