We’ve amassed our favourite podcasts of the moment and here they are just for you – share with a friend or keep for yourself.

Why do we love podcasts? Something to listen to on the way to work, learning on the go, learning without use of your eyes (you can even close your eyes!).

Why we love podcasts

You can listen to them on the road or virtually anywhere; can close your eyes and de-stress when listening; can listen while you work, while you clean the house, can listen together with friends; they provide insight and entertainment on top of energy and encouragement; they free you from the radio’s schedule; they mean you won’t get sick of listening to your same Spotify playlist on repeat (you’ll cherish the times when you listen to your music even more when you do it less); and most importantly of all they allow you to continue your education in your own comfort.
