Podcasts often split opinions, a bit like Marmite. You either love them, or you hate them, or maybe you’re one of the people somewhere in the middle, but they’re few and far between.
Personally, I’m a big advocate of podcasts. I like the fact that you’re able to download the content straight on to your device, and not worry about having to have an internet connection to stream it when you decide you want to listen to it.
Furthermore, there are so many different types of podcasts to facilitate the needs of so many people, that there will always be something to suit you. No matter how mainstream or niche it is, someone will have made a podcast about your area of interest.
The podcasts I tend to listen to are sports-based, such as the 606 podcast or the Tuffer’s and Vaughan Cricket Show on BBC Radio 5Live, and The Grade Cricketer on Whooshkaa.com.
However, I must confess that I wasn’t overly impressed or interested in the ESPN podcast titled, How One Man’s Bad Tactics Ruined Decades of English Soccer. Perhaps it was the idea of American’s talking about football as ‘soccer’, or maybe it was just how the show felt overly-produced, and the fact that it was based around very little discussion or interaction.
Either way, I guess that’s what’s so great about Podcasts. It’s your choice, and there’s something out there for everyone.
