The thing with binging TV is that you have to be using two senses at once to be engaged: sight and hearing. That really cuts down on the possibilities of getting other things done simultaneously. But, podcasts on the other hand require only one sense—hearing—so the productivity possibilities are exponentially greater.
Podcast + mopping the kitchen? No problem. Podcast + walking the dog? Easy. Podcast + julienning veggies? Careful… but definitely possible.
That, plus the power of spoken word has the ability to inform, entertain, and inspire you unlike any other media.
Now that we’ve presented a great case for podcasts, consider subscribing to one made right here in Columbus.
