Today’s Flava In Ya Ear Friday is a bit different than the previous posts. Although I will recommend something, first I’d like to address something that’s been on my mind: podcasts. In case you don’t know what that is just think of it as you would a YouTube video only no viewing is required. Instead, you would be listening.
Let’s say you work in an office or have a desk. I’ll assume you have a break. Let’s say on your break you have an option to
- Read a book
- Watch a video
- Listen to audio
On a perfect break you’d get to do all three but how often does that happen? Right?
So which one do you think is the likeliest answer to be picked? In the past, I’d have picked A. but recently I’ve found that audio works best for me so I’d pick C.
Almost half of Americans listen to online radio each year. In 2013, 1 billion podcast subscriptions were purchased. This has tripled in past years. I’d like to think in some regards we’ve managed to return to the days of radio. I’d like to imagine the days when soap operas were broadcast on the radio and people would gather around to listen. Whether we’re in the car, on the bus, riding bikes, during a commute, on lunch or dinner break podcasts or some form of audio is utilized.
Now for today, I’d like you all to check out Sara Polton’s Answering Machine Podcast
I have only listened to a couple of episodes so far but I am definitely excited to hear more. The show is comedic and very entertaining. If you’d like to know more here’s a description from courtesy of the show’s Facebook page: An old timey radio drama brought into the modern era telling the story of vegetarian Lila Rose’s story post college through her voice mails.
How fitting that the description mentions old timey radio drama.
Feel free to like the Facebook page, Follow Sara on Twitter, check out her website and check her out on Twitch. She also has a book on Amazon Kindle called Ulysses. I hope you enjoy all the goodies created by Sara. I’d say she’s one to watch, very creative and entertaining.
