Microphone For International Podcast Day

Fun fact about me? I am a content junkie. Some of my personal goals this year relate to consuming a variety of content, including reading 100 books and increasing the number of podcasts I listen to regularly.

That’s why I’m excited to bring you what will undoubtedly be one of my favorite listicles this year: 20 podcasts my Two Rivers Marketing peers and I are listening to in our free time. Get a glimpse into our associates’ interests and see if your favorites made our list!
