Who doesn’t love a good podcast? Whether you’re listening in while you’re on commute, while doing house chores, in the bathroom, or whatever else; it’s a good way to be entertained and informed at the same time! But, while I enjoy entertaining podcasts as much as the next gal, sometimes I just like to look for something more. Something that will inform, entertain, and make an impact. And — I don’t know if it’s just me — searching for something like that is a hit or miss. If you’re also looking for a podcast that checks all the boxes I’ve mentioned (and I’m sure you are since you’re reading this), you’re in luck!
