Recommended Podcasts

I’m a huge fan of podcasts, and I try to listen to a wide variety. Below are my current top picks. I encourage you to give them a listen. They are great, especially for those interested in news and journalism. Of course, some of them are just fun. And, just to give you some context, they are largely listed in order of how frequently I listen, which is somewhat based upon how often new episodes hit the feed.
