I listen to a lot of podcasts. Actually, scratch that, I subscribe to a lot of podcasts. I used to listen to a lot of podcasts but over the past couple years my habits have changed in ways that make listening to hours of audio a day harder. I increasingly find myself looking at a… Continue reading Stale Playlists
I began listening to podcasts about eight years ago. I stumbled across Dan Carlin’s Hardcore History, and its long-form content enthralled me. I believe it was “Blueprint for Armaggedon” that I began listening to as the centennial of the First World War was the following year. Carlin’s ability to tell a story in a way… Continue reading Making That First Step.
I typically listen to around 8 hours of podcasts a week. I share a small space with my family (a teenager and a ten year old) and we seem to come together more if there is quiet in our home. I would likely listen to more podcasts if I was not aware that when my… Continue reading Karen’s Listening
I listen to… a lot of podcasts. I have probably about thirty-five active subscriptions and I try to listen to them all every week (I am also such a nerd about listening to them IN THE ORDER THEY DOWNLOAD and trying hard not to skip ahead… but I sometimes do).

One example of this I really enjoy is The Worst Idea Of All Time. You know, the podcast where… Continue reading #walrusyes
Just kidding, or maybe not. I’m thrilled to be here but there is so much great, free content floating around I am often stymied as to which avenue to pursue. But I have landed here, thrilled to see others here, and ready to dive more into the world of podcasts. The shows I tend to… Continue reading Why do I sign up for things!
I have listened to a few podcasts, mostly on CBC and my guilty pleasure is mysteries, especially when I have a long drive ahead of me. I am hoping to learn more about the production of podcasts and possibly use them for a librarian research podcast and maybe a personal one discussing topics that interest… Continue reading New to podcasts, who dis?
I have a fairly large and eclectic group of podcasts that I listen to regularly. Several of them appear in the Amplify Podcast Network blog. From an academic perspective, I enjoy Science vs, Think Like an Economist, EconTalk, Inquiring Minds, HBR Idea Cast, and LSE Public Lectures & Events. I also follow several NPR, Wondery,… Continue reading Listening Journal
Who would want to listen to me? I have been helping people create podcasts and other audio recordings for many years, but I have never started my own podcast. Why would I? There are millions of terrific podcasts, so many that I can’t keep up with the ones I have found and like. Why would… Continue reading Who would want to listen to me?
