I have mentioned before that I love listening to podcasts. Way back I wrote about my favourite “Bedtime Stories” (click on link), and although I still do listen to those podcasts, I have added several more to my playlist.
You can listen to episodes from the podcast archives on the websites (you can link to the podcast website by clicking on their titles), or download them via iTunes or your favourite podcatcher App. I use the Podcast Republic App on my smartphone.
Casefile: True Crime Podcast – a true crime podcast that is well researched, does not dwell on the graphic details of a case and has an Australian narrator with the most soothing voice ever. Start with Case 01: The Wanda Beach Murders and Case 02: The Somerton Man – both are Australian stories.
Death, Sex & Money – Three important topics of life that people hesitate to talk about openly. Anna Sale, the presenter, has a lovely voice and a gentle way of interviewing people. Start with: This Senator Saved My Loved Life, Anna Sale’s personal story.
Not By Accident: Sophie Harper, an Australian documentary filmmaker, tells the story of her decision to become a single mother. Sophie Harper tells her story with a mixture of narration and audio clips. Although hers is a situation I’m not familiar with, I found her storytelling compelling. Start with Episode 1: Insemination Story.
The Allusionist: Is a podcast about language and etymology by British presenter Helen Zaltzman (who has a great sense of humour). Some of my favourite episodes include: Episode 1: Ban the Pun, Episode 13: Mixed Emojions, Episode 20: Baby Talk, Episode 33: Please.
Unsolved Podcast: This podcast features stories of unsolved crimes from around the United States. It is hosted by Heidi Galore, a crime analyst and former police officer, so offers an “inside” perspective on crime. This is a new podcast series so start at episode 1.
Which podcasts do you listen to? Do you have any recommendations for me?
