Are you a boomer looking to get into the world of podcasts? If so, you’re not alone! Podcasts are becoming increasingly popular among all age groups, and boomers are no exception. With so many podcasts out there, it can be overwhelming to know where to start.
As the Baby Boomer generation continues to age, we are becoming increasingly tech-savvy and are embracing new technologies. One of the most popular new technologies is podcasting, which is quickly becoming a powerful tool for Boomers and beyond.
Podcasts are audio recordings that can be downloaded and listened to on a variety of devices, including smartphones, tablets, and computers. They are typically hosted by one or more people and can cover a wide range of topics, from news and politics to health and wellness.
For Boomers and beyond, podcasts offer a unique opportunity to stay informed and engaged with the world around us. We can listen to podcasts on our own schedule, and can easily pause and restart if we need to. Podcasts also provide a great way to stay connected with friends and family, as many podcasts feature interviews with interesting people from all walks of life. There are even game show podcasts, including Jeopardy.
Podcasts also offer a great way to stay up-to-date on the latest trends and topics. Many podcasts feature interviews with experts in various fields, giving listeners the chance to learn from the best. Podcasts can also be a great source of entertainment, with many podcasts featuring comedy, music, and other forms of entertainment.
Finally, podcasts can be a great way to stay connected with the world around you. Many podcasts feature interviews with people from different cultures and backgrounds, giving listeners the chance to learn about different perspectives and experiences.
There are podcasts on virtually any topic you can think of, so take some time to explore and find one that is of interest to you. You can search for podcasts on popular streaming services like Apple Podcasts, Spotify, and Stitcher, or you can browse through podcast directories like Buzzsprout, Listen Notes and Podchaser.
Once you’ve found a podcast you’d like to listen to, you’ll need to download it. Most podcasts are free to download, but some may require a subscription. If you’re using a streaming service, you can usually subscribe to the podcast and have new episodes automatically downloaded to your device.
Most podcasts are now available in both audio and video formats, so you can choose whichever one you prefer. The Delaware Blogger Podcast and Out & About with Antionette podcasts are audio only, but I am not the host of The One Marketing Thing Podcast which is both audio and visual.
So if you’re listening on a computer, you can use a media player like iTunes or YouTube. If you’re listening on a mobile device, you can use a podcast app like Pocket Casts or Overcast, Podbean and Castbox.
You’ll want to keep up with new episodes, most podcast apps allow you to subscribe to a podcast and receive notifications when new episodes are released. You can also follow the podcast on social media to stay up to date on new episodes and other news.
Overall, podcasts are a powerful tool for Boomers and beyond. They offer a great way to stay informed, engaged, and connected with the world around them. Whether you’re looking for entertainment, education, or just a way to stay connected, podcasts are a great way to do it.
