Podcasts

Every week, we categorise and select the most interesting new episodes from the thousands of podcast channels we track in our system. Those selections are the product of our algorithms and team of human curators. There are several ways you can get them:

  1. Best Of Podcast series, where we feature ten episodes from across all of the topics we cover.
  2. Thematic syllabi (including on technology, economics and arts & culture). All of these syllabi will cointain a handful of the best new topic-specific podcasts of that week.
  3. Personalised syllabus. You will receive the most interesting new episodes relevant to just your choices from our ~60 topics. These range from AI & Automation via History Afresh to the Global Economy.
  4. Subscribing to our podcast feeds – see below.
