Treat your ears to some of our favourites, submitted by the AMPR team.

 

THE WARDROBE CRISIS 

A podcast by Sydney-based journalist, author, film maker and presenter Clare Press about ethical and sustainable fashion. Super informative!

Raina Naidu, Communications Manager

 

SHAMELESS

‘For smart people who love dumb stuff’. A celebrity and pop culture podcast hosted by Melbourne journalists Michelle Andrews and Zara McDonald.  It’s easy yet interesting listening.

Natasha Bongiorno, Communications Manager

 

WHO THE HELL IS HAMISH?

A crime podcast by The Australian, the fascinating life of a serial conman. Loved this one to switch off, I got lost within the story.

Ebony Santin, Communications Executive

 

HOW TO FAIL WITH ELIZABETH DAY

With a top selling book under the same name, Elizabeth Day interviews a range of guests that explore what their failures taught them about how to succeed in the future. The purpose is to learn from mistakes and celebrate where you have failed so you can learn from them.

Amelia Cox, Senior Communications Manager

 

FOUNDED BEAUTY WITH AKASH MEHTA 

My good friend and founder of Fable & Mane recently launched his podcast that is dedicated to interviewing beauty entrepreneurs who have built some of the biggest brands today.

TABLE MANNERS WITH JESSIE WARE

A food podcast that interviews people whilst they cook for them. Now a successful recipe book and the star of the show is Jessie’s mum who co-hosts with her! A fave episode of mine is Queer Eye hero, Antoni Poroski and also Schitt’s Creek lead, Dan Levy.

Laura Sheppeck, Senior Communications Director (Retail + Beauty)

 

LOVE STORIES

The High Low doesn’t exist anymore but co-host Dolly Alderton has another podcast called Love Stories that talks to guests about their most defining relationships. Stanley Tucci episode is highly recommended!

Laura Sheppeck, Senior Communications Director (Retail + Beauty)

 

LIFE UNCUT

My favourite episode was “dating a narcissist” – funny and relatable. They talk about their own experiences as well as their followers plus they have a Facebook support group, and they use a lot of personal stories.

Josette Martinez, Communications Executive

 

THE SQUIZ

An update on the daily news headlines in a matter of minutes. Great to listen to while getting ready for work. They also offer deep dives into news stories for more in-depth features. Great way to stay informed on the go.

Nicole D’Amico, Communications Director

 

HAPPY HOUR WITH LUCY AND NICKY

Happy Hour takes you into the lives and real-life tales of Lucy and Nikki, the co-​creators of @wethe_wildones and fashion label Jagger and Stone. Although I don’t listen to podcasts regularly, this is something light-hearted and easy.

Bridget Halpin, Communication Manager

 

SHE’S ON THE MONEY

Millennial money expert Victoria Devine shares her foolproof tips for financial freedom. So educational and I’m always discovering new hacks to save money. They also have good banter, so it is great to have playing in the background around the house.

Raina Naidu, Communications Manager

 

DYING FOR SEX

Don’t let the title fool you. When one of the co-hosts is diagnosed with terminal cancer, she decides to end her unhappy marriage and embarks on a series of sexual adventures to help her feel alive. It will make you laugh and cry, particularly the last episode…

Cheyenne Myers, Senior Communications Director

 

HOW I BUILT THIS

A really inspiring podcast talking to how some of the most successful companies started.

Jessie Firmstone, Communications Manager

 

EVERYONE HAS AN EX

Real people telling stories of past relationships and lovers. Touching on heart break, deaths, humiliations, drug addiction and affairs. This podcast is brilliant, season three launched last week and it’s full of easy listening and interesting dating stories. Season 2 ep 3 is a shocker: ‘Addicted to You’.

Sheena O’Connor, Finance

 

Welcome To The OC Bitches

This is a light-hearted one I love listening to. This was my favourite TV show when I was younger and is so interesting to hear them talk through each episode 17 years since it aired on TV. It’s also a great insight into the TV production industry.

Kalli Loukides, Communications Executive
