In Pakistan, podcasts are the hottest new thing. Is there anything we don’t like about it? It’s possible to listen to episodes while you’re doing other things at work or home. Most of what can be found locally is also quite good; there are many interesting, amusing, and enlightening discussions taking place about music, fashion, and other aspects of culture that almost everyone can relate with.
Here are top podcast picks for you that you need to check asap.
