I love podcasts. Maybe it's the accountant in me. They're just so... efficient.

Podcasts are great for "dead" time. Driving to work. Working out. They're an excellent tool for professional development. After all, who wants to read more after staring at a computer screen all day? Listen to accounting industry podcasts on the way home from work and save time for watching Game of Thrones at home.

Here's a list the best accounting podcasts I've come across.
