We’re in the dog days of summer right now, which provides really only two podcast options: spend 45 minutes frantically discussing Facebook losing $123 billion in value, or invest that energy back into ourselves. Clear our heads. Live our best lives (#blessed).

In service of your summer downtime, the CanCon podcast team has composed one heck of a reading list. It’s got business tips, science-fiction, reflections on design, trashy page-turners, and some German philosophy. Even Patrick recommended something, and it wasn’t a Nintendo Switch game. Perfect for a summer spent under a shady hammock or in an air-conditioned den.

If your summer plans involve, ya know, actually going places and doing things, CanCon also has you covered, with a portfolio of apps perfect for vacation and travel.

Enjoy our recommendations? Let us know with a tweet (#CanCon), or better yet, leave a comment (and a review) on iTunes or in your Podcast app. Why not leave a recommendation of your own while you’re at it?
