I am a huge lover of podcasts. So, now that I live in LA again after almost 20 years in New York where I wasn’t driving, I’m obsessed with podcasts and driving. I don’t care how long the drive is anymore. And I have a few favorites. DENtalks is a wonderful podcast. She gets very deep and real. I love the interviewer. I also love Woke & Wired with a woman named Ksenia. That’s an excellent podcast. I also love Ancient Wisdom Today with my friend Shaman Durek. It’s a super inspiring podcast. I put that on whenever I need to feel charged up.
