Although I have tried listening to several podcasts over the years, I have to say that it has not been a satisfying experience. I have always thought of podcasts as being a way in which people who felt they had the skills to make it in radio, or music, or another entertainment venue, but lacked the connections or support, could do it themselves, gain an audience, and make a career for themselves, or perhaps at least have a good time doing it. I suppose it is that but, as someone who really wanted to find something worth listening to, I can't say that I am at all impressed. Since I work online, I often stream movies or television series but, because I am working, I can't actually watch much of the shows. I follow them by glancing at the screen from time to time, but mostly by following the audio. My wife uses the radio for that purpose but pretty much all they have the radio is music, news, and political talk, and I don't want any of that, at least not on a regular basis. I sometimes play old radio series, from before television, and that's fine. But I like paranormal stuff, of the sort that Coast to Coast used to be before Art Bell left the show, and there are dozens of paranormal podcasts available through iTunes or TuneIn, and I have tried pretty much all of them. But I don't get it. At least 80% of the content of every podcast that I have tried to listen to has been advertising. When they aren't airing paid advertising, they are advertising their other podcasts, 80% of which are advertising other podcasts, and so on, and rarely do they get to anything worth listening to.
