What kind of media typically costs nothing, is portable, hands-free and delivers itself straight to your computer, smartphone or handheld device?
Podcasts are digital radio posts that are delivered over the Internet. Though not as popular as other forms of media, podcasts – which span practically every subject imaginable – are growing in popularity. College students should take advantage of this expanding form of media to boost both their academic and practical knowledge. Tune in to these five podcasts today.
1. How To Do Everything
How To Do Everything is a podcast updated roughly once per week by NPR’s Mike Danforth and Ian Chillag. Danforth and Chillag invite listeners to ask them questions via email or telephone, which they then answer on their podcast. According to the How To Do Everything website, listeners can ask the two hosts any question, no matter how simple or how unusual.
In each episode, the animated duo answer questions with the help of outside “experts,” from biologists, to beekeepers, to baseball players. With each show, you are bound to learn a new fact or two – and to have a few laughs in the process.
