There are so many great podcasts available out there that a listener can utilize for learning and enjoyment. Here at PodcastTakeAways, we digest countless hours of podcasts a week to bring you our top picks and takeaways.
Since my job requires me to provide IT services in the oil fields of West Texas, I usually spend most of my time driving around. I believe Automobile University was coined by Zig Ziglar. The more I drove, the more I began to realize that I have a perfect opportunity to utilize this time for learning. In 2010, I remember initially listening to the podcast “How Stuff Works.” That’s when my podcast journey started. Every day, my thirst for other types of podcasts continued to grow.
When Ebay came out, I started contemplating about doing business online. I remember going to iTunes and made some searches for “Internet Business.” I did find a couple of life-changing podcasts that opened my eyes to countless of possibilities. The first podcast I listened to was Internet Business Mastery, followed by Lifestyle Business Podcast.
These podcasts were making so much impact in my life; I knew I had to share them! I began looking for opportunities on how to do that, until I started a blog called PodcastTakeAways. At first, it was just a personal blog where I placed the lessons I have learned from the episodes of various podcasts. The blog is linked to my Twitter account and it automatically tweets every time there’s a new entry. Little did I know, my friends were already checking the site and discussing the podcasts on Twitter thread.
I can’t believe it! What started as a personal leisure to kill time was making an impact in others’ lives too. From then on, I make it a point that I regularly listen to podcasts and write down takeaways. But since I don’t have all the time, I found a group of people who share the same passion as mine and are willing to write for PodcastTakeAways.
Now, we already have a bit of structure and come up with Podcast of the Week where we post our top pick for the whole round of week of podcasts. We are continually developing our process wherein we become more consistent and efficient in providing you information that will help you in many different ways.
