Over the past couple months, I’ve been getting so much into podcasts. I never thought I’d ever become a podcast person. Although I read lot of self-improvement, spiritual healing, sociology, psychology and career books, sometimes I prefer to listen to podcasts. It’s something different than books or watching TV and I love learning about new things in different ways. Inspirational podcasts give me another level of happiness and I consider it as a #SelfCare time, when I need to switch-off and motivate myself for new things.

We wanted to go back to a method that’s more focused on producing solid content. A podcast has you really working your imagination as you disconnect from the world around you. It’s a fun, modern medium and lets us properly explore a topic in depth.” says Monica Ainley and Camille Charrière on Vogue.fr interview. Download it here.
