There was no sense in keeping my full cable package while the house is still in chaos so I cut back drastically and you know what? I haven’t missed it at all and the additional savings is great! And when all of the chaos is over, I may seriously cut the cord – for good. When I want something to watch, Ted Talks and Netflix are always on standby.
While you may like to “watch”, I’ve always preferred to “listen” – music, radio talk shows, audio books, podcasts…something is always playing as background noise. And now I’ve discovered some new (for me) amazing podcasts.
I’d always heard about “NPR” but it was only recently that I got a taste of Ted Radio Hour while driving around doing errands. I was taken in by the “Growing Up” podcast that was playing in the car so since I missed parts of it, I pulled it up offline the next day and listened to it entirety.
That one podcast allowed me to stumbled onto several others like:
- Invisibilia (the following blurb is taken from their website) – “Invisibilia is about the invisible forces that control human behavior – ideas, beliefs, assumptions and emotions…Invisibilia interweaves narrative storytelling with scientific research that will ultimately make you see your own life differently.”
- The Moth Radio Hour (the following blurb is taken from their website) – “The Moth Radio Hour features our most beloved tales and the stories behind the stories. The series debuted in 2009 and is now airing on more than 400 stations nationwide.”
- Snap Judgment – Storytelling, interviews, more storytelling…
I was definitely missing out on some great podcasts but that’s the beauty of the internet and discovering great content. Podcasts are great to pass the time on a commute, while stuck in traffic or even while going through emails.
If you’re like me and prefer to listen, you should check these out if you haven’t already.
Do you prefer to “watch” or “listen”? Tell me all about it!
