Do you listen to podcasts? A lot of people don't even know what they are, but they've been around for over ten years. The best way I can describe them are: homemade radio show subscriptions that are automatically delivered to your computer, iphone or any digital device. Once they became popular, major broadcasters threw their hats into the ring and started creating their own podcasts too.
I've been listening to them for years and I believe they provide the best, most relevant news and information on any subject. They are made by people who have personal passions and extensive experience and best of all -- they are free.
I subscribe to about 100 podcasts and I learn more from them than I do from google searches. These programs are made by real people who have a wealth of experience. They are also a good way to tell people about own business or skill if you can get an interview to appear on a show. Or perhaps you can even start your own podcast. Today I just found a new show on how to start a foodtruck business. I've also listened to odd shows like firetruck collectors (no joke) and Australian knitters. You name the topic, it exists. Most shows are between five to sixty minutes, so they are perfect to listen to during down times such as when you take a walk, ride the subway or stand in line at the grocery store.
There are over one billion podcasts in the itunes database. If you don't like these new ones listed below, check out the others on design. Here's a link to just the first page of thousands on design.
