How Podcasts can be Good for You

Lately I have been in a design stage for a new podcast with close friends. We are not ready to share it with the world, but we’re very much looking forward to the day we do. It’s been one of the most exciting projects to develop in my creative career — a podcast with me and my friends.

I have slowly taken to listening to podcasts myself in the place of talk radio, NPR, and music. I make time for music, but when my mind is unpreoccupied I prefer a good podcast.
