Recommended podcasts: what we’ve been listening to in 2019
We love podcasts at Seedlip HQ, so we thought we’d share with you a list of some of our favourites from the last year, including a few stand-out episodes that started conversations in the office.
The list includes a wide range of topics from fun trivia to in-depth interviews. We hope you enjoy them as much we do.
As always, we’d love to know what you think. Perhaps there’s a podcast you think we should be listening to? Email us at firstname.lastname@example.org.

A series of interviews with actors, writers, presenters & athletes. Each interviewee talks to Elizabeth Day about the failures in their lives & what they’ve learned from those failures.
