Podcasts on Podio
Not sure what podcast to try first? Here’s a selection of the podcasts we are loving in the Podio Office (and we’ve heard a few thousand!).
Under The Skin
Forget what you think you know about Russell Brand. This podcast features Russell and his excellent guests discussing the world today and our place in it. He describes it as a mix of “revolutionary politics and spiritual awakening”. We describe it as one of the most listenable podcasts ever.
Remember when you were a kid and all you needed was a comfort blanket or favorite teddy to feel all was well in the world? This podcast talks to creatives about their grown-up comfort blankets. It could be a book a film or a favorite piece of music. This new podcast is quickly becoming essential listening.
Code Switch from NPR tackles the subject of race head-on. Fearless conversations about race help us all understand the issues better and what we can do to engage in the issues, afterall it affects all aspects of society.
The Wittering Whitehalls
Michael and Hilary Whitehall (sometimes better known as Jack’s parents) are here to help you through this modern life with some timeless advice and insight. It’s a bit like spending time with your posh great aunt, or grand-parents. Except more swearing and rants than you might be used to! This podcast is a classic in the making.
Connor Ratliff was set for a small part that could be his big break. Until Tom Hanks ruined everything. The setback was huge, stalling Ratliff’s acting career for years, and leaving him plagued with self-doubt and insecurity. Did he really have, as Hanks had reportedly said, Dead Eyes? This epic podcast takes us on a hugely funny, and uplifting journey which culminates with everyone’s favorite actor himself.
Decoder Ring is the podcast that investigates a cultural phenomenon, examines its history and seeks to answer two questions: what it means and why it matters. Topics are varied, but the quality of this podcast is always high.
