1. The Receipts Podcast


A fun, relatable and honest podcast particularly aimed at the ladies. Discussing your dilemmas, issues and hot topics of today 'The Receipts Podcast' is the unfiltered girl talk that you need in your life. From boys to everyday life experiences, the three ladies; Milena, Tolly and Audrey, provide honest sisterly advice we need to hear when times get tough. From giggles to tears the podcast will have you returning every Wednesday to hear what they've got to say. One of the best podcasts to date.

2. 3ShotsOfTequila


I would describe this podcast as the male version of The Receipts Podcast. A fun and light hearted podcast with hosts Marvin, Keith and Tazer, mimicking the unfiltered conversations you have at pre drinks. Covering everything from sex, relationships, religion and hot topics infiltrating your timelines, the podcast provides boy's banter that will leave you in stitches with no limits. From reading your dilemma's and telling you as it is, to grilling each other on the podcast, it's the podcast to tune into every week.

3. Off Menu with Ed Gamble and James Acaster


Here for a laugh. The two comedians invite special quests into their magical restaurant to choose their favourite 4 course meal. Mentioning a range of restaurants across the country, the podcast covers a range of cuisines that will have your stomach grumbling. Great for food inspiration when you want to take a break from the ready meals you've been eating for the past week and fancy treating yourself. It's time to order Off Menu!

4. Casefile True Crime


Fancy freaking yourself out or learning more about criminal cases? The scripted and narrative podcast hosted by an Australian man who remains annonymous, covers solved and cold criminal cases, mostly dealing with murder cases and serial crimes. Earlier episodes focus on Australian related cases but crimes from the UK and USA are inceasingly discussed. Great for those who love a bit of a scare, remember fact is scarier than fiction. 

5. Stuff You Should Know


An award-winning podcast dates back to its first release in 2008. Discussing your burning questions about the world like 'How Ironman Triathlons work' and the 'Worst Smell Ever' Josh Clark and Charles Bryant have you covered. Grow your knowledge on the go, on your commute to uni or in the comfort of your halls, wherever you are they'll have something that tickles your curiousity.
