Audible Feast’s Best Podcasts of 2015

Audible Feast’s Best Podcasts of 2015

It’s time to compile the best podcasts of 2015!

Thank you for reading Audible Feast’s reviews this year. I started writing in August of 2015 after listening to podcasts for a few months and discovering that no one knew what I was talking about when I said I learned something from a podcast. Every time I listened to a new episode I could think of someone who would love it – from friends and family to coworkers and hairdressers. I then began listening to everything I could get my ears on, constantly searching for new material and sharing my excitement along the way. I have connected with some fabulous personalities and writers through my website and I can’t wait to listen to new stuff and learn more. I’ve included some fun picks that are personal for me – I just get a lot of enjoyment listening to the episodes. Cheers!
