Podcasts and connection

I love podcasts. Most times, if I have a lot of work to do and I just don’t want to do it I put in my earbuds and fire up a podcast and get super productive whilst not paying attention to anything other than what’s in my ears. I love This American Life and Serial, so when I saw S-Town*…
