Last year saw a meteoric rise in the popularity of podcasts, and 2018 shows no signs of this trend slowing down. There quite literally is a podcast for everything- food, politics, anxiety, science, body confidence, feminism. You name it, iTunes has got it. What podcast you’re listening to has become a regular topic of conversation, and we certainly have our cult favourites. Given the diverse personalities, quirks + careers of our expert contributors, we had to ask them what their go-to listens are right now. If you’ve exhausted all your options and are seeking to expand your horizons, look no further than the epic list we’ve rounded up for your ears only.
- THE CALMER YOU PODCAST w/ CHLOE BROTHERIDGE
ALT/ anxiety expert + hypnotherapist Chloe’s podcast really has helped many of our contributors feel calmer during times of stress + worry. We all tend to overthink, overanalyse + over worry about things, and Chloe helps us reset by reminding us to ‘zoom out’ + bring things into perspective. Covering everything from overcoming binge eating with our expert Mel Wells to integrating habits that prevent burn out, we could all do with a little reminder that things aren’t always as bad as they seem.

- FIT + FEARLESS w/ THE GIRL GAINS
We’re loving Tally, Zanna + Victoria’s all-inclusive message about wellness, exercise + body image. Their huge passion for ensuring ALL topics are spoken about is super inspiring and pivotal in helping shift the stigma surrounding topics like eating disorders + mental health. No stone is left unturned as they delve into pros + cons of social media, break down fitness myths (we love the ep about how weights make you BADASS and not bulky) + how healthy living is a necessity and not a luxury.

- SEX WITH EMILY w/ EMILY MORSE
‘Sexpert’ Emily Morse’s non-bullshit, non-judgemental approach to sex is super refreshing and makes for an often hilarious listen. Plus, don’t be surprised if you come away from each episode with a knowledge bomb or two!!

- FROM THE HEART w/ RACHEL BRATHEN AKA YOGA GIRL
We not only love the people that Rachel features (hello Deliciously Ella!), but more importantly, the level of honesty, intimacy, humanity + love that is shared is second to no other podcast we’ve heard before. Calming + comforting, it serves to reminds us that we are all connected to something bigger + that at the end of the day humanity is more alike than we give it credit for. We all experience the same feelings- be it happiness, heartbreak, joy, sadness + love, and it’s this reminder that gives hope in the darkest of times.

- THE TIM FERRISS SHOW w/ TIM FERRISS
Since losing ourselves deep into his book ‘The 4 Hour Work Week’, we’ve been long time lovers of Tim Ferris’ pod. It’s without a doubt one of the most informative ones out there. The sheer diversity of his guests gives us exposure to so many different viewpoints + perspectives on life, business + societal issues. Given how open we are to all alternatives, whether it comes to health, nutrition, relationships, it’s oh so refreshing to hear someone venture beyond mainstream belief systems on how we should / shouldn’t live our lives.
