1. Lifehacker's podcast

The most popular Russian podcast based on Tiburon Research. And this is not surprising: short lectures cover a wide range of topics and will appeal to completely different audiences. Most of the issues are about health, productivity and relationships. In 5-15 minutes, you can learn how to restore sleep patterns, improve memory and learn to praise yourself even for small victories. According to the listeners, it is especially convenient to turn on the podcast during jogging and trips in transport: the road flies unnoticed behind fascinating lectures.

2.10 stupid questions

A podcast from the creative agency "Zhiza" about professions and the seamy side of work in various fields. The authors invite doctors, builders, designers, teachers, trainers and other professionals to the studio to answer simple but important questions about their craft. Issues last from 10 minutes to an hour, depending on the complexity of the topic. "10 stupid questions" will be interesting both for young people who are just choosing a profession, and for older listeners.

3. The most honest news

A podcast by designer Artemy Lebedev, in which he shares his views on events in the country and the world.

"Honest News" is entirely based on the host's charisma, so if you like Artemy, turn on the podcast.

4. In previous episodes

The KinoPoisk podcast, in which the editor-in-chief of the portal Liza Surganova and the author of the Telegram channel “Stocking up on popcorn” Ivan Filippov discuss significant serial novelties and old cult projects. The conversation between the two facilitators allows you to show different opinions, and sometimes even create a conflict around an issue. Among the themes of the latest releases are the acclaimed "Darkness", the black comedy "The Great" and the universe of the animated series "Rick and Morty".

By the way, the editorial staff of KinoPoisk is making another podcast - Noise and Brightness. In it, the music journalist Lev Gankin talks about the sound design of cinema. Listen if you're wondering how the soundtrack for Brother-2 was made or why the music in Shrek is turning the canon around.

These are rather long conversations - mostly more than an hour, and sometimes even two. They are not like a classic interview, where the host asks questions to the guest, and he answers. This is a conversation on an equal footing, and with an adult vocabulary.

In the service "" you will find hundreds of podcasts on any topic: self-development, business, art, science, technology, psychology, content for children.

6. The money came

The presenters Sasha Polivanov and Ilya Krasilshchik discuss how to spend money correctly, although, as they say, they themselves do not know how to do it at all - this is such a paradox. It may seem that this podcast is about what the salary is spent on. But in fact, in the issues, the authors strive to answer the question of how we live. The main task of the project is not to teach students how to spend or save, but to understand how everything works. Guests help dive deeper into the topic, each of whom has an example of an amazing relationship with money. Useful conversations from the studio "Either / Either" fit into 40-65 minutes.

7. Disgusting men

This podcast isn't about space at all, as one might think. It is about electronic music, its genres, history and personalities.
