My Top 10 Podcasts

At the beginning of this year I really got into listening to podcasts.   It was a great a way to pass the time driving to work.  I don't have a crazy long drive, usually 40 - 50 minutes to work and up to an hour home because of traffic right now.  Some people spend longer driving I know, but I hate driving.  On the plus side, as a result of all my time in the car I feel like I am a more educated person now, which I can't complain about and I am better off than just tuning into the radio.  I think it all started when Young House Love launched a podcast, I'm a fan of YHL.  From there my interests spread out, and I have a friend who made some great recommendations.  If you are a podcast newbie I highly recommend the following - and I am giving my take in one sentence.  Could I write more about each one of these, yes.  Will I? No.
