Lang Podcasts

When podcasts first came out, I wasn’t really interested. I wasn’t sure if I had the attention span to listen to a podcast, and I really preferred music anyway. But something got me interested to try one out, and I’ve been hooked ever since!

In general, I like to multitask while I have podcasts on in the background. It depends for my language learning podcasts- I tend to get more out of them if I’m doing a quiet stationery activity and able to actively listen to them. Some of these podcasts are older, some are more recent, and some have ended or not updated in a while. Feel free to check them out!
