My Favorite Podcasts (Summer 2020)

If we're not in the Golden Age of Podcasts, than we are getting there.  The boom of podcasting coincided with the boom of the smartphone.  More podcasts keep popping up everyday.  Which brings up the topic of time.  How many podcasts you subscribe too, and how to find the time to listen.  For me, finding the time is always a challenge.  Between music listening, TV viewing and life itself, making room for another listening experience has proven a challenge.  Which is why I scroll through many of my subscribed podcasts and pick out the topics that interest me the most for that week (most podcasts are weekly, some bi-weekly, rarely monthly).

Below are a list of the Podcasts I subscribe to as of this post.  Some are more essential listens than others, but all are worth checking in on:
