Podcasts that are Popping

I love a good podcast. I love the fact that you can have them on every subject and every genre. If i am bored or need something to listen to while i’m out an about there is now so much to choose from. I thought that I would put a little recommendation list together to help you when your looking for your next podcast. I have split them into a couple of different sections to guide in the choices because obviously recommendations change based on how much time you have to listen and what mood your in.

Stories / Play types

Mission to Zyxx

An improvised Sci-fi podcast 

This podcast has me in stitches every time I listen to it. You can 100% hear the enjoyment the cast has making the podcast and the storylines end up being somewhat ridiculous but great all at the same time. 

Liberty or anything really by Fool and Scholar productions.

The first podcast that I listened to by Fool and Scholar was the White Vault and honestly I have not regretted anything since. The White Vault was a thriller / horror podcast set at Outpost Fristed in the vast white wastes of Svalbard and is one I also recommend but soon afterwards I found Libery and was instantly hooked there are several different series set in the Liberty world and again leans towards thriller, sometimes horror and sci-fi. Has great production value and original storylines.

Episodic Podcasts

Behind the Bastards

I feel like i’ve learnt so much about the bad people in the world from this podcast. Each episode they explain the back and history of a different ‘bastard’ so many people that I had no idea about from all through time. It highly sarcastic and really interesting.

‘And that’s why we drink’

Honestly brilliant I’ve been listening to this one for years and love them to pieces. Its been great seeing them grow. I like the mix of crime and ghost / mystery and the general discussions between the hosts they have great chemistry and are wonderful to listen to.

Needs a whole season: 

Bear Brook

Two barrels, four bodies, and an enigmatic killer. The cold case that changed the way murders will be investigated forever – really interesting was hooked from the beginning great description – excellent narrator, really interesting. I have now listened to so many True crime podcasts but this is one of the best.

The missing Crypto Queen

Dr Ruja Ignatova perusaded millions to join her financial revolution. Then she disappeared. Why? Jamie Bartlett presents a story of greed, deceit and herd madness.

I have not been interested in any type of bit coin however, obviously I’ve been aware of its rise in popularity. This podcast was a rollercoaster. Hearing from people who unfortunately were scammed into buying this coin and the investigation into the company was really eye opening.

The Drop Out

Money. Romance. Tragedy. Deception. The story of Elizabeth Holmes and Theranos is an unbelievable tale of ambition and fame gone terribly wrong. How did the world’s youngest self-made female billionaire lose it all in the blink of an eye? How did the woman once heralded as “the next Steve Jobs” find herself facing criminal charges — to which she pleaded not guilty — and up to 20 years in jail? How did her technology, meant to revolutionize healthcare, potentially put millions of patients at risk? And how did so many smart people get it so wrong along the way?

I had heard about the story of Theranos before but this podcast really went into depth of what occurred and the absolute craziness of it all and is a great listen.


Those are all my recommendations for now I’m sure in the future I will find many more podcasts. I hope that at least one of these takes your fancy 🙂 . If you have a recommendation for any podcasts you think that I would enjoy I would love to hear them below.
