I hate podcasts! But even I found these interesting...
Updated: Nov 19, 2019
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!
