From Liz Hurley on My Wardrobe Malfunction to the entertaining The Reality Tea, New Scientist Weekly and RHLSTP, this week’s top podcasts
My Wardrobe Malfunction
Every week on this fun new podcast by Susannah Constantine (of Trinny fame), a guest digs into his or her relationship with their wardrobe.
The Liz Hurley interview is a good starting interview for those just getting into the My Wardrobe Malfunction podcast in which guests dig into their relationship with their wardrobe
An advisable first download is the interview with Liz Hurley, who talks in gorgeously gravelly tones about her penchant for hoarding and her fond memories of her six – yes, six – wedding dresses.
The Reality Tea
Lord Reith famously decreed that the BBC had three goals: to ‘inform, educate and entertain’. This podcast firmly does the third.
Each week, Raj Pander and Pilar Nalwimba uncover what’s happening in the world of reality TV. A recent guest was Dani Dyer (above) who unpicked what it really means to ‘live your best life’
Each week, bouncy co-hosts Raj Pander and Pilar Nalwimba uncover what’s happening in the plasticky world of reality TV. The podcast is stuffed with references to memes, TOWIE and the Kardashians, but it’s more thoughtful than it knows.
Invited stars open up about survival in the spotlight – like Dani Dyer, who recently unpicked what it actually means to ‘live your best life’.
Rubbish name aside, this interview podcast by comedian Richard Herring is one of the most addictive around. He has an unerring ability to coax from guests something that feels very like their proper self.
This interview podcast by comedian Richard Herring is one of the most addictive around: Stephen Fry (above) admitted he had attempted to take his own life during his interview
It was on this podcast, for instance, in front of a live audience, that Stephen Fry admitted he had attempted to take his own life. Herring’s questions range from the profound to the amusingly crude, and there are well over 200 episodes to binge on, so roll up your sleeves and dive in.
New Scientist Weekly
A science podcast that’s neither gobbledegook nor dumbed down. Boffins Rowan Hooper and Penny Sarchet put their PhDs to work and dig into stories from the week.
Coronavirus pops up a lot, but so do whimsical subjects such as the origins of the alphabet and whether it’s possible to cure a broken heart.
