Podcast Recommendations

I am seriously obsessed with podcasts.  Anyone else?!  If you have never listened to one, you need to!  I love the idea that I can educate and entertain myself in my down time.  When I’m driving, when I’m walking…that’s my favorite.  I love to put my headphones on, put a podcast on, and just walk for an hour.  They are great for long car rides or if you have a commute to and from work.  Or while you’re waiting in the carpool line!  Podcasts are free and if you have an iPhone, just find this icon to search and download podcasts: Here are some of my favs.  I would love to hear if you have listened to any that you […]
