We are at a point where being uninformed is more of a matter of choice than anything else.
Teenagers or young adults have access to unlimited information from uncountable sources. So why not explore it?
Podcasts are the perfect way to receive information for us, inpatient multi-tasking millennials. They can be listen anywhere and anytime, they are almost always accessible from the touch of our fingers, they don’t take up any space in our smartphones and we can do other things while listening to them. Bored in your commute to campus? Or want to listen to something interesting while doing the dishes?
There are podcasts about any topic and in so my different formats. Here are some good ones:
1. Rookie Mag
Finally giving into the demands of its readers, Rookie Magazine created their own podcast. It follows the same style of smart irreverent topics of the magazine and will guarantee that will make you reflective and open to new perspectives. The first episode was released this week and it features singer Lorde. The podcast is available on iTunes and Spotify.
2. The New Yorker: Politics and More
Getting politically informed is a must after the results of the most recent election. The best way to do it is through The New Yorker political podcast. The hour-long shows discuss politics, policies and current events. The moderator Dorothy Wickenden has guests with different opinions providing insights into multiple issues.
3. Directors Guild of America: Director´s Cut
Ever wondered what would happen if your favorite actor interviewed your favorite director? The Directors Guild of America provided us with that blessing. Weekly podcasts with famous actors, producers, writers and director discussing the current film industry with real depth interviews is good for relaxing and unwinding while getting interesting insights from knowledgeable people.
