Earlier this year, I discovered the podcast, How Do You Sleep At Night. Even from the title, I was hooked.
It was one of those podcasts that made me think, “WHY DIDN’T I MAKE THIS?!?”
After religiously listening to each episode, a little part of my heart broke when I realised it only had six episodes.
I needed more. This couldn’t be the end. WHY.
You know the feeling.
So, at this time of year, I find myself desperate to listen/watch/read things that won’t catch me at the six-episode ending.
That have HEAPS.
That once I fall in love with the hosts, story, or content, I can just keep binging on.
After crazily messaging friends for recommendations, and collecting my own ones, I have compiled your go-to list of:
PODCASTS WITH 50+ EPISODES THAT I CAN BINGE ON.
From my eager heart to yours, I hope you enjoy.
1. The Guilty Feminist
Clocking in over 70 eps, this podcast is made by comedian, Deborah Frances-White, and you guessed it, it’s all about being a guilty feminist.
Now, just because it has the word “feminist” in it, don’t scroll down because you assume it’s going to be heavy or “too political”.

To be honest, as much as I love my politics, the past two years have been quite politics heavy and I need a break.
Trust me with this.
Frances-White is joined weekly with fellow comedians and kick-arse women to traverse the difficult paths of being a “guilty feminist”, and explore difficult topics like shame, assumptions, and orgasms with humour.
In the words of Frances-White herself, “I am a feminist but I once asked a taxi man to pull over because I couldn’t twist open my water bottle.”
BEING A FEMINIST IS HARD SOMETIMES. And, I love it.
Find out more, here.
2. RuPaul: What’s The Tee?
It is taking all of my willpower not to write this entire part in capital letters, only because I love RuPaul so much.
If you haven’t heard of RuPaul (oh gosh, my heart is fluttering because your life will be changed), he* is a drag queen superstar and the creator of RuPaul’s Drag Race. It features lots of sequins, shade, and fierce women.
