In this digital era it has become increasingly easy to access information. You can Google just about anything and read up on it. There are times though that you just don’t have time to read.
As an avid reader myself, I love to dive my nose into a book to learn something new or get pulled away into a new adventure in Narnia. But, sometimes I just don’t have time to actually sit down and read.
This is where podcasts fill that gap in an amazing way! I live 30 minutes out of town, so that gives me 1 hour of driving anytime I want to go somewhere. Listening to a Podcast while you are driving fills that gap of not being able to read sometimes.
