I can’t lie, I was not an early adopter of podcasts. In fact, it was with reluctance that I listened to my very first one, absolutely certain that nothing would convince me that I needed them in my life. I don’t know why the reluctance, but 40 minutes of laughter later and I was a convert. Fast forward a couple of years and thank goodness podcasts are still all the rage because I love listening to them and I’m now an annoying advocate, asking everyone “do you like podcasts?”!
Having a different and almost less intense way to consume media is refreshing and so much easier to fit into our busy, everyday lives. They are the perfect accompaniment to cooking or cleaning (when your hands are busy but your mind is not!), but equally there have been many times when I’ve sat down with a cup of tea and my favourite podcast and lost myself in it entirely. Our studio space here at Coco & Wolf lends itself very well to a podcast, and you’ll often find interviews and anecdotes flowing from the speakers so today we’re sharing some of our favourite podcasts which you may not have yet discovered and we hope you enjoy as much as we do.
