    Hi everyone,

    A friend of mine recently recommended a podcast to me called 'Wake Up To Money' on BBC Radio Five Live which is available every weekday. It is recorded really really early in the morning and covers all the big commercial news stories, whilst only being about 40 mins long. I have been listening everyday for a couple of weeks now and it is really easy to follow and incredibly useful. I figured that it would be a great idea to hear if you guys have any podcast recommendations that might help with commercial awareness as well! If you have any to share I would be so grateful to hear of them in a post below :)

    Thanks everyone and I hope you are all having a lovely week so far!

    I listen to podcasts quite obsessively! In terms of the ones that could be of use, I routinely come back to:
    • The Economist's Editor's Picks/The Economist's The Intelligence
    • FT News Briefing (a nice daily summary of the top FT stories)

    Beyond Today is a great daily podcast from the BBC about a big news story with a lot of variety in the type of stories discussed! DLA Piper has an interesting TechLaw Podcast for those interested in legal tech. :)

    I listen to the 'Commercial Awareness' podcast on Spotify. The episodes are very short (5 to 10 mins) and essentially relay headlines and address the relevance to the business world/commercial law. I like how short it is because I don't always have time to listen to something that is longer than that.

    I also listen to Freshfields's podcasts.
