Who We Are Listening To
Podcasts are a great way to learn when you are busy. We have found several that may be interesting and entertaining to our Iron Butterflies.
Adulthood Made Easy
Yes, that’s its name. It’s from Panoply and part of the family of podcasts from the magazine Real Simple. The 22-year old host says “she’s clueless,” so she’s interviewing people to find answers to becoming an adult. It sounds like she’s targeting millennials but I enjoy learning things I forgot I needed to know.
