100 Podcasts: an entry to other communities

I’m working on notes for a panel discussion on empathetic leadership and one question was about tips for increasing empathy and embracing diversity. One key tip I have is to listen to a wide variety of podcasts. I listen to podcasts while driving, walking, and whenever I am not working. I listen to music when I’m working and can multitask. The following are podcasts that I’ve either completed the series or actively listen to.

It’s hard to link to podcasts, as it depends on your favorite player. Use this as a source of inspiration to learn something new. I’m continually updating my podcast list. I’ve noticed, from creating this list, several topics I’ve been missing. What are your favorites? Leave a suggestion in the comments.
