Lately, I’ve been accumulating podcasts. Podcasts on gardening and writing. In other words, things I find interesting and useful.
Trouble is, I haven’t be actually listening to them.
In part, it’s because my truck doesn’t have Bluetooth so I can listen to them through the speakers.
But that’s just an excuse. I could listen at work. I don’t get reception for the stations I like, so this would be prime time to hear the podcasts.
And still…. no.
I love music. I bring my ipad to work to hear my music and I even have a little speaker to broadcast through. Maybe I’m having trouble making hte shift because I hate talk radio. Maybe I’m not willing to sacrifice my music. Maybe, it’s just me:D
So for those who listen to podcasts or audiobooks, how did you make the transition?
I haven’t made the transition. Living in a rural area, our downloading capacity is very limited. Once our 8 yr. old grandson came, and within an hour had used our entire month’s allotment! So, I don’t download U-Tubes, etc. But, I’m old-school…still prefer books to kindles, and only tolerate the computer because I must. 😦
Thanks Carolee. It’s nice to know it’s not just me who’s old school. I feel bad because I’m interested but I love music more.
Audio books are great for long drives. A friend is blind and has a ton of them and when I used to drive truck I would borrow. It was a great way to pass the time. Some are great just because who does the narration. One of the best I can remember was done by David Ogden Stiers, one of the Tom Clancy books. It was like a stage performance complete with background music. He put a lot into it and made it even more enjoyable. Some that I have listened to, while it was a good book, the narrator sounded like they were bored.
With podcasts ether you like them or you don’t. Just like with livestreaming, you often find the podcast a total dud. I get all excited over podcast on a subject that I like and find out that the guy is a total wacko.
Yeah, that’s what I’m afraid of. Listening to a podcast of some nut and yelling at the iPad.
