Podcasts

Lately, I've come to realize that I can not work in silence. It's weird because I've never had this problem when I was little. So, when ever there are huge moments of silence, I turn on a podcast and just leave it on in the background. Podcasts, just those living under a rock, are basically audio clips of people talking, much like the radio. A lot better than radio actually because there are so many of them now that you can find one on just about ANYTHING.

My favorite podcast is the GFW Radio.Although they are gone now, it's still a very funny podcast about guys who wrote for a PC gaming magazine. These guys will forever be my favorite podcasters. Here is an excerpt from the podcast.
Tell me what your favorite podcast is and I'll surely check them out!

  6. I have moments where I need to work in silence and then others where silence is the loudest thing there is and I just need some music to drown it out. A good podcast is hard to come by.

  7. I'll check it out. I find if I listen to any pod cast for too long I start to get annoyed with the broadcaster. too much of anyone persons point of view is irritating
