2019 has already started with too many inputs, technology moves so fast and having a focus on Apple even more so – keeping up is tough so I’ve kind of declared podcast bankruptcy. I follow a lot of blogs (these days more independent writers) and I’m enjoying actually reading them rather than being constantly plugged into a podcast.
I’m not naming any names but some podcast networks also only invite on the same guests, not a lot of diversity in the Apple podcasting world for me to enjoy. There’s only so much attention I can give some people – especially when I’m trying to stay focussed and calm in 2019.
So I’ve paired my podcast listening down to about 5 shows now, the ones that also have a YouTube channel I’ll watch them rather than listen. I’m hoping this will bring some calm into my life and reduce the amount of headspace I’m giving Apple content. I actually find that I enjoy listening/watching to folks talking about comic books and Star Wars a lot more these days, maybe it’s time I started writing more about these subjects…
Here’s to listening to more music, reading more independent writers and getting off the always on news cycle.
