Joined by multiple guests from different industries (music, health, standup, etc.) you’ll definitely be entertained by this show’s brand of comedy and wit. 

8.) THE HALO-HALO SHOW

No local podcast recommendation list is complete without mentioning this dynamic duo it seems, and rightfully so! Radio presenters Rica Garcia and JC Tevez have been podcasting way before podcasting was this popular and they’ve managed to keep their show fresh and relevant. With their Trending Topics and comedic banter, The Halo-Halo Show is a famous “go-to” when it comes to the local podcasting scene.

11.) INTRAPERSONAL PODCAST

This is probably how most of our 3:00 AM thoughts sound like, only better. The Intrapersonal Podcast by Ryan Joseph is relatable and stands out from the other podcasts on this list because of how short each episode is but it’s definitely not short on making its listeners reflect and feel emotions. Each episode is almost like listening to a song that you can repeat over and over again.

12.) TITA TIBX THE PODCAST

One thing we love about podcasting is it opens much needed conversations on topics that Philippine mainstream media is afraid to tackle like LGBTQIA+ issues, and if you’re looking for funny and meaningful conversation on said issue, this podcast is for you. The #TitaTibx Podcast hosted by Giney Villar and Libay Linsangan is all about the issues and concerns of Filipino lesbians. From gender stereotypes to coming out stories, this podcast is one of the more open and hilarious podcasts in the local scene.
