Podcasts to listen to over summer (that aren’t Serial)

Sick of waiting for that one story week by week? Here are some fantastic podcasts to get you through summer.

Looking for what to listen to over your summer break but not sure what podcasts are worth listening to? We’ve got you covered. These are all the podcasts listened to and loved by the Crikey team. We have deliberately excluded ABC-produced podcasts of existing shows, along with Serial and This American Life because they already get enough attention.

    Reply All looks to be my cup of tea. Thanks for the tips!

    For a different flavour, I recommend the infrequent Kunstlercast on which is a very off-centre look at amerika by, mostly, inhabitants of the Benighted States.

    Thank you massively for the recommendations! I’m a massive US-centric podcast consumer, who with an imminent move to Melbourne, is trying to find the best places to wrap my head around Australia in all the ways that my other podcasts do for me with the US. Have just found Crikey and couldn’t be happier to have a gateway into the political and policy world of my new home. Would love for future podcasts out of your institution!
