Over the last couple of years, podcasts have become a very popular alternative to audiobooks and music to jam to. I for one love having a podcast playing in the background when I want to deviate from my latest thriller or just not in the mood to listen to music. Because I like to find interesting podcasts from all themes, I thought I would compile a collection to suggest to others, so they can enjoy them as well!

Stuff You Should Know
Two men research and answer some of the random questions of the world. Really interesting about ‘stuff you should know’ that you didn’t think you needed to in the first place such as how ventriloquism works, where nicknames came from, and the skinny on toilet paper.

In a way similar to ‘Stuff You Should Know”, but digital and social media-related. Answering all the questions you may think of but may not bother to answer yourself, or just plain don’t know.
