Oh wait what’s that…another party I am late to? THE PODCAST PARTY. Where have I been!? How did I commute 3 hours a day for 8 years without podcasts? I’ve recently become obsessed with listening to podcasts and thought it would be fun to share with you my top fifteen that I am loving listening to at the moment! When I discover new podcasts, I find it a bit like Instagram in the sense you just keep discovering other podcasts that you like and you get completely lost in the moment. Sooo in no particular order, here are my faves!
1. TALKING TASTEBUDS WITH VENETIA FALCONER – @venetiafalconer
I have the biggest GIRL CRUSH on Venetia and her podcast is the highlight of my Tuesday. Venetia interviews different people within the health + wellness industry and my faves so far have to be – Hazel Wallace, Alice Liveing, Madeleine Shaw, Carly Rowena, Ella Mills, Zanna Van Dijk + Melissa Hemsley. Definitely download if you are into all things health + wellness!
2. KEEPING IT CANDID WITH MILLIE COTTON + SOPHIE MILNER – @millie_cotton + @sophiemilner_fs
In their own words…
A weekly podcast series discussing current events, pop culture + everything else #millenial. I follow both Sophie and Millie on Instagram and really love their blogs and listening to them have a good old natter!
3. LET’S DISCUSS WITH ELLA GREGORY (COCO’S TEA PARTY) + MONICA BEATRICE WELBURN (THE ELGIN AVENUE) – @cocosteaparty + @monicabeatrice
I love how varied the girls podcasts are and I really relate to a lot of the topics that they discuss. They cover everything from finances, health + fitness, social media, relationships + dating. EVERYTHING a twenty something girl wants to talk about.
4. LIVE. LIFE. BETTER. WITH MELISSA HEMSLEY – @melissa.hemsley
Melissa is the girl you want to be your best friend. She’s a DREAM. I’ve used her cookbooks for a number of years now + was lucky enough to meet her recently (and get my copy of Eat Happy signed by her, oh hey girl hey!). When I came across this podcast I was delighted as it touches upon all things self care which is a huge topic at the moment and something I feel is super important for all of us.
5. SHEERLUXE – @sheerluxe
If you haven’t heard of SHEERLUXE, have you been hiding under a rock? sheerluxe.com is an online magazine which features news and views on everything fashion, lifestyle + beauty. The podcasts cover success stories, fashion trends, where to visit features, health + wellness, etc. and they speak with tons of #GIRLBOSSES. A truly inspiring listen every time!
6. HAPPY PLACE WITH FEARNE COTTON – @fearnecotton
This podcast only launched very recently but I really enjoyed listening to the episode with Dawn French. I only wish I was older when French + Saunders was on! I feel like this will soon become a firm favourite and one I will really look forward to week after week.
7. THE EMMA GUNS SHOW WITH EMMA GUNS – @emmaguns
The episode that led me to discovering Emma Guns podcast was the episode with the gorgeous Lou and Em from A Style Album (@astylealbum). Emma also covers a lot about meditation, self care and interviews some really fabulous females including Jo Tutchener-Sharp, Alex Steinherr, Mother Pukka, Jo Elvin and many more.
8. THE MOTHERKIND PODCAST WITH ZOE BLASKEY – @motherkind.co
As a new mum this is a podcast I have really found I connect with! Zoe talks a lot about how important looking after your well-being is in those early days of motherhood and dealing with a newborn baby.
9. THE PARENTHOOD WITH MARINA FOGLE + DR CHIARA HUNT FROM THE BUMP CLASS – @thebumpclass
I first started listening to the Parent Hood podcast about six months into my pregnancy and I found it really exciting to listen to everything related to being pregnant and becoming a parent. A must for any mama to be!
10. STRONG NOT SKINNY WITH HOLLIE GRANT, THE PILATES PT – @thepilatespt
One for all the health + wellness lovers, yay!Hollie interviews people such as Melissa Hemsley, Mel Wells, Emma Mills + Pippa Murray.
11. IS IT JUST ME WITH JO ELVIN + JAMES WILLIAMS – @jo_elvin + @jamesconradw12
The extremely talented former Glamour Editor and queen of the hashtag #clothesmyhusbandhates interviews celebs such as Rochelle Humes, Emma Willis, Caroline Flack, Dawn O’Porter, Louise Redknapp + Davina McCall. SUCH an easy listen! *Also interesting fact…Jo once retweeted one of my blog posts which was an interview with Leanne Bayley, former Online Editor at GLAMOUR magazine and I still have it screenshotted it my phone. Should I have admitted that? Probs not.
12. GIRLBOSS RADIO WITH SOPHIA AMORUSO – @sophiaamoruso
The original GIRLBOSS and founder of NASTY GAL. That is all you need to know. Go give it a listen!
13. FIT + FEARLESS WITH THE GIRL GAINS – ZANNA VAN DIJK, TALLY RYE + HEALTHY FIT VIC – @zannavandijk @tallyrye @victorianiamh
Creators of #girlgains these girls celebrate everything strong not skinny and are HUGE in the world of fitness bloggers.
14. HAPPY MUM HAPPY BABY WITH GIOVANNA FLETCHER – @mrsgifletcher
Ah I enjoyed every single episode of this as it was one I started listening to after being bought the book by one of my best friends when I was pregnant. Gi interviews celebrity mums including Rochelle Humes, Emma Willis, Frankie Bridge, Fearne Cotton + Davina McCall. You won’t be disappointed!
15. AT HOME WITH…WITH LILY PEBBLES + ANNA NEWTON – @lilypebbles @theannaedit
Sadly there’s only ten episodes but they are all fab! I really hope they will bring out another series. The girls interview inspirational females including Terry De Gunzburg (By Terry), Giovanna Fletcher, Alexia Inge (Cult Beauty) and Liz Earle.
One for all the beauty junkies!
The one thing I enjoy most about podcasts is that I always feel like I’m learning something and they keep me inspired.
I hope I’ve introduced you all to some podcasts that you’ll enjoy listening to! I would love to hear your recommendations of other podcasts I haven’t mentioned so feel free to leave a comment.
PEACE, LOVE + COCONUTS.
