I have recently dipped my toe into the ocean of podcasts- late to the party I know! They have transformed my commutes and made those mundane tasks at work bearable.
Has anyone stumbled across podcast series/ episodes that they absolutely loved?
All The Best – Australian story telling – ‘What Keeps Me Up At Night’ episode
Mystery Show – Solves mysteries that the internet can’t – ‘Belt Buckle’ episode
How To Be a Girl – A mum’s life with her transgender daughter
Curious to know if there are any sex/health/relationship podcasts out there? 🙂
I’ll check them out!
‘My Dad Wrote a Porno’ is sooooo good. Would not recommend listening to it while on the train though – have laughed out loud quite a few times!! It’s a son and his friends reading out an erotic novel his Dad has written and it’s just super cringe-y and badly written ahaha
I’d be keen to find some (accurate) sex/health/relationship podcasts too!
@peachy That sounds hilarious! Actually a few of my friends have recommended that one and they even went to their show when they toured Australia recently. Definitely on the list! Thanks.
I’m keen to check these out too! thanks for starting this discussion @TinyTeddy !
The Heart is an awesome super-feministy podcast with heaps of sexual health and sexuality related episodes 🙂
Also The Hook Up with Hannah Reilly is a show on Triple J on Sunday Nights (? I think?) about sexual health which there is a podcast for. Its pretty funny and super positive, I highly recommend both The Heart and The Hook Up podcasts!
I can second @peachy for My Dad Wrote A Porno. Hilarious stuff, I actually saw them live when they toured their show in Australia recently.
My other favourites are:
Oh my goshhhh Yes @MintMilano ! I forgot about Dan Savage! Can also recommend Savage Lovecast <3
I also am getting heavy into podcasts at the moment! They are actually helping me to exercise 🙂
Firstly would recommend- The Prude and the Pornstar- it’s on the Mamamia Women’s Network podcast channel and it is fascinating!! I learned a lot of from this about different kinds of relationship and fetishes etc.
Also ‘Dear Sugar’- a conversation with the gorgeous author Cheryl Strayed and Steve Almond. It is a compassionate and in depth exploration of relationship, emotion, life- it is joyful and respectful with cheesy love music thrown in!!
I LOVE the My Dad Wrote A Porno podcast and also went to the live show @MintMilano 🙂 Rocky’s concept of female anatomy is waaaaay wrong, but I do love how Belinda just sleeps with whoever she wants and there is no big statement about her sexual orientation! Also I freaking live for James’ laugh!
I’m not sure of other sex-related podcasts but I adore history and folklore stuff. My faves are Lore, Myths & Legends, Revisionist History and You Must Remember This.
@ElleBelle I’ve always thought that too! There’s lots of sexual fluidity going on there and it’s all very sex positive, if anatomically incorrect 😀 I love Alice’s laugh too, and I’ve also found myself saying “Not a thing” in the middle of a conversation where I disagree with someone.
So many good suggestions to get onto there though, I definitely don’t have enough hours in the day! I’d be curious to know when people actually get the time (or make the time) to listen to their favourite podcasts? I used to listen before bed, but I found myself falling asleep and missing too much! So now I try to catch up on my podcasts whenever I take the time to unwind in a nice hot bath.
These are all such great recommendations! Need to get onto the My Dad Wrote A Porno bandwagon 🙂
@MintMilano so many to check out but so little time. I usually like to listen to podcasts on my work commute. Or binge listen on a road trip.
@TinyTeddy ah yeah, work commuting seems to make the most sense. I have an extremely short work commute, which I love, but now I see it limits my podcast listening time!
Ohh these sound amazing!!
