I didn't catch on to listening to podcast so quickly. I saw announcement of first podcasts, interviews, movie reviews...but I'd already seen the movie or read the book, and I've never been one to read the opinion page in the newspaper either. Then in January I had to take a business trip to France and was loading some media for the hours travelling -- "Hey - there are over 80 podcasts there - I should load up a few of those!" So in they went, and they made interesting material for the trip...so I loaded a few more for the trip back... Then I went back through the list again - playing new podcasts routinely driving to work (well, it's only 5 min, but they sure beat jazz hour on NPR!) Sometime listening while cooking lunch... And I carry my phone while prepping some new garden space - might as well throw on a podcast! Pretty soon I've heard 2 or 3 podcasts some days!!
Well, pretty soon that endless supply of "over 100!" podcasts starts ending... I sample a few 'alternative' sources, but they don't quite fit my needs. And even though Paul publishes at a very impressive pace, my daily listening pace has outstripped his supply. I realized I had to break away from the path of consuming so many fossilized podcasts... curb my listening habits back to not exceed production. And keep looking for a sustainable rate of consumption... here in the post-peak world, still waiting for the NPR jazz apocalypse...
