Top Five Podcasts

Summer is underway, and with summer comes road trips and travelling.

Let’s be honest, folks. Long car rides are the worst. You are stuck in a small enclosed vehicle for hours at a time. On top of that, they can get very dull quickly. Thankfully, I have found five great podcasts that will keep you entertained on the road.


This is perhaps the most popular podcast on this list, for a good reason.

Hosted by Total Biscuit with regular co-hosts Dodger and Jesse Cox and other guests, the gang discuss games, new releases and news and have a laugh while doing it.

This podcast is great for long journeys as each episode is around three hours long.

314613Serial Killers

If you love True Crime as much as I do then you will love this.

Serial Killers is a weekly podcast hosted by Greg Polcyn and Vanessa Richardson. The pair talks about infamous serial killers throughout history as well as taking an in-depth look into their minds and motives.

This podcast is certainly a good way to kill time. Sorry, couldn’t resist.

2386f112d9ba0f0c6aa7cd499d2cdc36The Anime Show with Joey & AkiDearest

Love Anime? Good, then this is the podcast for you.

Two popular Anime YouTubers, Joey AKA The Anime Man and AkiDearest host this podcast filled with Anime, Otaku News and Japanese culture. On top of that, they often give recommendations.

If you like these YouTubers, I am sure you will like their podcast.

1200x630bbSimon Mayo’s Confessions

Trust me, these stories are hilarious.

For my non-UK readers, firstly hi, thanks for reading! and secondly, there is a radio station called BBC Radio 2 which is home to a weekly segment in which people email the host Simon Mayo Confessions of a ridiculous nature which he reads on air and listeners text in to say if they forgive the person or not.

Recently, I discovered that they now have a podcast version. In each episode, there are four confessions instead of just one and it doesn’t have viewer feedback.

If you want to hear some unforgettable stories, then I highly recommend you check out this podcast.

61zpMObMs5LHitchhiker’s Guide to the Galaxy

Ok, I am kinda cheating here.

Before the book series, The Hitchhiker’s Guide to the Galaxy was a BBC Radio 4 Radio Play. While looking through my podcast app I found this play and started listening.

It is a fantastic play that I love to bits. Even if you haven’t read the books if you love SciFi and bizarre comedy you will get a kick out of this play.
