The Dollop will arrive at Liberty Hall on November 21, bringing US history to the stage with comedian hosts Dave Anthony and Gareth Reynolds.

Today, multi-platinum selling songwriter and mental health activist, Niall Breslin announced the launch of his own podcast series, Where is my Mind?. Available to listen to today across all streaming platforms, the six episode podcast series will guide listeners on how to navigate the manic, always-on and head-melting world they find themselves in today.

Where is my Mind? will follow Niall discussing what impact today’s society has on individuals, discussing a variety of coping techniques on how to deal with the overstimulated mindset people find themselves in by introducing the basics of mindfulness practice and meditation. Each podcast episode will enable listeners to learn the skills to help with breaking that autopilot mode, how to navigate constant distraction, how to be a more skilful stress-head and even how to get good at Jenga.

Speaking on the announcement, Founder of Where is my Mind?, Niall Breslin said ‘We all share a lot of the same issues and insecurities and to ask are there practical things we can all do to lessen the impact of the lightning-fast, high pressure world on our ability to be able to sleep soundly at night? For me the podcast platform is the most intimate way to explore this context in more detail and perhaps support people in the internal and external difficulties they will inevitably face in this life’.

Halloween is upon us, and so, we have decided to switch up our listening material. 

We scoured the SHEmazing HQ to discover our favourite podcasts focusing on horror, true crime and freaky fiction.

Harry Potter is involved in all of our most beloved childhood memories, from queuing up at midnight to get a copy of the latest book, to staying up late with a flashlight under the covers trying to finish a particularly riveting chapter.

The books brought joy and magic to so many people, that even twenty years after the first book came out, the wizarding world still captures the imaginations of children and adults alike.

Here are a few of our favourite magical Harry Potter podcasts to get your Fizzing Whizzbee fix: 

5. MuggleCast

MuggleCast has been podcasting about the Harry Potter series since 2005, so these witches and warlocks know what they're talking about.

The cast chat about the latest Harry Potter, Cursed Child, and Fantastic Beasts news and theories, and discuss everything about the fandom.

4. The Weird Sisters

The Weird Sisters is run by (yep, you guessed it) two sisters, who have loved Harry Potter since the day the first book was released. 

Their love for HP is clear in the podcasts, which brings the long-distance sisters together every week to discuss their favourite topic.

3. Yer A Wizard Harry: The Harry Potter Bookclub

The trio who run this podcast discuss the different events in Harry Potter, and compare them to modern event.

It's all about what we can learn from the texts, while enjoying the podcasters commentary.

2. Witch Please

Witch Please is a fortnightly podcast discussing various elements of the Harry Potter world. 

The un-scripted nature of this female creation is what makes it so magical. 

1. Harry Potter and the Sacred Text

"Just as Christians read the Bible, Jews the Torah and Muslims read the Quran, we are embarking on a 199-episode journey (one chapter an episode, to be released weekly) to glean what wisdom and meaning we can make from J.K. Rowling’s beloved novels," reads this unique podcasts bio.

Each week, a chapter of the book is read through the lens of a particular theme, from friendship to envy, making it a very interesting listening experience. 



True crime podcasts are our favourite pastime pursuit.

We have previously compiled a list of some of our favourite podcasts documenting crimes throughout the ages, but you guys had a few recommendations for us, so we’ve decided to create a part two.

It has won awards and continues to capture the minds of true-crime zealots world wide.

Court Junkie

Court Junkie deals with intrinsically complex and interesting cases of true crime.

The show discusses conspiracies of unsolved crimes and delves into the details of solved cases.

As well as dealing with murder cases, the hosts also explore issues such as hazing, sexual battery and missing people.

True Crime Garage

True Crime Garage is one of the more laid back podcasts on this list.
