Even though I’ve always been aware that podcasts exist, I didn’t start properly listening to any until about a year ago – and I’ve never looked back.
Being in a long distance relationship, I have a lot of in-between time spent travelling to and from Sheffield to where my boyfriend lives. Those three and a half hour journeys are long, and there’s only so long I can sit listening to music (though I have spent many-a train journey listening to the Hamilton cast album on repeat). Occasionally I’ll spend my time listening to an audiobook, but podcasts are definitely the best way to pass the time, in my opinion.
They’re so relaxed and conversational, and depending on how good the chemistry is between hosts/guests, it can often feel like you’re just sat chatting with a friend (in a very one-sided manner, of course). I don’t just listen to them when I’m travelling, I’ll also listen to one or two while I’m at work, or even around the house when I’m cleaning or cooking.
I thought I’d share with you all ones that I’ve been loving so far.
