The Six Fix: No-Nonsense Filipino Podcasts To Jolt You Into Action!

When you’re an adult in your mid-20s or older, you’re probably still adjusting to being at home all the time. You're so used to commuting to work and back—all while tuning out to your favorite music. The last one, you might be doing more so now bummed and confined at home with the lockdown imposed.

Listening to your fave radio station or playlist of choice is all well and good—but ever tried podcasts? Filipino-made and produced podcasts, in particular!

While vlogs, TikTok, and anything visual are what's hot, you might just be surprised at how the slightly more laid-back digital medium can inspire you. Below is a list of pretty substantial recos that might help bring back that much-needed motivation!
