These past few months, I've come to the realization that I'm not so used to a quiet environment. I know it can be different for some people, but to be honest, sometimes I feel so unmotivated to do my tasks without any white noise. While some prefer silent vlogs or music as their background noise, I like listening to podcasts. It feels like I have someone to talk to while I'm doing my daily deliverables and I always learn something new—from adulting lessons, to social issues, and even pop culture.
Below, I listed some local podcasts worth listening to, depending on what you're interested in. Check them out!
