The advantage of listening to podcasts is that you can listen on the go! Now you can be entertained or learn a new lesson whenever you want, wherever you are. This hands-free, eyes-free form of entertainment will make you look forward to your morning commute and daily chores. Listening while you cook dinner, or wash the dishes, and it will make your workload seem much lighter.

In a world where we seem to be busier and busier trying to balance career and personal time, podcasts adds a form of leisurely multitasking to your schedule.

The best thing about podcasts is that they provide an entertaining option to visual media. Podcasts, much like videos, little energy and don’t need to read, however, they don’t cause the same visual strain or mental numbness as videos. In fact, studies show that the brain is more active while listening to podcasts than when watching television. This is because podcasts require listeners to use their imagination rather than spoonfeeding consumers with visual accompaniment. So for the sake of your eyes and to stimulate your imagination, download a podcast today!

If you’re one of the people who don’t like to read or simply don’t have time, there’s a type of podcast that depends on storytelling like audiobooks, but totally for free.
