While blog posts are great, there's also a lot of incredible content out there in the form of Podcasts. If you’re not familiar, Podcasts are recorded audio discussions or interviews that anyone can create and that you can listen to on your smartphone or computer. They're perfect for getting your daily dose of inspiration wherever you might be, and whenever you have an idle moment.
The problem with anyone being able to create a Podcast means that there are a lot of low quality Podcasts out there. That's why we have sifted through hundreds of them to expose the gold.
