Best Podcasts I Listen To

In a world of YouTube and Snapchat, where video is the primary format of communication, podcasts are the most under-appreciated ones. Modern day podcasts are the successors of once ever present and ever dominant radio shows that informed, inspired and educated entire generations. Podcasts allow you to hear the voices of so many different people, which is important in the current climate of our society. Not only can you access viewpoints both alike and different from your own, but you have knowledge at your fingertips and the ability to learn new things. Podcasts are a very important form of media that should be valued now and in the years to come.
