When it comes to consuming audio content, pretty much nothing can compare with a great podcast. It's the best way to get both educated and be entertained while accomplishing other tasks like commuting to and from work, going to the gym, or doing chores around the house. Once you find a few good ones, you'll be hooked... Here are few we couldn't recommended more.
