I don’t know about you, but I am always looking for more podcasts to listen to. I listen while I travel, work, and every other time in between. In my search for more podcasts I wondered if there were any made by and for my community, the community of Mississauga. We are always talking about the importance of supporting local businesses, but what about local creators and artists? I was quite surprised by how many amazing Mississauga-based podcasts I was able to find, and I knew that I just had to share this top 20 list!
