As much as we're intrigued by true crime, listening to a podcast doesn't have to mean streaming the gruesome details of a notorious murder directly into your ears. Plugging in your earbuds and focusing on a podcast can actually be a pretty meditative practice, and it can even be a spiritual experience if you choose the right podcast.
Of course, there's a huge range of faith- and spirituality-themed podcasts to choose from. There are ones for meditation and self-help, and ones which explicitly discuss the teachings of a mainstream religion. It can be daunting to know where to start, especially if you're relatively new to exploring that side of yourself.
Ahead, we've rounded up some of the best spiritual podcasts available for download now. Read on to find a show that just might enlighten you — or at least make your commute little more peaceful.
