Listening to Podcasts has taken over listening to music for me. I love and find more value in listening to comedians having conversations. I love WTF with Marc Maron, The Nerdist Podcast, YMIW with Pete Holmes, The Monday Morning Podcast with Bill Burr, The Church of what's Happening Now with Bobby Diaz, The Joe Rogan Experience, The Duncan Trussell Family Hour. Amongst many many others. Theses podcasts have allowed me to get to know all of theses people, and all of the people they have interviewed or had on their podcasts.
Most of us have iPhones, it is the small purple app with with looks like a stick figure's torso and head with two circles radiating from the top. You can download AS MANY as you want, and it's all FREE. I have learned so much from listening to podcasts. Whether it be advice on comedy and show business, or insight's on life and success and many other un explainable things I've gained from listening to podcasts.
Something was confirmed for me in listening to Joe Rogan's podcast recently. Being able to 'hang out' with cool people through your ears. Especially if you live in a place where you are surrounded by people you don't feel push you to be better. You can escape and listen to somebody you love and who makes you laugh. I had this thought of being able to escape your present reality, in some ways not talking to other people is unhealthy. But when I'm stuck listening to people in my life talking nonsense, I am calmed in the reassurance of being able to listen to a podcast.
I always listen to podcasts when I work out or run. I don't need any psyche up music, I can just listen to the conversations of interesting and funny people. I listen to A LOT of podcasts, I would love to make one. And the opposite, I have never read anyone else's blog, and I don't get why anyone reads mine. But I appreciate anyone who has made it this far. :)
It is the best alternative to music. I often re listen to certain ones to recapture the feeling I got from listening to it the first time, or to remember some great advice or insight. TRY IT OUT. IT'S FREE!
