Why you should invest in podcasts + My Pod Playlist
January 22, 2019
Podcasts are a sort of media that people don’t think of easily. It’s more like a radio show but in digital form available to listen to on the internet or download to your device. I started listening to podcasts from years back when I was learning Mandarin Chinese and didn’t think it would be something I’ll be greatly interested in now. Having listened to a number of podcasts over the years, I really think they are worth investing your time on.
-Podcasts are Informative
Podcasts are very informative and ranges from all topics of interest.The best way to unwind whilst being updated, inspired and getting in the know of what’s happening in your environment or niche is to listen to podcasts.
Regardless of what you’re interested in, you can always find a podcast that’ll inspire and motivate you. Girlboss Radio does that for me with interview,tips and experiences from different professionals.
-While away time
podcasts are best for the long drive home, to work or when you’re on the go and not wanting to listen to music. You’ll be surprised how time flies when you’ve spent the most of it listening to someone/people talk and learning a thing or two from what you’ve heard.
MY POD PLAYLIST
You’ve probably heard of the book, read it or kept up with the #girlboss tag on social media, but I bet you didn’t know that girl boss had a podcast series where they interview successful women from different industries. Well if you did, go girl!
Hearing stories of these people from the scratch has inspired me to keep my A game on.

PS: Podcasts are easier to access using an IOS device but if you don’t have one I recommend STICHER to listen and subscribe to different podcast shows. You can also sync and download your favorite shows for offline use.
