6 Podcasts to Catch Up on Right Now


The ultimate podcast about podcasts, Castaway delves into the vast world of audio instalments to bring listeners the latest on what to listen to. Presented by TV presenter Laura Whitmore, the show welcomes a celebrity guest each week – from Kelly Holmes to Jada Sezer and Dermot O’Leary – to discover what they’re listening to and why. Season two (featuring the likes of NSYNC’s Lance Bass and Niall Horan) kicks off today, but be sure to catch up on season one for top-quality podcast recommendations from Daisy Lowe and Iain Sterling, to name a few.

The High Low

This weekly podcast needs no introduction. Hosted by the warm and witty journalistic duo Dolly Alderton and Pandora Sykes, The High Low offers engrossing insight into both politics and pop-culture, and everything else in-between (namely Dolly’s long-standing fascination with Rod Stewart). Whether you want the low down on ‘Wagatha Christie’ or a deeper understanding of Alabama’s abortion ban, you’ll find all things relevant (and less so) discussed in this must-listen-to podcast. Catch up on previous episodes whilst the podcast takes its maternity leave – congrats Pandora!

Table Manners

As if we couldn’t love singer Jessie Ware anymore, then came her fabulous mum Lenny. These two are a mother-daughter match made in podcast heaven, serving up A-list guests hearty meals from their own homes on their hilarious show Table Manners. From Ed Sheeran to Charlotte Tilbury, Nigella Lawson and Sadiq Khan, there isn’t a guest that this diamond duo can’t cater to. Expect raucous laughter, some serious home cooking ‘inspo’ and a few celebrity secret reveals.

My Dad Wrote a Porno

A comedy podcast sensation, My Dad Wrote a Porno has stolen the hearts (and ears) of listeners everywhere, boasting more than 200 million downloads. The show is based on a simple premise; Jamie Morton reads his dad’s erotic novels aloud – with the help of friends Radio 1 presenter Alice Levine and digital executive James Cooper – leading to some side-splitting commentary and comical cliff hangers. Whatever will the salacious Belinda do next?

Happy Place

Having experienced her own challenges with mental health, Fearne Cotton is the ideal presenter to host a podcast about finding happiness. Speaking to a number of inspirational guests such as Elizabeth Gilbert, Emma Willis and Hillary Clinton, Fearne explores how to deal with the highs and lows life brings and how we can each discover our ‘happy place’.

House Guest Podcast

We couldn’t curate a podcast roundup without including our very own. Hosted by Country & Town House’s interiors editor Carole Annett, the House Guest Podcast introduces listeners to the crème de la crème of interior design, from Sophie Paterson to the legendary Alidad. Delight in interiors inspiration, compelling success stories and an abundance of restaurants, houses and hotels you might just have walked into yourself… The House Guest Podcast
