I love me a good podcast.
They're just the best resources for learning on the go and require more concentration - to fill in the visual blanks - than bingeing on Netflix.
Once upon a time I'd only ever have Triple J on the radio, but these days, all passengers in my car or visitors to my house are subject to my latest Podcast obsession!
I'm not talking True Crime or Fiction at all. I'm talking Business Advice, Interviews, and a whole load of Oprah!
Here are my current faves, but I'm always looking for recommendations. Please leave a comment below with the Podcasts currently in your listening Library.
