In this month's interview with personal trainer, Susan Delmonico of SJD Health and Fitness, she wanted to let people know some of the podcasts she listens to and why. In one of them, she decided to buy a book that was recommended on positive thinking. Another comment she made related to the podcast community's willingness to promote each other. Susan detailed how she has discovered other podcasts by simply taking the recommendations suggested while listening to others. It is a fascinating difference over typical radio broadcasting. Where the radio medium is nothing by competition, trying to keep listeners, podcasters recognize the value of cooperation. The more we help one another, the bigger we all grow. The saying, "A rising tide lifts all boats," really does apply to the podcast world.
We also discuss how the word "podcast" has nothing to do with Apple's invention of the iPod. the POD in podcast simply means to Play On Demand. So, you can stumble across a podcast anytime and if you want to binge listen or just jump around, you certainly can. Some shows are episodic, so you may need to go back to the beginning, while others are topic-oriented and can be listened to in any order.
