Since losing vision, I have had a hard time getting into the audiobook thing. My mind wanders, I get bored, and I feel like I should be doing 14 other things besides listening to a 250 page novel. I don’t have a favorite author or genre, and perhaps that’s part of my problem. I needed something that was going to hold my audio interest! Something with pizzazz, positivity, and personality. My son suggested I try listening to podcasts. He downloaded a few for me to get started with, and I’ve been listening to them ever since!
Of course I’m all about listening to the blind tech and lifestyle stuff, but I also enjoy anything along the lines of personal growth & development, motivation, and encouragement. If you’re looking for some effortless boosts of inspiration in your day….below are 22 podcasts you might find of interest! (Compiled by Jessica Sletmo on The Edit.)

You don’t need to give up your favorite playlist, instead, try this hack – plug-in your music when you’re busy (say working at your desk or sweating in the gym), but when you are free (walking to the station or commuting to work), load a podcast.
