My Favourite Podcasts Part ii

I'm so sorry this wasn't up yesterday as planned, unfortunately I ended up spending my Thursday evening in A&E. I'm all ok which is the main thing, but it's not exactly my idea of a relaxing evening and it meant I just didn't have time to finish some last minute edits to this post to get it up in time. So instead I'm finishing up my favourite podcasts of the moment today. These ones, like Monday's recommendations, are *the bomb* so give them a listen and let me know what you think! In the meantime, if you missed Part i of my favourite podcasts you can read that here.

6 // The Becoming Podcast - I first heard of Laura through the incredible Meg's blog. When Meg praises someone's writing, I'm the first to take her word for how good it will be. And that led me to Laura's blog, Superlatively Rude. As Meg had promised, Laura's writing is just divine and I've read every post she's written since discovering her blog. Through following her since then (bear with me, this is a bit of a tangent-prone story!), I found out about her book, Becoming, which is being published in June this year. It's all about Laura's becoming and how she's grown into the person she is. Out of this idea, The Becoming Podcast was born at the start of this month. And boy, am I obsessed with it. Every episode focuses on a specific person's becoming and I'm learning so much from it. The episode with Daisy Buchanan has to be the highlight for me so far, but you simply must have a listen to this if you haven't already. 

7 // Ctrl Alt Delete - I'll try and make this not so long of a story as the last one but, in a similar vein, I found Emma's blog, Girl Lost in the City, through Laura! Keeping it short and sweet, love her blog, so excited for her book which I believe is out in July, and this podcast is sensational. I listened to the episode with Dawn O'Porter on Wednesday which told me everything I needed to hear at that moment in time. Podcasts have a funny way of doing that I find, and this is definitely worth giving a listen.

8 // Filler - I've mentioned Filler before, in fact, I wrote a whole post on it which you can read here if that takes your fancy. It's a creative industries podcast in which Harry Hitchens and Matt Shore interview people working in range of jobs in the creative industry. Every single episode is so insightful and this podcast is probably the one that I find the most inspiring from the perspective of a student who will, hopefully, be entering the world of work in a few years.

9 // The West Wing Weekly - Subscribing to this podcast may just be the nerdiest thing I've ever done. But I DON'T EVEN CARE! This podcast is hosted by Hrishi Herway and Joshua Malina, who plays Will Bailey in the show. The premise of the podcast is essentially that they go through each episode in order and discuss it, sometimes with guests who have also acted in or worked on The West Wing. I adore The West Wing show and am heartbroken that I've nearly come to the end of it (one more season to go) so this podcast will keep my West Wing fix alive once I've finished the show. A bit of a niche one but if you're a West Wing fan, this one's for you.

10 // Slow Home Podcast - This is a relatively new discovery for me, after reading Jenny's post on it. It's quite similar to The Lively Show (on my list from Monday), in that Brooke interviews similar people. I love the fact that Brooke and her husband also make episodes about projects they're taking on each month. From yoga every day to a month of no sugar, they're really interesting and in this day and age who doesn't like the idea of perfecting the art of slow living?!

So there you have it. Ten podcasts you should most definitely give a listen. Let me know what you think of them if you do! I'm off now, hope you all have a fabulous long weekend.
