There is a unique charm in the simplicity of slipping on a pair of headphones, having 1 hour or even just 30 minutes to yourself, hitting play, zoning out and immersing yourself into a world of voices and stories. Audio storytelling or as a version of self-care, I love nothing more than listening to one of my favourite podcasts, whether that is out on a walk or just at home. The best thing about podcasts, there is always an episode for exactly the topic you want to dive in.
I am excited to introduce you to my cherished podcast picks, each offering a delightful journey into diverse realms of knowledge, humour and human experience.
