Podcasts are awesome for learning about pretty much anything. Here's a list of some of our current faves for those passionate about PeopleOps and Leadership.

If you're in PeopleOps you know your job is way cooler than paperwork and office supplies. It's about helping the people who make your company awesome! You get to shape the culture and actually impact people's lives at work. Pretty cool, right?
