In Praise of.. Podcasts

I love to listen to podcasts, particularly when doing simple tasks. Podcasts allow me to learn new things and entertain me while I continue to get some things done. If I was getting my entertainment by TV, then I would have to sit still and be unproductive.

The key aspects of a job that can be improved by listening to a podcast are that it requires my hands and eyes but not significant concentration. Podcasts at work generally don't work because I generally need to focus on what I am doing and not the podcast.

Tasks I like to accomplish while listening to a podcast:

  • Cleaning
  • Mowing the lawn
  • Ironing
  • Walking
  • Motorway driving

So thank you to all the podcast hosts out there for allowing me to do the monotonous tasks in a more pleasant way.
