Let’s Talk about Podcasts!
Have you had a chance to check out my post on my favorite writer’s apps from A to Z? What do you think- do you use many or most of these apps or products? If you do, please tell me your favorites!

Do you listen to podcasts- about 31 million people do!
The word podcast as either a noun or verb first appeared on Dictionary.com in 2004. Podcasts are audio files that can be downloaded from the internet. These digital talk shows allowed hosts to sidestep the FCC and talk directly to listeners. Haven’t you always wanted to me a DJ on the radio?
iTunes, with its podcast app, is the most popular aggregator- which means it’s a website or program that collects related items of content and displays them or links to them. You now have a handy way of keeping track of your favorite podcasts.
Many people like to listen and learn as they exercise or during their daily drives and commutes. I have found that I can’t multi-task. I need to relax on my front porch and actively focus…otherwise I fade and drift away if I am doing something else while I listen.
I do enjoy the close connection with the speaker as I listen to podcasts. It’s exciting to be entertained while I learn. And you can find podcasts about any topic or interest.
