Lately, I have been a big fan of podcasts while driving to and from work. My one job has an hour commute each way, and halfway there I lose reception of the New York radio stations I usually listen to because I drive so far down to South Jersey. A few months ago, I finally opened the Podcast app on my iPhone and started to explore them. There comes a time in everyone’s life when listening to the radio is just not enough. I keep switching between radio stations and it is the same songs over and over. I wanted to listen to something more while I drive to work or spend time in my car.
Even when I am cleaning up around the house or when I have been doing landscaping outside, I press play on my iPhone and listen to a podcast. The best part about podcasts is that they can fit in your back pocket and you can take them everywhere. Today on the blog, I am sharing a few of my must listen to podcasts that I make time for everyday. There is so much news circulating in the world, a lot of important things goes unknown because there is so much fluff out there.
MY FAVORITE PODCASTS
POD SAVE AMERICA // Four former aides to President Obama chat with journalists, politicians, comedians and activists about important current events in American and abroad.
TED TALKS DAILY // Ted Talks on the go! One of my favorite parts about college, was being able to listen to Ted Talks in class. In under 10 minutes, you can hear stories and through provoking ideas on every subject. It is a great thing to listen to on your way to work to make your brain start to work.
THE DAILY // I love to read The New York Times, but never have the time to actually read the New York Times. I do follow them on Twitter, but found it a lot easier to listen to The Daily from The New York Times. With just a car ride to work, I can find out the important news for the day.
LOVETT OR LEAVE IT // Jon Lovett, former speechwriter for President Obama, hosts a roundup of the week’s top news with comedians, actors, journalists and other funny people. There are games, rants and many laughs!
