Podcasts are taking over the media landscape – in the US, the number of people having listened to a podcast in the last month has steadily increased over the last decade, leading to 32% in 2019 – reason enough to celebrate International Podcast Day on September 30th. Just grab your smartphone, download a podcast app – and don’t forget to put on the right headphones if you don’t want to annoy those around you. Whether you’re on the train, on your way to university, running in the park, or relaxing at home after work – put on the new MOMENTUM Wireless headphones from Sennheiser and off you go. We are introducing five podcasts you should not miss out on below.
1 –Sh**ged Married Annoyed
The weekly podcast from Rosie and Chris Ramsey gives you intimate insights into the relationship of the Ramsey family, while also answering questions from the public. Whether it’s a dispute in the relationship or parenting, nothing is left out. If you’re not afraid of very private subjects, this could be the right podcast for you.
2 – My Favorite Murder with Karen Kilgariff and Georgia Hardstark
“Stay sexy and don’t get murdered” – since 2016, this has been the catchphrase of the two comedians Karen Kilgariff and Georgia Hardstark. Every week, they publish an episode of their famous true crime podcast together. The style of the podcast is lighthearted and very entertaining: In dialogue, they recount and discuss a true crime story each episode. Both funny and scary, it’s a podcast for anyone looking for a different take on crime stories.
3 – Call Her Daddy
If you’re embarrassed about a story from your youth, you better listen to this podcast – you’ll probably feel better afterwards! Relationships, sex, the NY social scene and as many embarrassing stories as you can handle add to the mix in this great podcast from Alexandra Cooper and her best friend Sofia Franklyn. No blushes are spared in this entertaining treasure trove of stories from the wild twentysomething lives of these two podcasting girlfriends.
4 –The Guilty Feminist
Comedian Deborah Frances-White brings you a wonderfully unique idea for this hilarious podcast: Recorded in front of a live audience, she and her special guest discuss the topics that “all 21st century feminists agree on” every week. In this podcast, Deborah and her guests talk about the challenges of everyday life, the fears and uncertainties they face, and how best to overcome them without rejecting their own principles.
5 – 3ShotsOfTequila Just think about the sort of open and honest conversations that you can only really have with a best friend – where literally nothing gets left out. Marvin Abbey, Mr Exposed and Tazer Black do this in public. Their close friendship lets them serve up straightforward talk that can go deeper than your usual podcast: not least because of the generous 90-minute running time of each episode. There’s nothing average about the 3ShotsOfTequila podcast.
