My drive home takes around 30 minutes – from my seat in my office to the door of my house.
Up until recently I would spend that time making telephone calls to people I had been meaning to call but had not been able to – however, there is a small town called Thornton Dale that I pass through on my way home where there is no mobile/cellphone range whatsoever and for about 10 minutes I loose the call.
About 2 months ago I discovered podcasts – podcasts last about 10 minutes although some are longer and others are much shorter, on average they last about 10 to 12 minutes. I began listening to these as I drove through Thornton (my little blackspot) but then found myself listening to them as soon as I got in to the car to go home.
Now I listen to them whenever I am in the car and I love them because they are teaching me interesting stuff about topics I am passionate about – mainly digital marketing.
My current love is The Digital Marketing Podcast by Target Internet – these two guys deliver clever digital marketing tips and tools quickly and in an easy to understand format – so, thank you Daniel Rowles please keep it up.
