Let’s Talk: Podcasts

Standard

As I sit here in my office, I am listening to a podcast.

What’s a podcast, one might ask?

Dictionary.com defines a podcast as: a digital audio or video file or recording, usually part of a themed series, that can be downloaded from a website to a media player or computer.

So if you didn’t know, that’s what a podcast is.img_2214

Podcasts cover all different kinds of genre’s from tech to food, relationships to music, and design to stories. I personally enjoy podcasts about tech, design, music, and politics. I honestly listen to podcasts more than music most days. I just get an enjoyment out of learning things in such an interesting way.

I began listening to podcasts over a year ago and it all started with “The Vergecast”, a podcast hosted by The Verge. This podcast is mainly about tech with some politics mixed in. The content of it echoes that of its website, and the hosts are very interesting and informative. This is with most podcasts.

5 of my favorite podcasts now a days are Pod Save America, a politics podcasts hosted by former Obama aids, Crtl-Walt-Delete and The Vergecast, two podcast in association with theverge.com, both hosted by Nilay Patel (Editor in Chief of The Verge) and others like Walt Mossberg (Founder of Recode Media and creator of the Code Conference), Accidental Tech Podcast, another tech podcast hosted by Web Designers and App Developers, and finally 99% Invisible, a Podcast about the design of everyday things and how we never notice them.

So I encourage you to check out podcasts and find something that interest you, because there are thousand of different kinds. and if there isn’t one that suits you, there is always the ability to make a podcast and publish it on iTunes. But that’s a whole other article.

Until the next time,
