At Simply Be, we love our podcasts. Whether it’s listening to them while we work, while we commute or just while we lounge about on a Sunday afternoon; there’s no denying that a good podcast is about as binge-worthy as a new Netflix series. So, with summer here and tanning season upon us, we’ve shared some of our favourites – perfect for poolside relaxing.
The Beauty One: Fat Mascara
For when you want to want to jump feet first into all things beauty. Jessica Matlin and Jennifer Goldstein take all of the knowledge they’ve gained from their day jobs as beauty editors and distil it into factual (and hilarious) podcast episodes. Covering everything from their fabulous beauty adventures and the products you NEED in your make-up bag, to tips and tricks from industry greats. This is a must for any fellow beauty nerds out there!
The Health, Fitness and Youtube One: The Health Code
A fun, unfiltered and downright hilarious podcast from down-under, The Health Code sees health and fitness YouTuber, Sarah’s Day and professional photographer / Content Creator (and Sarah’s boyfriend) Kurt Tilse open up about their lives, share their healthy hacks, offer career advice and make their listeners laugh out loud with their jokes and catchphrases. #DoYouEvenFasHun?
The #GirlBoss One (that isn’t #Girlboss): How I Built This with Guy Raz

The OH MY GOD DID HE DO IT? One: Casefile
After a podcast that will keep you on your toes? Each week Casefile deep dives into real life solved AND cold criminal cases; exploring the evidence, unearthing eye witness accounts and digging into what ACTUALLY happened.

I work on Simply Be’s marketing team and contribute to the Simply Me blog, writing about everything from celebrity and fashion, to food and travel. In my free time I can be either found at brunch, learning to surf, researching my next holiday destination, binging a Netflix series or eating Nutella straight from the jar.
