Education – United Kingdom – Recommended podcasts

  • Award-winning ex-BBC journalist Andrew Gold interviews fascinating minds & quirky outsiders, from a Westboro Baptist Church defector and a female Mormon psychopath to Amanda Knox and Richard Dawkins...and a man who once had to eat his friends. New eps Mon & Thu.

  • In this new original series from Somethin' Else, Claudia Winkleman and Professor Tanya Byron identify struggles faced by real-life parents and family members by inviting them in and hearing their story, in a one-time unscripted session with a real person. Claudia listens in to the conversation to discover how Tanya begins to unlock the story behind the issue and help find solutions.

    With topics ranging from parental estrangement, gender identity, domestic violence, trauma, inheriting mental health issues, family dynamics after cancer and raising a severely disabled daughter, How Did We Get Here? is a passionate, insightful and moving experience with clear outcomes to each episode.

    This podcast doesn’t tell people how to raise their children, or reconnect with family members, rather it helps people understand why, as perfectly competent adults, they can’t put into practice what they know they should do.

    Each episode passes on useful links and contacts which listeners can find in the programme notes.

    This is a Somethin' Else production.

  • A few years ago I was a broke, university dropout, living in one of the worst parts of the country, alone, with nothing but a laptop & a dream. Fast forward a few years, Iโ€™m the 29 year old ex CEO of one of the UKโ€™s fastest growing companies. That company is called Social Chain. My world is intense, sometimes crazy, always challenging and always unpredictable. This podcast is simple, every week Iโ€™m going to share insights with you from guests with different backgrounds, experiences and learnings. I want to give you a look into what itโ€™s like behind the scenes, being an entrepreneur, the deep, dark thoughts that nobody else will share with you and anything else thatโ€™s playing on my mind. This is not scripted and I don't have questions I just see where the conversation takes me. This is the diary of a CEO, Iโ€™m Steven Bartlett. I hope nobody is listening, but if you areโ€ฆ keep this to yourself.FOLLOW โ–บInstagram (https://www.instagram.com/steven/)Twitter (https://twitter.com/SteveBartlettSC?s=20)Linkedin (https://www.linkedin.com/in/stevenbartlett-123/)

  • Welcome, Friends.
    Storytelling has the power to not only create connections but provide universal truths about ourselves and the world. When listening to this podcast, I ask that you honor these stories and the rawness, transparency, and vulnerability that they invoke. Invite them with an open heart and you will see that all stories share a universal message. I pray that each anecdote leaves you inspired to share as the Prophet (๏ทบ) said, "It is also charity to utter a good word.”  But more importantly, I pray that you allow yourself to find comfort in the good, wisdom in the hardship, and the courage to trust Allah.
