But why would you want to listen to a podcast? What’s the merit of this blossoming audio platform? In fact, there are many reasons. From educations programs to entertainment shows and more. Podcasts can enrich the lives of anybody who listens to them. And on top of that, the audio format makes consuming podcasts easier than in visual platforms like tv shows or movies.

Many people turn on the radio when driving to work or taking a trip. The same can be done for a podcast. As for pedestrians walking to their friends’ houses or other locations, you can put in your headphones and laugh along with your favorite podcast hosts.
