One of the things I absolutely love about podcasts is how convenient and accessible they are. They make every topic you can imagine, from deep and thought-provoking to super humorous,  available in an easy-to-consume way. Commuting to a meeting in the city and want to catch up on current events? Listen to a podcast. Going to the gym and need to kick off your morning with a bit of inspiration? Listen to a podcast. Need some advice on how to go from working an unfulfilling job to truly doing what you love? Listen to a podcast.
