The Guilty feminist is one of the funniest podcasts you will ever listen to. Walking in public isn’t the best way to listen to the podcast due to how impossibly funny it is (I can inform you I did get some strange looks) but also the podcast is one of the first things I’ve listened to that discusses feminism in a way that is so easy to connect to and it makes being an activist for equality seem accessible for everyone – because it is and I think no-one should feel that they can’t stand for what they believe in. The guests comedian Deborah Frances-White brings to the show add something different every week, they discuss topics that are so personal with such ease.
Emma Gammon interviews so many amazing people on her podcast Ctrl Alt Delete. Spanning from the likes of blogging babe Tanya Burr to Lena Dunham, a relaxed interview that seems more like a chat, every episode is something new and I always find myself intensely stalking whoever she interviews; the guests are brilliant and the conversations? Even better. At the heart of every podcast is how the internet as changed our lives, for the better, for the worse and what people are doing with the power of putting yourself online for everyone to see.
If you wanted something more ‘fashion’ orientated then Conscious Chatter is definitely the podcast for you. Hosted by Kestral Jenkins (who created AWEAR world) , Conscious Chatter highlights the people who are changing the fashion industry for the better. She talks with people who are leading the charge to further good changes in a complicated industry. Discussing ethical fashion in an environment that is positive and promoting those in the industry that are striving to develop a better world of fashion.
From listening to a copious amount of podcasts, I have come to realise that there is no way I am going to stop listening to them soon. They’re informative, funny and you don’t need to be paying 100% attention whilst listening to them to still soak in whatever is being talked about. Oh and I have to mention Rookie mag is coming out with a podcast on April 4th so keep an eye out for that, I don’t know what it’s about but if the podcast is anything like their blog I think I’m going to be hooked.
