My Top 7 Podcast Recommendations

It’s super weird how things often come in threes… in the last week I’ve, rather randomly, had three friends ask me for podcast recommendations.

And then on a podcast this week I heard that it’s #TRYPOD (Try a Podcast) month – where podcasters are encouraging friends and family to try listening to podcasts if they don’t already.

Unlike how I feel about books – so many books, so little time! – I feel that there is so much time in my day when I could listen to a podcast (commuting, exercising, walking the dog, feeding baby, before bed) and not enough good podcasts to fill it with (or, rather, not enough that I know about).

So, I feel compelled to share 7 of my favourites with YOUS – and ask that you recommend me some goodies back!

Here goes…

7 podcasts that will make your commute, gym or housework time wayyyyy more fun!

Maya Angelou Quotes to Live By

Friends, it’s World Book Day!

Being in marketing, and being a huge book nerd, I used to be aware of hugely important national dates like this weeks in advance. But because I’m living under a parenting rock that allows me no access or insight into popular culture (seriously, what happened at the Oscars? Who is Ed Sheeran dating? What the heck is Let it Shine?) and most of the time I have no idea what day of the week it is, let alone if it’s a special day, this year’s World Book Day almost passed me by. SAD TIMES.

But alas! I took the little dude to Rhyme Time at the library today (social calendar highlight don’t you know) and the rhyming lady told us it was WBD and I got all excited because I just love and adore books and all that they provide and offer to us. Thanks little library lady.

And! I did just FINISH A BOOK (patting myself on the back while typing) and I loved it and I wanted to share some of the quotes that I highlighted as I was reading (yep I did that, #nerdalert).

That book was Letter to My Daughter by Maya Angelou, and it was BEAUTIFUL – and here are my favourite quotes!

Enjoy,
