    • Trust me, there is reading going on as well, but I'm getting in a LOT of walking, so now that I've really figured out podcasts and have the headphones working right, I'm getting in a lot of listening.  Added Savage Love Podcast as well, although I haven't listened to any yet to be sure.  And I listened to three Lore podcast episodes, but I'm not including those because I'm not going to add them.  I really prefer the multi-person conversational style. Rabbit Hole wasn't quite like that, but there were two interviewers/reporters involved and a lot of back and forth discussion.
