Today, I am sharing (6) can’t miss podcasts for bloggers, creatives, and those seeking inspiration in life.

October 23, 2020

I was never a podcast girl until after I graduated from my Master’s in May of 2019. That was when God instructed me to begin my own podcast (which I want to begin planning for Season 2). If I can be honest, being a PhD student has not allowed the time or the desire to read as much for pleasure. Nonetheless, I still feel the need to lean more about things that I am interested in outside of academia.

One of my favorite things to do when I’ve hit a creative slump is to listen to podcasts Lately, I’ve been listening to podcasts that feed me spiritually, emotionally, and educate me about life as a business woman. Today, I am sharing (6) can’t miss podcasts for bloggers, creatives, and those seeking inspiration in life.
