Five Podcasts Every Twenty-Something Should Be Listening To

If you are yet to jump on the podcast bandwagon, I've selected a few of my favourites to get you started. Enjoy a selection of female-led, hilarious shows, all available FOR FREE on Spotify and other podcast platforms.

1. The Boiling Point

Full to the brim with anecdotes and opinions, this is a podcast for the working gal. Uni students Hollie and Rebecka are frank about student life and the highs and lows of being in your twenties, not to mention rather funny as well! I am a little biased, as Hollie happens to be a very close friend of mine, but I firmly believe you'll love her just as much as me! For best effect pop the kettle on and listen with a steaming mug of tea.

2. Happy Place

Fearne Cotton, you are a joy to listen to. This feel-good podcast goes on when I need a bit of me time; chilling out in the bath, cosying up on the sofa, or sprawled on my bed with a 15-minute face mask. I've even bought Fearne's book, Happy, because I loved this so much. Here's my favourite episode with the lovely Emma Willis. Ladies, I have a definite girl crush on the both of you.

3. Loose Lips

Luisa Zissman and Anna Williamson are an absolute pair. Down-to-earth and unashamedly outspoken, they present a podcast that is controversial enough to fire up the snowflake in any millennial. But that's not going to stop us, is it? With rib-tickling anecdotes, furious rants and real advice from trained therapist, Anna, this is a game-changer for morning commutes.

4. The Guilty Feminist

I am guilty myself of thinking that this podcast might be too feminist for me (I know, what even?!) I was concerned it would portray the ideal activist everyone should strive to be, but it is the complete opposite. With stories from Brexit to 'that time I was in a Jehovah's Witness cult', the sheer variety of this podcast is entertainment enough. This, coupled with very relatable stories of women not feeling feminist enough, makes for a totally brilliant show.

5. This Might Get Weird

The hilarious Grace Helbig and Mamrie Hart have teamed up once more to bring us PURE HYSTERIA. Covering topics like 'How to Catfish a Cow', 'Going Spelunking' and most recently 'Stealing a Penguin', this weird n' wild 45 minute podcast is the perfect accompaniment to your mid-morning coffee!
