podcast plugs: exit343design's favorite human interest podcasts

It’s no secret that I consume A LOT of podcasts. Stitcher is my listening app of choice and as of typing this, I have consumed 5336 hours of content since 2018. As someone who works alone most of the time, certain podcasts have also morphed into something like a coworker substitute? A voice to keep me company in an empty studio while I print. It’s kind of creepy to type that, but it’s the truth. My favorite kinds of podcasts are ones that help me to learn or to laugh. Basically, get out of here murder-themed podcasts, I don’t have the brain space for you.

I’d been wanting to do a podcast round-up for a long time. I’m not one to leave reviews on Apple podcasts, so I figured writing about my favorites here, to share with others, would be the next best thing! When I sat down to make a list, four distinct categories emerged: comedy, business, informational, and human interest. As such, I’ll be releasing each list as a different blog post. Enjoy!
