I know I am late to the party on this, but I just really started listening to podcasts. And I am addicted! There are so many out there, and they are usually the perfect length - not too long, not too short. I usually listen to a few a day now, while I am bopping around the house, cleaning or playing with Wyatt.
My brother has been trying forever to get me to listen to podcasts, and I am glad that I finally took his advice!
My listening list:
Lore: A slightly spooky podcast, it delves into true historical events, that have a darker side. Host and writer Aaron Mahnke does a fabulous job with his research.
Stuff Mom Never Told You: So I am completely in love with this podcast! I could listen all day but I don't want to binge listen and run out. Some of my favorite episodes: Anthropology of Pie, Knitting, The Gilmore Girls (of course), and Unicorn Legends. Not just for women, these are fun and informative.
You Must Remember This: A great podcast for the fan of the silver screen and old Hollywood. Shares tales of the forgotten stories of old Hollywood. My brother suggested starting with the Manson episodes and they were phenomenal.
Stuff You Missed in History Class: In the same family as Stuff your mom. These are fascinating little snippets of history.
I also started watching a few podcasts from Stefanie over at Wooly Cakes and Wooden Spoons. She is an amazing knitter and very soft spoken. Wyatt actually calms down when I play these - she just has one of those soothing voices. I know this is not the purpose of her posts, but I guess in our house serve a dual purpose - I learn while Wyatt gets sleepy.
If you haven't tried out podcasts but have been toying with the idea, I highly recommend these! Also, I am open to suggestions. I would love to hear what you are listening to!
