8 brilliant podcasts that should be on your radar

Whether you’re an audio enthusiast or yet to join the hype, these are the podcasts to stream now

Lifestyle

Modern Love

“This is the companion podcast to the New York Times’ weekly series of personal essays, where people describe every iteration of love and all kinds of intimate relationships, from first kisses to unlikely friendships and experiences of parenthood. The host, Meghna Chakrabarti, invites your favorite actors – think Sarah Paulson, Sandra Oh, Awkwafina and Saoirse Ronan – to read these stories aloud. It’s just as wonderful (and as tear-jerking) as it sounds.” Georgia Simmonds, Arts Editor

The High Low

“Taking cues from legendary magazine editor Tina Brown’s signature mix of high-low reportage, journalists Dolly Alderton and Pandora Sykes present this addictive pop culture and current affairs podcast that, in the past year, has tackled everything from Ireland’s abortion referendum to the latest season of Love Island. Both broadcasters also happen to be avid bookworms, so expect reading-list recommendations aplenty. It’s frothy and fun, with substance at its center.” Fedora Abu, Editorial Intern

Dissect

“Driving through France last summer we listened to over 20 episodes of this compelling podcast series, with the first season offering line-by-line analysis of Kendrick Lamar’s extraordinary album To Pimp A Butterfly. I was already a fan, but Dissect just opened my eyes and ears to the political and poetic complexity of Kendrick’s achievement. The presenter, Cole Cuchna, weaves music clips and snatches of interviews into his forensic, uber-geek examination. Life-changing, frankly.” Sarah Bailey, Executive Brand Editor

Monocle 24: The Entrepreneurs

“The Entrepreneurs is a weekly series of snappy interviews with inspiring high-fliers, from the co-founder of Silicon Valley startup Slack (valued at a whopping $7bn) to the owner of new boutique hotel Amastan in Paris. Don’t miss the episode with Claire Ptak of Violet Cakes, who shares her journey from pastry chef at Chez Panisse to being handpicked by the Duke and Duchess of Sussex to create their wedding cake. What better motivation to dust off your business plan for 2019?” Fedora Abu, Editorial Intern

TED Radio Hour

“How can we instill bravery in girls? Can aging be cured? Can math help you fall in love? These are just a few of the universal questions that have been posed to date in this weekly 50-minute podcast, which features excerpts from TEDTalks and candid interviews with the speakers. The answers will astonish and astound you.” Victoria Haswell, Digital Deputy Chief Sub Editor

Mostly Lit

“A platform for the previously unheard, Mostly Lit’s London-born, all-black hosting panel and production team cross the intersection between popular culture and award-winning literature. Their ‘millennial’ take (hence the title’s double entendre) on old classics and new publications will have you laughing out loud and the show has rightfully earned accolades across the board.” Jonathan Sawyer, Digital Advertising Operations Director

Pretty Big Deal with Ashley Graham

“What would you expect from a candid-conversation podcast helmed by one of the most groundbreaking models in the industry? It’s all up for grabs here – culture, inclusion, beauty, body positivity, careers – wrapped up in Graham’s ‘big deal’ message: how to own who you are. As the first model to really effect change when it comes to size in fashion, she’s got the credentials to broach even the most sensitive subjects. Plus, with her own megastar status, she’s pulling a spectrum of guests who really have something to say: Amy Schumer, Halima Aden, Lilly Singh… From discovering that Gabrielle Union’s basketball-star husband Dwyane Wade wears nail polish to hearing Serena Williams admit that there is something that terrifies her (listen to find out what), you’ll have your eyes opened and your spirits raised.” Jennifer Dickinson, Digital Editorial Director

Desert Island Discs

“Music is a memory trigger, which is the genius of this show. The likes of David Attenborough, Elton John and Dame Judi Dench choose eight songs and travel through their own past, uncovering events and feelings that have marked the most important moments of their life. Brilliantly prompted by the host, Kirsty Young and more recently Lauren Laverne, celebrities open up like never before. You can sit back on your commute to work or on your own desert island beach and listen to the juicy details of these famous people’s lives interspersed by some great, and at times surprising, music tracks.” Alexandra Dawson, Video Producer
