When Ed Sheeran isn’t pumping expert love lyrics into our cuffing season hearts, he’s taking a crack at listening to a few popular podcasts that many can’t help but love. And while much of the singer’s discography includes songs about longing and heartbreak, these podcasts offer a break from the pining.
Podsauce was able to catch up with Sheeran recently about some of his favorite listens, and the choices he offers up are nothing short of “A Team” shows.
From Dax Shepard’s wildly famous celebrity interview podcast to Charlamagne Tha God’s debrief with Andrew Schulz on current events, Sheeran clearly knows what he’s doing when it comes to listening to the most enticing shows on the charts right now.
Check out some of Sheeran’s favorite podcasts below, keeping in mind that he tends to jump around and listen to a variety of things on any given day:
Armchair Expert with Dax Shepard
Starting off the list on a high note, Sheeran claims “Armchair Expert with Dax Shepard” as one of his favorites. And who could blame him!? The show has a cult following of people who tune in regularly for Dax’s expert interviews with celebs as well as folks who peruse every once in a while and pick out their favorite stars to listen in on. This is a great podcast to dive into in any order, and episodes run about an hour+ each time – plenty of content to consume!
The Brilliant Idiots
From Charlamagne Tha God and Andrew Schulz comes “The Brilliant Idiots,” a current events show that unpacks the latest from the headlines with hosts that are both brilliant and idiotic – giving a dose of hilarity along the way. Recent episodes cover Dave Chapelle’s Netflix special, Squid Game, and more.
Table Manners with Jessie & Lennie Ware
Songstress Jessie Ware joins her mother Lennie Ware for a lovely sit-down dinner with a slew of esteemed guests. While conversations of course touch on these entertainers’ projects past and present, they also get into deep discussions about food – what they like to eat and what they gravitated towards growing up. Recent episodes featured Emily Ratajkowski, Stanley Tucci, and Laura Jackson.
