Florida is known for it’s New York-like hustle and bustle, where everyone is continually on the go and always into something. Some joke that this is due to all of the “transplants” who have found their way into our amazing, sun-shiny state. Because of this, podcasts and pre-recorded radio shows do very well amongst the South Florida community. We can listen to them as we get ready for work — or while driving to one of our glorious beaches!

With pride in our community comes knowledge of our community. In promoting local culture and empowering the local community, we have selected five of South Florida’s most in-demand podcasts for your listening pleasure. Covering everything from history to nations, music to local politics, check them out and be sure let us know what you think!
