And if you are listening from an app on your phone
you can literally be anywhere. Podcast producers
launch their podcast at regularly scheduled times so
their listeners know when to expect it. But once an
episode is launched you can listen to it at the time

The hardest part about listening to podcasts is narrowing down what you will listen to, with so many
options. One way to start is to ask others what they
enjoy. Or, as you're reading magazine articles that you
like, see who the author is and discover if they have
a podcast. You may have to kiss a lot of frogs per se

realize a podcast is not for you. These early stages can
be frustrating. But once you narrow it down be sure
to hit " subscribe " or follow the ones you enjoy so you
don't have to search for them each time there's a new
episode. You may even find that some of your favorite radio programs, like the Moth Story Hour or Wait,
Wait, Don't Tell Me, both popular on NPR, are also
now available as podcasts. That is the beauty, you are
in control. You're no longer tethered to having to be
at a certain spot at a certain time to listen at someone else's convenience. (You can even hit pause if you
need to...you know...and then come back and resume
right where you left off.)
