Think of podcasts as an auditory equivalent of an RSS news reader. They provide an escape from the typical media sphere, offering a varied mix of topics and perspectives. Unlike the algorithm-driven curation of social media, in the podcast universe, the choice rests with you. You create your unique library based on your interests.

Creating a personalized podcast library is an enriching journey, and a step towards diversifying your information sources. The podcasts I subscribe to cover a wide array of subjects – from technology and politics to science, history, Asian studies, and entertainment. Each provides unique insights and stories, sparking my curiosity and broadening my perspective.
