Happy International Podcast Day!


Whether you listen in the car, while you work, or just as a way to pass the time during quarantine, podcasts are a source of education, entertainment, and information. Over 50% of the US population has heard a podcast and there are over 1,000,000 podcasts out there to choose from. There are plenty of podcasts for association professionals that are great resources while planning your next virtual event, developing an eLearning strategy, or as a way to keep on top of things in your industry. If you’re looking for the next podcast to listen to during your workout, here are just a few we’re listening to on International Podcast Day:
