This week, we’ve chosen some of our favourite podcasts to listen to whilst you’re shuffling about at home or during a quick run around the block (but 2m away from other people of course...) or looking for something self-reflective. Scroll down below to see our picks.

This week, we’ve chosen some of our favourite podcasts to listen to whilst you’re shuffling about at home or during a quick run around the block (but 2m away from other people of course...) or looking for something self-reflective. Scroll down below to see our picks.

The Pikes Podcast

If you’re a lover of the White Isle of Ibiza, or just hoping to go there in the near future, this podcast will prep you for that eventual journey to this sparkling Spanish island. It covers up-and-coming female DJs, the island’s spiritual upbringing and even lets you in exclusive party stories surrounding top DJs.

Zero To Travel

This travel podcast helps you discover new and different ways to travel the world no matter what your situation or experience is. Using community members across the world, episodes hone in on unique stories from all types of travellers across the globe. A good place to start is episode two, where founder, Jason Moore, recounts his chance encounter with some of the most accomplished hikers in the world in a small hostel in Salida, Colorado.

Women on the Road

A much-warranted podcast on life on the road from the feminist perspective. Focusing on frank conversations between women travellers who live and travel in vans, RVs, trailers, and many more moving vehicles, as well as insights from host, Laura Hughes, on her personal experiences. Episode three is a great place to start to hear about how to manage a nomadic lifestyle whilst still maintaining a home somewhere, with the first story coming from Oakland.

A New Normal

A concept many of us are grappling with at the moment, this deeply moving podcast explores the heart-wrenching audio diaries from five Syrian refugees as they attempt to lay down roots in their countries of asylum. The series comes in the form of five 30-minute entries and really lays bare the realities of refugees' lives; a story that needs to be heard and shared. A transformative listen for anyone looking to self-reflect and realign their perspective on the world. The first episode comes from Heisburg, Germany.

Trippin Podcast

Just a gentle reminder, that our newly-minted podcast series has hit Spotify, iTunes and Mixcloud. Fronted by co-founder, Yasmin, we bring in thought-leaders and tastemakers from around the world to delve deeper into their cultural scenes and ask questions that may not have been asked before. Our first episode explores the Afro-Mexican community in Costa Chica, Oaxaca with photographer and filmmaker, Darryl Richardson.

She Explores

Another powerful women-led podcast, hosted by Gale Straub, which tells stories of women who are inspired by the outdoors. Start with episode two, which looks at human-powered travel with videographer and photographer, Julie Hotz, who bike-packed from LA to Glacier National Park on to the Pacific Northwest trail and to the Pacific Ocean.

The Messenger

Another eye-opening podcast on the worldwide refugee crisis. This podcast, from Behind the Wire and The Wheeler Centre, brings you into the Australian immigration detention centre on Manus Island and intimately spotlights one man's experience of what it's really like to flee turmoil and seek asylum by boat. A podcast to remind us of our blessings.

The Lonely Hour

This podcast reminds you to take your time, enjoy it and not feel so guilty about it. A topical listen for these times, where slowing down is inevitable. The main objective of the series is to de-stigmatise loneliness and open up a space where people can talk about the joys of solitude. A great episode to tune in on is number 27, detailing the experience of Kamey Butler decided to leave New York behind and buy a one-way ticket to Cape Town. Eat, Pray, Love vibe.
