Words: Deb Caine
Less distracting than the telly and more purposeful than cheesy tunes: plugging into a podcast can be a great way to learn about the spiritual laws, find daily inspiration or indeed enjoy a slice of inner peace. And best of all, this can all be achieved while cooking the tea, walking to work or by adding a spoonful of mindfulness into our early morning cuppa. Yes, tuning into a podcast can truly be multitasking at its finest, and if it’s a good match for your star sign, even better!
But with so many podcasts to choose from, it can be hard to know where to begin. So to get you started, we’ve selected some fab soulful and spiritual offerings, from established names to newer, hidden gems…based on what stars you were born under. Thank us after you’ve listened!
