5 podcasts you NEED to listen to if you’re a student

By Emily Barker


Abi Gibson’s “The Colour Pink” podcast for her dissertation

  1. TED Talks Daily – This podcast gets uploaded from Mondays all through to Fridays. It features many different topics of discussion, so there is something for everyone to listen to. Episodes are very rarely over 20 minutes, so perfect for commutes into university and back.
  2. TED Radio Hour – If you love watching TED Talks on YouTube, then this podcast is for you. This podcast is simply, the audio version. It is hosted by TED, but co-hosted by NPR.
  3. Anna Faris is Unqalified – A more comedic podcast than the previous 2. Guests on this podcast include Shay Mitchell from Pretty Little Liars and Step Mothers, Macaulay Culkin from Home Alone, Brittany Snow from the Pitch Perfect films and musician Nick Jonas.
  4. StarTalk Radio – Hosted by Neil deGrasse Tyson. I personally have never listened to this podcast before, but I am going to start after it being highly recommended based on my listens on iTunes and by others. Appearing first and foremost as a science oriented podcast, this is not the case. Science topics are heavily touched upon, but include guests such as the late Stephen Hawking, politicians such as ex-President Bill Clinton and Jimmy Carter, and actors and filmmakers such as Morgan Freeman and Christopher Nolan.
  5. Yeah, But It’s Not As Simple As That – This podcast is now onto it’s third series. Topics include insomnia, integration, self care, social media and employment. It is hosted by VICE.
