We love a great podcast here at Home Grown for being insightful, entertaining and making a London commute a little more bearable. This month, we asked our Sales and Marketing team about a few of their favourite podcasts. Check out their recommendations below.

Claire, Sales & Marketing Director

I love Happy Place with Fearne Cotton, who speaks to lots of incredible people about what truly makes them happy. She’s a fantastic interviewer and her style of conversation is really gentle and easy to follow. 

Damien, Head of Creative

Design Matters is by American writer, Debbie Millman where she interviews design leaders, educators and thinkers. The research Debbie does is incredibly impressive. I always get a sense that she’s found something out that the interviewee didn’t even remember themselves.

Alex, Marketing & PR Manager

I loved Paradise, a BBC 5 Live podcast investigating the murders of a British couple in the Caribbean. I’m a real true-crime junkie, and the reporting in this podcast is very heartfelt and sincere. It’s fascinating to track the case for almost 40 years and see what might have happened if certain mistakes weren’t made.

Claire, Sales & Marketing Director

My top pick is The Chernobyl Podcast, the official accompanying podcast to the hit TV show. This podcast is a much deeper look at what actually happened during that time. I find the personal stories of the people involved so fascinating and so much more complex than what we all think we know about Chernobyl.

Freddie, Members' Events Manager

Under The Skin with Russell Brand is a hilarious listen. Russell really gets to the heart of what’s going on in his guests' lives. There’s a real range of people on here and they talk about slightly unusual and spiritual things, which I love. 

Alex, Marketing & PR Manager

My other pick is The Daily, a daily news roundup from The New York Times, telling key news stories in 20 minutes. It’s a really easy and engaging way to stay informed. They often do multi-episode series where they really deep dive into certain issues, and the on-the-ground reporting is amazing. 

Damien, Head of Creative

I also love The Observatory with two brilliant minds of the design world, Michael Beirut and Jessica Helfand. They discuss everything, from the typography of Trump’s press releases to Royal Weddings.These are two designers I really admire and it’s brilliant to have access to them in such an informal and easy format. 

Freddie, Members' Events Manager

My last choice is Making Sense with Sam Harris, a neuroscientist that interviews a range of guests, tackling various issues. I like hearing from people I never even knew I was interested in. They also cover some really interesting things, including religion and consciousness.
