I do realize that many of my readers have no clue what podcasts are, which is just not okay. I am a podcast addict, and I think everyone should love podcasts as well.
What are they?
Podcast are like radio shows, but they’re prerecorded. They may be recorded live (caller-based shows) and edited later, or they may be completely scripted and prepared, or something in between. The nice thing about podcasts is that they’re archived and downloadable, so you can subscribe to a channel on your podcast app (iTunes, or I use Podcast Addict on Android) and download an episode when you want to listen absolutely FREE.
So, what podcast are awesome? I have a list 🙂
This American Life: Stories from all over the country on all kinds of topics
The Moth: Live storytelling sessions shared on a theme by theme basis
Beautiful/Anonymous: Beautiful stories from anonymous people with Chris Gethard
The Skeptic’s Guide to the Universe: Science, superheroes, dumbest stuff, etc.
Serial: One story told week by week for the whole season
Kobo Writing Life: Tons of writing topics and interviews
The Author Hangout: Mainly focused toward indie authors with marketing tips
