What’s Your Favourite Podcast?

In the last twelve months I have become addicted to listening to podcasts, I have even managed to make the odd guest appearance in a few as well!

I absolutely love listening to them, especially when I am in the car. Initially I listened to mainly Family History based shows, but I have also found a couple of beautiful podcasts that really brighten my day and they have become my little piece of escapism. Throw in a mix of History, Military History and the macabre subject of Grave Diggers, then there is a little piece for everyone!


I have listed my favourite shows here, apologies if I have missed you out, please drop me a message if you have a show that you think would be of interest.

I have to make a special mention to Zoe at The Airing Cupboard, it was listening to Zoe’s beautiful podcasts that first introduced me to wonders of listening to them.

So here’s my list and I urge you to give them a try, there’s something there for all of us, sit back, relax and enjoy!

  1. “Beautiful podcasts”! Yes, as I get older, I more and more crave opportunities to appreciate simple, beautiful thoughts. I am adding “The Airing Cupboard” to my podcast list.

    Recently I have learned a lot from Family Locket’s “Research Like a Pro” podcasts: https://familylocket.com/the-research-like-a-pro-genealogy-podcast/

    From your list, I second your recommendations for “Generations Cafe” and “Family Tree Magazine Podcast”–great useful topics at both.
