As self-isolation and quarantine increasingly become the reality for more Australians, amid the coronavirus pandemic, we’ve suddenly all found ourselves with more time.
So whilst we all practice our social distancing, perhaps listening to podcasts is just what we need to feel comforted.
Whether they offer us an escape by talking about finding happiness or they discuss the big events of the week in a way that isn’t totally frightening, podcasts can be some of the best company.
Here are all the podcasts Mamamia staff members and readers have recommended for while we are stuck at home.
