Summer Podcast Hotlist

16th August 2017

What to listen to to give your brain and wellbeing a boost…

The rise in popularity of podcasts continues and we can understand why. Essentially radio programmes that you can download to your phone and listen to at your convenience, they have revolutionised audio. So much so that there’s now a bitesize, episode-by-episode podcast about pretty much everything. Which means it’s hard to pick which ones to listen to – the sheer amount of choice can lead to indecision.

So we trawled the internet and iTunes for you to find out which podcasts – thanks to big ideas, engaging presentation and brilliant execution – will keep you tuning in. Here’s what team ELEMIS have subscribed to for the summer ahead…

Nutrition Diva’s Quick and Dirty Tips for Eating Well and Feeling Fabulous

As our thoughts turn to getting into our bikinis, we tend to focus more on eating well and getting in shape. But while sticking to a specific diet can prove to be a full-time job, we prefer nutritionist and author, Monica Reinagel’s no nonsense advice for enhancing your food knowledge and eating in balance. Available in episodes of around 10 minutes each, we love that Monica covers issues such as Is your metabolism to blame? Coconut milk versus cow’s milk and Diet soda and dementia. Available on iTunes

Podrunner

Speaking of getting in shape, this one’s for anyone who’s ever got heartily sick of listening to the same tracks over and over again while working out. Created by DJ Steve Boyett, these one-hour long mixes of electronic dance music are set at a specific tempo or beats per minute (BPM) to match the type of exercise you’re doing – whether it’s power walking, sprinting or some form of circuit training. Each one is uninterrupted (so no annoying adverts) and will help you feel energised while motivating you to keep going when you start to feel the burn. Available on iTunes.

The Minimalists

Much more than simply motivation to declutter your house, wardrobe or even head, this podcast is part of a bigger movement that’s based on the premise that life is not just about owning fewer material objects – it’s about making space for more of the joys of life. Created by two former city boys who gave up huge salaries and lots of “stuff” to seek a happier, more fulfilling life, we love that it covers everything from Hoarding, Shopping, and Overwhelm. Available on iTunes.

The Beauty Brains

So many products, so many questions: We understand that the beauty industry is big, fast-moving, and that it’s hard to keep up. Offering independent, expert advice from two cosmetic scientists who have been actively involved in developing products for some of the largest beauty companies in the world, it aims to debunk myths, cut the jargon and read between the lines of the hype. Check out the fascinating Are superfoods good for your skin? How to test a beauty product yourself and Can you cure cellulite with coffee grounds? Free at www.thebeautybrains.com

You Must Remember This

Sometimes a little escapism is all we need to feel less stressed and happier overall. Cue this incredible podcast, created by L.A. film critic Karina Longworth. You Must Remember This delves into the forgotten stories of Hollywood’s first century. At around 40 minutes per episode, it’s a great one for a long walk or car journey. All you have to do is zone out and lose yourself in compelling tales about the lives of Marilyn Monroe, Joan Crawford, Elizabeth Taylor and Isabella Rossellini www.youmustrememberthispodcast.com
