I won’t do this quite as often as Media of the Moment, but I think it’s interesting to check in every once in a while with my podcast lineup and habits, since they do change over time for various reasons.
What hasn’t changed since my last dispatch: I listen to too many podcasts, and/but I’m still quick to skip episodes as desired.
What has changed: I’ve transitioned to Spotify (free version), and I listen at 1.5x speed.
I’m not super happy about the first one, but once four of my regular listens went Spotify-exclusive I decided to bite the bullet for the sake of a unified podcast listening experience, however frustrating it can be. There’s still one holdout stranded in Apple Podcasts because Spotify doesn’t allow for adding podcasts by custom URL, but otherwise that’s where I live.
Anyway, here’s the current lineup:
- Armchair Expert
- The Big Picture
- Dare to Lead with Brene Brown
- Judge John Hodgman
- The Office Deep Dive
- Office Ladies
- The Rewatchables
- 10 Questions with Kyle Brandt
- Unlocking Us with Brene Brown
