Confession of a Podcast Junky – what I listen to regularly

featured-podcastMy name is Chi and I’m a media junky. I try to read a whole lot of blogs and listen to even more podcasts. I hate to waste time which is why I often listen to various podcasts on my journey to and from work and most likely whilst I’m at work. Side note, I find as long as what I’m doing doesn’t include putting sentences together such as design and development, i can concentrate both on the task and on the podcasts.
So here’s a list of all the podcasts I regularly listen to, in alphabetical order:

    1. Back to Work
    2. Boagworld Web Design Show
    3. Build My Online Store
    4. Business tips for startups by proven entrepreneurs (Mixergy)
    5. Entrepreneur Thought Leaders
    6. Everyday Einstein’s Quick and Dirty TIps…
    7. Fitness Skills by Gold Medal Bodies
    8. The Foolish Adventure Show
    9. Foundation
    10. Get Paid to Travel the World – The Tropical MBA
    11. Internet Business Mastery
    12. The Lifestyle Business Podcast
    13. Listen to Lucy (FT)
    14. Market Foolery
    15. Money Talk from
    16. The Random Show Podcast
    17. The Smart Passive Income Podcast
    18. Startups for the Rest of Us
    19. T3 Podcast
    20. Tech Weekly (The Guardian)
    21. Techzing Tech podcast
    22. This Week in Startups
    23. The Podcast

As you can see there’s a lot of focus on tech and startup/businesses – which is the secret to how i keep on finding new gems of the internet.
I kinda surprised myself when I finally finished the list, I swear I do listen to all of these podcasts, I do miss a few shows every now and then and I definitely don’t listen to all of them each and every week, I tend to listen to them in blocks, so it may be 3 shows of Tech Weekly back to back after neglecting it for a few weeks, just because it takes too much effort to dig my ipod out and change shows.
When it’s not 2 in the morning, I would add a bit more detail to why I listen to these podcasts
