Some of life’s greatest joys are the simple things. A warm bed on a cold morning. Finding a banknote in an old coat. Discovering a brilliant new podcast. Wilson FM can make that last one a regular occurrence.
Wilson describes itself as a “podcast magazine”. Once a week, its editors present a carefully curated selection of podcasts based around a particular theme. That theme could be stand-up comedy, or epic fails, or prison life, or religious cults, or the humble beginnings of today’s podcast kings and queens. It doesn’t really matter. Whatever the theme, the chosen episodes are fascinating and often surprising.
Wilson FM prides itself on taking a very different approach. It looks more like a magazine than a podcast player, it doesn’t demand you register and it isn’t desperate for you to subscribe to things or share them on social media.
As the editors put it: “We’re new, we look good, we speak to you like a real person, and we’re most definitely not for everyone.” It feels more like a regular letter from a friend than a commercial operation, a weekly episode of “I heard this and thought of you”.
Wilson FM’s strength lies in showing you podcasts you might otherwise never have listened to or even heard of, and its choices could be as welcome as that fiver you just found in your winter jacket.
