I have never been a user of these information filled recordings, but now living abroad I had to find a way to fill my morning and afternoon commutes to school with something other than silence and the busy city around me. So I have downloaded the Podcast app on my Iphone and started listening daily to 4 podcasts that keep in the loop of what is going on back in the US and in touch with the life I used to know. So I am first listening NPR: Hourly News Summery, once that finishes, I listen to the BBC Global News. I also listen to the NFL: Around the League podcast and American’s Test Kitchen Radio Podcast. All of these give me some sense of home and also informative too.
