You might have heard about Education Podcasts but what are podcasts?
Podcast is radio on Demand, that means I can listen to that interview or that conversation whenever I want, That’s why I love Podcasts so much. I have listened thousands of podcasts over the past few years about a great variety of topics, I usually do it when I am about to go to bed or during long trips. Podcasts are a thing now in the US, now it is possible to find a podcast about every popular topic.
Itunes is one of the most used tools to listen to podcasts, if you have an Iphone, you are probably making good money and you probably have an stock apps for podcasts but if you don’t like that or if you are an android user like me, you can pick a podcast player from the appstore. If you feel undecided about what app to install, start with Player FM or Pocketcast

- You don’t have to pay a fee to listen to podcasts, podcasters make money in some other ways, they don’t charge for delivering content to us and you and I like free stuff!
- If you are a non-native speakers, podcasts can teach you lost of things and everything gets better if you spend hundreds and hundreds of hours listening to professional native speakers.
- You can listen to podcast anywhere, if you can’t sleep, listen to a podcast, if you are stuck in traffic, listen to a podcast, if you are walking, listen to a podcast.
