The MiNDFOOD team recommends their favourite podcasts

The Daily by The New York Times

ASHLEY WALLACE, Staff Writer

What’s it about?
This New York Times podcast breaks down the biggest news story of the day by interviewing the newspaper’s reporter covering the issue.

What did you like about it? Why would you recommend it to someone?
I’m obsessed with this podcast! It’s my favourite way to start the day. Each episode analyses a news story and explains the context of it in a way that everyone can understand.

I find that when an episode covers an issue I wouldn’t think I’d be interested in, it often ends up being one of the most captivating stories. It also makes you really appreciate the time and effort that goes into quality investigative journalism. Each episode only lasts around 30 minutes, which is a big drawcard for me.

Three words to describe it:
Fascinating, educational, addictive.

 

Shameless by Zara McDonald and Michelle Andrews

LILLIAN MCHUGH, Integration Director

What’s it about?
It’s hard to beat the podcast’s own tagline – “The pop culture podcast for smart women who love dumb stuff”

What did you like about it? Why would you recommend it to someone?
It’s a podcast removing the guilt from your guilty pleasure. Melbourne journalists Zara McDonald and Michelle Andrews discuss the biggest pop culture stories of the week and consider their significance in the wider social context.

With its episodes released on a Monday, it’s something light-hearted to look forward to at the start of the week. They also drop an “In Conversation” episode every Thursday, where they interview someone inspiring or interesting.

Three words to describe it:
Funny, frank, and a conversation starter (more than three words but oh well).

 

Heavyweight by Gimlet

KATHRYN CHUNG, Staff Writer

What’s it about?
In each episode, host Jonathan Goldstein helps someone resolve a thing in their past that’s been weighing on them.

What did you like about it? Why would you recommend it to someone?
It’s funny, irreverent and surprisingly very moving. You never know where each episode is headed and the journey is so enjoyable.

One of my favourite episodes is one where two old men mend their friendship, ending with a touching poem one wrote for the other.

Three words to describe it:
Story-driven, quirky, unexpectedly touching.
