Lately I’ve been obsessed with listening to podcasts—while I’m on the bus, walking to school, or even cooking dinner. They’re great if you want to distract yourself by listening to your favourite celebrities goof around or maybe even learn something with an educational one. Speaking of which, these ones should will entertain and/or educate you based on what you’re studying.
