An Accidental Listener – How Podcasts Became A Daily Part Of My Life

My daily morning and evening commutes rely heavily on carrying my iPod and listening to music. I find it hard to start or end my day without listening to my favorite albums or tracks.

This doesn’t mean I haven’t melted at the sight of these adorable creatures when I first laid eyes on them. Read on to find out which characters have captured my heart and will always be very special to me.
