Dear College Students,

Just when we thought that podcasts were a thing of the past, here they are again. Thankfully, no one is complaining and they seem to be one of the biggest fads at the moment. Especially when people are on the go often. People are busy and appreciate a good podcast right at their fingertips. For some people, it is their only time to sustain peace and quiet. While others might listen to scripture or sermons through podcasts.

For whatever reason you may listen to podcasts, here are a few that are worth spending your long drive listening to.

1. The Freedom Initiative

This podcasts mission statement is: “Advocating For Hope Against All Odds.” The Freedom Initiative is an organization located in Washington D.C. that aims to highlight tens of thousands of prisoners in Egypt who are falsely accused. According to The Freedom Initiative, “Today at least seven American nationals are unjustly detained on politicized charges in Egypt.” The Freedom Initiative will be marching in D.C. to raise awareness about governance issues within Egypt early in the year.

Author of the book, “For the Love” Hatmaker, has been releasing podcasts that reveals how to practice kindness, grace, truthfulness, vision, and kindness to the community us women have around us. She shares in her “For the Love” podcast this beautiful truth:

“I think this podcast is for the woman who either has this deep, meaningful, and wonderful community around her and she’s celebrating it, or this podcast can be for the woman who is lonely looking for that community.”
