We’re a social media agency, so we’re somewhat experts in rummaging through content and finding the hidden gems. Instead of keeping these great finds to ourselves, on our team Slack channel, we’ve decided to start a monthly roundup of our favourites.
For the premiere Favola Favourites, we’ve put together our all-time favourite podcasts to share with you. Get ready to start enjoying your commute, and to laugh out loud in public.

He was born Hamish Watson, a surfer dude from Sydney – but he could morph into whatever you needed him to be. Hamish is due to be sentenced to jail for swindling his victims out of more than $7m. But these crimes are just the final pages in a book too thick to bind; for decades he’s duped victims across the entire globe.
How did he do it? How did he evade authorities around the world for so long and what’s he done with all those tens of millions of dollars he stole?
Managing Director of Favola, Alex Jeater, commented: “Who The Hell is Hamish is the best podcast I think I’ve listened to – an amazing story”.
