Podcasts have come a long way from being a short lived fad that many had predicted it to be. It has grown and matured into a veritable source of knowledge and information that if utilized and used well can help you go a long way both professionally and personally. A simple switch of 25% of your radio/media/television time to listening to podcasts will increase your knowledge by leaps and bounds.
Since no one knows the exact number of podcasts out there or being released every day, different studies quote different figures. A simple Google search pegs the number of new podcasts/updates released at 10k per month. These 10k can belong to any of the four categories of podcasts – Queue (2 to 4 minutes long), Commute (18 to 25 minutes long), Conditioner (30 to 45 minutes long) and Companion ( 60 to 90 minutes long). There is a category of people actively subscribing to and vouching for each category.
