Listen-at-home: 8x podcasts selected by SUITSUIT

Even though we imagined the beginning of spring differently than staying at home 24/7, it doesn’t mean we should completely forget about our spring feeling. Especially now, it’s important that we stay positive and keep on dreaming. SUITSUIT selected 4 English and - for our Dutchies - 4 Dutch podcasts that will help you to fill up your quarantaine-time. And maybe even inspire, make you laugh or to put you on the edge of your seat… Getting curious? Read on. 

So you won’t lose your travel-fever
The Travel Diaries
This podcast is a weekly interview series where travel journalist Holly Rubenstein chats with a special guest about the travel experiences that have shaped their lives and their adventures around the world. With questions like ‘What is your first travel memory?’, ‘What is the first place you fell in love with?’ and ‘What destination is on the top of your bucketlist?’, Holly gets to know a lot about her guests and their travel experiences. 

Reisgenoten
Of course, we can’t forget about our Dutchies: In Reisgenoten, you’ll hear radio-dj and travel-lover Niels de Jager and travel journalist Daisy Scholten. In the podcast, they interview their guests about their most beautiful travel experiences. Reisgenoten is full of inspiring stories that will trigger your travel-fever and leave you daydreaming about your next destination!      

Let’s talk about me
Almost 30
Now that we’re all “stuck” at home, we’ve got time to think. Almost 30 will help you with that. It’s about navigating life’s transitions from your twenties to your thirties. Hosts Krista Williams and Lindsey Simcik interview amazing guests about spirituality, relationships, personal development and much more. This podcast gives you the opportunity to reflect on what’s really going on in your mind, which might just exactly be what we need right now. 

Weet Ik Veel? 
And for our Dutchies; Cosmopolitan got you covered. In this podcast the Cosmopolitan editors-team is looking for answers to all kinds of questions about self-love, body positivity, sustainability and self confidence. To get those answers, they chat with their guests, under which are Gwen van Poorten, Nina Pierson, Amanda Rijff and Mayra Louise.  Weet Ik Veel? Is also  a podcast that leaves you thinking about yourself for a while, which is very important. So Dutchies, what are you waiting for? 

On the edge of your seat
Crime Junkie
Can’t get enough of true crime? Congratulations! You’ve found your people. Crime Junkie is there for people who are pretty sure they’ve missed their true life’s calling to be a detective.  The podcast tells thrilling stories about serial killers, unsolved murder cases and mysterious missings. Enough crime-entertainment to stay home, right? 

Daders
Do you prefer to get your daily dose of crime stories in Dutch? We’ve got you. Daders is a podcast initiated by NPO Radio 1 in which host Cas de Jong talks to murderers, ex mental institution patients and criminals. How did they end up doing their cruel deed? Do they have regrets? And - this is probably the most interesting part of the podcast - why should society give them a second chance? 

To relax for a bit
How To Fail With Elizabeth Day
In this podcast, journalist Elizabeth Day will tell you everything about the mistakes she’s made and what she learned from them. She also interviews successful guests about their biggest mistakes and how these eventually gave them more success. Funny and educational: ideal to listen to when you take a step back from working at home. 

Ik Zag Iets Moois
Wouldn’t it be nice, since the only thing you see every day is your laptop screen, if someone could take you outside for a moment? The Dutch podcast initiated by ‘Het Parool’ called Ik Zag Iets Moois, does exactly this. Hosts Cathelijne Blok and Malou Holshuijsen take you to the Vondelpark in the city centre of Amsterdam to talk with known or unknown people about the best thing they saw or experienced that week. It’s a laid-back and lighthearted podcast that makes it perfect to listen to when you take some time for yourself. 


We hope that, with this list of podcasts, you can get your daily dose of crime-entertainment and inspiration to keep you occupied during these quarantaine weeks! 

Stay healthy & stay safe.


Love,
SUITSUIT
