Podcasts to help you survive 2019

For most of us January has NOT been as painstakingly slow as last year, but instead has been full on and frantic, so it’s ok if you haven’t got your shit together yet! 2019 is set to be another great year for podcasts and we’ve rounded up some of the best ones to help you feel motivated, uplifted and even just make you laugh!

Table Manners with Jessie Ware

This podcast is with musician Jessie Ware, but the REAL star of the show is Jessie’s mum Lennie. The show sees Jessie and Lennie interviewing stars from Ed Sheeran and George Ezra to Sadiq Khan and Daniel Kaluya. Half the time Lennie doesn’t know who the person is they are interviewing, which makes her line of questioning so pure and hilarious. They also talk A LOT about food, so don’t listen on an empty stomach.
