5 Favorite Podcasts for Busy Moms

Mom Life

NOTE: This article was originally published on February, 2017, and has since been updated to include even more awesome podcasts!

Admittedly, I was against Podcasts for a very long time! I’m a visual learner and there’s something about holding a book or reading things from a piece of paper that resonates with me. Fast forward a few years and my tune has changed! I now spend between 2-5 hours in the car a day so I’ve been on the hunt for podcasts to make better use of my time on the road.

Not only are podcasts FREE (which means you get to spend you’re hard-earned money on something FABULOUS), but they’re super-portable. They can go anywhere your phone goes, and let’s face it, busy moms always have their phones with them.  You can listen to podcasts on your commute, at work, at the gym, while you’re shopping, doing housework (although you really should outsource that)! It certainly makes city traffic and long commutes a little less painful.

So if you think free, portable entertainment sounds awesome, here are five of my current favorites!
