Get Informed - Listen Now
Here at The Connection Corner, we think (know) that it is so important to be informed.
It’s 2019 and we live in a time where we need to be aware of what’s going on in the world, now more than ever. Today we’re sharing three of our favourite resources for keeping up to date with current affairs. They all happen to be podcasts, but we know it’s appropriate because who has time to read the newspaper every morning?
We recommend listening to at least one of these each day, but ideally listening to all three is best. Each of these podcasts releases one episode per day, so you know they are all super relevant, with topics and information that is current.
“This is what the news should sound like. The biggest stories of our time, told by the best journalists in the world. Hosted by Michael Barbaro. Twenty minutes a day, five days a week, ready by 6 a.m.”
