New Podcasts to Love

My most favourite podcast, Something Wonky, has ended. They said they would only do 200 episodes and they have done just that, 200. Podcasts are my jam when I work out, I can't do it without them, so I have been on the lookout for something else to listen to. Scrolling through the top 100 podcasts on iTunes, I came across the Mamamia Podcast Network. Mamamia is not normally a website that I go to. The site just isn't for me, but I greatly admire Mia Freedman, the woman behind Mamamia. She has been a force for good in the magazine world and she has achieved so much. It also turns out that the podcasts produced by the Mamamia network are for me. The 

No Filter

podcast and the

I Don't Know How She Does It

podcast are both fantastic.

On

No Filter

Mia interviews interesting people about their lives, no filter. I started with the Caroline Overington interview and found it fascinating. From her time in New York working as a correspondent with 18 mth old twins, to her mantra 'Fake it until you make it', to her helping Oprah live her best life.

I Don't Know How She Does It

 podcast has an interview with busy women about how the fit everything into their day. Women who you've wondered 'how the hell does she do it all?' It's a fascinating incite into the lives of women we admire and women we may not have heard of, who have busy, busy lives. I started with the Michelle Bridges podcast, eager to hear how she's going with her fitness empire and new bubba. Interestingly enough she does not have a full-time nanny, she co shares the 'babysitting' with her partner.

Both podcasts have the feeling that you are just out for coffee with friends. The women chat easily, it's fun and it makes you think. It's very different to Something Wonky, I am going to have to find a new political podcast, but I do like how

No Filter

and

I Don't Know How She Does It

have opened my listening horizons.

Infinite Folk spotify playlist is on repeat.

Have you tried any of the Nike training club workouts? I’m enjoying this 12 min tabata trained workout as a warm up before my weights program.

Giving to UNICEF Syria Appeal.

I am back on the Dr Pepper - the perfect fizzy drink.

Listening to the new Man Repellar podcast. I have been a long time fan of Man Repellar. This podcast gives a little insight into the philosophy and lives of women. I highly recommend it.


I recently finished reading Little Big Lies by Laine Moriaty. I literally could not put this book down. So good. Hoping the parents at Lulu’s school will be a little more welcoming!

Spent a recent Monday afternoon cuddling a sick child. While it isn’t great having a sick child, it was wonderful to be able to drop everything an just be. The Ben and Holly episode we watched inspired me to spend the evening after she went to be watching Grand Designs. I encourage you to take an evening to yourself and do something that calms your soul.

Do you listen to an iPod when you workout? When we lived in Melbourne I'd use my commute time to listen to podcasts, but in Alice Springs, the commute here is non-existant (lucky us!) and I have to find other times to listen to podcasts. I've found that when I run or workout is the perfect time. This year I've added a few more awesome podcasts to my rotation, so I am going to have to increase the amount of time I spend working out to ensure that I have time to listen to them! 

Podcasts I'm loving include:
TOFOP has been a favourite for a long time. It was Will Anderson and Charlie Clauson just shooting the shit, but then Charlie got a paying job that didn't approve of the podcast and it is now Wil Anderson chatting with other comedians. It gives insight into the working lives of comedians and is pretty funny. 

Something Wonkey is a political podcast from Jeremy Sear and Dave Gaukroger that also touches on news and Australian Media. The guys are based in Albury-Wadonga and it is great to have perspective from people outside of the capital cities. While their politics are similar to mine, it gives me greater argument for why I believe what I believe and is a great way to catch up on the political goings on of the week.

Chat 10 Looks 3 with Leigh Sales and Annabel Crabb - Here they talk books, cooking, tv, movies. Just like having a chat with your best friend. Oh I wish these ladies were my best friends. 

Wilosophy - a new podcast from Wil Anderson. He talks to friends and colleagues about their life philosophy. I started with the episode here he spoke to Judith Lucy, who has always been a bit of a hero of mine. It was gold.

I Seem Fun: The Diary of Jen Kirkman - Jen Kirkman was on Wilosophy and from there I became hooked on her podcast. She talks to herself, alone in her room. The podcast is about everything and nothing in particular all at the same time. Kirkman has an awesome attitude to life and the right mix of wit and smarts. She is a staunch feminist and is also socially awkward. My kind of lady.

Here's the Thing with Alec Baldwin - My sister-in-law put me onto this one. Alec Baldwin talks to policy makers, artists and performers about many random things, including their big breaks, relationships, what keeps them going etc. His talk with Julie Andrews was mostly biographical and so interesting.

Please leave me a comment and tell me what podcasts you love. I need more motivation to get to the gym!
