Any favorite podcasts?

I’m just getting into podcasts. I’m using the Pocket Casts app.

I started looking for something to listen to while I’m falling asleep.

I found one called Nothing Much Happens. It’s true. Nothing much happens. The times I tried it, I was so bored, I couldn’t sleep.

I also tried one called meditative story. This one was pretty good, I think.

I’m just getting started in listening to podcasts. I mostly listen to youtube or audiobooks.

Do you have any favorite podcasts?

[Wasn’t sure where to put this. Is a podcast music or books? It’s more like music because it’s auditory but it’s more like an audiobook than music.]

I do not own a smartphone and have no wish to become phone dependant. My small and very convenient dumb flip-phone has all I need from my on-the-go music files + radio to a camera should I ever need one. Had it connected to the internet, then I would have not bought it.

Are you on the right thread? :017:

Yes. Most podcasts are loaded into smartphones and I aint got one :wink:

I like to listen to audiobooks - mostly true stories of things which have occurred in the past. The narration has to be pleasant though, and lively… I used to listen to a knitting podcast (Lime & Violet) from years ago, which was interesting and funny, but I don’t really know many podcasts recently.

I can’t listen to anything while falling asleep though, it has to be during the day when I’m in the garden or outside.

Not really. Podcasts can be listened to on any device, including laptops and computers or even MP3s if you have one of those.

My little flip-phone has an MP3 player via its memory card, but how would the podcast load without the internet; not that a podcast would interest me🤷‍♂️

You’d load it from your computer onto your phone the same way you’re loading music files now.

You’ll have to convert the podcast to MP3 format first. Here are the first instructions I found. There might be easier ways.

Aren’t most podcasts downloaded as MP3s anyway? I know the ABC ones are.

Spotify has its on DRM protected system I know
