Who To Listen to, and Why
For those who don’t know, NPR, in combination with a handful of podcast hosts and publishers, has recently launched #trypod in order to help expand podcast audiences and bring awareness to less-known podcasts. The idea is to share a podcast that you enjoy with a friend, family member, co-worker, etc., tell them why you listen to it, and perhaps most importantly how to listen. For podcasts with a lengthy backlog of episodes, jumping in can be daunting and it’s not always possible to know whether you can start in the middle, and if so where to start. On the podcast host’s end, this means not only reaching out to family and friends, but telling listeners about what we’re listening to and why.
