When it comes to learning, everyone has a different style.
Some people have to read information to absorb it. Others need to hear it. Some people need a combination of visual and auditory instruction in order to fully understand something.
For those of us who can't go back to school full-time to learn more about our industries (as fun as that sounds), podcasts are a nice way to learn on the go. Whether you're listening during your commute to work or at the gym, they're a nice way to squeeze in some extra insights on the go.
So we've rounded up a list of customer service we recommend you listen to for inspiration and learning from some of the experts in your field. Keep scrolling to learn more about each podcast and listen to episode previews on Spotify.
