Podcasts We’re Listening to in 2017

Posted January 26, 2017 by swimcreative

Someone once said, “When you don’t have time to sit, turn your ears to a podcast.” Ok, we totally made up the quote, but it sums up nicely what we firmly believe. Sometimes, sitting down to read gets a bit… impossible.

Thank goodness for podcasts. They help us get lost in an abundance of worlds and ideas. Through podcasts, we learn new things, we’re compelled to act, we delve into someone else’s perspective. All while we’re multi-tasking, or just taking a long walk along Lake Superior.

Here are few we’d recommend:

The original: This American Life

To learn something new: TEDTalks
