When it comes to podcasts, I’m definitely behind the ball. Like, “back in 2009 with my EnV flip phone with no access to podcasts” behind. To be honest, it wasn’t until this year (yes, 2019!) that I listened to my first podcast and became addicted to tuning in to different subscriptions while in the car, on walks, at home, you name it.
Why the sudden interest in podcasts?
Truthfully, I started listening to podcasts to gain more insight and knowledge on topics I didn’t know.
I know some people listen to podcasts on sports or mysteries (I have yet to listen to Serial!!) but I sought out podcasts that taught me something – be it adulting and life skills I didn’t know yet to business leadership and marketing industry advice from thought leaders. I wanted my podcast time to be motivational and inspiration, and not just time lost. I wanted to listen to a podcast and have the feeling that I could tackle the world like these influencers were.
