Darling, Shine!

Darling, Shine! is your survival kit to the unexpected shit life throws at you. Hosted by friends Ellidy Pullin and Chloe Fisher, the podcast unpacks the raw and often unspoken experiences of being a woman: Grief, friendship, fertility issues, widowhood and everything in between.

Pullin and Fisher pride themselves on having created a community upon which their listeners can lean on each other and hype each other up. It’s real, it’s raw and it’s there to talk about the issues that don’t usually get spoken about.

Do You F*cking Mind

If you haven’t listened to Alexis Fernandez-Preiksa’s no bullshit, no-holds-barred podcast series, you are in for a treat. Alexis uses her background in neuroscience and brain health to teach you how to improve not just your perception of yourself but of the world around you, too. It’s practical advice, backed by science and completely free of any feel-good mantras.

The best part? You don’t have to listen to them in order. Pick the title the most speaks to you and jump in.

Against the Odds

A little bit different to the others but no less motivational, Against the Odds takes you to the immersive edge of some of the most incredible adventure and survival stories in world history.

From Captain “Sully” Sullenberger’s plane landing that became known as “The Miracle on the Hudson” to the Chilean miners who were rescued from a collapsed mine shaft, these are stories of epic struggle and survival that capture the imagination – and inspire.

It started with a friendship, then became an app and then a chart-topping podcast. KICPOD is hosted by Steph Claire Smith and Laura Henshaw, founders of Kic, a health and wellness app that focused on feeling your best, not looking a certain way. The podcast acts as an extension of the pair’s ethos and feels like a weekly D&M on the stuff that matters.

Topics range from when you shouldn’t be ashamed of your intrusive thoughts to how often you should wash your bra, bringing a little more light-and-shade to your motivation this year.
