And then I discovered podcasts. Its like you get to choose your own radio program schedule!
According to Wikipedia:
A podcast is a digital medium consisting of an episodic series of audio, video, PDF, or ePub files subscribed to and downloaded through web syndication or streamed online to a computer or mobile device. The word is a neologism and portmanteau derived from "broadcast" and "pod" from the success of the iPod, as audio podcasts are often listened to on portable media players.How's this for technology? I can load podcasts from my favourite blogs onto my phone and play them on my car stereo via bluetooth! Its like listening to blogs! This would also be good to listen to while cleaning, cooking, gardening etc. If you don't have the bluetooth/car stereo thingy, you can get a gadget that lets you tune your ipod or phone into the car radio. You can also just listen to them on your computer. To download the MP3 files, right click on the link that says "listen here" or "download" and select "save link".
Here's a list of my current favourite sources of podcasts, I'd love for you to share what you listen to as well! Mine mostly involve sustainable farming, permaculture, real food and gardening. I like the ones where bloggers interview interesting people, including other bloggers. If its a couple of bloggers that you follow, its like listening to your friends having a chat.

I used to wonder what podcasts were all about and our internet connection was so terrible, there was no way I was going to listen to them. But now our internet is better, I have discovered that they are a way to enjoy blogs while you do something else, because I don't always have time to sit down and read. Now I'm hoping that you still have time to read my blog because I hate listening to my voice on a recording so I won't be making any podcasts in the near future!
What do you listen to while you work or drive? Any podcasts that I need to know about?
