Getting Back Into Podcasts


A good few years ago I was hooked on Podcasts, but one day that all stopped and to be honest I really dont know why.

I used to listen to many daily, then I moved to watching some of them on YouTube and then gradually I wasnt subscribed to any podcasts.

With lockdown I decided to take a look at what is out there, and see if I can get my podcast app full again.

Plus podcasts can be a good distraction.

My Podcast App

I am on iOS so my main podcast app is the default one that is on my iPhone, I have tried a few but none so far has had that extra something to get me to move….maybe one day I will find a better one or just stick with the default app.

My Subscriptions

I did notice on my Instagram feed that there were two new podcasts coming soon, and they were to do with not drinking alcohol. I decided to add them and wait till episode 1 for both were released.

This is my start back into podcasts, if I find any others I will do a second blog, but please feel free to tell me what you listen to if you think I would like it.

Booze Break

The Booze Break Podcast is a diary of my journey taking a break from alcohol as well as looking into the different ways to help sustain a break from the booze!

I have not got any alcohol issues, I dont drink much the odd beer throughout the month sometime zero alcohol.

I spotted this on my Instagram feed, I am not sure If it was an ad, I followed them or Booze Break followed me…..anyway…I subscribed and started listening.

After a few weeks I have continued to subscribe and listen, and really enjoy it and promote it a little on my Instagram as its definitely worth a listen.

If you have had or currently feel you need a break from alcohol, or fancy something different to listen to check this out.

Non Alcoholic Bible

Every week on the Non Alcoholic Bible podcast, husband and wife Tim and Caz try a non-alcoholic drink and tell you what they think.

This was another podcast I am not sure how I came across, but I am glad I did.

Just like Booze Break Podcast this is a very enjoyable listen, they have recently (at time of typing this) been giving you some ideas for non alcoholic cocktails etc which I will try at some point soon.

If you fancy a change of life style or something different to listen to check this out.

Scott Mills Daily

Scott & Chris entertain the nation โ€“ The podcast that walks the line between the funny, awkward and outrageous.

This one I listen to on my morning drive to work, its loaded with laughs from start to end and Scott is a legend.

Need a laugh to start your day? then this is the podcast for you.

Shagged Married Annoyed

The only way Rosie and Chris Ramsey can have a conversation without being interrupted by a toddler or ending up staring at their phones is by doing a podcast.

I have only started to get into this podcast, as I saw a few people on my Instagram feed already big fans of this show.

So far for me I am 50/50 I think I need to listen to a few more episodes to fully decide.

This podcast has won a few awards, so give it a shot it might just click with you ๐Ÿ™‚

Waveform

A tech podcast for the gadget lovers and tech heads among us from the mind of Marques Brownlee, better known as MKBHD. MKBHD has made a name for himself on YouTube reviewing everything from the newest smartphones to cameras to electric cars.

I like my teck news and this guy brings it! he gives just enough detail, and doesnt overload you which is great.

He is always keeping me up o date with whats happening in this area, if your a tech fan you should subscribe.

Capital Breakfast

Every Friday Roman Kemp, Sian Welby and Sonny Jay are bringing you guests, pranks and waffle.

Just like the Scott Mills daily podcast, this was another one I used to listen to all the time.

Its not a easy or humorous as Scott Mills, but it does give you some laughs some news basically a good mix of everything.

Blackout, Gaslight & Carrier

Academy Awardยฎ winner Rami Malek stars in this apocalyptic thriller as a small-town radio DJ fighting to protect his family and community after the power grid goes down nationwide, upending modern civilization.

I put these three podcasts together, as they are all basically the same style. They are like mini audio books that are short episodes and very cool to listen to.

Blackout was my favourite as it had Rami Malek and the voice acting was amazing and the story very interesting.

Check all these out as they are great stories!!

IOS Today

Leo Laporte and Mikah Sargent love their iPhones, iPads, and Apple Watches so much they’re hosting iOS Today, the TWiT network’s first show highlighting the best apps, most helpful tools, coolest tricks, and essential news surrounding iOS

I followed this show to ages ago, then moved to watching it on YouTube but recently not had time to watch all my videos on YouTube.

I love Leo he is a great guy and great host, and he gives you a great show every time.

If you want to know about whats happening with iOS or other news related to it like apps etc this is a MUST!! for you to subscribe to.

Alcohol Free Life

Have you quit the booze? Thinking about reducing your alcohol intake? We aim to bring you tips, advice and motivation and importantly we want to celebrate self-care in sobriet

This is another new one on my list, I have heard great things about this show.

The level of detail in this show is amazing, it makes you want to listen from start to end. Its very informative and an enjoyable listen.
