Podcasts are, for those unfamiliar with the term, digital audio episodes, usually consisting of a speech-based broadcast. Essentially these are shows that would have been limited to talk radio stations 20 to 30 years ago, but which can now be packaged by anyone with the capacity to explain the topic of their choice.
Podcasts have steadily grown in popularity over the last few years. There are now thousands of podcasts recorded and released every week, and they cover every subject you can think of. This makes the breadth of choice open to eager podcast listeners immense.
This Week’s Question…
Which Podcasts Do You Listen To?
With so many podcasts to choose from we’d like to know which you choose to listen to and why these are the ones you choose over all those that are out there? Although MakeUseOf is a site dedicated to technology we don’t just want to know which technology podcasts you listen to. Instead, you can recommend podcasts which cover any subject you care to mention.
As someone who works from home I listen to podcasts all day (when I’m not in the mood for listening to music through Spotify), so I am myself likely to seek out all those mentioned in the comments section below. And hopefully other MakeUseOf readers will also find new and interesting content from the responses to this week’s column.
As a way of starting the ball rolling I heartily recommend the Technophilia podcast, a technology pod from three of my fellow MakeUseOf writers. Each week Justin Pot, James Bruce, and Dave LeClair talk tech, covering the big news stories, interesting apps, and topics suggested by listeners. It’s a weekly dose of aural pleasure. And now it’s your turn…
All comments will be digested to form conclusions in a follow-up post next week where we will detail what You Told Us. One reader will be chosen for the coveted ‘Comment Of The Week’, having their name put up in lights for all to marvel over. What more motivation than that do you need to respond?
‘We Ask You‘ is a weekly column dedicated to finding out the opinions of MakeUseOf readers. The questions asked are usually open-ended and likely to start a conversation. Some are opinion-based, while others see you sharing tips and advice, or advocating tools and apps to fellow MakeUseOf Readers. This column is nothing without you, as MakeUseOf is nothing without you.
