10 Podcasts That You Should Download Now

I love a good podcast. In particular putting one on to unwind before bed, when I’m cooking or just out and about! I’ve been looking for something new to listen to, so I asked on my Facebook page what TLM followers for recommendations and now I’ve got a very long list to get through. I’ve picked out a top ten of must listens. You’ll find almost all of these on Acast, Apple Podcasts and Spotify.

I’ve been a huge fan of Dolly and Pandora since the High Low began. I even miss it when these two ladies take a break! If you’re after a quick run through weekly culture, the High Low catches you up on everything, as well as discusses the topical things you’ve been thinking about.

The Style Matters Podcast

Listen to interviews with the people who know how to do it best. On Style Matters, Zandra, the founder of Little Yellow Couch interviews top stylists, designers, artisans and tastemakers to inspire our creativity and teach us a thing or two about style. From understanding colour and decorating your house with books to decluttering and making your home work for you, I always finish an episode feeling like I have some work to do.

Grounded with Louis Theroux

I’ve always got time to watch or listen to Louis Theroux, so I was pleased when he started his Grounded podcast during lockdown. His chats with Jon Ronson and Helena Bonham Carter are particular favourites.

Happy Mum Happy Baby

One of the number one parenting podcasts has to be Giovanna Fletcher’s. I love her honesty and frank conversations with high-profile parents. “There is no such thing as the perfect parent, and we’re all simply doing our best,” is her motto and she really gets into the nitty gritty in some episodes.

Motherkind with Zoe Blaskey

I like Motherkind because it tackles problems we all have to face at some point: how to break up with guilt, how to develop a relationship with your inner self, and homeschooling in lockdown. Motherkind aims to help motherhood be less overwhelming!
