What are your favourite podcasts?
Do you listen to podcasts? Um, why not? It can’t be because you don’t have the time, because the great thing about podcasts is that you can listen while cooking,
cleaning and any other mind-numbingly boring piece of housework. It can make getting the housework done less of a chore and more of a hobby – I know, I’m stretching it.
Here is how you get started
According to those statisticians, about 20% of us have listened to a podcast in the last month. You can listen to just about anything. It super simple to set up as well.
You download a podcast app to your phone.
If you’re an iPhone user, then have a rummage around apple podcasts. Android users have a bigger choice. I use Castbox and Spotify on my Samsung. I subscribe to my favourites and then new episodes get added to the list without me needing to do anything. Woh! Who knew?
What do I listen to?
I listen to a bunch of psychology and business-related podcasts. These are mainly educational, but I also listen to some entertaining ones like Hero’s Journey, Rough
Trade music and Desert Island Discs. I tend to listen at home and while commuting on the bus. I love learning, so having easy access to podcasts is brilliant. How
about you? What do you listen to?
