Ok i'll admit it - I'm a self confessed podcast addict
There, it's out there. I listen to podcasts EVERY SINGLE DAY. Every day, without fail. And 9/10 it's in the car. I probably have at least 50mins of commute per day, which would otherwise be dead time. It was about 2 years ago that I first downloaded a podcast after wondering what all the fuss was about, and haven't looked back since.
I absolutely love the format of podcasts - most are about 40mins in length and typically are either interview or topic based. This means you can get some really good nuggets of information but not get bored to tears turning the pages of a hefty textbook.
So, after trying and testing a few different podcasts over the years, and in no particular order here's our recommendations!
