I still love Podcasts. I find them still entertaining, educational, thought-provoking, and easy to consume, regardless of time and place.

I composed an exhaustive list of 27 different Podcasts which I liked a lot on September 2016. Now it is good time to revisit that list, and see how my favourites’ list has evolved.

And finally, my Podcast player of choice still is the brilliant Overcast.
