The power of podcasts
Evolving from humble beginnings in 2003, podcasting has become an unstoppable force and show no signs of slowing down. From the White House to your next-door neighbor, everyone seems to have a podcast. 42 million Americans listen to podcasts weekly. That’s five times more than the number of people who go to the movies! (1)
I am a serial podcast listener. It’s never been easier to find, subscribe and listen to literally thousands of podcasts on every topic. I listen to everything from news, business, comedy to health. Recently though, I’ve been listening to a lot of different plant-based podcasts. I find them a useful tool for inspiration and a great way to stay educated and informed on all things plant-based.
So, spice up your daily commute, work-out or household chores with my top 5 plant-based podcasts (be warned… they’re addictive!).
