About The Listener

As of April 2021, the Listener Newsletter will no longer be publishing independently. Please visit TheBrowser.com, our new home, for a daily dose of reading recommendations + a weekly selection of podcast recommendations too.

Welcome to the Listener! Every weekday, paid subscribers get 3 outstanding podcast selections lovingly curated and vividly described by Caroline Crampton. (Free subscribers get one weekly email to enjoy). Paid subscribers also get a special feed that can deliver our choices directly to your favourite podcast app.

Some of our subscribers use The Listener to discover fascinating new podcasts to listen to on their commute, at the gym or while cooking dinner; others just enjoy the newsletter itself as a small daily window onto our weird and wonderful world. However you like your Listener, thanks for joining us.
