Joe Rogan Podcast
This podcast is the oldest on our list but it sure as hell doesn’t sound it. Even though The Joe Rogan Podcast has its origins in 2003, it’s definitely reached peak popularity in 2020. Joe Rogan is a comedian, actor, sports commentator, martial artist, and television host, who introduces his listeners to a variety of special guests in an extremely entertaining matter. It’s become insanely popular, just like these podcasts.
These two may have tackled the Sydney Writers Festival last year but they sure as hell haven’t peaked yet.

Step inside their confession booth as they break down the latest in TV, movies, art, music and the internet.
There are also plenty of podcasts out there if you’re looking to learn a new language, consume some of BBC’s content, do a bit of self-improvement or get stuck into true crime. If you don’t know where to start, check these ones out – or these, if you’re a Spotify user.
