Are you even living in 2023 if you haven’t said (or heard), “So I was listening to this podcast…” at least once a week? Because there can never be too many podcasts on your to-listen list, here are some more to queue up. The following collection is the result of an epic 2Stories Slack thread (some of it redacted) where we gushed over our favourites at the moment. It’s by no means a definitive list, but there should be something here for anyone at any moment. Happy listening!

Anelia Gates – senior art director


Great for unwinding and some laughs. If you're a fan of Arrested Development, you'll enjoy and appreciate it.

Thando Ndlovu – community manager

99% Invisible

One of the best podcasts to ever exist, in my humble opinion. It's an exploration of the process and power of design and architecture, the details in our built environment we never really notice until you listen to a podcast episode about it. It's great for household tasks and driving.

Shaznay Henney – account manager

The Diary of a CEO by Steven Bartlett

Love it because Steven is just such an incredible interviewer who asks such great questions. It’s unfiltered, and I love the way that the guests end up telling their success stories. I listen whilst working or running errands.

Michelle Jacka – art director

Where Should We Begin? with Esther Perel

The famous relationship therapist has sessions with couples; you are able to listen to them and her advice.

Shereen Goosen – copy editor

How I Built This

All about how some of the biggest businesses started out, with interviews with their founders. The hustle and heart that went into them, how they came up with the idea, developed it, and eventually became a success.

Stephen Dubner is an excellent host.

Also very cool – a lot like 99% Invisible.

No Such Thing as a Fish

Four hilarious people discussing whacky/interesting facts unearthed for the week.

Everything is Alive

An unscripted interview show in which all the subjects are inanimate objects. In each episode, a different thing tells us its life story – and everything it says is true.

Jo Hope – co-founder and chief operating officer

The Witch Trials of J.K. Rowling

Fantastic so far.

Jordyn Toohey – junior producer

The New Music Business with Ari Herstand

History This Week

For all the history nerds out there, a new episode every week highlighting something that happened in history that week. Excellent production value.


Radio 4 series about lots of different topics, always interesting and quite quirky.


Bloomberg series that profiles different stories in the tech world. Brilliant reporting, similar to Land of the Giants, which is also fun.


Quirky storytelling.
