Laughs of your Life

Given her easy-going presenting style, it’s no great surprise that Doireann Garrihy’s podcast Laughs of your Life was a success from the off.

Very digestible in length, being in and around the half-hour mark, Doireann discusses laughter with her guests.

Their first memory of it, a time they felt laughed at and a moment when if they didn’t laugh, they’d cry.

The format in general lends to a very nice chat about guests’ lives.

Also, Doireann’s guests always pack a punch, from Ryan Tubridy to Marty Morrissey and Chris O’Dowd.

The latest episode released was with none other than Rachel Blackmore.

That Peter Crouch Podcast

Naturally, That Peter Crouch Podcast has proven very popular with soccer (or football, whichever you prefer) fans.

As part of BBC Sounds, the former Primier League footballer gives a humorous insight into the world of professional football.

He is joined by sports journalist Tom Fordyce and radio personality Chris Stark.

The three presenters have a very conversational tone, making for easy listening.

Episodes cover everything from dressing rooms to hotel stays, transfers and where to sit on the team bus.

Off Menu

We’ve all had the conversation: what would be your final meal - starter, main and dessert?

Well now, it’s the focus of a podcast Off Menu.

Comedians Ed Gamble and James Acaster ask guests to choose their favourite starter, main, desert, side and drink in the 'Dream Restaurant'.

The show is lighthearted and fun. While the guest chooses their meal, they share anecdotes.

Also, at the start of each episode before the guest comes on, the presenters name a mystery ingredient and if the guest mentions it, they get ejected from the 'Dream Restaurant'.

Sinead Says

Sinead Hegarty is an influencer who specialises in mindset, relationships and fitness, among other things.

She wrote a book called Relationships – You Should Know These Things and, in late 2020, launched her own podcast Sinead Says, which she bills as “an insight into love, life and relationships”.

The podcast looks at how our minds work and how to achieve goals. Through both solo episodes and interviewing guests, Sinead covers topics such as dealing with negativity, manifesting and anxiety.
