Health & Wellness
Feel Better, Live More – Dr Rangan Chatterjee
In a Nutshell: “Health has become over-complicated; I aim to simplify it.”
This is the ethos behind Dr Chatterjee’s podcast, one of the highest recommended in the health and wellness space. Dr Chatterjee discusses revolutionary ideas and evidenced-based science with some of the world’s best doctors, scientists, specialists, psychologists, thought leaders and researchers. Not only does he discuss topics on diet and exercise but also sleep, stress, relationships, breathing, overcoming challenges and many more. One of my favourite episodes include an eye-opening conversation with John MacAvoy; an ex-convict born into one of the UK’s worst criminal families, and who has served over 10 years in some of the UK’s highest-security prisons. MacAvoy discusses how he has turned his life around, going on to break two British and World sporting records, sharing his story with thousands of school children and also sharing his experience of the justice system with the Prime Minister.
This podcast truly has something for everyone. One of the reasons why Dr Chatterjee has created such a popular podcast is his brilliant interviewing skills, and his ability to create actionable tips that the listener can use to improve their life immediately.

What You Will Learn “The Best Bits from the Best Books”
In a Nutshell: Two Aussie blokes share their biggest takeaways and lessons from the best non-fiction books of all time.
Ashto and Jonesy tackle the giants of the non-fiction world including ‘How to Win Friends and Influence People’, ‘Man’s Search for Meaning’, ‘Atomic Habits’ and ‘The Four-Hour Work Week’. They strike the perfect balance between getting the best bits of information whilst not spoiling your plan to read it, in a humorous and relaxed style. If you want a flavour of a non-fiction book before you buy it (or even if you don’t and just want the juicy bits), I highly recommend checking out this podcast.
