If you are like me, then sometimes you get bored with listening to music at work. Over the past couple of years, podcasts have been on the rise and some damn good stuff happens on them. I have a ton of podcasts I listen to, but these are my favorite to listen to at work. I find them to not be too distracting that I cannot accomplish what I need to in the day, but distracting enough to keep me going through the day. You know what I mean? I like using a podcast app to keep track of all of the ones I listen to, and I can be listening in my car on my way to work, put it on pause, and pick it back up when I get into the office. I use Overcast, which is available on itunes.
