Suppose you are like many Pinoys who are tired of hearing all chismis with no basis about the country's socio-political issues.

If that is the case, then it's time to launch your podcast app and search through some of PhilSTAR L!fe's recommendations for thought-provoking socio-political conversations online. 

These podcast series will not only provide you with a deep dive into what's going on in the government and how it affects the Filipino people, but more so, give you a different perspective on today's hottest news. 

So whether you're a political junkie or simply someone curious about the truth, let these podcasts do the talking for you. 

Teka Teka 


Teka Teka is one of the several series produced by PumaPodcast. What's commendable about Teka Teka News is its ability to package audio news creatively and succinctly. Its audio excerpts, superb choice of background music, and unhurried reportage sets the standard for audio reporting, all in just about 10 minutes or so.  

Catch Me If You Can 


Another series by PumaPodcast, Catch Me If You Can puts a voice behind the sought-after academic paper, Architects of Networked Disinformation by researchers Jonathan Ong and Jason Cabañes. Tune in as Ong and journalist Kat Ventura uncover the outrageous black propaganda machinery running in the country today in a three-part episode that lasts about 40 minutes each.  

The Howie Severino Podcast 


Enlightened and fascinated — this is how listeners of The Howie Severino Podcast would usually feel upon finishing an episode of the podcast series. For an average of 35 minutes per episode, listen to captivating conversations from GMA Network broadcaster Howie Severino and his guests in the likes of Papemelroti's Robert Alejandro, fellow veteran journalist Kara David, and psychologist Ali Gui, among others, who will jumpstart your week with a pocketful of wisdom.  

Paano Ba ‘To: The Podcast 


Aside from giving her audience life advice and new perspectives on life, television host Bianca Gonzalez Intal maximizes her platform to develop a civic discourse on gender inclusivity, Philippine elections, and navigating life’s in-betweens in the point of view of the country’s legends.
