Podcasts I Like

I have always felt closer to sound. That's why I stuck with learning a guitar longer than painting on a canvas. When I am not performing cognitively demanding tasks e.g. walking in the evenings or cycling to work or in a Grab, I am usually listening to music or podcasts or audio books.

Before I forget, I wanted to compile some of the engaging podcast shows and episodes which I have found to be more engaging and quite a lot more densely packed with information than YouTube videos OR books.

For listening, I use Pocket Casts for my podcasts. The following features won me over - cross device sync of episode progress, web version available, storage space to side load audio books and use the same progress sync feature. The Plus doesn't add much but is a nice way to support the team.
