extremely wavy podcasts that lit up my brain or some other body part in 2018

Podcasts are an extremely cheap form of self-care if you have a smart phone and an internet connection. They can liven up your commute, make you laugh while changing a diaper, or be a sense of community you might be missing on a soulless commute.

You can find all these episodes on my friend Erik’s podcast app, Breaker, where you can follow my podcast recommendations and comments. If you like these, please follow me there for more recommendations and comments! If you're already on Breaker, message me so I can follow you.
