I feel like we are in a podcast revolution. Its like we have an endless stream of audio content within just a couple clicks through your phone or computer. Best part? THEY ARE FREE! 

If you love reading but find yourself too busy to set aside quality reading time, try a podcast! Have a hard time keeping up with the news or sports? Try a podcast! There is something here for everybody. I want to introduce you to a couple of my favorite podcasts periodically so that maybe you’ll love them as much as I do.

The first one I’d like to share with you is NPR’s morning podcast named Up First.

This is the first thing I listen to every weekday when I get up in the morning. Their goal is to bring you the most important news of the day in about 10 minutes. By tuning in every day, I always feel well informed on what is going on around the United States and the world before I even step out the door.  The hosts are clear and concise as they work through the day’s news, often times bringing in back up to better explain things like tax reform, policy debates, and judicial hearings. If you’re anything like me, you need those things explained to you in order to know what in the hell is going on. There is obviously a lot happening in our world today and people are becoming more involved in politics, social movements, and other events taking place. Things change fast, and this podcast will help you keep pace.

The average commute for someone in the US is about 25 minutes. If your drive is about this long, you’ll even have time to jam your tunes before getting to work (This is always one of my go-to jams to get going for the day).

So there it is! Check out Up First every weekday morning on the NPR One app or on iTunes!

P.S. – There isn’t time in the 10-12 minutes for political bias, so don’t start giving me any BS about that. Leave your “party lines” at the door and get informed.
