19 Podcasts Pharmacists Should be Listening to Today

Podcasts have been around for a while now, a quick google search has podcasting, known then as audio-blogging starting as early as 2004! Like most pharmacists, I commute to and from work every day. You’re lucky if your commute is less than 30 minutes per round trip!

I have done it all, at first I was listening to music, but you can only take so much of today’s top hits! Thanks to my wife, I then discovered National Public Radio (NPR). NPR is great, it has a wide variety of programs throughout the day. I only catch the early morning and evening broadcasts during my trip to and from work.

Recently, I began to listen to podcasts as an alternative to the music and NPR. And it’s like a breath of fresh air, there are so many topics to choose from, naturally as a pharmacist, I gravitate toward pharmacy. Additionally, as a personal finance blogger, I wanted to learn more about personal finance topics such as investment, side hustle and passive income ideas.

In addition to listening to these podcasts during my commute, I’ve also incorporated this new routine to my exercise routine. Anyways, without further ado, here are the 19 podcasts pharmacists should be listening to today.
