I love podcasts, especially writing related ones. It's hard to find time for them sometimes. I mean, I should be writing and I certainly can't multitask. But I squeeze in the time when I can - in between work, while cleaning the flat, going for a walk. Sometimes the podcasts are funny, often inspiring, and I always learn something from them - whether it's about my new indie journey, or something about the craft itself. There are tons of podcasts for writers out there, but here's a short list of the ones I have been listening to this year...
