1. The School of Greatness with Lewis Howes

This former professional athlete now interviews successful people to find out how they made it to the top. Millionaire business owners, social media superstars, best-selling authors, famous actors… they all share their stories and the strategies that enabled them to achieve greatness. Each episode is packed with ideas and insights you can use to take your own results to the next level. We highly recommend it

2. This American Life

Yeah, it’s been around for ages but This American Life is an amazing podcast that never fails to make us laugh, cry or gasp in horror! Each episode brings together people’s stories and links them to a bigger theme. It’s always surprising and is packed full of ordinary people who have done amazing things.

3. Aim A Little Higher

This British podcast is a mix of interviews, information and Q&A sessions aimed at motivating young people to… well, as the name suggests, aim a little higher! Recent episodes have looked at personal branding, what to do after GCSEs and building a positive mindset. Awesome inspiration-builders from good ol’ Blighty.

4. Stuff You Should Know

Ever wondered how the Great Wall of China was built, or why freak shows died out, or who Anonymous really is? Then you need to listen to Stuff You Should Know. Guaranteed you’ll come away with loads of meaningful facts to impress your mates, mum and dad. *Cue open mouths at the dinner table*.

5. Scroobius Pip’s Distraction Pieces

Master of words, king of UK hip hop Scroobius Pip interviews people as random as Simon Pegg, Russell Brand and WWE wrestler Chris Jericho. It’s not a quick listen but you’ll hear some fascinating conversations on big issues that will stretch your thinking further than you thought possible.

6. TED Talks Podcasts

Whether you’re interested in technology, art, sport, politics, education or entertainment, there’s a TED Talk for you. We especially like the father and daughter beat-boxing demonstration!

There’s also the Ted Radio Hour, which brings together several TED Talks on similar themes: https://itunes.apple.com/us/podcast/npr-ted-radio-hour-podcast/id523121474?mt=2

8. How To Do Everything

Similar to Stuff You Should Know, How To Do Everything unpicks some of life’s more everyday challenges, like how to leave or send a message, and a guide to destroying drones. Random, granted, but you need to know this stuff… really.

9. Tough Girl Podcast

10. Answer Me This

Another classic UK podcast that’s been running since 2007. Ollie and Helen answer listeners’ questions on everything from Gogglebox to selfie stick death. It’s informative, funny, and well worth a listen. Great background chat when you’re hanging out with friends too.
