I’ve recently decided to start listening to Podcasts after realising I need something to distract myself without having to concentrate. Plus, they’re free to listen to!
I know I’m late to the party, but with a lack of time to read a book these days, I wanted to try and find something that would entertain me (and maybe even educate me). I really enjoy listening to people converse, so I decided on Podcasts instead of an audio book (although listening to Stephen Fry read Harry Potter is a real treat if you get the chance).
But where do I start? Do I go with current affairs or comedy? Crime or Sci-Fi? In the end, I decided on a subject close to my heart – LGBTQ – and found Homo Sapiens with Singer & Actor Will Young and Filmmaker Chris Sweeney. Branded as the “LGBTQ version of Woman’s Hour”, I was excited to give this a go.
