4 Podcasts for Creatives & Aspiring Entrepreneurs

There was a time I had NO idea what to do with the podcast app on my iPhone. Fast forward five years, and my phone ran out of space at one point because I hit subscribe to too many. (I've since learned how to manage my downloads better and only subscribe to the few that I listen to faithfully.)  

I like to tune in when I'm getting ready for work, cooking, and sometimes even when I'm out running. It's easier to go further when you're enthralled in a story. The content I listen to varies but as a freelance creative, I'm attracted to shows that tackle self-development, creativity, and business. Podcasts have become a huge part of my free education, so today I'm passing along four that are always in my lineup.
