Browsing for something to read while waiting for my Uber driver to arrive, I came across an interesting article that benefits me. Recently, I have been listening to podcasts and found that some channels are really beneficial and educational.

Nici from Lost For Words seems to think so as well with her article on the best business podcasts.

If you’re starting a business or looking to grow your small business, podcasts can be a great way to research. Business podcasts for start-ups are an amazing tool for the busy entrepreneur because you can listen to them on the go, during a tea break or while you catch up on admin.
