4. SmartLess

Why this podcast?

For a slightly different flavour, Smartness with the easy to listen to Jason Bateman, Will Arnett, and Sean Hayes is a breath of fresh air as each episode they interview a new celebrity who they are usually friends with or connected to in some or other way and so you get a very different type of informal, usually hilarious, look behind the scenes and into the life of some famous people we enjoy in movies or shows or even sport and politics. The banter between the hosts and the guests makes this a fun way to just relax and soak it in.

For Poetry lovers, this is something for you, but even if you aren't particularly into poetry, the soothing strains of Pádraig Ó Tuama as he features a range of poets in much shorter podcasts will draw you in. These serve as a bit of a filelr usually between around 10 and 12 minutes as a new poet shares their poem with some engagement. A beautiful addition to your Playlist.
