THE PODCASTS WE LOVE
Podcasts are making a comeback in 2019 and invite users to enjoy a diverse range of subjects covered by professionals and inspiring voices.
They provide an effective method to share, entertain and inform the audience in a unique and accessible way to the mobile-first generation.
So, if you want to create a new stream of content or become inspired by daily stories, here are the best podcasts of the moment for you to indulge…
1. 2 DOPE QUEENS
If you are looking for a comic podcast, we recommend 2 Dope Queens. Hosted by Phoebe Robinson and Jessica Williams, the two girls record live in front of a studio audience in Brooklyn. They created a winning mix between standup comedy and comic guests.
“Nothing is off-limits”
They are brutally honest and brilliantly funny, so no wonder why Michelle Obama chose to support them as a guest of honour in their recent episode.
HBO also just picked them up, showing that these 2 girls are quickly becoming the next big thing!
2. MODERN LOVE
On the love side, we recommend Modern Love. The New York Times weekly relationship column is becoming a podcast to ensure your daily dose of romance is never-ending.
The two hosts Meghna Chakrabarti and Daniel Jones invite in the studio celebrities to read out loud the newspaper’s column.
It’s like a comic, extensive archive of hilarious, relatable, heartbreaking stories on love.

3. OPRAH’S MASTERCLASS
It’s evident that you have to listen to Oprah’s podcast as the American symbol is giving us even more wisdom with her series of episodes of podcasts which invite inspiring stories from talented icons.
She sits down with top celebrities like Jane Fonda or Jay-Z, and casually discusses their lives, the life lessons they have learned and much more!
It’s a great way to get to know these iconic faces and learn about their successfully journeys in a bespoke way.
4. THE SONG EXPLODER
If you are a music buff, this podcast is for you! Whether you are a sound engineer, a producer or just a music enthusiast, this podcast will blow your mind.

You’ll get to understand how the famous Game of Thrones soundtrack was made and understand all its little secrets among many others!
5. FASHION NO FILTER
Last but not least, for fashion lovers, Fashion no Filter is a must.
Camille Charriere and Monica Ainley the two quintessential cool girls with wardrobes to die for have a podcast, and it is addictive.
Their podcast reflects on everything that is fashion; from concepts, images and clichés. In each podcast 3 or 4 guests come and share their expertise and point of view on an inherent subject to the fashion industry.
