Need something to listen to while commuting back and forth from work?
Need something to listen to while working out?
Don't have time to read all those posts from blogs you put in your RSS reader on that Saturday you told yourself you were gonna get on top of things?
Did you make a new year's resolution a couple of week's ago to be a better researcher? And to actually find the time to research?
Then perhaps it's time to start listening...listening to news, research tips, and history that will help you accomplish your goals.
I've been listening to podcasts and internet radio shows in many genres for a while now (especially business, marketing, etc.). They're great because I can do other stuff while listening and learning.
What is a podcast? A podcast is a series of (usually) audio or video "shows" delivered on the Internet that can be subscribed to via various means; they can be downloaded and listened to offline via a mobile device; or they can be listened to on the web on either your desktop, laptop, or mobile device.
What is Internet Radio? Internet radio is an audio show transmitted on the Internet and these tend to be episodic as well; a popular service that provides this service is BlogTalkRadio.

I usually listen to my podcasts on my iPad (using Apple Podcasts) whilst having breakfast or when i get into bed, but sometimes also listen through Podchaser. I listen to loads of podcasts though - not all of which are genealogy ones. I'd add a podcast to your list though - The Family Histories Podcast (https://familyhistoriespodcast.com) which is for and about people doing family history - with a guest, a relative's life story, and a brick wall... and each guest leaves the episode via a trip in a time machine.
