Replied to #oext358 #oextend Pitch a Podcast Episode | The Daily Extend (extend-daily.ecampusontario.ca)

Have you listened to a recent podcast that made you jump up on excitement saying “everyone should listen to this”?

Even if not, recommend a compelling podcast episode that would be meaningful to other Ontario Extenders.

Since this #oextend is in the curator series, I’ll turn it on it’s ear to recommend my own faux cast. It’s a self-curated list of all the podcasts and audio that I’ve actually listened to and frequently comment on. Here’s the feed for it if you want to subscribe.

Many people recommend podcasts to me, but I suspect that the majority of the time, they’re just parroting back what’s popular or they’ve heard about recently. Listening to podcasts is often work and takes some effort in investing one’s time. As a result, just knowing what podcasts people have actually listened to is very valuable. If it wasn’t good, interesting, or entertaining, they’d have switched the channel. If they listened and actively chose to share it, it must be even better.

If anyone is interesting in building and sharing their own faux-cast, I’m happy to help them do something similar on their own website. 

Of course if you want the more “traditional” answer, there are lots of awesome podcasts about which I think, “Everyone should listen to this!” John Biewen’s Seeing White is one of my favorites.
