Time to escape with a podcast!

Lockdown has seen the exponential rise of Podcast Power! When you’ve zoned out of Zoom, escape to your own audio bubble and secretly indulge to your heart’s content. The SN Team divulge their favourites…


The Rugby Pod is a bit like sitting in the pub with your rugby expert friends and discussing everything to do with the game. Lots of banter and fun, hosted by Andy Goode and with rugby legends, so lots of interesting insight into the decisions made on and off the pitch.


Various individual’s personal experience and connection to one piece of music … often emotive and always thought provoking, you’ll never listen to the song in the same way again!


All the episodes are great but this one particularly stands out – Childhood as a Mountbatten; Lions, Coatimundis, Bears and being left in Budapest…

THE HIGH LOW by Pandora Sykes and Dolly Alderton 

Such a funny and light hearted podcast that delves into current trends and affairs, stories in the media and so much more. What I love is the section in each podcast that looks at their top reading recommendations.


Brilliant – amazing story of a journalist tracking down and interviewing a Canadian ISIS recruit – stories of how he was brainwashed, the horrors of life as an ISIS soldier and how he eventually found his way home.


Started in lockdown as he couldn’t do his normal documentaries. Now onto series 2. He manages to get to the real person – both their light and dark sides. He’s done his homework and gets to the nitty gritty. FKA twigs is enthralling.


This 8-part series follows the real life spooky goings-on of one of Britain’s most famous hauntings and is definitely not for the faint- hearted! It’ll make you question whether the supernatural is real… Probably best not to listen to just before you go to sleep!

HAPPY PLACE – Fearne Cotton

Feel good, inclusive and inspirational. A nice escape on my lunch time walks. Hilariously covers life before pregnancy, during childbirth and beyond with actors, comedians and parents alike.


A fascinating biographical series where guests choose someone who has inspired them. Good hearted and funny – find out about the amazing lives of a broad range of people. My favourite so far Bill Bailey on his hero Alfred Russel Wallace!
