I'm not the biggest fan of TV, other than the occasional box set or reality TV, and much prefer to listen to podcasts. I spend upwards of two hours per day commuting, and really enjoy the time because it means I get to catch up on all my favourite podcasts. A lot of the podcasts I've discovered have been through the recommendations of others, so I thought I would share my favourites here for any other podcast fans.

(Any podcast descriptions are taken directly from the podcast websites, as linked).

(NB: This is a work in progress...!)


Criminal - "Criminal is a podcast about crime: stories of people who've done wrong, been wronged, or gotten caught somewhere in the middle." 

Ear Hustle - "Ear Hustle brings you the stories of life inside prison, shared and produced by those living it. The podcast is a partnership between Earlonne Woods and Antwan Williams, currently incarcerated at San Quentin State Prison, and Nigel Poor, a Bay Area artist. The team works in San Quentin’s media lab to produce stories that are sometimes difficult, often funny and always honest, offering a nuanced view of people living within the American prison system."

Serial - "It's Baltimore, 1999. Hae Min Lee, a popular high-school senior, disappears after school one day. Six weeks later detectives arrest her classmate and ex-boyfriend, Adnan Syed, for her murder. He says he's innocent - though he can't exactly remember what he was doing on that January afternoon. But someone can. A classmate at Woodlawn High School says she knows where Adnan was. The trouble is, she’s nowhere to be found."

Sword and Scale - "Sword and Scale, which debuted in 2013, covers the underworld of criminal activity and the demented minds that perform the most despicable and unthinkable actions."
