Summer is the season of road trips, so it’s time to start putting together a playlist of podcasts to listen to on your journeys.
We’ve rounded up some STYLE Insider podcast recommendations to get you started.
MANDY MYLES – bookstore owner
Pandora Sykes’ (originally from The High Low) new solo podcast, Doing it Right, which coincides with her recent book launch. On the podcast, Sykes interviews a host of fascinating ‘experts’ about their life including hopes, dreams and anxieties. She has this wonderful ability to crack into intricacies of societal pressures and how we can potentially view them a bit differently.
GRACE WRIGHT – artist
The Lively Show. I listened to this a lot during the lockdown and really enjoy Jess Lively’s take on spirituality in a more universal context. In particular her episodes with Annie Francoeur who channels a group of non-physical entities called The Collective.
PETER TURNER – winemaker
Recent podcasts include NZ Tourism in the Post-Covid Era and the Rhythm Selection (Reggae & Funk Music Show from BFM).
KIM CROSSMAN – actor
Besides mine (ha!), I love Armchair Expert with Dax Shepard. [Crossman hosts Pretty Depressed, an unfiltered podcast series that asks people how they navigate work/life balance and mental wellbeing.]
CLARE BOWDITCH – musician
Coronacast, but I’m also just about to begin listening to the new musical comedy podcast about a fictional Christian hip-hop group called CrossBread written by Megan Washington, Declan Fay and Chris Ryan. I’ve heard it’s absolutely fabulous. [Bowditch also hosts Tame Your Inner Critic – a light-hearted guide to teach you how to bypass your self doubt and take action.]
