Spoilt for choice, it's often difficult to decide which ones are actually worth checking out. Here is a list of eight podcasts that have earned a spot amongst the best podcasts out there.

1. Gossipmongers

The podcast, Gossipmongers, looks into ludicrous small-town rumors and urban legends. The hosts, Joe Wilkinson, David Earl, and Poppy Hillstead, read out readers' submissions and discuss which ones they like most.


From a tale of the baby who was born into a welly, grew into the shape of a welly, and sadly died when it was mistaken for an actual welly to the man who started getting baptized at as many different churches as possible without actually being a Christian, they have a quirky story to appeal to every listener.

2. Encyclopedia Womannica

This one is for any history enthusiasts. Encyclopedia Womannica publishes five-minute podcasts about incredible women from different periods of history. Some of the brilliant women the podcast has touched on include Maya Angelou, Julia Child, and Joan of Arc.
