Popping on Podcasts Instead of Records
By Maggie Grimason [ Tue Feb 9 2016 4:27 PM ]
I'm guilty of being wayyyy allured by the idea of multitasking. As such, I'm wayyyy into podcasts. The idea of learning while I run, while I fall asleep, while I drive or cook dinner really appeals to me. I'm pretty much just as interested in hearing about my friend's favorite podcasts as I am hearing about their favorite books and records.
In the hopes that you might be just as interested, here's what's in rotation for me on the regular.

And I like my information on these topics best when it is delivered by people whose ethics jive with mine. Feminist, body positive, smart talk about well being.
To the Best of Our Knowledge From Wisconsin Public Radio and Public Radio International, the far ranging, always fascinating topics covered here are approached with acumen and insight.
Now, join me in my obsessive multitasking.
