Talent: Our uplifting podcast suggestions to keep you going

In a time of great uncertainty and stress, there are only a few things that can act as a form of escapism. At The Influence Room, we understand that self-isolation can be quite lonely and so we believe that podcasts can provide this form of escapism when you most need it, from fantasy dramas to humorous marital chatter. We have collated our favourite 10 podcasts right now, to act as the perfect solitude from isolation.
