It’s been a very strange time for the entertainment industry, there’s no question about it. While many productions have been forced to pause, podcasts have survived, if not thrived during quarantine. Thanks to the flexible nature of podcasting and bored celebrities, the creation of podcasts has been able to continue, creating an endless number of new titles and much-needed companionship for listeners in lockdown.

But with so many new podcasts out there, we thought we’d talk to the team at Acast and find out which of their newest titles you should definitely know about – here’s what’s new on Acast.
