The Growing Popularity of Podcasts
Podcasts are becoming increasingly popular because you can listen to them anywhere – on your drive to work, your afternoon jog, or virtually anywhere you can plug in your earbuds. But podcasts aren’t new. They’ve actually have been around for more than a decade. They are a series of audio files that are produced to be shared online. The majority of podcasts follow a specific format – much like a television or radio show – with different seasons, episodes, and guests.
You can subscribe to the podcasts that you like so you can listen to them on a regular basis, and yes, they’re addictive! Or you can simply download specific “episodes” that interest you. Wondering where to begin your podcast journey? Here are five of our favorite podcasts to check out.
