Firstly, Why Listen to Podcasts?
I started to listening to podcasts a little over a year ago when my audiobook addiction was getting a little too expensive. I quickly fell in love.
I remember listening to audiobooks via a tape recorder in the car on road trips with my parents when I was a kid Bill Bryson and Bad Jelly the Witch first come to mind. I loved them then but the art of listening to stories lost me somewhere in my teens.
I love podcasts because I am a fairly slow reader. I can download them and listen to them on the plane when I am too tired to read. I often listen to them when I am struggling to sleep.
For anyone who is not familiar with podcast listening here's why you should start:
- They're FREE
- There is something for everyone from fiction to fact
- They are short (usually 20-70 minutes)
- You can listen to them on basically any device these days
- You can download them for when you are offline
I have a list of podcasts I love to listen to for all sorts of moods. Here is my top 5 list for when I am in need of some motivation and personal development vibes.
