Podcasts, I’m sure most of us have our favourites (This American Life, 99% Invisible, Freakonomics Radio and Serial are some of mine), but did you know that there are lots of amazing business related podcasts that are not super heavy in industry talk and can give you some great information to stay current on trends and developments in your area of study? Plus, you can listen to them anywhere, whether you are on the beach, on your way to work, or even while you are at the gym. The following are just a few of the many, many options available to you, absolutely free. If you want to be kept up-to-date over the summer these are a great place to start.
