It is official: I am totally and completely smitten with the world of podcasts. Fiction, non-fiction, fantasy, drama, or comedy, you name it and I’ll (probably) listen to it. I just can’t seem to get enough of them, and it couldn’t have happened at a better time in my life. Between having a toddler around who parrots any ‘bad words’ on TV like a Furby, never having the time to sit still long enough to watch an entire episode or movie, and basically getting bombarded with demands for My Little Pony any time the TV is switched on, TV watching has become a rarity for me.
Enter podcasts to save the day (and my sanity)! Your TV is being held hostage by a 2-year-old and you need some ‘me time? No new books to read but need a form of mental escape? Ready to jump out the window if you hear the finger family song one more darn time? No problem! Just pop on some headphones, queue up a few episodes of your favorite podcasts and go about your routine of cooking, cleaning, and scratching play-doh out of the carpet without going crazy! Yay!
Currently, I’m binge-listening to the Lore Podcast, and let me tell you, it is definitely addictive. Between Lore, The Black Tapes, Tanis and Limetown, I do believe my sanity has been saved.
At least till I run out of podcasts to listen to that is…
Do you like podcasts? Got any favorites? How do you preserve your sanity?
