Podcast Recommendations - Favourite Podcasts Summer 2017

Over the past few months, I've become obsessed with podcasts and found myself listening to them at any given opportunity, possibly even more than music. There's something about being involved in someone else's conversation that really appeals to me, and whether I'm intently listening to an educational podcast or in hysterics over a more comedic one, you can assure that I'm obsessed. They're incredibly convenient to listen to while multi-tasking, whether that's while I'm tidying my room, walking to college or any other spare moment that I have. I've discovered quite a few podcasts that I love and so I thought I'd share a few of my favourites for anyone who isn't sure where to start or is looking for some recommendations.

At Home With...

I'm a huge fan of both Lily and Anna, from Lily Pebbles and The Anna Edit respectively, so when they announced that they'd be releasing their own podcast I instantly knew that I'd like it. Focusing on a different person every week, they delve into their home and discuss all things interior, life, beauty and much more. This is perfect for anyone who's nosy like me, and you really get to know the guest extremely well, gaining an insight into their life. Also, this podcast is perfect for me as a beauty and interior lover, with everyone having swoon-worthy Pinterest homes and great cosmetic recommendations amongst other talking points. From beauty experts like Lisa Eldridge and Liz Earle to bloggers like Kate Johnson and Zoe Sugg, there's a variety of guests, providing a real mixture and diverse insight throughout the podcast. Although the season has ended, I can't wait for the next season to be released and see what else they have in store for us!

Twin Peaks Unwrapped

This is the first podcast I started properly listening to, after the new season of Twin Peaks was aired and I was dying to know more. Bryan and Ben do an amazing job of unpicking each episode, covering plot points and story arcs in a lot of detail, as well as providing their own opinions and theories. Not only do the episodes help you to understand what's going on in the new Twin Peaks season, as David Lynch has understandably made it difficult to follow, but I also love hearing the different interpretations and possible meanings of events. If you're a fan of a specific TV show or series then I can guarantee that there'll be some podcasts dedicated to it, and I'd highly recommend listening to them as a companion to the episodes.

ProBlogger Podcast

As a blogger, I'm always looking for ways that I can improve my content and develop my skills within this field. I discovered the ProBlogger podcast through a recommendation on Twitter and I've really enjoyed working my way through the episodes since. It's incredibly informative and filled with tips on a variety of topics related to blogging, whether that's working with brands, promoting on social media or building an audience. If you're a blogger or thinking of starting your own blog, I'd highly recommend listening to a few of these episodes as they're definitely useful and have helped me immensely.

Stuff You Should Know

This was my go-to podcast when I was sunbathing on holiday, being a very fact-heavy yet still enjoyable one to listen to. Since there are a variety of episodes, you can choose a topic or subject area that fascinates you, and tune in for lots of facts and interesting information that you didn't already know. A lot of the topic areas are quite specific and niche, including things like horoscopes, fever dreams and children's cartoons just to name a few, but I have to say that all of those that I listened to were genuinely entertaining and engaging throughout. I love listening to these as you definitely feel educated and enlightened about a specific area, yet the fun, laid-back style makes this approach to learning much more enjoyable and engrossing.

The NoSleep Podcast

If you're a fan of the 'NoSleep' subreddit, then you'll definitely like this podcast, as it translates a lot of the interesting yet creepy stories into an audio format for you to listen to. I'm not usually into scary stories or films, but a lot of these are psychological horrors and more likely to keep you up all night thinking than physically scare you, which is definitely more to my tastes. This is the only fictional podcast I listen to, but it's great if you don't have time to sit down and read the stories, as you can listen along whilst going about your day. I've only listened to a few of my favourites, such as the Penpal series, but I liked the pacing and how the tension was really amped up, so I'd definitely recommend this even if you're not normally a horror fan.

These are just a few of the podcasts that I'm currently listening to, but there are many others that I've been regularly enjoying and found myself engrossed in, and I could always do another post like this in the future if that's what people would like. I'd highly recommend checking out some of these podcasts if you haven't already, and I'd love to know your favourite ones down in the comments below.

Remember that I'm running an exciting giveaway of some brand new products from The Body Shop, so make sure you check that out by clicking here, as it's open for another week!

Thank you very much for reading and I'll see you again next Sunday!

Love from Daisy x
