So I want to know, what’s your jam? What are you listening to?

7am podcast everyday. 15 mins. Focus on one news story/aspect then the headlines. Fantastic reporting.

Please Explain- supposed to be a half hour weekly news wrap. Now doing daily (but 7am is better I think).

The party room. (Yes I am a news junky)

Strong songs. I suggest listening to your favourite song on the list. Personally this is an amazing breakdown.


Chat 10looks 3.


A podcast of ones own- Julia Gillard.

And heaps more waiting.

I haven’t been listening to many much at the moment. I usually only do so when going out, which I don’t do at the moment, except for once a fortnight at most.

Usually though, I listen to:

The Guilty Feminist
Country Down Under

And I’ve previously listened to:

David Tennant does a Podcast with...
How to be a girl
No Filter
Books of Your Life, with Elizabeth
Queery with Cameron Esposito
The Alison Spittle Show

I'm enjoying audio dramas at the moment.... I'm listening to wolf 359, bright sessions, am archives, Blood ties, caravan, homecoming.  

Some are oldies.... Have complete finished.  But I'm enjoying them.

I also like please explain.

And I listen to some work related ones  - social work stories podcast and the social work tutor podcast.

I really like "stuff you should know". It's kind of esoteric and in theory boring topics sometimes but the hosts are really personable and funny. So it's entertaining and amusing.

No Such Thing As A Fish is my all time fave.

Brene Brown's also just launched a podcast called "Unlocking Us"

My Dad Wrote A Porno is a fun one too.

Meshel Laurie and Nelly Thomas are doing a weekly call about quarantining themselves and recording it - Welcome to Hell. It’s on the Nitty Gritty Committee feed.

And oh so many more - I am unpacking my house so listening to lots! I also have a job where I can listen as I work so I fill my days with podcasts.

A podcast of ones own is a new one I like.

Guilty Feminist and Griefcast are absolute faves but Griefcast is on hiatus as Cariad is having a second baby and wanted a break.

Don’t you know who I am by Josh Earl is funny
Global Pillage
My Favourite Murder
Judith Lucy - Overwhelmed and Dying
Like I’m a six year old a politics podcast by Tom Ballard
Ladies we need to talk - ABC with Yumi Stynes
The Dollop with Dave Anthony and Gareth Reynolds
The Pineapple Project
The West Wing Thing with Dave Anthony and Josh Olson
Wilosophy with Wil Anderson
Do Go On
Australian True Crime

"Them Aspergers". A very important part of my Tuesday morning routine and they didn't put one out this week. But I love them so I'll forgive them.

I'm a true crime junkie so listen to Swindled (my fave), Criminal, Court Junkie, Crime Junkie.

Now that I have watched the hot mess that is Tiger King on Netflix I might have a listen to that podcast as well.
