A list of my favorite podcasts that work as a distraction from the woes, generally thanks to great storytelling, fascinating topics, astonishing research and -- sometimes -- smooth-jazz, tickle-your-ear voices. C'mon, get happy! Let these podcasts chase all your cares away.

It's easy to bring a bag of chips, but I like to make my potluck offering a gift to the host, a little something to acknowledge the work she or he has done.

I've included some of my favorite jar offerings in this blog. Enjoy!
