5 podcast to keep you company in self-isolation
In recent years podcasts have become extremely popular. They’ve allowed influential personalities to really open up on a platform where there are no rules. This way of communicating is an outlet for people in the public eye (or not) to dig deep and give their true perspective on any subject their heart desires in an authentic way. As we have so much time on our hands recently and the media has become information overload we wanted to introduce you to some podcasts that may lighten your mood or teach you something new. So here are our top five to keep you inspired, laughing and stimulated while taking time out for yourself!
‘Underneath the Skin’ with Russell Brand.
Russel Brand is famous for his comedic past and TV personality however due to his turbulent life experiences and battle with addiction over the years he has become an advocate for helping the wider community overcome their own problems whatever they may be. ‘Underneath the Skin’ is a great podcast in which Russell interviews many well known people who have achieved astounding things in their careers.

‘Happy Place’ with Ferne Cotton
‘Happy Place’ was born after the release of Ferne’s very successful book ‘Happy’ in which she talks about her battle with depression. Whilst writing the book and interviewing a number of people she thought it only made sense to create a podcast and bring the interviews to life. Her first guest was Dawn French for whom she travelled to Cornwall to film the conversation and once she had the comedy legend herself on board, other people were chopping at the bits for a slot. For an honest conversation full of Dawn’s wisdom and her journey on how she became the confident, successful woman she is today, have a listen: https://player.fm/series/happy-place/dawn-french
