I am a podcast addict. Unlike the typical podcast listener, I spend a good portion of my day (mostly while commuting, walking, running, doing house chores, etc) listening to one of the close to a hundred different podcasts I’m subscribed to.

I wasn’t very active this week. During the week, I was mostly busy with the usual company stuff. Just as I was making plans for the week, a terrible cold knocked me out for the bigger part of the last 48hrs.
