There are two staples to my daily routine that I simply cannot go without; the first of which is a massive cup of coffee in the morning (I have a feeling you can relate) and the second is a riveting podcast. The beauty of podcasts is that they are diverse and can fit into any time of my day. 

Podcasts are my favorite way to learn something new. And thankfully, there are endless options out there to explore and listen to. With countless podcasts at our fingertips, it is easy to find great conversations on your favorite topics. While I love a wide variety of podcasts that fit my expanding interests, I find myself gravitating towards audio which gets me motivated and ready to check off my daily goal of learning something new.
