5 Podcasts To Unleash Your Inner Creative [And Drastically Improve Your Productivity]

ICYMI, 2020 was the year of the audio interaction.  Apps like Audible, Spotify, podcasts, books on tape and the great social media disruptor —Clubhouse— blasted onto the scene.  And while several of these platforms had been around for a bit, it seemed like their popularity soared once most of the world went into lockdown.  

And why not? With many of us sheltered in place for much of the year, sooner or later we had literally streamed all of the things and turned to platforms which enriched us while entertaining us.

As the developers of Clubhouse reminded us, something special happens when humans stop to sit down and engage in meaningful discussions.  Discovery, creativity, inspiration and reenergized ambition all are sparked when these conversations are done correctly.

But don’t worry if you’re late to the game, today we’re going to cover the five best podcasts to unleash your inner creative and drastically improve your productivity.  So if you are looking for ways to kickstart some serious change, then look no further than these amazing podcasts.
