Podcasts are one of the best mediums for getting information straight to our brains. This is mainly because unlike books or tv where you have to sit and give it your full attention, podcasts can go with you anywhere. They can keep you company when you’re washing dishes, walking the dog, or driving long distances.

They are also extremely useful in the time of social distancing. They can distract us, help keep us informed, and offer an escape.

For Podsters in the know, here are 8 local podcasts we love by some people we know and respect, plus 8 more that we’re just hooked on.

Do you have one that you enjoy but isn’t listed? Don’t hesitate to drop us a note in the comments or send your podcast favs to
