Today I thought I’d share a list of favorite podcasts. This prompted me to think; what are the most common characteristics of podcasts I enjoy?
Multiple hosts: Podcasts with a conversational flow and banter.
Humor: They aren’t all “comedy” podcasts, but funny moments are appreciated.
Timely: I have always enjoyed keeping up on current events.
Stories: I do enjoy good story telling.
And now, the list:
- Heavyweight (only on Spotify now, )
- No Stupid Questions
- Dear Hank and John
- Planet Money
- FiveThirtyEight Politics
I listen to a LOT of podcasts. Sometimes I think about creating a podcast about education that includes the above features; limitations of time/audience are probably the biggest barrier. What podcasts do you listen to? Why do you love them?
–Thanks to twowritingteachers.org and the slice of life challenge for prompting me to hone my writing skills, dust off this blog, and share my writing. Day 22! It’s been a pleasure to read what others are writing as well. —
