Pick of the Podcasts: The Adam Buxton Podcast, The Morning After and Beyond Today

The Adam Buxton Podcast

(Apple Podcasts, Spotify)

There are thousands and thousands of podcasts out there – but not all make it very far.

To get to the century mark is quite the achievement when it comes to having a successful pod, and Adam Buxton will hit that mark over the next few weeks.

The Adam Buxton Podcast won’t get any awards for originality when it comes to the title, but his light-hearted chats with celebrity guests have earned the show a few honours.

Since it began in 2015, his show has landed Best Online Comedy Talk Show at the Online Radio Awards, Podcast Champion at the British Podcast Awards, and the Internet Award from comedy guru site Chortle.

Guests such as Louis Theroux, Michael Palin, Caitlin Moran, Kathy Burke, Charlie Brooker, and Paul Whitehouse have all turned up over the past couple of years for a chinwag.

Adam used to be one half of comedy duo which produced The Adam and Joe Show, but the surreal humour has largely been dropped for these more relaxed conversations which tend to take place in the Norfolk countryside.

“It doesn’t take long to get into the mind of the person or people making that podcast and they kind of become your friend,” explained Adam.

“It is a weird thing, because it offers you the opportunity to form a close, meaningful, although one-way, relationship with another person.

“You let them into your life and they occupy your thoughts and you get into their humour, or they may wind you up.”

The Morning After

(Apple Podcasts, Spotify, Google Play Store)

Don’t be ashamed – we know you can’t get enough of Love Island.

This is the show’s official companion podcast. Hosted by series three winner, Kem Cetinay, alongside Arielle Free, the podcast dissects the drama from the previous night’s episode, sharing thoughts about your favourite islanders.

Beyond Today

(Apple Podcasts, BBC Sounds)

With a new episode each weekday, this BBC Radio 4 podcast delves into one big question from the week’s news, from “What does porn tell us about hypocrisy?” to “Would celebrities make better politicians?” and “How ethical is true crime?”

Beyond Today certainly makes you think past the headlines.

You don’t always get a definitive answer in each episode, but you at least seem to gain a fresh perspective.
