Are you self-isolating and looking for some new podcasts to listen to?
Whether you want to distract yourself from the scary world or keep up to date with what’s going on, here are 5 great podcasts to check out.
1. Just the Gist (PodcastOne Australia)
Just the Gist is a podcast hosted by Aussie comedian and writer Rosie Waterland, and her best friend Jacob Stanley. As the name suggests, the podcast covers the gist of what you need to know about a range of random topics. The podcast started just last year and has covered the most recent season of the Australian Bachelor and Bachelorette reality series, the wives of Henry VIII, the CATS plot, the Titanic and many other random topics of Rosie’s choosing. Rosie and Jacob have a hilarious dynamic that will leave you in stitches and you’ll probably learn something new.
This podcast is a great one to distract you from the C-word… just avoid the recent episode on the Spanish flu.
Recommended episode: Episode 24 – “Titanic”. Rosie is a bit of a Titanic super-nerd and gives an insightful recap of the unsinkable ship that sunk.
