I love listening to podcasts during work breaks, walks around town, chores and exercising. There are so many high quality, informative, entertaining and FREE podcasts out there with really interesting and relevant content for both my professional and personal life.
I have a nice mix of podcasts right now on topics such as global politics, economics, anthropology and user experience. Podcasts about consulting and running a small business are super relevant for me right now as I enter my 10th month of self-employment.
Here are my current fav’s:
