We must admit, we are a little late to the podcast party and jumped on when they seemed uncool.
When someone originally suggested to listen to podcasts instead of scrolling through the pages of our favorite blogger, the idea seemed ridiculous! But now we have a new found love for these crazy cool and practical digital audio files.
Whether you’re busy prepping meals in the kitchen, on your way to work, relaxing after a busy day, or looking for a more personal outlet of inspiration, there’s a podcast for you!
So below we’ve put together a list of 8 podcasts you need to download this summer for whatever the mood!
