I know I’m totally late to the game, but I’ve recently discovered Podcasts! I know, I know, I’m dumb. Podcasts are cool and everyone’s been listening to them for ages. Well, apparently not me. I’m just barely catching on to this trend.
I’ve been using Castbox, but my husband starting using Google Podcast, and really likes the interface so I thought I’d try it out. So far, I am loving the clean look and how easy it is to access everything. Maybe it was just my phone, but Castbox seemed a little delayed in responding to me when I’d hit play or search or something.
So what does everyone listen to on a podcast?
I started listening to Reply All by Gimlet after my husband discovered it. At first, I was skeptical. It can’t be that good, can it? But then he started telling me the premise of one of the episodes (#102 Long Distance). The premise was “Who are these people calling from India saying your computer has a virus? What do they really want?” It captured my interest almost from the beginning. This particular topic spans 2 episodes. Other favorites cover topics about a random photo on the internet, and a popular conspiracy theory.
One of the gals at worked recommended a few true crime podcasts, so I’ve also started listening to Someone Knows Something. I’m halfway through the first season and it is gripping! A child goes missing in the 1970s in Canada, and the podcast covers one reporter’s journey to uncover what may have happened to the young boy. I can’t stop listening! I wish I didn’t have to do anything and could just sit and listen to this story unfold. I’m only halfway through, but they’ve called out cadaver dogs to check the area where the boy went missing. I’m learning so much about what would be left if the body was in the woods for this long (just the soles of his shoes!) and how cadaver dogs work, and what they can sense and smell. It’s really amazing!
So, I’d love to hear what you’re listening to. I’m always up for something new to try! Let me know in the comments!
