There is a new campaign on Twitter to share podcasts under the #trypod hashtag. I thought this was a great idea so I wanted to share my top 3 podcasts that everyone should listen to!

99% Invisible

If you’re looking to try podcasts but you’re not sure where to start, start here. 99% Invisible is one of the top podcasts on everyone’s lists, thanks to the combination of fantastic reporting, the exploration of the things we don’t usually think about, and Roman Mars’ soothing voice.

If you’re not sure where to start, there is no better place than at Episode 1 “99% Noise”. But other standout episodes include:

But honestly, no matter what episode you listen to first, you’ll hear an amazing story.

His skill is in teasing out interesting stories that the people who come on the show (who often have given a lot of interviews) that have never been told before.

Some great episodes to try include:

Here are the ones that I found most interesting:
