I am a recent podcast convert.
I listened to a lot of music in my youth – but my passion for that has run it’s course. I dabbled in audio books – but found a rifled through them at a rate that became somewhat expensive… So the obvious course of action was to do a little research into the world of podcasts!
When I first started searching out podcasts to listen to, I found it hard to find anything I liked… I have put that down to my short attention span, coupled with my android device. Life with my iPhone has been easier. ( No that’s not open for debate. You love your device and I’ll love mine. )
So – just incase you are in the same place as me & fancy exploring the world of podcasts, I have compiled a handy list for you. These podcasts are mainly aimed at my fellow food fanatics, along with creatives & a few random ones thrown in for good measure! Podcasts for foodies and creatives ♥
I’m eagerly awaiting the new series of comedian Bella Younger’s Deliciously Stella podcast. If you are feeling over whelmed by the thousand and one people popping up on your Instagram feed instructing you how to #gettheglow, then spend an indulgent 1/2 hour or so listening to Bella. Not only is it a right giggle, but she also bring some REAL LIFE EXPERTS in on the chat. Lots of fun, and gently informative. #winwin

Favourite Listen – Episode 17 – Bella chats to nutrition consultant Kate Arnold about VEGA machines and the myths on sugar alternatives.
A Playful Day
Just as I compile this post Season 3 of A Playful Day has popped up in my feed! Kate’s podcast is like pulling up a chair with friends. Friends who craft, create, explore and unwind together. This is the podcast I go to when I wanna unwind in the company of someone who thinks like me – or at least how I wanna think 😝

The Food Chain
BBC World Service is a great resource for all your informative podcast needs. There are bucket loads of good options, but if I was you I would start with the Food Chain. Rammed full of facts, yet still entertaining. Great for picking up facts and figures to annoy your friends with over dinner!

Favourite Listen – Food on the Open Road
It took me a while to locate a ‘blog’ themed podcast that wasn’t too heavy – and was based a little closer to home than the U.S. Kat Molesworth filled that gap with her jolly, yet informative snippets. She chats to people who have made an impact online, and they let us in on their tips and tricks. She also answers viewers questions – which can often be very helpful. Don’t forget you can email in your questions too!
