The trend to listen to podcasts instead of music when relaxing is not only increasing in the younger generation but also amongst silver surfers who may be discovering them for the first time. Although audio books have been around for some time podcasts are a more recent thing and usually consist of a series of talks that can be downloaded or streamed. The host of the podcast engages in a discussion about a particular topic or current event. Discussion and content within a podcast can range from carefully scripted to completely improvised. The subject ranges for podcasts are immense and can be comedic or serious. Many famous celebrities are choosing this media to share their views and entertain fans.
Podcasts are playing a helpful role in offering advice to those people suffering from an illness or those having experienced a trauma in their lives such as losing a loved one or going through a divorce. A simple search online can locate the podcasts, many of which are free to use. It may be necessary to download a podcast app or player on your device if you have not already done so in the past. So, if podcasts are new to you why not give it a go, you will be, like many others, hooked.
