I already listen to podcasts I find it helpful to go to sleep listening to something. First it was cassettes, then CDs. Then I could download podcasts. Now with live streaming and the BBC iplayer the choice is endless!
I’ve looked at the selection of library related podcats and haven’t really been engaged with them. I’ll check out Circulating ideas periodically to see what else appears, but I think I’ll use this format for leisure.
As to creating my own – NO! I hate my own voice for a start. Also I see it as something that will take quite a bit of time to get good at & I think my limited time will be better spent getting used to something I will use at work such as. screencasts.
I haven’t listened to Serial yet, but having heard it recommended in several places I will have to get around to it.
For those of you into crime I recommend Great Detectives of Old Time Radio (widely available I believe, I listen on the Apple podcast App). It’s a HUGE collectiom of radio crime & detective dramas from the US, restored with added commentary. Very enjoyable and with a seemingly endless supply of episodes.
And if you haven’t tried the BBC radio iplayer give it a go. You can catchup, listen live and download.
