My first car was a bright red Ford Laser. Like any teenage boy, getting a decent stereo system installed was high on my priority list. Surround Sound, Sub Woofer & a Removable Face were all very important! With my CD wallet packed with my favourites, that car took me everywhere, great tunes along the way.
Fast forward 20 years… Marriage, 2 kids, a small business, iPhones, Blue Tooth and a marginally better car. Life has changed. I used to be able to pick the Top 10 of the JJJ Hottest 100 every year. Those days are long gone… somewhere along the line I got old!
My sounds of choice for my daily drive these days? Podcasts.
For those of you unfamiliar with this concept, Podcasts are like radio shows (without the music) recorded and downloaded onto your Smartphone. With topics related to sports, comedy, business, personal development and more, there are podcast shows out there for almost everyone.
Whether you are iPhone or Android, both come with Podcast apps so you can search and play your favourites.
Let’s take a look at a few of ours, click on the link of the show to find out how to listen:
