While I'm commuting to and from the office or walking to do a food shop - I'll probably have some podcast playing in my ear. They either teach me something I would never have thought about learning before or just show me a different perspective on something.
I also think it's super hard to find new podcasts, most of these came from recommendations over lunch or someone has shared an episode on Twitter that has got me hooked. So I thought I'd do the same.
Here are a few of my personal favourites. I've choose one of my favourite episodes from each which should be good starting points to get a sense of each podcast just incase you haven't gave them a listen yet.
I've long been a fan of Kevin Rose back from his days creating Digg and then hosting Diggnation. Now he has some of the most interesting guests on his show with the aim of uncovering insights that can benefit us all from knowing.
I recommend the Ryan Holiday episode.
I've always been excited by the future and what people can create or do and how we adapt and develop to advances in technology and other fields. Flash Forward takes us on a trip to the future so we can imagine the possible and not so possible worlds we may live in.
I recommend the Robocop episode.
I love hearing stories of how people got to where they are or how they built their empires.
How I Built This is a great series that allows us to get in the heads of the founders of some of best-known companies and brands that we all know and love.
I recommend the WeWork episode.
99% Invisible is a great podcast about all design and architecture that shaped our world as we know it today. It's really interesting and you're bound to learn something you didn't know about the things you use every day and how they came to be.
I recommend the Mexico 68 episode.
I love this podcast because it's always teaching me something about peoples perceptions or the motivations behind human behaviours that I'd never really thought about - extremely interesting for the people nerds.
I recommend the Rap on Trial episode.
Another great podcast where each episode tells a part of a story, the show is about the crime and corruption in US cities. The first season focuses on Providence, Rhode Island, where organized crime and corruption infected every aspect of public life
I recommend you start from the beginning of Season 1.
