One of the best innovations in the last decade for those of us who travel a lot (especially by car) or who have long commutes is the podcast. A form of verbal recording, you can download them and listen to them at your leisure. No longer are you forced to listen to whatever is on the radio or to pack quantities of books on CD (or for those of us old enough, books on tape). While there are many who are saying podcasts are “overdone” and are on the way out, for those of us who are late-adapters to technology, this is a great innovation.
The main benefit of podcasts is that you can choose the topics you want to listen to, so you can load up on cooking, woodworking, knitting – or Financial Independence! My personal preferences are for history, woodworking (odd, I know) and personal finance/FIRE.
The hardest part is to find ones that you enjoy, and that provide you with the information and entertainment that you want. For that reason, I’ve listed on my blogroll to the right, some of the FIRE podcasts that I like to listen to. I will add to it as I find other ones that I enjoy, and feel that you folks would enjoy as well.
After that, the only problem is finding the time to listen to them all!
What podcasts do you like to listen to?
