A better way to listen to podcasts


OPINION: I normally listen to podcasts on my commute, but recently I’ve tried something new I’ve tried to listen to podcasts while not doing anything else – to take some time out and make the listening a quality experience, rather than multi-tasking my way through traffic or making dinner or cleaning the bedrooms It’s a simple change, but one that I’ve found makes a big difference. I take in the textures of the audio mix, I remember more about what the presenter is saying and I think more deeply about the topic READ MORE: * Holiday podcasts for all the family * Podcasts on prison life and wrongful convictions * The future of podcast is paid premium I always get people telling me what podcast they are listening to and then they get out their phone and then scroll through a huge list of podcasts to show me all their finds When I first started listening to podcasts, quality podcasts were hard to find and now that we as listeners are spoilt for choice, it seems a great time to concentrate your listening I’m a big fan of unsubscribing to podcasts that don’t excite me each episode and I’ve culled my list right back to focus on some new podcasts that I really enjoy The podcast charts are a good way to seek out what’s new, or use the search function on your podcast app to look for podcasts on a subject matter you really enjoy I’m currently enjoying Gangster Capitalism, a deep dive into the key players in the college admissions scandal in the US and Man in the Window by the LA Times that chronicles the 50-year-hunt for the Golden State killer Joe DeAngelo   A simple quality, not quantity, change will make you think differently about the podcasts you are listening to  Sit back, get comfy and give it a try.
