OUR TOP 10 PODCASTS OF 2017
In no particular order
You Are Not So Smart
This is a funny, challenging and conversational podcast covering topics as diverse as machine bias, reality, physiology of sleep deprivation (be warned if you're a parent!), the future of psychology and pseudo-profound bullshit. Keep the mind open, and keep up!
Adam Buxton Podcast
Apart from the hit of feel-good nostalgia and general silliness, Adam speaks to such interesting people, from refugees, journalists, musicians, filmmakers, comedians, writers and actors.
Daniel Vitalis' podcast is a wonderful, diverse and often controversial discussion of human ecology, the effects of modern lifestyle on our bodies and minds and what our relationship with the natural world is, and is becoming. Under this canopy, the topics and guests are diverse and always fascinating. There are over 175 episodes. He announced the end of the podcast on the 21st December. Listen to the last one to get a feel for who he is and what he is about, and then pick and choose the titles that speak to you. They are always provocative and always force you to think in a slightly different way.
A wonderful podcast from NPR radio that explores the things we do unconsciously and looks into life’s unseen patterns. It questions the behaviour that drives choices, the impact these choices have in the world and the people around us and whether we have the capacity to cultivate deep attention.
Harvard business review’s podcast inspires you to ask questions about how we can do things better in business. Offering an alternative perspective of how to think about business opportunities, challenges and problems, it never fails to inspire.
High Intensity Health
The opening beat to Mike Mutzel's fab podcast gets you right in the mood to deep-dive into some super interesting topics with a mix of clinicians, researchers, PTs, & other interesting folks. One for the nerds.
Duh Duh-Duh Duh Duh Duh-Duh-Duh Duh-Duh Duuuuuuhhhh.
BBC World Service - Discovery
What would happen if you fell into a black hole? What determines left or right handedness and why are lefties in the minority? Is there any such thing as 'nothing'? What do killer whales tell us about the human menopause? Curious questions, all beautifully answered.
On Being with Krista Tippett
A great podcast for thinking about the world in a completely different way. Krista Tippett speaks to physicists, economists, activists and spiritual thinkers about what it means to be human and live a good and meaningful life.
A podcast following a father and his twin daughters when they defy convention and put away their devices and hit the road in search of answers. The best questions are always those asked by children. Funny, light-hearted but informative and a lot of questions you'd never think to ask - or get away with asking - as an adult!
