These Are the Podcasts the Bed Threads Team Will Be Binge-Listening to in May
There's nothing better than a cosy afternoon in with a cup of tea and an enthralling podcast in the background to provide you with a few laughs, some insightful facts or just relatable chats about daily life. If you're like us, you've got a podcast playing almost the entire day (even while we sleep), and we're always on the hunt for new podcasts to add to the queue. This month we're binge-listening to the following list of titles to fill our ears with inspiring talks with the most interesting people in the world.
If you're interested in how the biggest tech execs, politicians and celebrities are changing the world and the grand plans they have brewing, then you'll love Silicon Valley journalist Kara Swisher's podcast series that includes conversations with the likes of TV producer Ryan Murphy, organisational expert Adam Grant and everyone's favourite entrepreneur, Gary Vaynerchuk.
Grounded with Louis Theroux
British documentary filmmaker and journalist Louis Theroux is renowned for his many investigative series that explore hidden communities and previously taboo topics. Let's not forget that he discovered Tiger King years ago. Now, with time to kill at home, he's catching up with a list of high-profile people he's been longing to talk to.
I Catch Killers with Gary Jubelin
For everyone out there who is secretly obsessed with the crime podcast genre and is in need of a new fix, this series is equal parts horrifying and funny, as Detective Inspector Gary Jubelin catches up with fellow detectives (and the odd criminal) to reminisce on some of Australia's most terrifying murders.
Routines & Ruts
A podcast designed for creatives to be inspired by and learn from those who've found the perfect balance of life and work, Routines & Ruts is a soul-soothing series where guests such as ban.do founder Jen Goth reveal not only tips for success but also chat candidly about the inevitable stumbles that everyone makes along the way.
We weren't joking when we said we listen to podcasts all day long. To help us drift peacefully off to sleep at night, this new podcast is literally just a soothing voice that reads some of the most boring text from the internet. From terms and conditions to privacy policies, this series is oddly soothing and provides the ideal background noise for anyone who needs to quiet their mind at bedtime.
True crime fans unite. Join Australia's most formidable crime reporter John Silvester as he takes you on a journey through our country's dark underworld. These thirty-minute episodes will have you glued to your earphones as you learn the motives behind these horrible crimes as John sits down with homicide detectives and the criminals themselves to explain what happened.
We Regret To Inform You: The Rejection Podcast
While most inspirational podcasts are focused on providing you with success stories, this edgy new series is more concerned with the setbacks that some of our favourite creatives and entrepreneurs have encountered along the way and how they've bounced back. This podcast is for anyone who's looking to turn a speed bump into an opportunity for learning and growth.
Fake Doctors, Real Friends with Zach and Donald
The early 2000s were a simpler time when sit-coms ruled our TV screens. In particular, Scrubs was a comedy smash hit that launched Zach Braff and Donald Faison's careers (and friendship). Almost two decades on, the hilarious duo have sat down to record a podcast series where they provide behind the scenes stories and their favourite memories from each episode of the cult TV show.
Netflix Is A Daily Joke
Everyone could use a bit more laughter in their day, that's for sure. The team at Netflix have repurposed their huge library of comedy content into bite-size podcast episodes that feature a joke from some of the best comedians in the world. From Natasha Legero to Jerry Seinfield, tune in anytime you need a punchline pick-me-up.
