I hate podcasts! But even I found these interesting...

Updated: Sep 9

Did you know that nearly 68 million people listen to podcasts on a monthly basis? Well, until this month you could count me out of that statistic. I still prefer to hold my book in my hands and READ...but I decided to see what all the fuss was about and this is what I learned.

Why do people listen to podcasts?

According to Wenbin Fang at Listen Notes, people listen for ten reasons.

  • To get over a creative block

  • To get inspired

  • To spend time more effectively

  • To gain an education

  • To stay informed about current events

  • To improve wellbeing

  • To enhance relationships

  • To move forward in a career

  • To get motivated

  • To have fun

I spent some time this month listening to a few new voices. I made a list of education/leadership related podcasts for you. These podcasts are all currently producing new episodes, so check them out and see what you can learn next!
