Getting Into Podcasts!

I’ve been a podcast affectionado for the past four or five years, and I realize many people haven’t jumped on that bandwagon and think they might be really missing out on great information. There are podcasts on almost every subject you might be interested in. The few I recommend for this new year are: Audible Dharma, Happier with Gretchin Rubin, Invisibilia (a podcast about the marvels of our brains,) and if you’d like to follow riveting stories there are two I’ve listened to that were super interesting: STown and The Serial. I’ve recently found a great language podcast called Coffee Break Spanish which helps people improve their language skills. They also have various other languages. There’s a handy how to article on podcast listening below. If you are already a podcast fan and have a favorite, please share it with me. I’m always looking for new ones!

Sincerely,
