Perfect for long trips, to listen while you’re cleaning, to learn and grow – this list of best podcasts was put together for you!
Podcasts have been around for years now but it feels like all of the sudden they are what everyone is talking about. I am obsessed with listening to them while I’m working and traveling. On Instagram I asked for favorites on my Stories and thought it would be fun to share them here, in one list.
What is a podcast?
The term podcast is two words put together – pod and broadcast. Pod is from iPod, which means it’s portable and you can listen to it anywhere.
There is normally an interviewer and an interviewee. But some podcasts shed light on news, politics, etc.
You can listen to a podcast in several different ways – on your computer, from your phone, mp3player, tablet and more.
Here are my suggestions for what to listen to a podcast with:
- Bose Noise Cancelling Headphones – I invested in these because of all the traveling I was doing and they are my absolute favorite. SO comfortable and truly noise cancelling. I can’t speak highly enough of these headphones.
- Apple AirPods – it felt like this was the gift everyone was giving this year!
