I spend about an hour and a half each day commuting to work at my Library. I used to read but found this difficult on full buses and obviously out of the question if I drive to work. Then a year or two ago I discovered podcasts.

I love listening to podcasts on my way to work. It’s a great way to wake up my brain and to hear an interesting story or learn something new.

I’ve found lots of favourites too. Some of my must-listens are:

Science & ‘Interesting Facts’ Podcasts

Business and Economics Podcasts

Interesting stories about the world

I’m always looking for new podcasts to listen to, so share your favourite podcasts in the comments so I can add them to my list!
