The Cosmopolitan SA team has been working from home and social distancing, since the outbreak of the coronavirus in South Africa. We are working hard to do our bit to help to #FlattenTheCurve and prevent the spread of the virus. While being at home, it also means that we have had plenty of time to catch up on the things we usually don’t have time for – like listening to podcasts.

The COSMO team shared just what podcasts they are currently listening to, in case you need some recs to keep you occupied during 21 days of lockdown:
