10 Fascinating Podcasts: Part One

As a very big fan of audiobooks, I was probably always likely to love podcasts too. When I tried them I found that I really did and have become pretty hooked. I find them easy to dip into and because I subscribe to quite a few I can often find a 5 minute listen for when I'm making a cup of tea or a 60 minute listen for when I want a nice long soak or walk. Here's a round up of some of my favourites (in no particular order), although I listen to many others and hope my list will keep expanding!
