If you're like me and you have an insanely short attention span, then you'll probably have also discovered podcasts as your new, multitasking, best friend. And if you haven't, then why haven't you? I'm horrifically bad at just doing one thing at once. If I'm doing my hair or makeup in the morning, I used to always have Netflix playing in the background as well as my cup of tea and social media open on my phone in front of me. Watching TV in the background is great, but kind of annoying when you're having to watch it out of the corner of your eye. Cue podcasts: my BFF when it comes to driving long journeys, commuting on the train and getting ready in the morning. I've tried listening to a lot of podcasts to keep me going, but these are the ones which I always come back to.

What's The Tee
What's the Tee is RuPaul and Michelle Visage's podcast, and it's probably my favourite podcast to listen to at the moment. I. am. obsessed. I only started listening to this one recently (after binge watching every episode of Drag Race three times and desperately needing something else to feel the void), which is amazing because it means I have years worth of episodes to catch up on. What's the Tee has a celebrity guest each week and they Ru, Michelle and their guest will discuss absolutely everything and anything. It's intelligent, heartfelt and so so funny. I've found myself laughing out loud in the car on my own while listening to it too many times to count!

The Minimalists
I decided to give this podcast a listen after watching The Minimalists documentary on Netflix and I love all of the ideas which creators Joshua Fields Millburn and Ryan Nicodemus share. The whole idea of The Minimalists podcasts is how to get more from life with less material possessions around you. For someone like me, who spends a lot of time scrolling through blogs and my Instagram feed which all have a big focus on 'stuff', this podcast often serves as a really great reminder to me at how much more there is to life.

The Guilty Feminist
From what I've gathered, The Guilty Feminist is a firm blogger favourite. It took me a while to actually get started on this one, but after seeing a lot of people talking about it on my social feeds, I decided to give it a go. The Guilty Feminist is a brilliant comedy podcast hosted by Deborah Frances-White. She invites plenty of guests on the show to help her discuss the perils of being a modern day feminist and all of the baggage that comes with it. This podcast is hilarious and thought provoking all at once. I think it's an essential listen for any 21st century girl who wants to feel a little more understood.

Banging Book Club
Of course, I had to add a podcast on books into the mix. 1. because there really don't seem to be enough of them going about at the moment. 2. because it's hosted by a few of the most creative ladies on the internet. Banging Book Club is hosted by Youtubers Lucy Moon, Hannah Witton and Leena Norms. Each show is usually an in depth review of a single book, a discussion with an author or just general conversation about a single subject. What I love most about the Banging Book Club podcasts is that they don't shy away from the more complex subjects, with many of their episodes focusing on sex, feminism and gender in literature.
