Tez Ilyas’ Top 5 Podcasts

Tez Ilyas

The Team at Pod Bible have been looking through the magazine back catalogue with more than a hint of nostalgia. With so many great articles and interviews, we thought it was time to make our archive accessible by sharing them here on the website. Here is a For The Love of Pod article from Issue #007 of the Pod Bible magazine.

Which podcast do our favourite celebrities listen to?  We asked actor and comedian Tez Ilyas for the 5 podcasts he could not live without. 

news podcast The ArgumentTHE ARGUMENT

The New York Times podcast sees a liberal, a centrist and a conservative have an engaging, articulate and balanced debate on two of the big US news stories of the week. It’s massively informative and leaves you feeling optimistic about our ability to engage with each other despite our differences. A must listen. Listen now on Spotify >>>

comedy podcast quotas fullQUOTAS FULL

In a medium that lacks diversity, I present to you Quotas Full. A brilliant no-holds-barred pod, that sees a group of comedians (who are good friends) get together to discuss everything from racial injustice to wedding etiquette in a hilarious way, completely infiltered. Bonus: I’m on it occasionally! Listen now on Spotify >>>

crime podcast In The DarkIN THE DARK

My favourite true crime pod. and that’s saying something because I love that genre! The second season in particular is spectacular and leave you in awe of just how corrupt the American justice system is, but also how amazing investigative journalism can be. Listen now on Spotify >>>

sleep podcast Sleep with meSLEEP WITH ME

Okay… so this one is specifically for insomniacs, or anyone who has trouble sleeping for any reason. It sees our narrator drone on in the most monotonous of voices for about an hour. I rarely get past 15 mins before I’m asleep. It works! Listen now on Spotify >>>

Tez ILyas podcast Tez TalksTEZ TALKS

Ok, this one is mine. It’s my BBC Radio 4 stand-up show. Am I biased? Yes. But… it’s bloody good. There’s sixteen 15-min episodes, split over 3 series and I couldn’t be more proud of them. I satirise and poke fun at a range of different subjects and everyone who’s heard it raves about it. Let me know what you think! Listen now on Spotify >>>

We hope you enjoy these podcasts recommended by Tez Ilyas. Read more For The Love of Pod articles in the Pod Bible magazine, which you can read online or buy in our shop.
