The Best 5 Podcasts to Listen to While Working from Home 2

Podcasts have been popular for quite some time now, but I never thought I would ever become someone who listens to podcasts regularly. I have always been very visual. So the idea of listening to someone talking to me without any images sounded boring. It wasn't until a few years ago that I decided to give podcasts a chance. And to my surprise, I quickly fell in love with them.

Podcasts became my favorite thing to listen to on my way to work. They are a great tool to learn new things; podcasts can enhance creativity and motivation and make you a better employee. Unfortunately, when I moved two minutes away from my current job, I basically stopped listening to podcasts. And, since I also work part-time from home, my commute days are over, and with them my habit of listening to podcasts.

However, because of the current situation with covid, I found myself spending more time at home. While I had more time to work on myself, I also had to face the reality of having "too much time" in a day. A time that I wanted to spend wisely.

I like reading, I love listening to music, and I enjoy watching TV. But at some point, I realized that I could do something else with my time. That is when I rediscovered how much I could enjoy a podcast. 

Browsing the net, I found some podcasts that you should give them a chance. Here is a list of some of my favorite podcasts to listen to while working from home.
