One Piece, Two Ways || Sweater Vest

Can we take a quick minute to ignore the sweater vest and all of the beautiful greenhouse foliage to talk about my addiction to podcasts? It’s real and it’s keeping me sane during this year of transition when it feels like I am always in my car.  I only do non-fiction and I feel like every commute is now an opportunity to learn something new or about someone new.  The other day I had an accounting question and googled it with the word podcast after and boom!
