Move over binge-watching, here at Mr & Mrs Stitch it is all about podcast binge-listening. Listening to podcasts is a common way to pass the time while commuting. But we have discovered that you don’t have to be the world’s best multitasker to continue listening to them once you reach the office. Especially when working on the sort of tasks you could do with your eyes closed, having a podcast on in the background can help improve your productivity and keep you focused.
Here at the Mr and Mrs Stitch offices we opt for entertaining podcasts that are humorous, factual or both. There are hundreds of thousands of podcasts out there. So, to help you get started we have compiled our top 5 podcasts.
No Such Thing as a Fish
From the QI offices comes a podcast full of comedic facts and things you never thought you would know. Four of the researchers for the hit British TV quiz show QI come together once a week to share their favourite facts they have come across that week. Sometimes rude and always interesting, you’ll find the amount of obscure knowledge you store in your brain growing with each episode.
Named by the Guardian on the list of best podcasts in 2016, this podcast will have you laughing and cringing at the same time. This podcast is a storytelling series where regular people read out their most embarrassing childhood diary entries live on stage. Listening to some of the stories has us squirming in our seats with unwanted reminiscing. But overall this podcast is a hilarious reminder that we were all awkward as teenagers.
Answer Me This
The Answer Me This podcast has won Podcast of the Year at the Sony Radio Academy Awards, British Public Radio Awards, and European Podcast Awards. The hosts Helen and Olly have been answering the world’s questions for a decade. This podcast is an amusing ‘how to’ on anything and everything.
Hamish and Andy
Who doesn’t love an Australian accent? This podcast is recorded by the infectiously funny kings of Australian comedy. Containing daily excerpts from their drive time radio show, you never know what you’re going to get. You can tell by the pair’s chemistry and banter that they were best friends long before their radio careers took off.
The Modern Mann
The Modern Mann podcast was runner-up in the UK Radio Academy’s Podcast of the Year award. This weekly show is a modern men’s magazine in audio form. If you want to be informed about trends, news, food and fashion in an entertaining way, then this is the podcast for you. Most importantly, you don’t have to be a man to enjoy this podcast.
