Not yet convinced? Here’s a list of why you should start listening to podcasts right now:
Podcasts are changing the way we consume information
Until very recently, using the internet necessarily meant staring at a computer or laptop screen. Podcasts represent a refreshing alternative – you use your ears instead of your eyes. And there’s an element of human interaction: podcasts put a voice on words. You have genuine human voices telling you a story, rather than reading words from on a screen.
Podcasts redeem your time
Commuting time in America reached 26 minutes on average this year. Podcasts allow you to be informed during a time that would be wasted. You can also listen to podcasts while performing other activities, like exercising, cooking, walking the dog or doing the chores – all you need is your phone.
Podcasts are powerful learning tools
The simple and low-cost nature of audio production has attracted specialists in various fields to create their own podcasts. Whether it is a subject you are interested in or something you are not familiar with, there’s already a podcast about it, waiting for you.
Podcasts are a gateway to new ideas
When it comes to podcasts, there’s only one known frustrating experience: when you reach the final episode of a season or your favorite podcast calls it a day. No need to worry, though: there are hundreds of new podcasts every day. Even major media groups have been investing in the format. What’s more: Otto Radio has personalized playlists according to your interests, and carefully curated collections. You will never run out of podcasts.
