Podcasts are one of my favorite things that I’ve discovered in the past year. I love listening to them when I am doing something that doesn’t require very much brain activity or something that is very boring. I’ve found that driving is a great time to listen to a podcast, especially on a long drive. I know that I will definitely be catching up on my podcasts when it comes time to drive the 5 1/2 hrs home. Another great time to listen to them is when you are doing things like cleaning or painting. I listened to so many podcasts while I was helping my parents renovate their new house this summer. It makes something boring, like painting, much more interesting. I know I’m a little late to the podcast party, but I still wanted to share some of my favorites.

A common theme with my favorite podcasts is that, for the most part, they are produced by NPR. If you have any favorite podcasts that you subscribe to, let me know!
