Podcasts are everywhere nowadays – even more at present!

A podcast is like listening to a radio show, where it’s just you and the people on the podcast in the room. The great thing about them is that you can listen to them whenever you want and you don’t need to watch anything.

To help you navigate through them, we have attempted, humbly, to compile for you a small list of podcasts worth a try. At least, we have tried them for you  – Enjoy the read and stay safe.
