How to pass the time during this unprecedented time in human history is rather a big question, right? If you ask your mom, she’ll tell you about playing Words With Friends on her iPad and watching reruns of Ellen. Your friend will tell you how she’s just casually done back to back yoga classes in her living room. And your co-workers will be Instagramming their happy hours. But, honestly, there is no right thing to be doing right now with all this free time. Yes, it is a good idea to watch the news, maybe brush up on a second language, FaceTime with your grandparents- all great ideas! However, we’d like to offer up a whole other branch of pass time that you might not have even thought about. We’d like to suggest a few podcasts to help you escape. Don’t worry, there’s a podcast for any mood!
