Do you have any good podcast recommendations for me? In Dutch, not in English. In English, but I don’t mind Dutch.

  • friends and acquaintances, recently

I find that I listen less to podcasts now that I am working from home and not traveling to work every day. During my morning 1 hour door-to-door commute, I would listen to dutch radio 4 exclusively, but my afternoon commute was mostly reserved for podcasts. Now that I don’t have that travel time, I listen to podcasts during my daily walks and in the evening when working on puzzles or embroidery work. There is a fierce competition with audiobooks, but I guess whatever my mood wants, I tune into to.

Some of the following podcasts are older and have finished, some of them have infrequent updates, other are updated daily. Have fun searches for these in your podcast app!
