99% Invisible is about all the thought that goes into the things we don’t think about — the unnoticed architecture and design that shape our world. The show is just not entertaining, but it is also beautifully produced. Even though you are not interested in this podcast, listening to the host’s narration, Roman Mars, will make you listen! He could narrate anything in the world and I would still listen to it.

Wake Up with Jim & Saab
Husband and wife Jim and Saab Magalona podcast talk about parenting and adulting stuff. How they manage their time between being a parent to their baby boy Pancho and also making time for themselves.

Linya Linya Show
Linya-Linya founder and writer Ali Sangalang host this comedy-na-may-kabuluhan show based on the daily experiences of Filipinos. To be honest, I like this show before when Victor Anastasio was still in each episode ( I find him funnier than Ali).
