A podcast, by definition, is a collection of audio files, typically published in episodes, that are made available for streaming or downloading over the Internet. Most podcasts are free, and listeners can subscribe to their favorite podcasts and listen online or offline. Podcasts are generally speaking an alternative for traditional radio stations that repeat the same dull content over and over. With a quick search and the click of a button, one can now find and listen to anything they want, whether it's sports, news, stand-up comedy, or daily rants.

Podcasts are listened to for a variety of reasons. 74% of audiences tune in to learn something new, while others listen for entertainment, to stay updated, to relax, or to be inspired. Whatever the reason, we can't deny that the podcast craze has been one of the best things to happen to us.

Almost half of non-listeners say they don't know where to find podcasts, so in an effort to assist, we have compiled a list of some of our favorite Kenyan podcasts that we believe everyone should listen to.

Legally Clueless

If you enjoy storytelling, you will enjoy this one. The Legally Clueless Podcast, hosted by former radio presenter, social activist, and media personality Adelle Onyango, is the first on the list. Adelle's podcast chronicles her journey as an unapologetic African woman who is constantly evolving. She also hosts people from various backgrounds and struggles to tell their authentic African stories of pain, perseverance, wins, and losses, all with the goal of encouraging and inspiring others who are feeling disadvantaged in life. Weekly episodes of Legally Clueless are available on all streaming platforms.

The Mics Are Open

This is the podcast for you if you're looking for something to keep you entertained. G Money, Calvin, and Andy Young host the Mics Are Open Podcast, and the content they produce takes a slightly distorted look at life, love, platonic and romantic relationships, and frankly everything in between. The guys are never afraid to express their true feelings, and they do so with a healthy dose of humour. The podcast releases new episodes on a weekly basis and is available on any streaming platform.

Surviving Nairobi

This podcast, now in its fifth season, provides tips, tricks, and stories on how to navigate and survive Nairobi's concrete jungle. If you're going to Kenya, especially Nairobi, make sure to listen to a few episodes of this podcast. Surviving Nairobi is hosted by Ivy and Hafare, and their content encompasses everything Nairobi, including the dos and don'ts, when and wheres, who's and whats.

Guy Code

This podcast is devoted to the Kenyan man - or, in this case, any man. It chooses to focus on addressing and discussing concerns that men face in society, as well as providing solutions to day-to-day struggles around parenting, finances, and relationships.

Kenyan WallStreet.

Kenyan Wallstreet is the last but not least. This podcast focuses on all things finance and business, not just in Kenya, but throughout Africa. The hosts provide credible, educated opinions on all things news, investment, stocks, Forex, and markets.

So, whether you're driving to work, running, getting ready for bed, or taking a road trip, make sure to listen to these podcasts.
