Podcasts have proven resilient to Covid-19. While year-on-year heavy podcast listenership has remained flat, light listenership has grown with no sign of slowing. In the US, 53.8% of podcast listeners listen at least once a week, and they've proven a highly engaged audience. With the NZ podcast market's growth in mind, we've collated our top podcast picks to get your mind buzzing with information from Sir Edmund Hillary to Certified Confidence Coach Kara Loewentheil.

No Such Thing as a Fish


This podcast is essentially a chat about fun(ny) facts. The writers of the hit BBC show, QI, discuss the best things they've found out this week. If you’re keen to learn odd bits of information that you'll probably only find useful in a pub quiz, and have a giggle, you’ll like this one too.

Stuff You Should Know


I'm an avid listener as they discuss the most random topics meaning you learn so much! One day it could be learning about space junk, the next it's about the tragedy of Titanic. It's a great way to learn something new.

Desert Island Discs


This is a chance to listen to the history behind musicians, actors, world famous scientists, authors, and doctors in their own words. Aired since 1942, and called “Desert Island Discs” as each interviewee must choose eight pieces of music, a book, and a luxury they would take to a desert island. Edmund Hilary who appeared in April 1979, chose to take Lord of the Rings as a book, a painting of the Kathmandu Valley as a luxury and 'Bridge over Troubled Water' as his favourite piece of music. Who knew!
