Top 5 Feel Good Podcasts.
The world of podcasting has well and truly exploded in the past few years and we SO are here for it. There's just something about sticking on one of your favourite audio series as you work/chill out- it's not too distracting, it keeps you company and it's a testament to technology that we can feel involved in a conversation without actually *being* there.
Whether you need something to make you laugh, or just fancy having a nosy into the lives of some super cool people, podcasts are the way to go. We have rounded up our ultimate top 5 feel good podcasts that are guaranteed to take your mood from a two to a ten. So, sit back, press play and let the magic happen...
Table Manners with Jessie Ware
Food and chitchat- our two favourite things. Singer Jessie and her mum Lennie cook for their guests and discuss all things food and life on their fun, homely podcast. The series had so much success, it now has a whopping 11 series, alongside its own accompanying cook book, which was released in 2020. With guests such as Sam Smith, Sadiq Khan and Nicole Scherzinger, there is never a dull moment. Fancy a nosy into the cooking habits of your favourite stars? Press play now...
This City with Clara Amfo
For anyone who has lived in or just loves London, this is the one for you. Radio 1 broadcaster, Clara Amfo, dissects the capital with a host of famous faces. From the OG Sugababes, to writer and activist Reni Eddo-Lodge, Clara’s guests are fascinating and fun, sharing their own experiences of London and how it has shaped their lives. We particularly love Clara’s ‘if you were mayor for the day, what would you do?’ section. Clara, hit us up, we have some ideas...
The Receipts Podcast
One of our favourite things about podcasts is their ability to make you feel like you’re part of an exclusive group of mates, as you laugh along to all the hosts’ inside jokes. That is EXACTLY how The Receipts podcast makes you feel. Hosted by Audrey Indome, Tolani Shoneye and Milena Sanchez, this girl gang have endless no-filter discussions about everything from dodgy exes to everyday experiences as a woman. With a new episode released every Wednesday, this podcast is guaranteed to make you CRY with laughter.
Hosted by the wonderful Adwoa Aboah, this podcast was born from her non profit organisation and online platform Gurls Talk. Designed as a safe space for womxn and gxrls to discuss all things life, Adwoa’s podcast takes her platform to the ears of her community. The show covers a totally broad range of topics, from grief to representation, and sex to addiction. We love the fact that Adwoa and her wonderful guests tackle serious subjects that are often shyed away from in mainstream media. Gurls Talk is the perfect combination of entertainment and education, and we can only thank Adwoa for bringing us so many episodes of total magic.
Changes with Annie Macmanus
DJ and dance legend Annie Mac is the BEST. Her Changes series sees her discuss all things past and present with a host of insightful guests. From Happy Mondays’ Bez, to author Bernadine Evaristo, Annie sits down to talk through the changes that have occurred during the childhood and adulthood of her wonderful guests. Using change as a key focus point, it's super interesting to see Annie and her guests talk about how their significant events have impacted the journey of their lives.
