During this pandemic year I’ve had more time to listen to podcasts. Which is lucky, because there are a lot of excellent podcasts out there!
When I was a poor student, over 20 years ago, I had no internet in my room. What I did have was a really old television set. In fact it was so old it started making weird noises and I was so afraid it would blow up one day, I decided to not turn it on again.
Instead, I listened to the radio a lot. Not just music, but also a lot of great journalism. In the age of internet I thought that radio had died out a bit, until podcasts started appearing left and right. These days I feel like podcasts have actually saved radio.
So here are my favourite podcasts that I listened to this year.
