I’m late to the party when it comes to promoting podcasts for the month of March but I’m going to do it anyway. I mean, if I just heard about it maybe you haven’t heard about it at all.
Anyway. This is what I’m talking about:
During the month of March, the hosts of hundreds of shows including Stuff You Should Know, Planet Money, Missing Richard Simmons, and Crimetown, will encourage listeners to introduce a friend, relative or coworker to a new podcast, and, show them how to listen if they don’t know how. Listeners will be asked to share stories of why they listen and their favorite podcasts using the hashtag #trypod.
I’m a big fan of podcasts and my current favorites are:
Finally, S-Town goes live today with 7 episodes and it sounds like it could be quite good.
I predominantly listen to podcasts while driving to and from work although I do occasionally listen while doing my make up and while knitting or spinning. I think podcasts are a great way to pass the time, to learn something new, to have interesting things to talk about at cocktail parties, and to just use as a tool for cultural and personal awareness.
Do you listen to podcasts? Tell me your favorites!
