I’ve been listening to Podcasts for years now. Over the past year there has been an explosion in popularity as the advertising strategy and market has expanded. Where there is money there is a way.
Podcasts are an exceptional way to gather knowledge and make better use of time. I listen when driving, exercising, household chores and doing house projects. The real genius is that you get to hear from people that don’t normally comment on the world in a way that reaches the general public.
My list of podcasts has grown over the years and I have dropped a few here and there. Sometimes people ask me what I listen to, so I made a list on the page here. I have categorized each and will keep it up to date as I add new shows. As of today, I subscribe to 62 and listen to about 85% of them each week. Yes that is a lot of time. But we all spend a lot of time doing stuff that could be enhanced by listening to podcasts.
I can’t stress enough how important I think it is to stay connected with the world. Podcasts are a great – and free – way to do that. Give them a shot, you’d be surprised how much smarter you get listening to people talk.
