Podcasts I’m listening too…

I commute about 30 mins each way to work 4 days a week.

I don’t like to fill this time with aimless commercial radio, and I am not a huge fan of audiobooks (I am trying to change that but haven’t yet…)

I like to spend this commute consuming Podcasts – and I get through a lot of them in a week.

Below are my current favourite’s:


This is some light listening and all centred around NBA. The Lowe post is the more serious of the three, with The Starters and BS being a little more light and easy to listen to. Great listens for NBA fans.

  • The Lowe¬†Post
  • The Starters
  • The Bill Simmons Podcast



Have been listening to all these since they began. Big fans of all the people involved in these shows and although not super regular – well worth a listen when they come out.

  • Startup
  • The Journal
  • The Tim Ferriss Show


True Crime

I’ve always had an interest in True Crime, but have only just started listening to a few podcasts on the topic. All of these podcasts cover 1 case per episode, and some are pretty intense. Really well produced and researched.

  • Criminal
  • Casefile
  • Sword and Scale


This American Life is the original podcast and always amazingly put together. I consume the episodes as soon as they are released (Fair regularly)

  • This American Life

One thing I haven’t mentioned in here is how and when I listen to podcasts. I find that I need to listen to them when I can concentrate fully on the information being spoken which for me is when I’m driving, catching the train to or from work, and when I run (The latter I like the most)

Got any podcasts you know I should add to my list? Let me know
