Our 10 Favourite Conscious Podcasts

At BLANC, we are big fans of the podcast concept: the early morning commutes suddenly become bearable and, with the right voices in your headphones, even something to look forward to!

It’s not hard to guess that most of the podcasts circulating in the BLANC office focus on ethical and conscious living. And because the podcasting ecosystem is only getting bigger, it can be quite difficult to find the one that suits you. That’s why we wanted to introduce you to our top 10 best conscious podcasts: we hope they will inspire you to minimalism, ethical fashion, wellness and everything in between. We can assure you there is something for everyone - just pick and press play!

 Podcast Ethical Conscious

1. Talking Tastebuds by Venetia Falconer

Length: 50-60 min
Published: Every Tuesday
Noteworthy episode: Amelia Freer: Kind Nutrition

When it comes to Venetia Falconer, we are all ears! Not only does her social media platforms inspiring us to live more sustainably, but her podcast does too. Every week, she brings a new inspiring guest in for a chat, essentially about their life with food. Though, depending on the guest, the conversation always goes on a bit of a tangent to cover topics like wellness, climate activism or sustainable living. Listeners can enjoy refreshing, diverse discussions with guests like sustainable fashion queen Livia Firth, “The Breath Guy” Richie Bostock and the plant-based football player Chris Smalling.

2. What On Earth? By Hubbub

Length: 15-25 min
Published: Season 2 coming soon (you still have season 1 to catch up on)!
Noteworthy episode: E6: Climate Change

Brought to you by the environmental charity Hubbub, this podcast takes you on a journey through the past, present and future of ecological issues. Don’t worry though, Sarah Duvall, a.k.a the lovely host, makes it clear that this is a positive podcast to inspire change - not one to make you frantically stock up ahead of the ecological apocalypse. And we can, cross our hearts, confirm the statement: you are left feeling positive, educated and ready to combat climate change!

One world sustainability

3. The Business of Fashion Podcast

Noteworthy episode: Veja Co-Founder Sebastien Kopp Talks Sustainable Business

If you are looking for the inside scoop on the latest buzz in the fashion industry, this is your perfect match! The Business of Fashion has become an informal gathering point for the entire fashion business. It is often described as ‘required reading’, which, with their podcast, has now also turned into required listening. Their podcast holds a wide selection of episodes on innovation, passion and sustainability within the industry. It is often featuring designers, executives and other industry insiders such as Reformation’s Yael Aflalo, Moncler’s Remo Ruffini and Stella McCartney.

4. The Minimalists

Length: 30-40 min
Published: Every Tuesday and Friday
Noteworthy episode: E202: Buy once

In a big city like London, stress can, at times, feel contagious and slowing down from everyday life can seem like a mission impossible. Luckily, we might have found a cure: The Minimalists podcast! Joshua and Ryan share their journey to minimalism: how to live meaningful lives, with less clutter. They discuss combatting the societal pressure of always wanting more when you probably don’t need it and accepting what you have. Their fresh perspectives and clever thoughts will bring you a well-needed break from the busy city life.

Outrage and optimism - sometimes we need a little bit of both, at least when it comes to the ongoing climate crisis. Hosted by former UN Chief Christiana Figueres, co-founder of Global Optimism Tom Rivett-Carnac and climate change expert Paul Dickinson, this podcast is looking to take the topic of climate change to the next level. The weekly episodes are exploring some of the most puzzling questions of our time and their impressive guests are all at the forefront of changing the world, including Sir David Attenborough, Greta Thunberg and Richard Branson.

Another fashion-focused podcast is about to add into the queue of your audio playlist, but with a twist: this one is all about the sustainable side of things! Join Vogue’s Sustainability Editor Clare Press and other visionaries in the space as they discuss the problems of the current fashion system (and solutions!). We love Clare for her thoughtful approach to spreading the word about sustainable fashion as well as her way of informing us about the negative side effects of fast fashion. Guests include Dame Ellen MacArthur as well as Orsola De Castro and Nina Marenzi

7. REV On Air - Sustainable Stories

Length: 30-40 min
Published: Every Monday
Noteworthy episode: Sustainable Living With Activist David de Rothschild

Beginning of October, Rêve En Vert launched their very own podcast: REV on Air, hosted by Cora Hilts, co-founder of Rêve En Vert. The podcast addresses key questions around sustainable fashion, natural beauty, wellness, organic food, politics, and conservation and discusses how we can all be living more consciously within these realms. It’s a forum for honest dialogue with designers, business owners, environmentalists, who are progressively breaking down conventions, pushing boundaries and inspiring a new breed of thinking and being that is in harmony with the natural world.
