If the magazine era of the early 00’s had to assume a new form, we’re pretty confident saying that the humble podcast has taken the reins as the go-to medium for our content consumption.
Whether you’re a total crime junkie, pop culture obsessed or you get around all things business and career tips, there’s a little something for everyone.
Here at the VG office, we’re always gushing to each other over the latest podcasts we’re listening to - so we thought we’d wrap up a few of our faves and share them with you!
Here’s the line up of must-listens for your next car ride or morning walk. Enjoy!
I love true crime stories & Crime Junkie has hundreds of stories from around the world in relation to missing people, mysteries & solved crimes.
My Millennial Career - so good for career/business-related tips. They cover everything from how to prepare for an interview to how to approach asking for a pay rise. They also interview some really interesting people.
Outrageously wild stories from one of Tiktoks best - GKBarry. The type of podcast you have to pause because you're laughing too hard.
The Cutting Room Floor
Designer Recho Omondi chats to others in the fashion industry about what they do and what their experience in the industry has been like. It's always so interesting to hear different people's perspectives and what they have experienced to get to their current position.
After Work Drinks
Two female journalists from Australia/New Zealand and living in London talk candidly about topical subjects ei. fashion, pop culture, mental health, and newsy stuff! What I love about this podcast is you can really tell they are good friends and they definitely let you in on what's happening in their life! It feels super personal!
SmartLess - by Jason Bateman, Will Arnett and Sean Hayes
If you're after a good laugh I definitely recommend SmartLess! Jason, Will and Sean have been best friends for years and chat to a variety of celebrity guests and each week the guest is a surprise to two of the hosts. Some episodes I loved were "Jennifer Aniston", "Will Ferrell" and "Judd Apatow".
It’s all in the tagline! Pop culture podcast for smart people who love dumb stuff. Mich & Zara are two Melbourne writers who analyse the latest in pop culture and deep dive into the celeb scandals of the past. If you haven’t listened to this pod before - you have to!
