Continued education for any job is so important. I love to teach and continue my education. One of the best new and easy ways to stay connected, learn, laugh, and enjoy what you love to do is plugging into your favorite podcast. Every industry boasts a few, so why not use a podcast to keep growing in what you do and who you are? 
Wanting to learn more about what it’s like to be a barber? Want some ideas on hair care and hairstyling before you come into the shop to see me? Then why not start with a Podcast or two? Technology is a wonderful tool to use to continue your education and keep life interesting. I love learning more about my industry. I love to teach others and expand their horizons too. One of the many great things about podcasts is that there are so many different ones to choose from. You have so many different people with so many unique backgrounds sharing their stories, experiences, and expertise that you are bound to find the right one for you.
These specific examples that I have chosen to talk about today are just a few examples of the best podcasts out there for barbers and those in the industry. They highlight the life of a barbershop, the things you hear inside a barbershop, trends in haircuts, how the industry is changing, and how to continue building up your industry. But there are still so many other podcasts out there waiting for you. If you don’t particularly care for these examples, that’s okay! There are others out there waiting for you to find that will be exactly what you’re looking for. These podcasts are all available to play on multiple platforms and different phones, so that shouldn’t be an issue for you either!
