Balance mag now do a podcast, and it's our latest recommendation to pass the journey

Upgrade your commute

the Balance podcast

You’ve probably seen Balance magazine on your travels (it’s distributed throughout the Underground every month) and our latest favourite commute-filler is their weekly podcast, which has the same ethos as the mag: to make wellness accessible to everyone.

Hosted by deputy editor James Gill and sometimes joined by editor Sophie Scott, each episode combines uplifting news stories, wellness tips and celebrity interviews, all with a focus on health and happiness.

The podcast’s category tags are health and self-help, which is accurate but probably don’t do the chats justice for how warm, amusing and interesting they are. Gill is a funny and natural interviewer (he also runs and MCs his own comedy night) and the guests are a varied bunch of celebrated names in entertainment, wellness, sport, business and more - all with something inspiring to say.

So far they include Ricky Gervais, talking about his cracking Netflix series After Life (if you haven’t watched it yet, do!) and its themes of life, love, laughter and loss; psychology professor and best-selling author Richard Wiseman on luck, teamwork and shooting for the moon, and comedian Matt Forde on finding hope and positivity amidst Brexit fatigue. Plus, a particularly moving interview with gold medal-winning athlete-turned-motivational speaker Kris Akabusi.
