I’ve discovered podcasts this year and often listen to one on the way home from school on the bus. These three podcasts are my favourites so far.
This weekly podcast is marketed as a ‘comedy podcast about death’, and author John Green and his brother Hank sure deliver a podcast full of comedy, dubious advice, and all the latest news on everything from Mars to AFC Wimbledon.
I love this podcast because of its humour and references to pop culture. I also like how John reads a short poem at the start of each podcast. I would recommend it for listeners 14+.
The brothers have a YouTube channel (The Vlogbrothers) which I also enjoy, and learn a lot from.
2. Sleek Geeks
This is a great podcast where two geeks (Dr Karl Kruszelnicki and mathematician Adam Spencer) discuss all things science and maths. Packed with facts, questions, and a healthy dose of humour, this is one of my favourite podcasts. There are 44 episodes to enjoy.
In this weekly podcast, Dr Karl Kruszelnicki, Zan Rowe and various guests answer science questions from Triple J listeners. I love this podcast because I learn so many interesting facts from it. If you enjoy Dr Karl’s books (as I do), or are interested in science at all, you’ll love this podcast.

NB: I listen to podcasts through iTunes, so I’ve linked to them there, but there are different podcast streaming services you can use and Google is the best way to find them.
