Podcasts: the recommendations

I have a noisy mind. Really noisy. Which means I avoided podcasts for a long time… who needs more voices in your ears when you’re already dealing with hundreds of conversations going on at once in your head, right?

But suddenly podcasts were all anybody talked about and I realised I might be missing a trick. Not having a clue where to start, I asked for recommendations and this is what has come back.

I’m sharing the tips in case you’re a podcast novice like me and have no idea what’s out there or what is good. From what I can see it’s a mix of business, feminism, sustainability and comedy filth. Sounds about right.
