In today’s blogpost, I want to introduce you to the top five podcasts that I listen to. I left the ones about business and freelancing to Mike, since we listen to the same ones more or less, and focused on a broader variety of themes and topics. Podcasts can cover just about anything and that is why I enjoy them and why I think everyone should start listening to them. Focusing on music and lifestyle, here are my top 5 podcasts.
Mike tells a secret, Adela talks about her competition and together they share their best freelance stories, and reveal what makes their client approach unique and different from others.
The easiest way to describe a podcast is to compare it to a radio show. Both is an audio-based content that you can listen to, except radio is broadcasted live and a podcast is available on the internet anytime.
Once a radio show gets its own online archive, then it essentially becomes a podcast – an episodic audio content available for streaming or to be downloaded from the internet. Once a podcast episode is released from that moment on you can access it onward. In that way it’s similar to YouTube—except you have to know how to find a podcast.
As podcasts are a fairly new medium, playing them is far from universal and not always easy. In order to answer the question how to play them I’ll briefly describe the concept both from listener’s and publisher’s perspectives.
In their first episode, Adela and Mike discuss how they started their creative business, what they hope their future will bring them and Mike comes up with 5 questions that will tell you if what you are doing is the right fit for you.
