You guys/gals. I'm obsessed with podcasts. Yes, I love music but I hate radio commercials. My Dad listened to a TON of talk radio when I was a kid - and he would reference a topic that he heard once in a while in dinner table conversations. Now, um, I do the exact same thing! Except podcasts are that talk radio!
We can all now be more picky with what we want to listen to on any given day. Industry professionals chat with people or about topics that may relate to your life or business. THEN they will often mention another podcast to check out, and so the list-building begins.
I highly encourage listening to podcasts (most are via iTunes or Soundcloud or Stitcher). So much inspiration in your ear.
How to listen to a podcast:
1 - Open the little purple icon on your iphone or ipad (Sorry non-Apple users! This is what I know right now.)
2 - Click on 'Search' at the bottom.
3 - Type in a podcast name that you've already heard of and scroll through the episode titles.
You can also search for whatever topic you are interested in OR even check out the Top Charts listing (button at bottom of app). Literally everything is an option nowadays: parenting, business ideas, legal stuff, health stuff, inspirational stuff, etc.
4 - Click on one episode title to begin listening.
It's that easy! The times are always listed. Have a little drive ahead of you? Find one that would fit that timeframe.
5 - If you like what you hear, Click 'Subscribe'. The new episodes will then come up in your feed in the 'Unplayed' bottom button of the app.
Here are my favorites podcasts lately:
- Being Boss
- Balanced Bites
- Happier with Gretchen Rubin
- Side Hustle School
(Follow Step 3 above and search for any of my favorites list.)
What are your favorite podcasts to listen to? I'd love to know!
