… I love podcasts. There are so many podcast episodes on my phone that I either need an extra two hours in the day, or to get up earlier for more listening time. Here’s hoping someone can arrange those extra two hours…
Pocketcast (podcast app of choice) is full of personal development, comedy and people chatting about things. Of course, I’m also listening to gain more knowledge about hosting and editing podcasts for Turbitt & Duck, and it’s great there are so many formats and styles out there for me to learn from. These are a few episodes that ticked the “enjoyed” and “learnt something” boxes recently.
Librarians with Lives
Librarians with Lives is a new UK library podcast by Jo Wood and her first episode with Helen Berry is a cracker. Helen’s library career has been Diverse with a capital D. If you’ve ever wondered about moving between libraries and specialisations, this is a great episode. Helen is also very honest about career choices that were wrong for her and why. Have a listen!
