You would think, at this point, when a significant part of our time is spent looking at, sifting through, making sense of, and actively tuning out the endless influx of new information constantly coming at us, that we'd be over talking about it. But no, not at all, it actually just fuels the fire to our incessant obsession to share the very best. The best books, the best articles, the best recipes, the best tools for total transformation, and today, the best ever in the world of high vibe soundwave entertainment with 7 of our absolute favorite podcasts.
Podcasts have quickly become our preferred method of on-the-go information consumption. They’re perfect for long commutes, long flights, long walks (we need more of these), and also perfect for the times in your life when you can’t keep your eyes open to read.
Intentional, inspired, and a very (very) nice contrast to the usual “noise” thrown at our earwaves, in no particular order, the best podcasts ever, courtesy us.
