18 Podcasts to Listen to on the Go

I have been wanting to do this for awhile, but my list keeps multiplying. I have become a true podcast-er, if there is such a title. On my long drives to work, on the nights where I can’t sleep and when I need a moment to hear other’s voices besides my own, podcasts are my go-to. I’ve realized a few things from my frequent listenings: I am very intrigued by successful people and their stories of uprising, questions no one asks about the world and improving my sense of self. All this into consideration, I have compiled a list of my favorite podcasts for all the “times when” with the utmost honesty. Scroll for your new listening pleasures.
