Podcasts & Audible

Two things I’m in love with right now…Amazon’s Audible app and Apple Podcasts. Seems like we’re always on the go and at the end of the day when I finally get a few minutes to myself, the last thing I want to do is concentrate even more on reading. If I have a day off, … More Podcasts & Audible

O-N-E
