Looking for business tips? What about information on a niche movie genre? True crime stories?
There’s a podcast about pretty much everything these days, and with good reason!
One of our favourite things about podcasts is the fact that you can bring them with you wherever you go! Whether you’re working at your computer, biking to a friend’s house or tidying your office, you can put on your headphones and listen to a podcast episode or two. And, as an added bonus, podcasts are usually free! Where else can you find a constant stream of free entertainment?
In addition to the entertainment factor, they’re also a great source of information and inspiration. You can listen to podcasts that will help you learn new skills and level up your career.
There are also mental benefits to podcasts. It’s been said that, since podcasts stimulate mental imagery more intensely than watching or reading, it forces listeners to use their imagination more.
At Hustle + Charm, we’re huge fans of podcasts! We’ve compiled a few of our absolute faves, from the inspirational to the business-oriented, in no particular order.
