Whether we’re browsing through blogs (here are a few faves) or binge-watching documentaries, we always love learning about what’s happening in the wellness world. New kinds of superfoods, inspiring health challenges, crazy ways to bio-hack our own bodies…we’re down with it all. And one of our favorite ways to soak up new information on the go is by listening to podcasts. Part talk show and part virtual classroom, these shows always end up teaching us something new – and help pass the time during a workout or long commute in the meantime (a major plus!). Plug your headphones in, turn the volume up, and check out eight of our go-to healthy living podcasts…
