I’ve been experimenting with podcasts for a few months now, but in light of recent events, it’s become part of my weekly routine. It should be part of yours as well.
If you’re not familiar with podcasts, no sweat. They’re simple to use and a great way to learn new things.
A podcast is just a radio show you can download and listen to anytime. They’re totally free. They can be any length, feature any number of people and cover any topic you can possibly think of. You can listen at home, in the car, while jogging or, if you’re like me, when riding your bike.
If you haven’t listened to a podcast yet, give it a try, then subscribe. You’ll be glad you did!
