What is a Podcast?

Podcasts are like on-demand radio shows that you can listen to anytime, anywhere. You can find podcasts about almost anything—cooking, politics, fashion, history, or just chatting and having a good time. While there are a lot of celebrities and famous people with their own shows, absolutely anyone can start a podcast. You don’t need a lot of equipment to start except for a microphone, computer, and a quiet place to talk. Maybe I need to start one for fashion over 50, LOL!

How Can You Listen to a Podcast?

To listen to a podcast, all you need is your smartphone, tablet, or computer. There are apps like Apple Podcasts, Spotify, iHeart, and Google Podcasts where you can browse and find podcasts that pique your interest. Once you find a podcast you like, hit subscribe, and new episodes will show up automatically.

A great pair of headphones is a must-have for me when I’m listening to a podcast! I prefer to use noise-canceling ones to block out any background noise, and my favorite AirPod Pros have the option to turn the noise-canceling feature on and off in case you need to listen for your name being called in a waiting room or something!

    I usually prefer audiobooks, but I think it is because I haven’t found a podcast I listen to regularly. Great ideas you shared — thank you!

  2. sue koren says:

    I wish I had time to listen to these!

  3. Thank you for the list of podcasts. I will be checking some out!

  4. I love wisdom with a side of humor! “Wiser Than Me” sounds perfect. Thank you for this post!

  5. Nice things to listen to!

  6. Susan Weston says:

    Appreciate the list. Nice variety, too!

  7. Dominique Sachse is one of my favorites to follow on podcast and on YouTube…she is awesome!

  8. I was so hoping The Bible Recap made your post. If you haven’t tried Tara-Leigh Cobble’s podcast, you should. But START FROM DAY 1 no matter when you begin. It’s a yearlong read through the Bible. I’m doing it for the 2nd year in a row. You read (or listen to) the daily Scripture, and then she recaps it and points you to findings about God from that day.

  9. I listen to podcasts. The Counterculture Mom and Eyesontheright are the main ones I listen to. A lot of what I listen to is on YouTube from faith, health and fashion topics. (Good Fight Ministries is what I have been binging on lately.) Fashion videos are the only ones I have to watch. The others I can listen to while doing something else like housework.

  10. Tania, are podcasts free or do you pay monthly? I have not really gotten in to them yet. My daughter loves them.
    Thank you,
    Blessings,

    1. Podcasts are free. And there are a ton to choose from.

  11. Tim Keller is deceased and his inspirational teachings are even more of a treasure now! Love his sermon series and his podcasts in general. An old one that has been around a long time is What You Didn’t Learn in History Class – fun, somtimes funny, and factual!

  12. I usually listen to audio books when I walk but want to try some of these podcasts

  13. Thanks for the recommendations! I love podcasts! I am going to start listening to the Wiser Than Me podcast today!

  14. Susan Sailor says:

    Thanks for sharing these podcasts! I work from home and I’m always searching for relevant podcasts to liven up my workday!

  15. Sheila Sanders says:

    Wow! I never knew there were so many podcasts. I’ll definitely try some of these.
