Spring is here, and so is the time for being outside, getting exercise, biking, or walking in fresh air, a perfect time to pop your earbuds in and turn on an engaging podcast.
Podcasts are well on their way to replacing regular radio, where pretty much anyone can create a podcast and deliver topic-specific content. Podcasts allow people to access audio content where they want, when they want. The number of subscribers that podcasts receive and their sponsorships determine their ability to stay on the air. So far, the number of podcasts cropping up in the cannabis space is growing faster than even the biggest cannabis enthusiast can keep up with.
In a sea of green amongst your cannabis podcast selections, it’s hard to choose one or two to dedicate your time and interest to. Here are 6 that are getting some good buzz in the cannabis and podcast communities we suggest you check out this Spring:
