Listening to Podcasts

One year ago I discovered podcasts and have since then not listened to anything else on my iPod touch. Podcasting is a very efficient way of absorbing information. I have a 30 minute commute on the bike each way and walk the dog for another 30. I cannot read or watch anything in those 90 minutes, but I can listen. Podcasts for me are a great way of “radio”. The big difference with real radio though is that you can stop the podcast for 8 hours of work and listen further where you left off. Of course I am talking about real information here, no music. Listening to music is a waste of time for me. It is podcasts for me and when I am out of podcasts I will try a new one. The next best thing is audiobooks. I will elaborate on the how and which in other posts.
