THE BEST PODCASTS FOR YOUR MORNING COMMUTE
If you follow my Instagram stories you'll know that I've really been getting into listening to podcasts on my morning (and afternoon) commute, and today I want to share my favourites. I used to be all about reading magazines on the bus, but with having to read so many things throughout the day at work, sitting back and listening is where it's at. I now even listen to them in the car instead of the radio.. and when I do ironing.. and gardening.. okay I'm obsessed. And don't worry, they're not only fashion-themed podcast, there is truly something for everyone here!
Run by uber blogger babe Camille Charriere and Fashion Journalist Monica Ainley - these girls give you a unique, behind the scenes look at how the fashion industry operates - and they're so cool and down-to-earth... what's not to love!
It's a topic that makes heaps of Australians super uncomfortable, but issues like race, racism, identity, culture and differences are vital for us to listen to, to become more socially aware.
Speaking of super uncomfortable.. try listening to this one on your commute! Okay I know it sounds like a weird podcast but its bloody hilarious, you'll be hooked!
This amazing podcast goes deep into the under-side of fashion, talking about such topics as sustainability, waste, ethics, consumerism, creativity and identity.
Garance Doré has always been one of my favourite personalities in the fashion industry and I've always loved hearing her opinions on life. In Pardon My French she speaks to a whole host of amazing people about everything fashion and lifestyle - it's a really relaxing way to start or finish your work day.
We all love Leandra Medine, and in her second podcast series (her first being Oh Boy by Man Repeller) she gets really honest about her life and drops some serious, thought-provoking truth bombs. I love how honest and inspiring her short episodes are and I hope she never stops creating them.
Stuff Mom Never Told You was the first podcast I ever listened to, from episodes entitled 'Were Mediums the First Feminists' to 'Charitable Burnout' and 'Mansplaning' - you never know what they're going to cover next. This podcast is mostly about issues to do with woman and honestly introduced you to things you never even knew to think about or parts of history you never learnt. It is truly fascinating and definitely worthwhile for anyone to listen to.
Like Stuff Mom Never Told You, this podcast (which is part of the same podcast family) has introduced me to topics such as 'How Optical Illusions Work' and taught me all about some fascinating and devastating American history - it's another podcast that introduces you to topics you had never even thought of.
Now that you have the perfect set of podcasts to get you through your commute, the only other thing you need to nail it? The perfect pair of sneaker of course! Because, I'll be honest, nothing pains my heart more than workwear and sandshoes. These are a selection of my favourites going around!
