The joy of podcasts

do you listen to podcastsDo you listen to podcasts? According to the Pew Research Center in 2016*, 21% of Americans aged over 12 had listened to a podcast in the previous month, up from 12% in 2013. It's still a minority, but it's growing fast. 

March is #trypod month, with big publishers and podcasters encouraging their listeners to encourage their friends to 'try a podcast'. 

I'm encouraging you to listen to The Extraordinary Business Book Club if you're not already a listener, of course, but here are some of my other recommendations (links are to iTunes, but other podcast subscription services are available): 

The Creative Penn - Joanna Penn covers both fiction and non-fiction and as one of the best-respected indie authors in the business gets great guests and asks excellent questions. 

The TED Radio Hour - eclectic but never less than fascinating: I love the mix of human stories and cutting-edge concepts. 

Book Shambles - Robin Ince and Josie Long with very funny, very intelligent book chat and top-drawer guests

Happier - Gretchen Rubin on making life a little better every day

I hope you enjoy these, and I'd LOVE to hear your recommendations for podcasts - booky or otherwise - that you recommend I try out in #trypod month. 

If you're already an avid listener - and particularly if you're an avid listener to The Extraordinary Business Book Club, of course! - why not make a special effort this month to introduce someone else to the joy of podcasts?
