I have a not-so-new-found love for Podcasts. I used to be pretty much unable to go anywhere without having music on, and now I honestly listen to podcasts more often. I just get them on the normal podcasts app on iPhone, which is perfect. I listen to so many different genres and love them all, but here are my favourite educate-yourself-for-adult-life podcasts:
Consumer Team with Martin Lewis.I am Martin Lewis' self proclaimed biggest fan. He is straight forward, straight talking, and seems like generally a nice guy. He covers timely topics and has a laugh with it.
Millennial Money MattersIf you want to up your money-stocks-shares knowledge, this is a wonderful podcast. They buzz anyone who uses any sort of complicated word or abbreviation so you don't have to feel silly if you don't understand something, which I love.
The Guardian's Audio Long ReadsI enjoy prose. I enjoy essays. I don't really enjoy books, but I enjoy a 4 page essay with a beginning middle and end. I enjoy it even more if I don't have to put any effort into reading it. That's basically what this is. A concept, not a preach, not an interview, presented in an easy to understand, interesting, and in depth form. Like any newspaper, it has a political bias, and it's quite obvious from the titles which episodes will be more politically heavy handed and which will hardly touch on it, but it's definitely well worth a listen.
