Podcasts and I have a love/hate relationship. I listen to them infrequently, and can only listen in short bursts. My favorite podcast probably isn’t really what one would normally describe as a podcast, but NPR Now (The NPR new summary) is my favorite way of getting the news. It’s a five minute summary that NPR uploads every hour about what’s just happened in the news. I normally listen to it while eating my breakfast in the morning.
I will plug my favorite Podcast App as well. It’s called Pocket Casts and is has a great user interface. It isn’t free, but it doesn’t have any ads either, which I love. Unfortunately, I think it’s only available on the Google Play store, but that’s really it’s only downside.
As for starting my own podcast, I have definitely thought about it. There definitely need to be more library-focused podcasts out there! However, of course time is an issue. maybe one day…
