Whether you're in the car, exercising, or getting ready for the day, podcasts are the perfect counterpart to any situation that requires a bit more stimulation and entertainment.

Before you dive head first into a sea of endless podcasts, first think, what kind of topics are you interested in? Do you want to learn about the latest celebrity gossip? Do you want to be inspired to create your own business? Solve a murder mystery? Or cry it out over a love story? All of which I love to do, but all comes down to my mood and my emotional capacity, because sometimes, podcasts get real deep. I'm talking secrets spilled, tears shed, the whole nine yards.

With the amount of podcasts out right now and continuously being added, it's so easy to feel overwhelmed and bogged down by the amount of options.
