A digital nomad podcast is an excellent way to embrace the age-old mantra pushed by high-achievers: always be learning.
Podcasts don’t take up any space in your backpack, and you can listen to them offline on the airplane, in the gym, or on the bus. This helps since the digital nomad lifestyle can make it difficult to learn consistently in traditional ways. After all, carrying and reading books about digital nomadism and remote work is challenging when you’re on the road.
Load up the following podcasts into Sticher or your podcasting client of choice. See which of these podcasts resonate best with you. Even if you haven’t become a digital nomad yet, it’s never too early to begin gathering knowledge and tips while staying inspired to pursue your dreams of location independence.
Combine them with remote working software like Krisp, add a dash of adventure, and you’ll be ready to go.
