Today’s show is sponsored by Audible. If I’m not listening to a podcast, I’m listening to an audiobook.

I devour audiobooks while I drive my car to and from interesting hiking destinations, clean my house, fix dinner, do the dishes, fold laundry and workout. There are so many good books that I want to read and I feel a lot more productive when I can multi-task by listening as I work.

Right now we are offering a free 30-day trial to Audible + a free audiobook download just by clicking this link.
