Podcasts are terrific. Many of us use them as a welcome point of focus and a deeply satisfying social experience. Bonus: People leave you blissfully alone while you listen the day away.
Podcasts allow you to mainline all the reliable, comforting voices you want as they deliver the new info you crave. You can listen to the same episode or segment of an episode over and over as many times as you like and no one will ask you why or to turn it down or when you’re going to listen to something else.
