Oh, the wild world of podcasts. There's a lot of great content out there, but when it comes to fitness podcasts, there are a lot of series that emphasize pain over pleasure, with a "no excuses" mentality that can do a lot more harm than good. Finding body-positive workout podcasts can be difficult, but they're well worth searching for.
