Here Are The Most Binge Worthy Podcasts of 2022
There’s nothing like getting engrossed in a really great binge worthy podcast series. They can be your running companion, a replacement for a book when your eyes are too tired to read, or provide company on a long commute.
The only problem is, for a podcast novice, the choice of titles can be completely overwhelming. There’s also the assumption that binge worthy podcasts are all about true crime, a bit dark and macabre. I’m not going to lie… I’ve binged those too… but maybe that’s not exactly how you want to go bouncing into the new year!
Never fear. I’ve kindly taken the leg work out of it all for you by obsessively listening to all the most binge worthy podcasts I think you should check out in 2022. And as always on this site, all the titles will focus on positivity, hope and making you laugh. Apple podcasts have something for everyone; whether you’re a knackered parent, a fitness junkie, eager to learn something new or just looking to be uplifted and inspired.
Clear your diaries and get your headphones at the ready. Here are my top tips for the most binge worthy podcasts to lose yourself in this year.

- The one that’ll make you LOL: British Scandal
In a country obsessed with gossip, the great and the good fear one thing more than any other – scandal.
British scandals change the course of history. They bring down governments, overthrow the rich and cause the mighty to fall. Some are about sex, others about money. In the end, they’re all about power.
But often at the heart of a scandal, there are ordinary human stories, stories of those caught up in the swirl of outrage.
Who was really to blame for what happened? Why did they do it? And when all is said and done, did anything really change?
From the creators of Business Wars, American Scandal and Even The Rich, comes British Scandal. We tell the stories of the murkier side of the British elite, from Phone Hacking to Saville to Profumo who show us the reality of power, the price of pride and the failings of the great and good.

It was a dream come true for her, but just a few months later, things took a near deadly turn for her. She made it out of the country thanks to a young girl named Natasha who she never saw or heard from again.
