#TryPod

Have you discovered podcasts yet? If not, March is the perfect time to #TryPod! Podcasts are digital audio files available online for downloading to your computer, device, or phone. New installments can be received automatically by subscribing through a “podcatcher” app such as iTunes, Stitcher, or Soundcloud. There are all kinds of podcasts out there to choose from: informational, educational, narrative, and just plain fun! They’re perfect for tuning into the content that interests you, when you’re interested in listening to it.

With so many podcasts out there, it’s hard to know where to begin. This is where featured collections and keyword searches come in handy. Books are kind of my thing, so I got started by browsing the iTunes Book Lovers featured collection. BookLoversThese are the ones I sampled and subscribed to … which podcasts do you love? Leave me a comment and recommend one that I should #TryPod!
